What Happens..?

Hi all,

I have been gluten-free for about 2 years now and am extremely careful with my food. I often have to travel for my job and so I bring a lot of my food with me (one suitcase is for my clothes, etc, the other for food). Anyway, I am currently staying at a 5* hotel in Manila (Philippines) and I'm pretty sure I was poisoned by gluten. I have never had a very serious reaction before but I have been feeling nauseous for about 3 days now.

I was wondering if you could tell me what happens when you are poisoned by gluten... I'm not sure if this is normal or if it is perhaps a reaction to being here in Manila (pollution or water?).... I've been here for about 3 months though and have not changed my habits at all which is why I think it may have been cross contamination...

Thanks for your help.

I can feel nauseous from gluten and I also can get fatigue, brain fog, GI symtoms, chicken pox like bumps on my skin, and stomach pain.

Have you eaten anything unusual? What do you think was contaminated? And you are right, you could be sick from the water, if you were drinking it.

Actually I have only been drinking bottled water... I am pretty sure it's gluten poisoning. I slept for 10 hrs today and I'm still exhausted.

Thank you

I'm guessing that you may be having a gluten reaction. When I accidently eat gluten, I will also sleep for hours and still be tired.

PS--I've been to Manila....loved the Philippines ! If you have been staying and eating in the hotel only, there is less chance for contamination from bacteria etc. However, I did get sick when I went to there from having to eat local food in one of the villages. I never drank or brushed with the regular water. But I stayed in a village...so it was risky. Has the hotel worked with you on the menu? Stick with plain meats cooked on clean surface, veggies and fruit. Hope you are feeling better!
