Thank you so much for the information!

In Topic: Are Sympoms Worse After Not Ingesting Gluten And Then Ingesting It?

17 January 2013 - 03:37 PM

I was wondering the same thing! I went gluten free for the first time recently. I went for about two weeks. I grabbed a bite of popcorn from the movie theater thinking that it would be safe. Not long after my throat felt kinda like it was tighter... Not like an allergy...just felt weird. Within an hour or so my stomach bloated up like crazy/hurt. It felt like there was a bowling ball in my belly. And THEN later on that night my boyfriend saw that I had this weird rash all over my back!! Ive never had that symptom before! So I looked up info on the popcorn. It said that some popcorn salts/butters might contain gluten through means such as artificial flavorings etc. Anyhoo...the rash thing was new and thats why I was wondering if my body was freaking out more than normal because it was used to being gluten free.


I am new to the gluten free diet, and still trying to figure out exactly what is wrong with me. I have started a gluten free diet as a trial, and after going completely gluten free for two weeks I accidentally ingested some gluten in a rotisserie chicken. I had the same throat problem as you! I thought I was crazy! It felt like I had something stuck in my throat. And my stomach got really distended like I was 3 months pregnant, cramped like crazy, and I thought for sure I was going to throw up. It's reassuring to read that I am not the only one going through this

My blood work only lists IgG and IgA. It doesn't break those tests down the way you did. I will ask my doctor about it. I have been gluten free for 16 days now, and have felt better than I have in years. But my symptoms have started to recur after eating the publix chicken(see above post). Not sure if it is gluten or something else. It's been over 48 hours and I'm still not feeling well. Had an ultra sound of my abdomen today to rule out other problems. I see my dr next week, so hopefully I will get some answers.

Wow! That is such a relief! I was worried I might accidentally have gluten and spend the trip miserable

Thanks so much for your replies. My husband and daughter ate the chicken and were fine. The one I ate was the barbecue flavor, and it definitely has gluten. There are autoimmune issues in my family-my mother has 7 different ones, and I'm wondering if she has celiac but doesn't know it. My daughter has stomach problems and eczema, and I'm wondering if she might have an allergy as well. The tests I had done were the IgG IgA. Are there others tests I should do? I know having gone gluten free will alter any biopsies I may need, but I am desperate for relief!
