Bread Crumb In Salad

Guest maybe I have celiac

Yesterday, I was feeling fine and focused and went out to eat with my co-workers. I had a salad and noticed I was chewing on a bread crumb. I ate it anyway and the remainder of the afternoon, I was panicky and depressed. Can this small amount of gluten screw me up this badly??? Anyone with personal experiences similar to this?

My wife brought home a chicken ceasers salad from Mcdonalds one day. I tried a small bite of the lettuce just to taste the dressing. I carefully selected an area away from the croutons. As soon as I put it in my mouth, all I could taste was croutons! Naturally I spit it out. I was shocked at the intensity of the crouton taste. In my mind I could see a crouton previously sitting there half dissolved right were I took a bite.

Was a very stupid thing to do anyway. Plus I didn't know about the ingredients in the dressing. Fortunately, I didn't have any ill effects.
