Stomach Flu Now...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys - Last week I had my first gluten reaction to Rice Dream that I had been drinking (has barley in it). So, I gradually felt better all week and then BAM! my two daughters started vomiting in the middle of the night on Saturday and I woke up sick to my stomach too with wonderful D and feeling achy and sick.

Anyone know if stomach flu causes problems with a person who has celiac - or if I'll get better in a few days like I used do. We seem to be passing back and forth some kind of stomach virus this winter - all three of my kids were throwing up just three weeks ago.

Sucks. Sucks. Sucks. I've done so much laundry, you wouldn't even believe it...AmandaD

Hi Amanda--Sounds like you have your hands full there with everyone sick! My experience is that if I get a cold or virus (really haven't had that many since going gluten-free), I get over it the same as always. Actually, better than before because when I was always sick, it would be kind of hard to tell if I was all the way over something. Hope you and your family feel better soon :)

Thanks Patti - I live here in Wisconsin...my 5 year old just started Kind and my 3 year old just started pre-school (just this week, actually) - I swear I love them to bits but they're little germ mongers!

I wish I could open up all the windows and air this place out - it's like a petri dish...

My house just passed the stomache thing around two weeks ago......even my dog got it (I felt so bad for her). But I do think that it is worse now, that we have celiac and all I think we do get it alot worse. Hope you feel better soon.

Man oh man do I feel your pain...I just got over the stomach flu. I had it for about a week. I'm pretty new to celiac, so I thought maybe I was having a reaction. I work in a school and several of the kids have had the same symptoms. I rested a lot, drank flat ginger ale, and ate foods in the BRAT diet. I hope you are feeling better soon.
