Just curious to see what you all have for a reaction time on average if you accidentaly eat gluten. I usually feel it gradually build up from within a couple hours with the worst coming the day or two after. What about you all?

My gastro symptoms hit within 1-2 hours and my cluster headaches start within 1-8 hours.

This was a hard question to answer. I get my gluten ataxia and my tummy starts to growl within a couple hours, migraines come the next day along with joint pain and an overwhelming depression but the upset tummy doesn't arrive until 2 or 3 days later. My whole reaction takes about 3 weeks to resolve. My 'pattern' makes it pretty clear to me when I get glutened as there is never any doubt it was gluten and not some bug I picked up. I guess in that respect I am lucky to have multiple system impact.

My answer wasn't exactly a black-or-white one... there is definitely a grey area for me. Sometimes it can take a few days. Other times, it is the following day. A reaction for me is never really immediate, which makes it hard for me to pinpoint exactly when. Plus, one of my major symptoms is C, so it can take a few days to realize I have been glutened.

If I get a migraine, though, I know I have been glutened in the last few days.

My tummy starts to hurt within a few minutes. I use this as a way to 'test' before eating something someone else has prepared. An hour or so later I get headache/fatigue.

I don't have celiac disease, but have tested gluten/casein sensitive. 90% of my worse symptoms are neurological, especially the sensation of dizziness within 10 minutes after eating, but I can get brain fog anytime, even if I haven't ingested anything reactive (just about 7 weeks into this, so still in the healing process, I am sure).

When I first went gluten-free/CF, the reaction would last for about 18 hours, but that is drastically less these days, down to just a couple of hours.

Got glutened yesterday ... BOOOOO! My symptoms start within 1 hour. I bloat like a balloon, the gas starts, then nausea, then the blood sugar drops, then the headaches. My blood sugar will dip all night long into the next day. Then I get pissy. My foul mood spilled over today because I snapped at my friend who said her salsa was gluten free...so I said "SALSA IS SUPPOSED TO BE GLUTEN FREE, WHAT KIND OF CRAPPY SALSA NEEDS GLUTEN!" I'll have to apologize tomorrow :o

vbecton,

Oddly enough, I was just settling down to eating salsa at a Mexican restuarant (after they had carefully prepared food for me in separate oil) when the waitress told me, "Stop!" They actually put a gluten-containing chicken baste in their Salsa! It's good salsa, so I guess anyone who can have gluten has no reason to complain. But, sadly, yeah, salsa can be dangerous!

OMG! I can't believe they add chicken baste to salsa. HOLY COW! Good to know info though as now I'll pay more attention. I'm from south Texas and we take our salsas and Tex-Mex ultra seriously. It's almost a sport around here to grow the best tomatoes & jalapenos for the best salsa. I'm so glad they told you and you avoided a glutening :D
