Totally Bummed And Feeling...allergic!

Recommended Posts

Have been gluten free since August 27th. Last two nights I’ve had what seem like allergy-symptoms. During the day when I’m out I’m fine. It’s after I eat dinner at home. Aside from shellfish, I have no known allergies and have never had seasonal allergies. Both times seem to come on in the evening and I wake up the next morning stuffed up. Burning eyes, stuffy nose, sneezing.

 

I can’t figure out if this is a reaction to gluten and if so, where it’s coming from. Our entire kitchen was de-glutened the day I was diagnosed (foods, cutting boards, Teflon pans, wooden spoons, etc.). I haven’t been wearing any lipstick other than gluten-free lip gloss. I’m eating very few foods that are packaged (mostly just fresh fruit, veggies and meat) and those that are, are gluten-free. I’m taking food with me if I go somewhere else. I can’t see a correlation between anything I ate yesterday and today.

 

So incredibly frustrating. Now that I’m gluten-free I just want my body to heal. Every time I have a reaction I feel like it’s a huge setback! It feels like the work I’m doing is being dismantled by gluten or whatever this is that’s affecting me. Ugh!

I'm having the same problem, and I was lactose intolerant before celiac diagnosis.  Google SCD diet.  I read the book and it makes sense, so I'm going to give it a try.  It has you removing all grains, dairy, sugar, and starches from your diet for awhile.  Not an easy thing to do, but if it helps I'm willing to go that route for as long as it takes.  The book is called Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gotschaill (sp?).
