What Happens When You Get Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about the reactions you all get if you get glutened. I myself have only been gluten free since Nov. 25, with just a couple of slip-ups (a bunch of those blasted Xmas cookies I made for the family found their way into my stomach ). Anyhow, I'm just coming out of 3 horrible days in which my reaction or whatever it was consisted of horrible stomach pain and aching muscles, especially joints. A bit of nausea too. And slight dizziness one day. One night I couldn't sleep at all, I lay there the whole night awake. Does any of this sound familiar?

Very familiar! When I get glutened with wheat, I am sick for a few days, but if I get processed soy or corn, I am sick for a few weeks. Regular gluten gives me diarrhea and once my tummy is empty, it cant go much farther--soy and corn constipate me and the stomach cramps last for days. I have never eaten anything on purpose--the only times I have been glutened were accidental. Once I finally knew why I was so sick, I never had the desire to eat something that I knew would make me ill. I also get hives if I get gluten on my skin. Deb

If I get quite a bit of gluten I get very nauseated. Then follows increased bm's and then constipation. Also I have severe aching in my legs and I am exhausted. Also more irritable unable to handle life as well for a day or so. It isn't fun at all. I would never willingly gluten myself. My tests were borderline for celiac and I didn't have a biopsy, because I had already been gluten free for 5 weeks and didn't want to start eating gluten to make myself sick, but I did do a few tests on myself. I learned though and now I am firmly gluten-free for life.

Sounds very familiar.

I've been taking L-glutamine faithfully and it has cut down on my physical reactions immensely (the D and C). But I still get real achey legs and horrible fatigue with some brain fog. The L-glutamine really does help with gi health. It was mentioned quite awhile back by one of the regulars.
