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?

I had a similar effect on one of the few times I have eaten out since I was diagnosed. I didn't notice bread crumbs in my water glass until I had consumed half of it. Turned out they store the glasses right beside the bread warmer at the waitress station. :angry: I had a very miserable week after that.

All it takes is a really small amount of gluten, less than you can see with your naked eye, for the immune system to react. If one has neuro symptoms they can show up really quickly as the mucous membranes in the mouth absorb it into the bloodstream.

I hope you feel better soon.

Yeah, I ordered a salad without croutons at one restaurant and I think they made a regular salad, then picked the croutons out. Anyway, I found myself chomping down on a small piece of a crouton I hadn't seen. I should have spit the entire mouthful out (as gross as that would have been) but I was with my inlaws at a nice restaurant and I was pretty new to all this. I didn't know how badly I would react.

I was sick for several days after that.

From this I learned I have to not only say "no croutons" but to say I am allergic to wheat. (Yeah I know, not precisely correct ... but waiters understand this and seem to perk up with the mention of "allergy.")

I've read that people can react to the amount of gluten contained in 1/1000 of a slice of bread.

I hope you are feeling better now.

Kareng, I am a bit concerned by your statement here.  I no longer have "out of control" DH, but smaller, more scattered, and more readily resolving (for the most part) flareups.  And it may be that I am just having what would be "normal" for a person in my situation, being 'only' 13 months into the gluten-free diet.  I will readily admit, and perhaps should stress, that the situation is very much better than it was before I went gluten-free, including the fact that my former GI symptoms have tot
