Have I Been Glutened?

Recommended Posts

I had my evening meal about an hour ago and within a short space of time (about 20 mins) felt so exhausted that I felt drugged and I also got palppitations. Starting to feel a bit more alive now. I've not had any GI reactions (yet). Everything I ate I've had before. I'm wondering whether it's a cc issue or casein maybe (although I'm pretty sure I've not reacted like that to casein previously). The reason I think it might be gluten, despite me being 100% careful making my meal, is that I used to get palpitations all the time in the last few months before going gluten-free.

Any thoughts?

What did you have for dinner? I often feel dazed and drugged after being glutened....I would think that it may be the culprit, but it's hard to say without knowing what may have caused it...

I had gluten-free toast, ham (GFDF) & strawberries. I'm suspecting the ham as being cc given that it was processed.

Out of all of that I would suspect the ham first too.....is there any chance you could have an allergy to the strawberries?

I heard a show on tv stating that strawberries are in the top 10 of allergens people can have! I had no idea that they were like that. So maybe it was the berries.

I have heard that too! I haven't heard it about strawberries in particular, but that a lot of people have an allergy to berries in general!

I don't know if I'm technicaly allergic to strawberries, but I avoid them because they cause GI as well as skin symptoms for me. Nothing major, but I don't eat them thinking if I do, it will get worse.

Interesting. I've never reacted to strawberries before, as far as I can recall. Both my sister in law and my brother in law are allergic to them, so it doesn't surprise me to hear that they are in the top 10 allergens.
