How Do You Recover?

Recommended Posts

After I spend all night "commuting" between the couch and the bathroom, I feel miserable today. I can't even look at food, it just makes me sick all over again. How do you guys recover after you got "glutened"? I drank a lot of water all night long to stay hydrated but still, I feel exhausted and miserable.

Is there anything I could eat to calm my upset tummy/intestines?

Thanks, Danielle

When I get glutened, I am sick for about 1-5 days!! Yes, it varies for me at times. I have those days where the thought of food would make me sick. I would just drink water and eat bananas so i had something in my tummy, otherwise I felt worse!!! Rice?

Hope you feel better soon.

I had some cooked quinoa this morning and half a banana and it made me feel worse :( I wish I would be off work today because I don't think I can stand looking all the baked stuff and desserts today.

Sometimes the BRAT Diet can be helpful... Banana, Rice, AppleSauce and Tea. Once the reaction takes place sometimes you just have to let it run it's course. Drink plenty of water, that seem to help me a bit.

I usually take Pepto Bismol, which sometimes can help a bit, sometimes not at all. I have one of those heating pads that you put in the microwave that aleviates the pain while it is on my tummy. And I basically just try and drink a lot of water and eat bland stuff like rice or sometimes a gluten free bagel.

I usually am in to much pain to do it, but I find that walking around is actually much better than sitting down.

And ofcourse a little whining never hurts. LOL!!!

Ditto the Pepto, and sometimes Benedryl. Water, lots of water. And sleep.

I drink a lot of water because I'm always thirsty when glutened, and my lips get very dry.

I find having a little something in my stomach actually helps the nausea. Banana, hot rice cereal--anything bland.

If I absolutely need to be somewhere, I take Immodium--if I'm home, I don't.

Other than that, I pretty much just have to wait it out <_<:D

I'm a bit radical and not lactose intolerant so it's Rum and ice cream for me. I've found moderate alchohol abuse good for the spirits too. I used to "wake and bake," but having been clean for a while, the medically proven, anti-inflammatory, mild euphoric properties of weed seem unnecessary. Needless to say none of this is recommended, but I am Doctor intolerant so home remedies arise.

My only small piece of advice to add would be if you are having trouble keeping liquids down, try freezing them and then sucking on them like a popsicle. Frozen Pedialyte really helped me when I was glutened or otherwise ill. Warm baths also help a lot to ease the pain for me but I guess you probably don't want to get too overheated.

I have great results with peppermint tea. Or lemon balm tea, which is harder to find.

Trader Joe's has a great "Mint Medley" tea with peppermint, spearmint and lemongrass. It soothes me and helps me feel less nauseous right away. I really do believe it lessens the time that I feel sick.

If I do the throwing up deal before getting the D, I have trouble keeping anything at all down for several hours. Then I try Gatorade mixed with GingerAle or seltzer. And gluten free pretzels! My roommate bought me some the last time I got badly "poisoned" and they tasted good and they provide salt, which is good when you're dehydrated!

So it took me 4 days to recover from this accident. I drank a lot of water, ate some rice, apple sauce and bananas and everything seemed to be fine again.... till tonight. One of my co-workers used Worcester Sauce in the "Family Dinner" tonight and when I asked him what's in it (it was some stir fry kinda thing) he told me all tthe ingredients except for the sauce. Well, right when I was finished with my plate he goes like "ohhh, and i also used worcester sauce but that's not a big deal, right?" I checked the ingredients list and it says "Malt Vinegar".... guess I have a "happy night" ahead again.

I think I should start bringing my own food to work.
