In Topic: When Glutened To You Feel Terrible Instantly?

I suppose it's different for everyone, but for me it's usually a day or the morning after.



For me it's about 1/2 hour to an hour for the stabbing pain in the duodenum to start. Then it's all downhill from there...

In the past for injury-related inflammation I've found that large doses of fish oil capsules worked amazingly well. I'd take around 12-16 a day (reasoning that fish oil is food) and the efficacy was superior to ibuprofen for me. Usually I just use naproxen sodium for inflammation but if the max dose isn't doing the trick I add some fish oil and it helps. After my recent glutening which resulted in awful stomach distension followed by days of ab pain I found drinking a lot of natural ginger ale (i.e. sugar, water, ginger) helped. Or at least was a good placebo. I haven't yet tried the fish oil treatment for ab pain since it resolved after a few days so I can't say for sure it would help.

hey there, y'all.

I have this personality trait where I'll have an idea and then get obsessive over it for a while before settling down again. now I am in an obsessive phase.

my obsession is CYCLING ACROSS AMERICA! W00T!

Just note that I don't plan on doing this until 2014 or 2015, and since that's a long ways away, the plan is likely to change several times before it is put into motion.


Obsessive phase over some idea? You must be related to me! Cycling is a passion of mine. I don't do any long distance touring but am planning on trying some randonneuring rides in 2012. If you're putting in 3500 miles to cross the US consider doing it in comfort. Have you considered doing one of the group tours run by a group like Pactour? Also if you like to mix your long distance cycling with insanity there's the Race Across America held every summer.

As far as work goes, I have been avoiding the lunch room and eating out of my own lunch bag but I have alot of co-workers and avoiding their crumbs has been a challenge especially since they dont confine their messes to the lunchroom. I just wash my hands alot and keep them away from my face.


I eat lunch somewhat late to avoid a crowded lunchroom. I have sort of a ritual that involves wiping down the microwave, my spot at a table, and the chair with a towel with some cleaning spray. I use my own utensils and never eat anything people have brought in, except fruit which I'll re-wash. Also, anything with gluten is banned from my office and if a co-worker shows up with a donut I'll ask them to come back later after they wash their hands while pointing to my "Gluten is the Enemy" coffee mug. This is all somewhat of a pain in the neck but it works for me - small company though, I don't how I'd manage in a big place with a giant cafeteria.

I have a coffee mug that says "Gluten is the Enemy" that I use at work. It gets the point across, but I've been here a few years and they're used to me and my sense of humor. Some humor goes a long way, in my experience, in making others feel more comfortable about my issues.
