Not a lot will help but I take sublingual B12 and Pepto Bismal for the stomach pain. I hope you feel better soon.

After the first 24 hours or so I usually take some Imodium so I can have a break and get some uninterrupted sleep. Also, as much as I don't want to eat, I usually feel better if I have something on stomach. Small amounts of rice and applesauce work well for me.

Pedialyte is great for staying hydrated. I find making popsicles out of the Pedialyte makes it easier to get down and stay down.

I hope your symptoms pass quickly.

Depends on your symptoms.

I take a sinus/allergy non drowsy med if I need to work because I get wicked sinus headaches from gluten and before I know it my shoulders are all tight & it's miserable. Rarely, if it is really bad, I take advil because tylenol never touches these headaches. However, advil does a number on my stomach so it has to be really bad !

I agree with the Pepto Bismal - I use the tablet form. Again, if I need to work that's what I take. Ha - if I'm working (I work at a pool and any glutening, esp. sinus issues, worsens in the pool atmosphere) I will be on tylenol, sinus med and pepto. Ugh - I try really hard not to gluten myself !

Fresh sliced or grated ginger in hot water with honey is a great anti-nauseant too. Make yourself sit, relax, and enjoy it (I cheat with jarred 'fresh' ginger).

I eat light after glutening - lots of fluids and once my tummy has settled a bit (um, bathroom trip wise), I try to get a little exercise in, seems to help bring me back around mood & energy wise.

Red Bull does wonders for that "hit by a bus" feeling. It also seems to help with brain fog and even minor body aches. I think its because it has such a high does of caffeine along with vitamins. Anyway, that seems to be the only thing that really helps me make it through the day after being glutened.
