Accidental Glutening Affecting Sleep?

Hello Celiacs

 

On Saturday I ate what was supposed to be a slice of gluten free birthday cake.  I now wonder if the baker thought to check the baking powder, cocoa, decorations - etc.   I certainly should have! Because Saturday night I had a nightmare.  Sunday ditto.  Both nights woke up in a cold sweat.  Monday Morning my stomach hurt, felt ill at lunch and by the evening terrible chills, no sweat, but took me two hours to get to sleep.  Slept OK but next morning D.  Then kind of OK day but last night woke up twice, hot and sweating. D again in the morning.  Chills again today. Now my legs ache.  Not sure if it is another virus or gluten. Not really looking forward to going to bed tonight.  

 

Does this sound like gluten to any of you - I mean, I'm surprised the symptoms didn't hit full force Saturday evening.  Would welcome your thoughts.

Sweats, chills, body aches?  That sounds like the flu.  Have you been running a fever?  I have had it all this past month:  flu, intestinal virus and finally a cold.  Six weeks of being ill!  I got all three, hubby and kid only two!  Lucky them!  

 

I'm finally well.  Whew!  I guess I had to make up for all the years that I avoided getting sick.

This bug is taking ages to resolve.  Still stomach cramps and night sweats, a week on.  I suddenly thought just now... I had just finished a course of  antibiotics the week before I got it, do you think the antibiotics might have taken out the "good bacteria" from my gut and that's why it's taking so long to budge?  Or do you think it's just now I'm a celiac, we get stuck with these things for far longer.  Any thoughts much appreciated.

It likely is just a bad flu bug....plenty of folks without Celiac are suffering this winter.

 

As for Celiac making it worse....if you were still ingesting gluten - maybe, but since you are now living gluten free you will be less likely to catch things as your health improves and your immune system becomes stronger.
