Atypical Symptoms Of Glutening?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed in June and have been gluten-free since then. I've had a few accidental glutenings and am curious about my symptoms. What typically happens is the following:

Immediate abdominal cramping and bloating and brain fog

Constipation for a day or two

And then explosive diarrhea, along with joint pain, weakness in extremities - like dropping things out of my hands, mood changes, and an overall feeling of having a mild flu.

Is this glutening? Do other people have the delayed diarrhea? And what's a good fix? I increase probiotics and eat bland food.

Any suggestions?

It sure sounds like Glutening to me. Suggestions? Check every thing you put into your mouth for gluten. Every single label! be careful where you eat, what you eat. Also what you drink!! Try and eat as healthy as possible stay away from boxed and bagged foods. Eat whole fresh meats and vegetables .. Even check your seasonings. I found some with gluten in it. You have to READ EVERY SINGLE LABEL!!!

Probably cc is my guess.  Eating out is like playing "Russian Roulette".  

 

Dealing with the after effects is hard.  Treat the individual issues as best you can.  Be aware that every time this happens, damage is being done.  

 

Hope you recover quickly.

I agree, it was probably cross contamination.  

 

My last "glutening" was at a national chain with a gluten-free menu and they even had a gluten-free hamburger bun!  If it's a very nice restaurant and the manager and the chef come over to talk to me, then I feel pretty safe.   We've walked out of plenty of places went they give us lame answers to our questions or when you get the "blank" look -- "Huh, what's gluten?"

 

Only time will help.  

 

Take care.
