Misery Loves Company...what Do I Do?

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free for 4 months or so and last night after coming in contact with some cross contamination I am in major pain! Hit quite quickly (in the restaurant) and even though I made it home before getting worse I woke up today with horrendous bloating and pains. Is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process? It has been 24 hours and I am still quite uncomfortable.

Sorry you are in such misery. Some people advise to drink lots of water; others say pepto bismol helps them. Hope you feel better soon.

So sorry you feel cruddy! When I'm glutened I tend to start a regimen of gas-x (for the bloating), pepto (because someone told me to...lol), lots of water (cause it flushes you out), and a pretty darned liquid diet (because I can't really handle "real" food anyway when I'm that bad, so boost shakes are my friend.)

Good luck to you! Get well soon!

Ask your doctor for Mebeverine also known as Colofac. I also find medicine form is better than tablets. My doctor gave me Mebeverine when I first started gluten-free diet seemed to work if I accidentally eat gluten.

I'm one of the Pepto Bismol people. It really helps with the pain for me.
