I am so new to all this. I only a week ago was diagnosed celiac. I ate some glutenfree noodles today almost immediately had stomach cramps. I now have heart burn and belly bloated, so discouraging I was so happy for the first time in my life I had a semiflat belly. :( I haven't eating many grains, ate quinia the other day and had mild tummy pain. I feel like such a wussy!

Welcome to the forum!
 

I made your reply into a new post, so you can get more personalized conversation.  What brand of noodles did you eat?  It can take a long time for things to calm down after going gluten-free, so just stick to it and things should continue to improve overall.  Feel free to post any questions you need help with!

Welcome to the board.  :)

It can take weeks or months for symptoms to really calm down even if you are eating safely gluten-free. Your belly will get flat again and start staying flat for longer periods of time.  Celiac recovery is often two steps forward and one step back - Just hang in there.

What else did you eat with the noodles?  Gluten is "hidden" in a lot of other products you would not expect.  What have you done to get gluten out of your diet?  It takes a while to see any real improvement with your system too.

Did you use the same old colander to drain them?  Its very hard to get every little hole clean from sticky noodle residue.  And what else did you eat with them?  What did you eat before them?  

 

It takes much longer than a week to heal.  It could just be a messed up GI system.

Welcome to the forum! :)  If you ate the noodles with soy sauce that was a likely problem.  Most soy sauce has gluten in  it.  But it really does take some time for things to settle down in our GI tracts after going gluten-free.  You may find you react to many foods for a while that may or may not have gluten in them.  It's a good idea to keep your diet very simple for a while to lessen the chance of glutenings.  Then slowly branch out and add more foods one at a time.
