I have been gluten free for 8 days. I have felt like I had the flu for most of them but my stomach was fine. I have not had D in a looong time even before going gluten free. I felt great today and thought I finally turned a corner. Then, right after dinner I had awful D with gas and stomach rumbling. ugh. Why would D start now? Did I get glutened? Or is this just another stage in the gluten withdrawl? Anyone have a similar experience?

It is likely you got glutened IMHO. What are you eating? Hopefully it is mostly unprocessed foods as those are safer, especially when we are first diagnosed. You also should eliminate dairy for a bit until you heal. The 'flu' type feeling and depression are common with withdrawl but the D is IMHO more an indication of accidental gluten. We do have some ups and downs at first hang in there.

Thanks so much for your reply. Aside from this website I feel so alone in this issue. I have been eating brown rice, tomatos, cheese, gluten-free pretzels, gluten-free acai sorbet, frozen veggies(not marked gluten-free but i assume they are, right?), chicken (cooked in olive oil in a pan i washed very well), frozen blueberries...not much else. The D occurred after the chicken, cheese, veggie meal. It had to be something in that. I have three kids so I am no stranger to the somach viruses but this feels nothing like that. Ugh. Have I set myself back so far or ma I feel ok again tomorrow. This is really hard! lol Thanks again for any help!

Was there any flour or other food covering on the chicken? Who knows, maybe some of the gluten-fee stuff you're now eating is not settling well in your tummy.

I would encourage you to drop the cheese for a bit. Many of us have a hard time with it until we are well healed. After you heal a bit then add dairy back in and see if it is an issue.
