LONG time reader, first time poster.
I feel almost silly asking this, but can you physically feel gluten damaging your body if you have celiac disease? I have been a diagnosed celiac for 4+ years at age 17, and while at first I was TOO rebellious (as in I didn't give a dang and ate whatever I wanted because "you can't stop me!"), I have since grown out of that awful mindset. However, long story short, I got BIG TIME glutened last night at work. As in, straight up shovelling wheat-based pasta into my body. While I'm obviously not going to feel well, I almost can feel like there are holes being chewed in my body when I get glutened. Is that just me? I'm not actually feeling the damage, am I? This has been a curiosity of mine for years because that is exactly what it feels like.
Thanks guys! This forum has been a valuable resource for me for years now, and hopefully will continue for years to come!
When I visted my chinese doctor once for nuero muscular problems after a similar episode( we all rebel sometimes consciously or not) he said"why you do that?". So, why you do that? might be useful to explore that for yourself. And yes, i feel bad when i do that, and can feel my muscles responding poorly, and I feel clumsy, and guilty. Hang in there,and learn.
