I was working at a anime convention this weekend setting up and running A/V for panel rooms, I know I was handling a bunch of stuff, and around gluten eaters EVERYWHERE, people were walking around eating stuff, and I had to work with equipment others were using while snacking on gluten foods.....and one meal I went and fixed in my room I rushed and did not wash my hands....I got glutened from touch CC, but I was not vomiting like I normally would, either not enough there or perhaps it changed again. I instead about a hour later started zoning out and having brain fog, loopy thoughts repeating, anxiety, heighten pulse up to 183bpm then a hour later EXTREME gut pain to the point of tears. pulse drop to the 30s and I had to sleep it off, and since then I have had extreme constipation, NO feeling in my hands (I pulled a pan from the oven this morning...no cup towel), and I noticed I have red splotches on my face? NEVER seen this, I also have little pimples on my back and chest....NOT seen these since I was a kid.....oddest thing was NO swollen lymp, NO D, and NO vomiting.....the ever evolving celiac response I guess.......I almost questioned if it was gluten, but the numbness, and C is a SURE sign for me of CC in the smallest of amounts....the extreme of it right now tells me I was glutened by a decent amount.

Ouch. Sorry to hear this, you've been so careful. I wonder if it's related to a particular kind of gluten? I find I react differently to barley malt than wheat gluten, perhaps you've been CC'ed by a relatively unusual form?

I do find my reactions changing over time. I recently got a rash along my bicep and now have a swollen lymph which I think is down to CC.  I'd not had a rash there before, so maybe my responses are changing too.

Hope you're feeling better soon and that you managed to enjoy at least some of the convention.

The con was bad for me this year, over worked, poisoned, forgot medications, bed ridden, had a room mate cancel and I was stuck with a huge bill....yeah no fun at all I even left early.

OH and hoping I get better....thanks but I JUST glutened myself like a idiot I know it, just waiting for it to hit. I made some salsa with chorizo seasoning for a chorizo flavored salsa and took a sample to my dad.....after he tried it used the EXACT same sample spoon to double check it myself, then it hit me, and I asked when and what he last ate, was toast less then 4 hours ago....so yeah pretty sure I just screwed myself.

That's terrible. I've been wondering why you haven't been around last few days. I Should have remembered your con. I'm so sorry it wasn't what you were hoping for. We all tend to make mistakes when we're excited about stuff, makes our brains go a bit wonky.

hope your dads mouth wasn't dirty anymore. Good luck to you. You are missed here!
