I've Been Glutened

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some sympathy.

Im at work and the past three days have been horrible. Im running to the bathroom every half an hour. I have no idea what it is, ive introduced two new things into my diet this week. A new cheese and a new cereal. I stopped eating the cheese, but im still getting sick. The cereal is gluten-free, is says so on the box.

i suppose im just looking for some sympathy, its not something I can talk to my co-workers about, im still new.

Sometimes I think though, that if other people experienced the pain and discomfort we did, they wouldnt even leave bed, let alone go to work and just deal...


gluten free since 05/04

What cereal is it?


Diary free 11/06-6/08

Now using a small amount of low-lactose dairy such as aged cheeses and yogurt. Yum!

Gluten-free since 4/07

Sorry to hear that you are feeling so badly. :(

Is it possible to take a sick day when you feel like this?

How long have you been gluten free?

I found that after going gluten free I also had to go dairy free. :( I once loved cheese. :lol:

I have problems with processed products and have found that a gluten free label does not make it safe for me to eat.

May 2006 - December 2008 Gluten and Dairy Free

December 2008, while seeing improvement on the gluten free diet, I did not recover and so in December of 2008 began the SCD and now have hope for recovery.

thanks for the sympathy.

I suppose I could take a sick day, but Im an intern for the summer, and I'm only here for 8 weeks, so I kind of feel bad just leaving

I've been gluten free for a little over 3 years.

this is really atypical for me.

I don't eat much dairy-i was REALLY lactose intolerant as a child, but I mostly grew out of it. I only eat yogurt and the occasional cheese on a sandwhich, which doesnt bother me.

Maybe it was the new cheese? Edam is the kind. maybe the wax on the rind?

I eat Nature's Path Honey'd cornflakes on a regular basis and have never had a problem with them. Now, if I eat them with regular milk, it is almost like a gluten reaction. Bad diarrea, smelly gas, bloating the whole nine yards, so I eat them with Pacific Foods vanilla flavored almond milk.

Just last week I attempted to add dairy back, in a small amount (the amount used to batter a fried catfish) and it was leathal! (Good thing DH was out of town) Cheese, just depends, small amounts I don't have a serious reaction, but large amounts and I am in serious pain.

Maybe it is the milk with the cereal?

Kat.

Sorry your feeling so awful! Hang in there! I'd explain to the boss and take a day down time at least. The stress from working while feeling like that isn't helping I'm sure.

Don't forget to check even things you've eaten for a long while. Sometimes recipes and ingredients change without warning. That includes any regular medicines you take.
