How Long Are You Binned After A Glutening?

Recommended Posts

I've been having those carb cravings this week. Last week I was hit by cross-contamination probably everyday thanks to the cafeteria <_< and was in pain. This week it was constipation (I don't get D often either) and constant hunger pangs. I've been eating a lot of cereal, trail mix bars and wafer cookies. Today I finally feel like my system is moving just a little bit.

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.

How long you been gluten-free i-geek?

Just an update: Those symptoms that I thought were a second wave after that week of recurring CC were actually a seperate reaction... to Dermatone sunblock. I thought the break out on my face, neck and arms was an allergic reaction that I've experienced before to various sunscreens, but I finally took a closer look at the label last night and guess what I found? Tocopheryl acetate. The rash must have been DH. That tube of my favorite sunblock ever is now in the trash.

Wow guys. I really feel for you all. Maybe because I am a newby (9 weeks gluten free today!) but I don't seem to be taking a reaction at all (see my other thread) It kind of has me worried though. I'm afraid I am not doing the diet properly at all and the first I will know of it will be when I get my antibodies checked in June :(

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

I'm useless for a good four to twenty-four hours. Because of that, I've gotten into the habit of only taking risks like eating out at a new place or eating something a friend prepared on Friday nights. That way I won't miss work. I got hit pretty bad this past Friday night, actually, and Saturday morning was no fun. It's still messing with me now, but I'm functional.

I get a day of GI symptoms and starting about 24 hours later a couple days of brain fog, anxiety, and depression. Not pleasant at all.

Just wanted to chime in. During my 2 plus years of healing I had joint pain and muscle pain with some of the nightshade mainly peppers and tomato. I stopped them. I can now eat them again. My theory is when my gut gets cc my holey gut dumps some of my food in my blood stream and my already ticked off immune system let's me know what is allowed. Apparently for a time nightshades  of potato, tomatos, and peppers were an issue. I was able to gradually introduce potatoes first and then tomatos, then
