Really Bad Glutening

Recommended Posts

I accidentally ate something with malt vinegar on Friday. I threw up twice but had no other symptoms so I thought it was just food poisoning or stress or just having a weird stomach. I ate a half serving of the food Saturday around eleven am...and by one pm I was in awful shape. Nausea, some vomiting, awful stomach cramps of evil, headache, body aches, sweating.

 

I vomited every forty-five minutes until about ten am on Sunday. I tried to hydrate in between but it made things worse. By Sunday evening my husband brought me to the ER where they gave me a liter of IV saline, two doses of IV zofran, and a dose of dialudid (they said it was an antispasmodic and would help me to sleep...) I felt much better after leaving- my stomach was cramping and I felt a little weak and achy but I got home and managed to hydrate as directed and get some sleep.

 

I slept from about midnight to seven am on Monday. Woke up feeling awful- headache, dizziness, falling over when I tried to stand up. We went to immediate care and they directed me to the ER (at this point I was pretty listless, peeing dark yellow/brown, dozing off). At the ER they checked me for UTI, kidney infection, gallbladder, pancreatitis, and a few other things I didn't catch. Nothing abnormal except for the crippling stomach/vomiting which led to the dehydrating. Two bags of saline, a couple of IV doses of a stronger anti-nausea medicine, felt a lot better. I urinated and it was a normal color!

 

Well I ate peanutbutter toast today- vomiting commenced. Trying to stay hydrated again. I have an appointment with my primary care tomorrow- anything I should ask? I'm wondering if its time to go back to the gastro.

I had something similar a few months ago -- horrific vomiting and diarrhea for several days, I suspect it was norovirus.  Primary care seems like the right place for you to be going.  Good luck!!!

Sorry to hear you are so ill.  It could be that on top of the mild glutening you also caught a bug which helped you be extra sick.  Sounds like you are doing the right thing by hydrating, hope you feel better soon!

Looks like it was just a really bad reaction to gluten- i haven't even been cross contaminated in over a year, according to the gastro the reactions can get worse the longer you're gluten-free.

 

I've got a gastro appointment in a week to make sure there's no Chron's and to schedule an endoscopy to check on healing. My blood relative is considered refractory Celiac so they're thinking that could be part of it.

 

they really don't think it was norovirus or anything, sort of wish they did!
