Interesting...

Recommended Posts

I'm feeling a bit achy and tired and earlier I has some stomach cramps and nasty smelling gas and ditto bm's (sorry!). Glutening you might suspect but I'm in a good mood. I wouldn't feel like doing my taxes right now (or ever :P) but I don't have any brain fog either. I asked my husband if he could tell the difference... he could! :ph34r:

Another reason I'm positive it's a stomach virus is that I just met someone yesterday who emailed me later that they had a stomach bug. Some of the time I work with kids so it's not really surprising...

I just thought it was interesting, I've sometimes wondered when I was glutened and couldn't pin point it to anything if it wasn't just a virus after all but I feel totally different than when I've been glutenend. Even the smell was different! :P:lol:

I don't really mind at all, it's funny really, I always tell people that I wouldn't mind the GI symptoms - it's the fact that gluten messes with my head that I find scary and annoying. And it turns out to be true! It's sooo much easier to deal with cramps and feeling sick when my mind is working as it should. When I get glutened it's like I don't want to be depressed, and I try to talk myself out of it, but I CAN'T.

Lucky it's the weekend, I've been just flopping down in front of the telly with a hot water bottle on my belly and lots of tea.

Hi

I've had the same thing, it seems like i've been glutened but no brain fog, is it possible to be glutened and not have brain fog?

Or could it be something completly differant like not cooking the chicken properly the night before or a bug? I suppose the syptoms would be fairly similar. I always put everything down to Celiac which can be so wrong sometimes. I suppose we get used to blaming everything on Gluten :P

I certainly believe it is possible. I seem to have the classic "cast iron stomach" although the rest of my digestive system is a disaster area. I get constipation, diahrrea, gas (lots of that), floating stools...the works. Just no stomach/abdominal pain.

I have problems figuring what has got me sometimes. Monday I had bad D, and I was going over and over in my mind.. where did the slip up happen. My boyfrind brought to my attention that for lunch I ate a WHOLE QUART of watermelon and that would give anyone the runs, and even more me being that my inttestines are so beat up.

gah... celiac is not the cause of all my problems... but 75% of them.

Hi Paulina--

I hope you feel better soon! :)

I had the same situation in reverse recently. It was the awful brain fog that tipped me off that it was gluten--and I was able to track down the cause (CC from a product I thought was made in a separate facility--stupid me!). Other than that, it would have been much harder to tell.

Thanks everybody, I feel much better today, just a little weak. Another sign that it definitively was a bug, in my experience with stomach viruses I usually get better pretty quickly when I get the virus out of my system (one way or the other :P). Gluten on the other hands tends to linger for weeks.... <_<

It still throws me that my husband could tell the difference... :ph34r::blink:
