Gas On My Date...why? ;)

Recommended Posts

Ok so i went out with the girl im seeing last night. we went to an italian place that has gluten free pasta and I always eat there and have never had a problem. I tried a different sauce last night (marinara) and it had a lot of onions & garlic but i didnt have any upper GI discomfort and everything felt fine after dinner...a few garlic burps but they subsides after a while. My lady friend had pumpkin ravioli (not gluten-free)- we didnt kiss or share anything.

we then went to see a film festival and they had drinks there. i got a wine & she got a can of guiness. after the festival we walked to a nearby bar and i had another glass of wine and she had a jack and coke, which i took a sip of.

bout 30 min later my stomach started gurgling and i was gassy for the whole rest of the night. normally i get that type of reaction when I ingest dairy but i didnt have any dairy. Did I most likely get CC'd with gluten or could something else have caused this reaction? we exchanged a few pecks on the lips at the bar but this was about an hr or so after her last sip of beer and she had already had some of her jack and coke which probably washed things down.

Am i reading into this too much? i really dont want to worry and obsess about this on every date

I assume you've had the marinara before? I know alot of bottled spaghetti sauces gave wheat and or dairy in it. I also stay away from American whiskey. I've read too much that some US whiskey makers will throw in grains in the last of their process fir added flavors. I don't do blends for that reason. I stick with single whiskys. I cod be misinformed on that one but it has served me well regardless.

Despite the fact it is distilled the Jack would have gotten me. You could also have gotten CC'd somewhere along the line. If your not having other gluten symptoms you could also have just gotten gassy from the onions and garlic. You may never know and if you don't have any of your other glutened symptoms I wouldn't worry about it.

Sounds like it was a nice night and glad you and this lady are still seeing each other. It sounds like things are going well, your gluten anxiety aside.

Never had the marinara before, but they are very strict about gluten and this sauce is made in house.

I thought all distilled alcohols are gluten free?

I have problems with Coke, so I'm thinking that's what gave you gas. I pretty much give up anything that has caramel and HFCS now, it makes me so gassy.

Almost everybody gets gassy after eating onions and garlic. That's why Beano is so popular. However, I think Beano contains sorbitol, which can also cause gas, bloating, intestinal cramping and diarrhea in people with leaky gut problems. So I use a brand named 'ExcuseMe' which has the enzyme necessary to digest beans and other gas causing vegies.

Many of us can drink them safely and do so but there are some of us who do get a gluten reaction from them. Don't know which group you fall in.

...it is such a rare occurrence now that I am gluten free..I always freak out if I feel gassy and start thinking about what I ate and start checking label/rechecking allergen listings on websites. Every time I 'toot'...my husband accuses me of sneaking gluten....if only the worst of the reaction was gas... When I ingest gluten it's pain, it's panic,it's insane, there is raging, there are tears, there are migraines, I am doubled over with stabbing gut pains, the muscles across my rib cage hurt an then the pain starts shooting through my arms(that really freaks me out),my OCD kicks in, I itch, I want to run away, my ankles triple in size and I gain 15 pounds in an hour.....I have gotten really good at avoiding gluten...he has forgotten that things get far worse than a few gassy moments.

Glad you two are hitting it off!

Gas just happens sometimes. I had it yesterday and today really bad bloating. I think my little girl CC'd me. It's minor and it will most likely be gone tomorrow. It's just what we have to deal with.


Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.

Ready to get well and get on with my life!

It is hard when we have to be paranoid about everything. I tell you that I am very sensitive and I am still not all the way recovered more than a week later from kissing my daughter on the lips about an hour after she had a gluten filled meal and had forgotten to brush. I have been steadily improving. It could be the kiss, but I don't doubt that it could be something else instead, or just gas. I hope your girlfriend was understanding.

I'm wondering-- could it be high fructose corn syrup? i only took a small sip of her drink but still....

Could be, do you eat other foods or drink other beverages with HFCS? Since it is in so much it should be an easy one to test. Most jellies and jams and even pnut butters have HFCS as well as many beverages. You could try some of those out and see if you get the same reaction.

carbonated beverages make me pretty darn burpy. some people don't burp nearly as well as they pass gas out the other end. do you feel this way when you get carbonated beverages?

*gas happens* LOL. Not a funny thing Jason I know but everyone gets gas sometimes. even your lady friend :) I wouldn't Xoff that meal just yet. It was prob the strong garlic or maybe even the tomatoes.

If she didn't notice, I wouldn't even get it another thought.
