What Happens When You Eat Gluten?

Recommended Posts

I often see on here after eating a meal at a restaurant someone got sick consuming something not gluten-free. I'll see someone say they had nausea. I tend to eat and about 10-15 mins later have to find a bathroom with extreme cramping and the urgency to go. Half the time, I wonder how I make it to a bathroom. People joke I should wear diapers. When I spoke to a doctor years ago she said "Oh that's IBS for sure" and I often thought "Wow, IBS is running to the bathroom constantly?".

Does anyone else get diarrhea after eating like I do?

If I eat gluten, a lot, within a short time (for me 30-45 minutes because I have a slow-emptying stomache) I get cramps, followed by nausea. Within an hour, I'm at the bathroom. Urgent. If it's just a little (an accidental taste of gluten pasta I'm cooking for the kids) I get the same reaction, but it's usually put off until the next day.

Either way, a lot or a little, during the night I have severe pain in the neck and back, which continues through the day but to a lesser degree, headache, and light sensitivity. Over next 2-3 days can't think or talk straight. The severity of these is dependent on the amount of gluten eaten. I haven't found an amount I can tolerate yet.

I also get really bad skin rashes that flare up horrible within 3-10 hours of exposure.

I avoid gluten, casein, preservatives.

I have KNOWN people "with" IBS, fibromyalgia, ADD, depression who imrpoved with gluten free diets, forcing the question of accuracy on diagnoses.

I get severely nauseous about 10 minutes after eating something with gluten. When I wasn't gluten free I would get stomach aches and major D. Now, not so much. My nausea lasts for about 1-2 weeks...and it's bad! I usually lose weight when I get glutened and also get moody/depressed/anxious.

I can break out in DH within minutes at times, followed by bloating and stomach pain depending on how bad I've been glutened.

We all seem to react differently which tells me how little they still know about it!

Good luck

It all depends on how much gluten I've had. If its a little cross contamination I get bad gas and stomach cramping about two hours later. If I accidently ingest quite a bit of gluten (when I accidently took a generic brand medication that had gluten) I am vomiting within 3 hours. Not pretty.

Before being diagnosed and going gluten-free, I would have to run to the bathroom after eating. It got to the point where I was almost agoraphobic, it was horrible. In fact I didn't fly on a plane for about 8 years due to the fear I had of not making it to a bathroom.

Now, if I get glutened it's more delayed and not quite as severe.
