I was on vacation and tried a different bottle of water and had the same experience. I got very sick. From then on..........I stuck with the bottle that didn't cause me any reactions. I hope your girlfriend is feeling better. Maybe she could find a bottled water that suits her belly and use that at your home.

It's not likely to be gluten. However our damaged guts can be very sensitive to other things that may be in the water. Before going gluten-free I started working and drinking alot of bottled water. I noticed that it bothered me quite a bit so I started bringing filtered water from home in a glass bottle. Problem solved. Now if I drink water from the plastic bottles, which granted isn't so often these days, I don't notice it. It was so strong back then though. Both the smell and taste.

Are you gluten free? It is much more likely that she got CC'd either from coming into contact with something in your home or by food. The water should be safe.

My brother always became ill from water away from home. This was a problem as we traveled all summer for our families business. Mom just started carrying his own water wherever we went.

I read another poster say she couldn't understand why she was feeling so bad and having symptoms again when she hadn't changed her diet. She went on a trip and improved but became ill again after returning home. Seems she had purchased a new refrigerator with drinking water dipenser. She finally found out it contained a filter made from coconut hulls which she is allergic to. On vacation, she had been drinking bottled water. Does your water run through a filter?

I agree with ravenwood - there's no gluten in tap water. She could be reacting to a higher concentration of chlorine (if you guys live on different water systems, for instance), or contamination on the counter or glasses in the kitchen. But no gluten in the water.
