Having A Gluten Reaction

22 March 2004 - 09:25 AM

Hi all,
I am new to this board but I am in need of some support!

About 3 weeks ago I vacationed in Vancouver BC and thought I was doing well at staying away from gluten. Yet some how it must have snuck in... I have been sick ever since.

I have been really good at staying away from gluten since I was diagnosed about a year ago. The last 4 months have been really good. I have actually been feeling better than I have for a very long time. And now this. I am still not sure what symptoms I can "blame" on celiacs and if maybe I am dealing with something else so I was hoping you all could share your experiences with me.

So it has been over 3 weeks and my symptoms seem to be getting worse instead of better. I was on a retreat this past weekend in which I could not leave my cabin due to fear of being too far from the toilet. I have had not apetite for the past 3 days. Some days I'll eat a bannana, or some days I will have a little more.

It seems to get worse instead of better. I ended up taking imodium AD so I could stand the 7 hour car ride home. Next week I am supposed to leave for a vacation of a lifetime to Mexico and I am afraid I will be nothing but sick the entire time.

Do you have any advice? Words of wisdom? Tricks that help ease the symptoms?

Do you find that your symptoms are worse if you have been with out gluten for a very long time?

I appreciate your listening and support!
