Glutened myself :(

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure I just glutened myself. Twice!! First let me start off by saying my nausea has finally started letting up. (Clapping excitingly) The first time I felt a problem was last night. About a half hour after dinner. I became more bloated than I already am and I felt a lot of pressure. An hour after dinner I started feeling pressure in my chest and it seemed like I had to take a deep breath just to catch my breath. It let up a bit by bedtime, but I wasn't able to sleep at all last night. I've struggled with insomnia for the past 20 years so I didn't think anything of it until my Trazadone didn't work. Which has never happened. I got a few hours of sleep and when I woke up I had really sharp pains in my stomach and had to rush to the bathroom. It was an unusual amount. I had breakfast today and the same reaction as last night and more sharp pains and diarrhea plus nausea. The common denominator was store brand cooking spray. I used it on the pan I cooked the chicken on and I used it in another pan this morning when I made my eggs. Both pans and utensils were gluten free. I didn't see anything ominous in the ingredients and my gluten-free app doesn't recognize most store brands, so yes, I was playing Russian Roulette. I am trying not to be mad at myself. It was an accident and there is a learning curve. However, I am still irritated because the nausea is going away and I was actually going to leave the house today for the first time in 2 weeks. My son get's married this Saturday and I am desperate to feel better so I can enjoy myself and last the night.

Don't get mad at yourself. Accept there will be some slip ups as you learn the diet. In this case its not certain in any case, could be something else you ate didnt agree with you. Have you checked the ingredients on the spray?  

You can get spray bottles which you fill with regular oil and use those instead. That would remove any doubt:
