Crying Frustrated...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was doing pretty good..and than I seem to have hit a really bad spell. First, about two weeks ago, I glutened myself. I eat so many of the almonds from Blue Diamond that I picked up a can of the jordan almonds.. ate quite a bit..a couple hours later my ear was throbbing, I got a bad migraine. I went online and saw that they had gluten.. I was able to treat the migraine but the next week was filled with studdering, anxiety, joint pain, dizziness.stomach pains .felt like the old me. I learned my lesson.. I thought. This past weekend my husband and I went to Aldi's... I read every thing..I am a snacker at night.. the only thing different this week was the cheese puffs.. I have had a small bowl each night. Its the only thing I have done different. This whole week I have been dealing with severe dizziness , headaches, more studdering and anxiety..and diarrhea.. my stomach hurts and I feel so sick.. I feel really bad this morning.

My question is this. Would I still be feeling it from the almonds or would it be the snacks from Aldi's? When you get glutened that bad, does it stay with you? Am I back at square one?

I just am so frustrated and so tired. Can anyone give me any insight?

I am so sorry this is happening to you. It could still be the Jordan almonds but I suspect that the snacks are either not gluten free or that they are heavily cross contaminated. Have you called the maker of the snacks to verify that they are gluten free? Even if they are gluten free by ingredients the plant they are made in may use powdered gluten ingredients in other items. If that is the case nothing from that plant would likely be safe to be consumed. I would stop eating those immediately. If you wanted you could then wait a couple weeks till you are feeling better and try them again and see if you react. Another posibility is that you have developed reactions to dairy foods. Although for myself my reactions to my other intolerances are decided different from my reactions to gluten that isn't the case for everyone. That can make it hard to figure out what is going on. Can you try to stick to whole, unprocessed foods for a while? That would help you to heal the fastest.

Like raven said, a whole food unprocessed diet is the way to go in terms of healing. It's helping me recover, I know that much, and is less stressful when you don't have to constantly look for hidden gluten (in a Paleo diet there are little amount of ingredients in what you buy)

Just keep pulling through and try not to think constantly about progress (even though I know it's in your face). That will stress you out.

I would say raven gave you the best advise.

but maybe my experience will help you to feel better. i glutened myself just a couple months back... i was down for a full week. first the gi symptoms that are bad enough... but after the first two days of gi symptoms and a bit of brain fog, i was just so fatigued and my insides just ached. you arent necessarily back at square one. but like the previous poster suggested, those puffs may be heavily cross contaminated. i would cut those out completely, all that CC adds up after a while and you're never going to feel your best with that in your system!

I actually had a glutening with effects that lasted 5 weeks! But that was when I breathed in wheat flour dust courtesy of my brother who made 7 pies for Thanksgiving.

I agree-it could be either item or both.

Paleo or specific carbohydrate diet (scd) are two of the best diets for healing and avoiding CC! I so agree.

If you are reacting to milk products, try 24 hour home made yogurt and the list of scd cheeses that have all the lactose removed through thorough fermentation. Its helped me to heal so much more so that now I am able eat several things I formerly thought I was allergic to...

Just some support, you are never back to square one now that you have a solution to what is going on with you!

When I get glutened it takes about a week for me to get back to being ok. I read every label each time I buy something in case they changed how they made it. I find the less processed stuff I eat the better I am.
