Accidentally Glutened

Recommended Posts

I was accidentally glutened Friday night; to be honest I still can't figure out what it was. I didn't eat breakfast that day, for lunch I got pizza from Risotteria (I can't possibly imagine I got glutened from there) and for dinner we made stir fry at home. DH thinks maybe there was cross contamination in the water chesnuts or bamboo shoots we added; which makes sense considering they are manufactured in factories with soy sauce, ect. I also doubt it was Risotteria because I usually react anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Not usually 14 hours later, so I think it had to be something from the stir fry we made.

Anywhoo, Friday night sucked and I still felt pretty crappy most of Saturday but by Sunday morning I felt much better. Then all of a sudden last night when I got home I started having a horrible pain in my back, almost by my right shoulder blade. It literally started as I was sitting in the car driving home. I didn't lift anything heavy or make any odd movements, but figured I don't know, maybe I somehow pinched a nerve or pulled a muscle. Now I'm wondering if this could be from the gluteneing? But I was glutened Friday night and felt better by Sunday morning. What do you think? It still hurts today.

(Sorry so long winded. Just trying to give as much detail as possible).

At one time I started getting the sort of pains you describe. They shifted around, eventually going into my arms, down my back, side to side, then into my legs. This went on for months though, so I don't know if it relates at all to your experience.

It would eventually turn out to be from nightshades, but I suspect they might not have become a problem had I started the sublingual methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) soon enough. Still I didn't manage much progress until I started taking a magnesium supplement. Then I really saw a profound improvement.

I hope your pains don't last like mine did.

i have pain right under the right shoulder blade when glutened. i'm not sure if it's related to my peripheral neuropathy or not but i also get severe low back pain. once i'm better the pain goes away though. i also take a B12 supp. daily.

One of the symptoms of an accidental glutening for me is back pain. It usually comes 24 to 48 hours or so after the glutening though, after the diahrea has long gone. Kind of a one two punch. I've also come to realize the sciatica I've had most of my life is part of that as well. For me it starts out as sciatica in the lower back and travels down one leg and eventually works it's way out other limbs as well. I would guess that anything involving the spine, which this seems to be for me, has the potential to resonate throughout the whole body.

If it weren't all so painful I'd find this fascinating; putting together the pieces of the gluten puzzle to understand the last twenty or thirty years of my life and medical history. <_<

I had constant lower back pain when I was still eating gluten. Also hips and elbows would constantly hurt, nothing relived any of the pains...but I can't remember how long it took for that part of the fun to kick in...

Pain under the right shoulder blade or between the shoulder blades can be from the gall bladder.

If it happens again, and especially if you get nausea,abdominal pain,gas(gee...this all sounds hauntingly familiar)......it might need testing......like an abdominal ultrasound or nuclear biliary scan.

Dear jkmunchkin,

I am with GFMemphis on this. I had gallbladder trouble, too. That pain is very familiar!

The misery it can cause is unreal! I had mine removed several years ago. It turns out, Celiac causes it to go bad. :(

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
