I Accidently Ate Wheat! Need Advise!

Recommended Posts

I have been on the wheat-free diet for about 3 weeks now and I finally started to feel better. My eye irritation finally went away and my allergies (to dust and my dogs) started to get better too.

Then on Halloween night I accidently ate a twix bar (not thinking of the wafer inside the bar) and I swallowed it and thought, "crap...this has wheat in it!" I had that one little bite and threw it away. the next morning I woke up and my eyes were swollen and my stomach as in knots alllll day! I have never felt pain like that in my stomach before. It felt like someone tied my intestines in a knot! After a day that went away but my eyes are still messed up and my allergies are sensitve to the house and dogs again. oh yeah, and my ecezma is back too.

Here is my question, how long will it take my body to get back to normal again? Do I have to wait 3 weeks again??? I only had a little bit and I can't believe how my body reacted to it!

Thanks

Tina

You're body is going to have to work it out, each person is different.

For me it helps to take probiotics if I get CC'd...it might help if you eat gluten on accident. It cuts the time in half for me!

what is that? (probiotics if I get CC'd)

Sorry you don't feel well. Hope you're better soon.

CC means cross-contamination, which means getting gluten through accident- like when someone dips a wheat cracker into your dip and you get sick. CC'd is slang for accidental glutening.

Probiotics are natural bacteria, like you find in yogurt. Drug Stores and natural food stores like GNC sell probiotics in capsule form. I find them helpful. You can do a search here on this site or on google to learn more.

When I have gluten accidentally, I drink a lot of peppermint or lemon balm tea. Peppermint is easier to find. Celestial Seasonings is in most stores and it's gluten free, but check labels.

Good luck!

For me it seems to get worse and longer with each glutening but mine so far only last 3 to 4 days. I don't get the gut reaction but do get intense pain in my muscles and joints with spasms. :angry: Nothing helps me at all it is just a waiting game.

Hope you feel better soon.

27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

You usually have to just ride it out. Everyone seems to have their own form of comfort food when they get glutened - mine is milk, cheese, and scrambled eggs. Are you gluten-free or just wheat-free? It just jumped out at me as unusual since most around here are gluten-free. I'd hate for a fellow celiac to be eating barely and rye without realizing it!


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.
