Bleeding?

Recommended Posts

I have called my GI, but I am wondering if anyone else gets rectal bleeding when glutened...

Friday I went out and had a slice of flourless chocolate cake and a few drinks (the first time in almost 4 months I have had a drink - and I called and checked 2x to ensure the cake was gluten free).

I nearly passed out after acupuncture Saturday afternoon.

A few hours later, regurgitated water into my mouth a couple of times.

Later, broke out in itchy red bumps on my abdomen and wrists.

Got really stuffy (thought I was getting a cold).

I finished my round of antibiotics for bacterial overgrowth Saturday night.

I spent most of yesterday in bed, exhausted, stuffy, dizzy, sweating excessively (tylenol did nothing, so I don't think it was a fever).

Woke up this morning with abdomen pain/pressure and some bright red blood.

I have not ingested any gluten since being diagnosed June 21. Does this sound like I got hit with some gluten?

Hi

Three weeks ago I bought a cake I saw on the box Dairy free, but I did not realized that it was not gluten free, I thought it was. The same day in the afternoon my mouth broke into canker sores, pains in the abdomen, and in the evening I was bleeding from the rectum. It was so confusing because I thought I did not ingest any gluten, but I had all the symptoms. Later in the week we were going to make the seconf cake and thats when my wife told me did you looked at the ingridients. It had wheat and barley as the top ingridients. It was three weeks ago, and I am still bleeding from my rectum. IT takes a while for your system to recover. The first week was very bright red.

Take care this is one step at a time.

Best regards to you.

Thanks Pedro.

Doc just called and said "things change day to day" and go to the ER if the pain/bleeding get worse.

That my colon looked fine and she could find no reason for the bleeding and that some days are more "painful and bloated" than others. Then said "she had to go" when I asked more questions. BLARGH!

Your doc sounds like a real winner. I might just start looking for another one, she should have let you finish your query.

That said, what you are experiencing is not unusual and it does sound like gluten. They could have floured the pan, flour wouldn't be an ingredient technically then or you should look at what you drank. While many tolerate gluten grains that are distilled many of us do not. Also many bar mixers are not gluten-free but not knowing what the drinks were make it hard to say if that is what got you.

If the bleeding becomes apparent when you are not moving your bowels, in other words if it is seeping out, or if you become cold and sweaty, or your lips turn a purplish blue do not hesitate to get yourself to the ER.

Ravenwoodglass - thanks!

I do have some bleeding not associated with a BM, but it happened before, months ago. There is no pain, I do not have a temperature and the doctor's assistant is suppose to be calling me back with the results of my colonoscopy.

She has been really helpful and attentive up until now, so I am hoping she will get her head out of her ass and help me figure out what's wrong with mine!

I asked, and they said the pans were used exclusively for the flourless cake... but I didn't even think about the drink mixes. Thanks.

I spent most of today trying to get the results of my colon biopsies... which the doctor said she mailed to me, but was "in the middle of something and couldn't look them up." And of course her assistant had my chart but wasn't authorized to read the results to me over the phone.

I cannot wait for this chapter be done!

6.5 hours in the ER later...

They have no idea why I am so much pain, or bleeding... but I have "perfect urine."

They sent me on my way with a 3rd muscle relaxant.

I think the bacteria are back, the resident things it was some gluten.
