Do You Always Have The Same Symptoms When Glutened?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was just curious. I always experience extreme gi symptoms and brain fog when glutened. I went to dinner two days ago and had terrible brain fog after and all day yesterday but no gi symptoms. I am not sure that it was gluten since I had no gi symptoms but I really feel like the brain fog was the same. Can I have still been glutened even without the gi symptoms? Are everyone's symptoms of glutening always the same? Let me know!

Mine are always the same... WICKED GI symptoms... I tell my husband it's wolverines trying to scratch their way out!!

Don't have brain fog... thank goodness!! Just GI repercussions.

I was diagnosed not too long ago... a few weeks... and I have been glutened a couple of times since cutting gluten out. My symptoms have been really random - the first time I went from being cheery and happy to being incredibly irritable and groggy in about 15 minutes, with a distended abdomen... the next day I developed a migraine which lasted for 2 days.

This past week I was glutened again at a restaurant (stupid lack of nutritional information!) and I didn't get groggy or irate... just had mild GI symptoms. At least I THINK it was gluten... but maybe it was the ice cream I had :)

It's still very early in the game for me but I have already noticed different reactions to gluten!

I find it tends to vary....

Sometimes a small amount and the GI symptoms are minor but brain fog isn't... then other times if I drop some immoium early I can get less brain fog and who knows...

I also find that for instance a long gradual glutening (such as eating a CC'd item for a week or drinking vodka) are different..

The slow but long term very small amounts tend to hit more randomly on GI but more on neuro... I start loosing feeling in my right pinky... so even the type of glutening seems to affect the subtle parts of it.

My wife finds that it seems to vary depending on ammount. The sleepwalking toast got her a lot worse than the time I got crumbs in the butter. Brainfog and skin breakouts are her two though, no matter what else she gets, she gets those.

I don't necessarily get bad GI symptoms at all, but brain fog is a guaranteed one if I get glutened. GI symptoms seem to vary a bit depending on amount, time of month, and what else I have eaten at the same time.

My symptoms are somewhat variable.

Always - brain fog, irritability, tiredness, sinus congestion & pain that means major headaches, acid reflux, bloating

Sometimes - the intestinal issues, nausea, joint pain

I had some ice cream last night that definitely had no wheat/gluten ingredients but my sinuses did flare up & I felt really tired - I'm thinking there might have been some cross contamination so I won't eat anymore of it. I didn't have a very good sleep last night.

So...I guess you could say if I have mild exposure (cross contamination), my symptoms are a bit different. If I eat something that has gluten in it in that I didn't realize, my symptoms are more severe AND longer lasting. I *shudder* to think what my symptoms would be if I actually ate bread or something !
