Anyone have the problem of starting to improve after a glutening and then crashing back down again? I had some cross-contamination issues last week and from Wednesday through Sunday or Monday I wasn't feeling well. Really focused on simple foods, was starting to feel better (no acute pain, discomfort). But yesterday my pain started up again and worse than it was a week ago. I don't know if it's a normal recovery or if I ate something in one of those no-motivation, tired, busy, hungry moments.

I have totally had that problem. It usually happens when I try to introduce foods that my body isn't ready for, and my body says NO WAY Jose... :angry:

same problem here for the ups-n-downs! I keep hoping this is going to get more stable soon...on the better side! (I am "only" 6 weeks gluten-free)

seems that when I feel down again, it can last anywhere from 4 days to 2 weeks :(

Depends a bit for me - if I'm in pretty good shape beforehand and the stars are completely aligned in my favor? I've managed to shake it off in about 3 days a few times.

If not?

Up to two weeks before I can say with certainty I'm all the way back on the beam. Well... that I can see the beam from where I'm standing!

Ugh. I've been glutened 3 times this week due to cross contamination in my kitchen. So it's been non-stop brain fuzz and being bed ridden.

But, for about a year I've been on-and-off gluten free dieting (been at it for about 6 weeks now... even though I've been glutened 3 times this week), and the longest was about 3 weeks for me.

Usually about a week for the worst of it to go (multi-day migraine and multi-day GI problems).

Usually about a week for me...I start feeling better after a few days but it takes a few more before I feel completely back to normal and can eat properly again.

are you all completely down for the count for this long or are you still making it to work during this time?

I have GI issues and am achy all over...plus I break out in a rash. This part last about 2 days. Then I get super fatigued for the next 5 or 6 days.

I work the whole time, but I have a sit down, low stress job and my own little office so I can look and feel terrible in solitude! lol!

Depends on how much I ate. I'm usually out for 3 days. Luckily, for some weird reason, I always tend to get sick toward the weekend. Still, I don't have any sick/vacation time saved up because I'm always taking off for celiac or other intolerance problems. Boo hoo. I wish I could take a vacation.

Usually I can go into work and function, but I am miserable, tired, and dragging myself and my raw intestines around. I couldn't afford to take all the time off, but sometimes I do give up and stay home for a day or two when it's at the worst part.

for me, about a week. Doesn't stop me from working (either previously, when I was a software engineer, or now, when I just teach yoga), but not only are my symptoms not as severe as many other people's, but I've worked through migraines and many other painful things, so I tend to just deal (not saying exactly how well ;) ) with the pain/discomfort.

A few days to a week on average. I have RA so I'm always pushing through while fatigued and achy. That's a norm for me. When glutened I get a food poisoning like reaction so that first day or two I feel physically beat up but mentally ok. I do continue to work but I can work from home whenever I want to so those 'dragged behind a bus days' can be spent at home in my pj's. Then there are hours/days that follow where the physical piece is over but the brain fog is so bad I don't really accomplish anything and when I bounce back those days it's like they never happened. My memory is shot during those brain fog days (these are more intense than my general fog brain which I seem to have 24/7). Thank goodness I'm not a surgeon, bus driver or accountant!! :P

I have to go to work regardless. I'm a grad student and we really only take sick days when we either have a high fever or are vomiting. I took an accidental/CC hit on Wednesday at lunch. I've been making it through the rest of the week doped up on Tylenol (ibuprofen makes the heartburn worse). It blunts the migraine to a dull ache. I can work through a dull ache. Last night I waited too long to take Tylenol and the pain was bad enough that I had the dry heaves, but I was at home by then. I think the headache is on its way out, but now my stomach and intestines are rumbling. I'm prone to C rather than D, which is painful but not as potentially disastrous when I leave the house.

Lol well I am an accountant so I generally am screwed with the brain fog. I sent an email to the wrong person yesterday with some sensitive info...grr.

Hmm it seems gluten hits everyone for at least a few days so it's maybe I'm getting cross contamination. I am fairly careful but the other person in my house eats a normal diet and leaves crumbs about. I'll perhaps be more diligent, keeping my own plate cutlery etc.

Anyone get severe sensitity to lack of carbs? Or is this an effect of being glutening. I seem to be hungry and tired all the time, and only carbs seem to kind of bring me out of zombie mode - the more I eat the more able to function I am.

I'm through it in a couple hours.

Just wanted to point out that not everyone takes days.

You know, I used to have the brain fog constantly, but now I don't notice it as much when I take an accidental hit. I think that for me it was a cumulative effect. A small hit is enough to pull up the more physical symptoms but doesn't take down the whole brain with it. I wonder about the carb hunger. I remember being hungry ALL the time pre-gluten-free, and I would go and pour myself another bowl of mini-wheats cereal. (sigh) I don't really crave carbs anymore. In fact, if I eat too much sugar or starch, my blood sugar goes wonky. I used to crave them a lot, though.
