Cc Or Cold?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Well, you know how Celiacs are, any time we get sick, or something unusual is going on, the first thing we wonder is What did I eat!?

 

I've had a weird sore throat all this week. I was wiped on the weekend, and on tuesday stayed home cause I was exausted, but didn't have any cold symptoms other than a scratchy sore throat, and a general icky feeling in my mouth and throat. Also nauseous with slight stomach pain, and a cough. It's not my usual glutened/soyed feeling. It could be mild seasonal allergies, or possibly strep (please don't be strep!)

 

The only non-cooked-by-me thing I've had in the past week was dinner out on Saturday, which was a lovely chickpea salad-type dish. The wait staff knew their stuff, and there were few items on the menu with gluten, so while cc is always possible, I didn't get any usual glutening signs, just my stomachs usual protest and me making it digest so many chickpeas, and even that wasn't bad/

 

Anyway, my energy has come back since tuesday, but I still have this weird sore throat/nausea feeling. Should I mark it down as CC? or should I get myself to the clinic if it's not gone in a couple days (that'll be a week since it started). I've been gargling with salt water, but not enough to make a difference. Need to step up that, and apple cider vinegar, see if I can kill it.

 

Anyway, any advice would be welcome. Don't want to go to the doctor if I don't have to.

 

Cheers

Peg

I would, we're it me, assume it was a cold, but wouldn't go in - with mild symptoms, these things can linger for longer than a week. I might go in after two or three weeks....

I had  the flu in February. I never get the flu. :angry:  Guess it was my turn.

 

I was not CCed. I felt like death warmed over...it was awful for several days and then, the hubs got it. WHY?? He even got the flu shot!

So, we filed it under "sh*t happens because we go to the gym and people sneeze and touch things and well...

.....

 

Hon. sometimes we get "sick" just like everyone else.

 

I am saying...do not assume gluten is the culprit every time you get a sore throat or a pimple or a back ache.

Sometimes, it is something else. And soon, it will pass.

 

Drink hot liquids and rest.

 

Take care.  I hope you feel better soon!

thanks guys.

I didn't really think it was cc, but hey, you never know.

I'm attacking it with apple cider vinegar, and I'm still the same in a couple days I'll get it checked out, to know what's up. No way am I taking antibiotics unless I absolutely have to.

Yep, I had the evil flu about a month ago, both me and the man. Worst cold I've had in a while.

 

Anyway, thanks for being my sounding board.

 

Have a great weekend

Peg
