This Is What I Think Happened

Recommended Posts

I think i got glutened the other day. Boy oh boy. My stomach hurt so bad. Not like I was going to have diarrhea or a stomach ache, but pain in my upper quadrant. I was doubled over, etc. It also hurt my stomach to walk. This lasted for 3 to 4 days. Sheesh. We went out to eat at Cracker Barrel because we were on the road for a trip and I order what I thought was ok. Grilled Roast Beef. It came with carrots and green beans. It was wonderful. <_< I could not look up on Cracker Barrels web site about allergens. So I don't know what happened there.

Anyway, this is what I think. I thought to myself, why did it hurt so bad and I really noticed something this time? Well, I think it's like if you were to be poisoned slowly over a long period of time, you feel yucky all the time, but don't really know why. You are not in tremendous amount of pain, but some nonetheless. You just kinda wither away slowly. Well, then you realize you are being poisoned and you are poison free for 2 months say. Then all of a sudden you are poisoned again. Well, after being poison free for a while, your body is like "WHOA" and the effects of the poison are really strong at that time. It is not little by little like before. Does this make any sense?

I ordered the fecal test from Enterolab and even if they come back negative, I think I will be gluten free anyway. Ouch.

Absolutely, it makes sense. Your body has had time to recover from the damage gluten has done. Then, when it's reintroduced your body goes into overdrive trying to fight it off. Thus, causing exagerated symptoms. Ugh...
