Exactly when did you think you last had a gluten exposure?  Once triggered, your antibodies can ramp up and can last for weeks or even months.   For example, when I have had a gluten exposure, I become lactose intolerant for a month or so.  Actually, it can hurt to digest ANYTHING for me.  It is one reason that when I  have been glutened, I make a pot of mushy stew or chicken soup and eat that for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  As soon as food hits my small intestine, it is so painful.  

The ranch might have too much dairy for you right now if your celiac disease is flaring.   My gluten-free hubby eats it without issues, but I can not tolerate garlic and onions, so I do not eat ranch dressing or dip.

I second Cylcinglady, lactose intolerance is very common with this disease, you should remove all dairy for a few months. 
What brand chicken nuggets did you have? Did you make your own unbreaded and plain? Could it be an intolerance to another ingredient, after exposure to gluten we often develop a new food intolerance or sensitivity? 

On a personal note, I use Primal Kitchen Ranch which is dairy free, soy free, gluten free, grain free. They even have a Vegan Version.  I also sometimes go light and use Big Axe Spice Farmstead Seasoning which is like ranch in a shaker.

You should probably stick to a soft mushy diet for while til you heal a bit more, go easy on the carbs to avoid gas.

I bet you are doing a great job.  It might be that your GI tract is inflamed.  Just stick to simple foods that have less than five ingredients.  Better with just one ingredient.   Eat easy things like plain chicken, veggies and fruit.  Avoid processed foods until you see some progress.  It is just as easy to bake chicken as it is to bake chicken nuggets.  Avoid dairy, but when you see progress, add in yogurt or hard cheese as these contain less lactose.  

For lunch, I had a hamburger patty with cheese, fresh green beans and 1/2 banana.  Keep it simple.  

Also try to avoid grains in general just until you see improvement.    The gluten free watchdog reported that gluten-free products containing oats were the worst offenders in not meeting the 20 ppm standard.  

Again, just short term fixes until you feel better.  

Hang in there!

My husband eats the Cucumber Ranch all the time & has no problem with it.

I agree with the others, keep it simple until you start feeling better. No processed foods at all & ditch the grains for now. Just fresh meats, fruits & veggies.

If the test report summary says “The sample tested below the lower limit of quantification for the assay used of 5 parts per million of gluten” that’s good! It means the test could not detect any gluten. There might be a teeny, teeny, tiny amount so small that the test could not detect it but it probably is truly gluten free.  If there were 1 or 2 parts per million it would be very unusual for such a tiny amount to hurt someone with celiac. The complete test reports may list Extraction 1 and Extraction 2, again if those are <5ppm (which means less than 5 parts per million) that is good.  

Hope this helps, if not just let me know what needs more explanation.

They tell you what was tested - skip how it was tested - just know it was tested correctly.  At the end it willl tell you it tested less than 5 PPM .  And that is great!  Or, the few things that test as containing gluten , are usually share with the public
