    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I ate out Friday night at the restuarant that I normally eat at. I ordered the ribs. I had my own bbq sause, I had my own salad dressing and i had my own butter. They let me keep these things right there so I don't have to bring them every time. I also drank ice tea, which I normally don't drink.

Anyway, about twelve hours later I started getting an upset stomach. Over a period of the next 12-24 hours I had the dry heaves, I had vomit burps, I had like 5 bowel movements (but no diarrhea - some loose stools). I pretty much sleep the whole day Sunday. That evening I ate some chicken and rice and I felt really good. Now this morning I ate some cream of rice cereal, and I am all burpy again. Truthfully I think getting hit by a truck would have felt better than what I went through.

Does this sound like a glutening? I'm gonna go to the restaurant this week and read their tea ingredients and find out exactly what they do with the ribs, do they soak them in broth or shake them with four and spices? I've eaten them before and have never had the reaction I had to these.

For the reaction I had it must have been either gluten or an allergy, I was so sick.

It does sound like a glutening.

Also find out if they cook the ribs on the grill after something that may have had gluten -- teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, etc.

Maybe they contaminated your bbq sauce, or had flour on their hands when preparing your food. Did they toss your salad in a bowl that had previously had croutons in it?

There may be a gluten ingredient in something you are already eating there that you weren't sensitive to before. As you are gluten-free for a longer period of time, often you become more sensitive. I was very hypersensitive for quite a few months after going gluten-free.

The ribs never touch the grill, they are cooked in crock pots, as far as I know, and no sauce hits them until they are ordered. I always order them with no sauce. My bbq is kept in the bottle, I am the only one that ever pours it out. They don't serve croutons on the salads, so I know I don't have to worry about that. I just wonder what they do to the ribs, before they hit the crock pot or if they are soaked in something to keep them moist. I hope to go in this week and ask some questions. Thanks for your response.

Daisy, talking to them would be a good idea. Be sure to post what they say so that when others look up this thread, the answer is there.

You could have just come down with a bug ... sometimes we attribute everything to gluten. :P I know that a couple of my kids got the symptoms you described last winter! And they're not gluten-free!
