Well Ive been gluten-free for almost 2 months, still pretty new...i took a chance and had McD's fries last weekend, ever since the day after I ate them, i feel like ive been hit by a truck. I dont really know what it feels like to get glutened since this might be the first time, but I think it is from whats been going on.

Im just plain tired, want to crawl up and get under my blanket...(last week i was running around like i was in the marathon)

then i started getting pains in and around my belly area and over to that infamous right lower side, not intense, but annoying. Kinda nausea, and running to the bathroom at least 4 times a day, especially after i eat. Little brain foggy, def moody...(well PMS doesnt help either, thats why its hard for me to tell what it is)

First i thought it was a stomach bug, but then i thought about the french fries i ate, and i was like DUH!?!

SO any help getting over this would be sooo appreciated....how long do people typically have these episodes? :rolleyes:

It's hard to say. McDonald's fries are generally considered to be okay. Unless your McDonald's is not that "careful", kwim? Maybe talk to the manager.......

Drink lots of water (and maybe try the pineapple juice everyone is talking about now, apparently, that helps in the "de-glutenizing".....)

Hugs.

it could have been the fries, or something else, or both! I have been sick from fries and it is not a good time.

No matter what the source, after I am glutened, I get sick after eating safe foods sometimes bc my body 'hates' me at that point. I drink lots of water and like Karen, potatoes are one of my comfort foods!

I would also re-check your labels-just to make sure nothing has changed.

FEEL BETTER!

The first time I got glutened it made me realize how good I had been feeling!

I thought I had been glutened last week. Could not figure out for the life of me how it happened. Then my dh and dd got sick. Turns out I probably had the flu :lol:

Even though McD's fries are supposed to be safe you always run the risk of cc when eathing out. It might be a good idea (if you can) to avoid eating out for awhile. After I first got dx I avoided any and all resturants. My theory was I needed to figure out how to eat at home first.

I hope you feel better. I drink peppermint tea, sprite and take Immodium.
