So I have been gluten free for almost three years now and for almost one year I had had absolutely no stomach problems...until this week. All of a sudden I feel like I have eaten alot of gluten, even though I am sure that I haven't. I haven't gone out to eat recently and I haven't eaten any different foods or taken any different medications. For the past five or six days I have been getting really terrible, disabling cramps and have zero appetite. I decided to try cutting out dairy. I havent eaten anything at all with lactose in it for the past two days but there has been noooo improvement at all.

I am so so frustrated right now...I had come so far and felt so much better and now all of the sudden everything is bad all over again. This is interferring with my life so much, I have already missed three days of school and work and tomorrow will probably be the fourth. Has anyone expereienced something like this before? Or does anyone know a way to go about fixing this problem? I need help and ideas pleasee!

This might be worth a trip to the doctor. It could be gluten exposure but it could also be completely unrelated and could indicate a more serious problem.

Have you checked to see if there is a stomach bug going around? Have you eaten anything that might have been contaminated with a stomach-bug inducing bacteria (uncooked meat, unwashed salad, etc.)?

the fact that it has come out of the blue suggests that you have picked up something from somewhere.

I was guessing parasite or bacteria too. DH just got over a nasty after eating some lettuce at Chipotle. He has an iron stomach and never gets this sort of thing, but the pain had him nearly in tears.

A doctor visit is a good idea.
