Had to leave work this morning because of being sick to my stomach (frequent trips to the bathroom). I'm a personal trainer at our local Y and I hated to leave, but I had no other option!

The last 3 days have been like this in the morning. The doc says it's a normal adjustment phase I have been gluten free for over 3 weeks.

I just want to know if anyone else had this problem when switching to gluten-free lifestyle & how long does this last?

I am getting frustrated and feeling defeated....

Sounds more to me like you accidentally got glutenized. :blink: Cross contamination? Did you eat out? Hope you feel better soon.

You do have ups and downs but that does sound like a reaction to me. What are you eating in the evening? Do you take medicines or vitamins before bed? What do you drink?

Is it possible you accidentally ate something with gluten? Although I am not very far into being gluten free, maybe since march/april I remember eating gluten by accident several times..in soy sauce, eating french fries from communal fryers, etc.

It sucks but I hope you feel better soon!

I do watch everything I eat very carefully. Last night I had homemade beans and rice with a bit of grilled chicken thigh... I do take a gluten-free multivit at night along with a probiotic. I try not to drink anything besides water at night (alright occasionally I have a glass of wine) but with my stomach problems I'm haven't lately.

My family still eats gluten and I do prepare it for them. I use different pans for my food, I was my hands if I touch gluten...

Could a reaction last for 3 days?

A reaction can last up to weeks for people.

I had gluten by accident on Saturday. Today I still have chills, headache as if I snorted acid, joint pain..and more! OY!!!!

OR you could be going through gluten withdrawal like I did. I felt horrible in the beginning. Frequent bathroom visits--it was TERRIBLE. My gastro symptoms were way worse on the gluten-free diet than they were when I used to eat gluten. And I was always very careful about cross contamination. Finally by around the 3rd month my gastro symptoms were all cleared up. Hang in there. I'm sure it'll get better. I think maybe it took me so long to heal since I suffered for 19 years before having a proper diagnosis.

QueenOfPain,

I had to respond to you. Just based on your user name, I can totally relate to you. I'm glad you're feeling better. Took me a lot time to get diagnosed and to begin getting better as well. We'll just keeping an eye out for hidden gluten. ;)

lol... yeah, I guess my name isn't too fitting anymore, though. Well, I do still suffer from the joint pain, but everything else is sooo much better. Glad to hear you're on the road to recovery, too, koolkat222!
