Thanksgiving Screw Up

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So on Thanksgiving, my wonderful mother decided early on to make EVERYTHING gluten free with one exception: stuffing. She made a pan of rice and sausage stuffing for me, and a pan of rice, sausage and bread stuffing for everyone else.

Okay, so dumb me was speaking to my grandmother when I was making my plate. I was not paying attention. I made whoopsie and put the wrong stuffing on my plate. I think I took three bites before realizing I was eating something bad. I said a few words at the table my grandparents probably shouldn't hear. Then my mom noticed and said a few more colorful expressions. We both got up and ran to the kitchen to fix me a new plate.

I felt so bad because my mom worked SO hard and I screwed up. And I wanted to be so careful because I have a much needed 4 day weekend and I wanted to enjoy it.

So I woke up yesterday (Friday, day after Thanksgiving) with a horrid migraine and fog (my two big symptoms). My fiance and I took a road trip yesterday to go to a store about 45 minutes a way that specializes in gluten free foods. And to go antiquing. I felt horrible all day but I didn't want to ruin our plans. We get back home last night and I don't even take my coat off and go to take a nap.

I get up and still have a migraine. But around 10:00 last night, I start vomiting everywhere. I barely ate yesterday because I felt like crap. I stop vomiting for an hour, but at about 11:00, I started PROJECTILE VOMITING. I was so embarrassed and I was crying because I just felt like an idiot.

That being said, before I was gluten free, I used to vomit OCCASIONALLY from my migraines. Not all the time, but I can remember six or so times when I would vomit after having a particularly bad migraine. Since being gluten free, I have not vomited after accidentally ingesting gluten. So it is not one of my normal repercussions.

My question is does anyone else experience this? Occasional vomiting from gluten?

awww, so sorry you got so sick! I never had migraines, and only once in a blue moon when they started about 10 yrs ago. I don't think they were gluten-related at that time. I think I've had some migraines due to hormones. And a few of those certainly were bad enough to make me want to vomit or actually vomit if I had anything in my stomach. It's been years since having one that badly, even after becoming gluten-intolerant. I hope you get to feeling better real fast!! Your mother was so sweet to try so hard for you! I think mine thinks I'm making some of this stuff up. But she's the hypochondriac in the family, so she would think about making stuff up, lol.

I have vomited with a glutening. Never a cross contamination but if I accidentally ate something that contained wheat. I would defiantly vomit if I ate real stuffing. I also in the past would vomit from migraines so maybe too much gluten sets this off in us. Sorry you had to experience this.

Thank you both for the encouraging responses. The weird thing about it is I don't feel as horrible as I usually do two days after a glutening. My migraine only lasted a day - usually it is three or four solid days in a row. I am not terribly bloated, but it will be a day or two before I find out if I have the big C (I did have D about four hours after I consumed the stuffing - but nothing since - sorry for the TMI). Also, I can't really seem to eat anything- nothing looks good to me, not even the Schar butter and chocolate cookies I bought yesterday. I was able to stomach some strawberries this morning, but I just haven't been hungry (usually I am ALWAYS hungry). Weird... <_<
