Is It Really This Horrible? Does It Get Better?

Recommended Posts

So I've read a ton about how awful it is to get glutened, but the experience is pretty unbelievable. I'm months gluten-free and feeling generally better, but I got glutened Friday (still not sure what it was, so it must have been something small); Saturday was awful: nauseau, lethargy, general discomfort; Sunday was worse: bad mood, generally feeling crappy; Monday I felt better, but had a huge migraine; Tuesday was almost normal, but a medium migraine. Today I'm feeling so-so, no migraine yet. So some tiny glutening, and five days of misery? Is this how it's always going to be?

Keeping in mind that everyone is different, I will add that when the rare glutening happens to me, I no longer suffer for days.  In fact, having been gluten-free for 10 years now, my gut is the lesser of the reaction now and that is a huge change because I used to have extreme gut reactions.  Neuro symptoms like anxiety come into play and more minor, manageable gut reactions.  I think it is because I have healed well and now my gut doesn't go into a week long frenzy when it happens.  So......I would say that things do change and the longer you are gluten-free and heal, the reactions may be much lower in severity or you suffer for a couple of days only.  That was my experience so keep the faith it will not always be this way for you!

It could be that bad. If you don't have a definite OMG moment - "what? You thought my gluten-free pancake mix was too runny so you added a little regular Bisquick?" It can be hard to know if it's really gluten you are reacting to. It could be a stomach virus, food poisioning ( not what yours sounds like), a reaction to another food, a combo of different things that you are unlucky enough to have hit at once ( virus, pollen allergies and hormone swing). Just some examples.

LOL Oh no, did someone do that to you once?  If not, great example.   :lol:

 

Yeah,  being glutened varies a lot between people, and symptoms can change over time so this may not be the way it always is.

 

I also have a theory that getting glutened symptoms become more obvious as we start to recover.  When you aren't sick all the time it is easier to notice when you do feel worse.  LOL

 

Hope you are better by the weekend.
