Topics I've Started

Broccoli & Cauliflower Causing Problems?

15 November 2013 - 06:56 AM

Anyone have any issues with this? I didn't pre-gluten free, I could eat loads of them with no trouble. Fast forward to yesterday, I had some broccoli in my lunch, then at dinner had a roast, some cauliflower and some wine, and this morning I feel like hell. Is this just an isolated me thing, or do others have issues with broccoli and cauliflower too?

Tylenol: Do You Take It Or No?

11 November 2013 - 12:00 PM

I can't find anything that's conclusive; even emailing their customer service didn't help, they just gave me the typical lawyer response. Does anyone here take it and have no issues? I gotta find something now that Advil isn't safe.

Michigan Guy Looking For A Friend...

05 November 2013 - 06:50 AM

It gets really hard sometimes being the only on in my family who is gluten-free. I get a lot of eyerolls if I say something "glutened me", that kinda deal. I'd like to find a friend, locally, or just someone to chat with online who gets what I'm going through. It might improve my mood... I tend to get down in the dumps, especially this time of year with the holidays, having to be gluten-free.

Cleaning My Coffee Pot...

05 November 2013 - 06:46 AM

Anyone have any tips here? Before I was gluten-free, I'd use white vinegar, but I react to white vinegar despite it being gluten-free (found this out because I cleaned my coffee pot with white vinegar and am currently feeling less than stellar). What can I use that won't make me feel like $#!+...?

Spicy Food?

22 October 2013 - 07:51 AM

I've been gluten free for about 3 years now, and am overall feeling MUCH better. I've had the typical ups and downs that most of us have while I find my limits within my new diet. I've noticed something and was wondering if anyone else had experienced it, and if there's anything I can do to alleviate the symptoms while they're there.


One of my favorite things to cook since going gluten-free has become Mexican food, I love it, and it's so easy to keep gluten-free. Anyways, I've been using a lot of La Costena jalapenos and chipotles, and if it's a one shot deal, my body is fine. I've noticed though that if I have spicy foods like this over a longer period of time (I usually make enough to yield left overs, my work is in the middle of nowhere, so bringing a lunch is easier than going out) that I'll end up with what feels like gastritis. My insides will feel irritated and burning, I'll have acid reflux, slight issues feeling like I'm going to dry heave (this was a big sign that lead me to going gluten-free), a pain between my shoulder blades (from the acid reflux), I'll sweat a bit at night, little dabs of blood on the toilet paper, etc. This will be horrible in the mornings, and occasionally wake me up during the night. After I've gotten it out of my system, I'll still feel irritated but it'll ease a lot, and eventually go away if I go off the spicy food.


Has anyone else encountered problems with spicy food? If so, what are some ways to cope with the symptoms while they're there? It's pretty obvious I need to cut back on spicy food, but I just love it so much.
