Waiting For Reaction.

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting to get sick. I accidentily ate something with gluten tonight. I forgot to check. The full size candy was gluten free, but not the minis. So Ii guess I will be able to check my exact reaction time. I hate gluten!!!!!!!!!!! I was so exhausted when this happened and it is just going to get  worse before it gets better. Anything I should do between now and then to make this better?

You know..... Unless the minis said they contain gluten.....I wouldn't spend my time worrying and making myself sick. Just because a company won't say something is gluten-free, doesn't mean it has gluten. It just means they ran it by a lawyer.

Yes I wish it was just me worrying over nothing. When it tasted weird I checked the label. It said it had wheat. I forgot the first rule always check the label. I was half asleep and still had 2 more hours of work. I didn't realize these went the regular size until I started eating them. Please don't yell at me. I am kicking myself enough already.

Drink some water and go to bed. If you have a reaction...then you will. just sitting around waiting for it and worrying , makes it worse. If it wakes you up in a few hours, well.... At least you got a couple of hours of sleep.

Sorry this happened to you. I hope it isn't too painful of a lesson. I don't know what your reactions are so it is hard to say what might help. If you get stomach pain maybe keep some Pepto liquid on hand. If your symptoms include muscle or joint pain try an anti-inflammatory like Aleve or asprin or whatever you usually take. Bengay or Tiger Balm might help with that too. Keep some Immodium on you in case D hits at an inconvient time. I say this even though if at all possible you don't want to take something that is going to stop the D unless you really have to be out and about. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do to stop the antibody attack. The most you can do is try to relieve the symptoms.

Your reaction could take up to a week to appear, although most that react see the reaction sooner. You may luck out and not have much of a reaction at all. I'll keep my fingers crossed for that outcome.

What candy was this?  Just want to avoid it myself.  I haven't found a difference in the ingredients between most full size and smaller sized candy bars.  But I have noticed the little tiny ones, that aren't really bars, - more of a round thingy, seem to have different ingredients.

I hope you followed this advice because it's really all you can do. Hope you are okay this morning.

 

Worrying always makes things worse in my experience (about anything in life) and the anticipation of 'what may occur" is often a useless waste of energy.

 

So what candy are we talking about...so we can all know, just in case?

It was mini rollos. I was half asleep and didn't realize they were mini until after I started eating them. Thanks for all your help.

The good news is, there is a good chance there was no gluten in them. If there is, it will be very very very small amount.

Ingredients

Ingredients: Sugar, Glucose-Fructose (from wheat and/or corn), Milk ingredients, Cocoa Butter, Unsweetened Chocolate, Modified Palm and Palm Kernel Oil, Lactose, Soya Lecithin, Polyglycerol Polyricinoleate, Salt, Artificial Flavor, Sodium Carbonate.

CONTAINS: MILK INGREDIENTS

Made on equipment that also processes Wheat.

I wouldn't eat them but, glucose fructose is so highly processed that it is unlikely to have any gluten in it. Machines are cleaned. The possible gluten hit is very low and may not even happen.

I am outside my regular reaction  time. So I'm going to assume that the processing got rid of the gluten. The bag that I had only said that the syrup was made from wheat (didn't give corn as an option.) But I feel like I got safe by  the skin of my teeth. A good reminder to always check labels.
