130 Days Without Cc... Reset

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got glutened this weekend. I went home for Thanksgiving, and while my parents are amazingly supportive and helpful, something still slipped through. I didn't recognize that it was gluten until the gut sick started yesterday. I thought I was just tired/dehydrated/stressed and all that. I remember from the last couple times I got traces or those couple times I ate something with wheat (oops) it was all over in 3-4 days. But its been 5 and I'm still having trouble eating because all food and food smells are making me nauseous and my gut is still a balloon. This, of course, is not helpful to recovering back to normal but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. 

 

This has also been the longest stretch I've gone without any CC issues since I had my endoscopy in April so is it possible my reaction is just getting worse because its been so long?

This is just me, but I only had anemia when I was diagnosed.  Now, if I get accidentally glutened, I definitely get sick with tummy issues, body aches, fatigue and crazy itching on my arm, but no rash!  Takes me about a week to feel good.  Others here can be affected longer.  My husband seems to recover in just a day or two, but he's been gluten-free for 12 years and his intestinal tract is probably 100% healed.

 

I eat simple comfort foods and take L-glutamine and probiotics to speed healing.  Not sure if it works, but my brain thinks so and that's what counts!

It really varies from person to person.  Some people find that their symptoms get worse as they heal, others find symptom all but disappear.  I am goinf on 4 years and have had a combo of both.  For the first 18 mo or so my symptoms were far worse if glutened.   Now I find that if glutened the symptoms have almost all but disappeared which means I must be all the more careful not to get anything.  But then the last time I was glutened was almost a year ago so.....  everyone is so different.

i like to think this way:  i feel pretty good almost every day, now that i am healing.  when i was still consuming gluten, i felt BAD every day, but it came on so gradually that i didn't notice it (just a little worse, tired-er, headache was constant, etc, and of course the big D).  and that was the effects of the gluten reaction (plus gut damage)  so, now, when i get gluten, i feel that same bad-ness, only it comes on all at once, in a matter of days, not gradually.  it's the same, just more evident because you're going from feeling pretty *fine*  :)  to feeling like crap pretty fast as a reaction to gluten.  because, i get all the same symptoms that have gone away (except when i get glutened) - no new symptoms - just all at once like getting hit by a truck - POW!! :blink:   if that makes any sense, lolz, it's just my theory.  <also, pretty evident that i, indeed, have been glutened - it's not the flu, it's not food poisoning, it's gluten........ :wacko:   go directly to bed, do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollas  <_<

 

i take extra probiotics, take long hot showers, drink lots of water, blah, blah, blah <just makes me feel like i'm being proactive.  it still takes 14 days to run it's course.   i hope you feel better.
