I was diagnosed celiac in April this year after an Colonoscopy and Endoscopy and so far I have stuck to gluten-free foods and felt the best I have done for a few years. On Sunday I decided I would like some red grapes......bad move! I have been ill for the past two days and never want to see another red grape in my life! Has anyone else got problems eating red grapes?

I think this might be a tannin issues or a fructose issue. Of course it could just be a food intolerance or sensitivity.
If tannins, do you feel ill with black teas or red wines? I  have heard of tannins causing various issues from straight vomiting, gastroparaisis, and odd things like headaches.
Fructose intolerance issues or related to SIBO Candida can cause bloating, gas, distention and extreme pain. In the case of a intolerance related to the inability to break down fructose due ot enzyme issues you can also get vomiting or diarrhea. Of course a really bad issues of the other two can cause the same thing.

Food sensitivities can be a issue of you body just not liking certain foods. I used to have this issues olives, sesame, pea protein and even iceberg lettuce. All of which have gone away over the years. I have gotten new ones that just roll in out of no where for no reasons like my recent issues with spinach just making me vomit for no reason...it will probably go away in 6 months to a year.
I have others I have had for much longer, like peanuts, soy protein, pickles, etc. that just leave me sick sometimes with vomiting for hours.

I guess we are trying to say that fresh grapes when properly cleaned, are SAFE as is any other fruit or vegetable for someone who has celiac disease or NCGS.  The odds that your grapes had been dusted with gluten crumbs during harvest and at the store are slim to none.  Now, did anyone else in your house handle the grapes?  Do you allow gluten into the house or do you have safe practices in place to avoid cross contamination?  

I have celiac disease.  I know that a gluten exposure does not really ramp up for me for at least a day.  I might have tiny symptoms of being “off”.  Then my symptoms really get worse.  And they last for well over a month.  I have gone in twice to my GI to run lab tests just to confirm a gluten exposure because my symptoms are not always consistent or the length of time it takes for me to heal.  

My hubby had been gluten free 12 years before me.  So, I knew the gluten-free diet well.  But during my first year, I was having symptoms.  No gluten in my house.  Rarely ate out.  What was it?  I kept a food diary.  Learned that Xanthan Gum made me sick.  I also learned that I can not eat out unless the restaurant  is dedicated gluten-free, I personally talk to the chef, or the place has great online reviews written by celiacs.  

You are pretty new to the diet and are still in the healing process (usually takes a year or so).   Try to figure out exactly what you consumed the days before you got sick.  Like Karen said, it just might be a virus or even food poisoning.  It could be food intolerances like Ennis stated.  

Lots of possibilities for your reaction.  I know it is frustrating trying to figure out what made you sick and sometimes you just can not pinpoint the culprit.  Instead, consider just moving on and focus spin healing and staying safe.  We have all been there!
