I Feel Like Hot Garbage

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I went to visit family today. Made food last night for today and brought snacks.  Didn't eat a thing besides what I brought, even brought utensils, ate from my containers. I had bakery on main certified gluten free oatmeal for breakfast, which has quinoa and amaranth too. Took enzymes before eating and I still had a little pain and now I had D. Ughhh last night my bf was out with friends and ate a bunch of trash (no gluten allowed in our house), he has a gluten issue but no gene for celiac. I think it's a fodmap problem. He was up till 3 which means I was up off and on till then also. 

 

Not sure why I'm feeling like trash, it is impossible that I had gluten, but I'm concerned that I'm having a problem with oats (been ok with quinoa and amaranth) is it possible that lack of sleep and family stress is what's going on?

Might be a good idea to drop the gluten-free oats for bit. I think it is advised we not add them into our diet until we have healed well. Drop them and then when you have been feeling okay for a while add them back in and see if you react.

There are some celiacs without one of the two commonly tested for genes. Hopefully your BF had other testing done as well before going gluten free. It sounds like he knows he has an issue with gluten but uses a lack of diagnosis as a reason to binge now and then. If his reactions are severe he should avoid it whether he has an official diagnosis of not. 

Sorry you are feeling so poorly right now and hope you improve soon.

I can't deal with his food issues, I really need to watch out for myself for now. He thinks I might have gotten gluten in my mouth from the kids. They had pancakes before we saw them and cookies while we were there. I was so careful not to touch my face, so irritated with myself! My stomach is still feeling rumbly. I was unsure about the oats, I googled but I couldn't find anything about if it was ok to eat gluten free oats after being recently diagnosed. Usually any cc leads to neurological issues for me like feeling dizzy, wobbly, tired and foggy. I felt like that before we arrived at my family's house. Then after I had stomach issues, I either ingested crumbs from the kids somehow or the stress is just bothering me from my grams nagging me and the traveling.

Day 5 of feeling like poo here, my couch is my best friend.  Debating if I want to actually brave going to the doctor or suck it up some more and see if it gets better on it's own.  I am just worried I am heading to a bout of diverticulitis right now.

If you're in the Midwest, it could be shegella. There have been outbreaks here in South Dakota, Texas, Indiana, and other places. If you're going to pick it up, it would likely be from kids. They say it can last from 5 to 7 days or in some cases even more. Severe D, bad stomach cramps, and overwhelming fatigue.

User001, didn't you mention you were in NJ? I too am in NJ in the philly area. It has been rediculously humid here, and sometimes that can give me issues. Maybe it could be a little bug on top of the weather.

yes, i am in new jersey. I think my body doesn't handle stress well. I think between that and the oatmeal, might have done it. feeling lethargic and headachy today.

Boudin??

 

Yesterday we got a shkar( you know the ones who make those rolls) brand pizza and it was sooo delicious. The perfect cheese to sauce ratio. My bf cooked it on the oven rack so it was nice and crispy too. He sauteed some onions and green peppers for the top and chopped some black olives. totally hit the spot since my grandmother kept asking if we wanted pizza- all day while we were visiting.

 

Tonight I took some chicken, bell pepper, jalepeno, garlic carrot and onion and cooked that up in the wok and added some ginger and curry powder (badia is certified gluten free!) and made like a curry fried rice on the deck.. it was delicious. ate wayyyy too much.

Just saw what you were eating in the dinner thread.  If you are having gut issues, some of these foods can be pretty rough.  Also, hopefully the oven rack has not had a gluten pizza cooked on it recently?  

 

You might want to try some simpler, non-processed foods for a while until you are consistently feeling good.  Then add back in one or 2 processed or harder to digest foods at a time to see if you can handle them again.

I am actually feeling pretty good today, but thanks karen.

 

I am pretty sure it was the oatmeal because I started having symptoms on the ride up to my grandmas. Then my uncle lives downstairs and smokes inside and the smell kind of emanates through the house, that always makes me feel like crap. My symptoms were confined to after I ate the oatmeal till before our late dinner.The next morning I was a bit tired but my stomach was just hungry.

 

My house is 100% gluten free. We never made pizza before on the oven rack, but it has been scrubbed and run through the dishwasher anyway. Curry didn't seem to cause me any problems, I didn't think it would, it never has before. Quite the opposite actually, always has made me feel better than other foods. I attribute that to the tumeric and ginger, which are two things that have always helped my stomach and even my arthritis.

I think you may be in denial.  Those foods, even if they make you feel good, are not useful for your gut right now!  You are constantly posting that you feel like crap but don't seem to want to follow advice!  I think you should stick to very simple meals with no spices added.  You could have had just the Chicken and and carrots.  If you think oatmeal is a problem then don't eat it.  Stay away from all processed foods including pizza.  That's really all the advice I can give.  I hope you will give your gut a chance to heal before adding  the junk to it.  

 

Wish you well, I won't bother you anymore about this!

If you have reactive celiac (not sure on the labeling there) but the general idea is the lining of the intestines will respond as if glutened (to some degree of being glutened) simply by being stressed. It's know as reactive. I definantly would agree about getting glutened from the kids. I got two and they put hands, toes, toys, etc. right up in my face and sometimes straight in my mouth. Very irritating. Do you have gluten enzymes that you can take to help process through what you've gotten in your system?
