Was I Glutened?

Recommended Posts

Normally when I get glutened, I get insane ear pain (which apparently is the "grain allergy" part as opposed to the "gluten intolerance" part) and cramps, bloating, leading to D. Yay.

Last night, about 1.5 hours after eating dinner, the wicked ear pain started. Burning knives in both my ears, went on the whole night, and still now. Loads of fun when you work on the telephone, by the way. Anyway, the stomach issue didn't really kick in this time, and I'm confused. Last night I felt a bit queasy (not totally unusual but not really normal) and I haven't really had any D, just gas and bloating.

Is it possible that I cc'd myself with grains but not enough gluten to kick in the gastro response? My ears are on fire, typical for me with grains, but besides some nausea and bloating, my stomach isn't too too bad.

As for the "how" part, I have two theories: 1) the cheese we ate last night maybe contained something bad (it was from the farmer's market, not a store brand) or 2) cc from the toaster oven.

Arg. Also, if anyone else out there suffers from this ear pain, what the heck do you do about it?

Just a guess, but maybe the CC was from a different kind of gluten-containing grain than the usual. I mean, there are several types besides wheat, barley, rye, and oats.

This sounds more like an allergic reaction to me. I've read that some people have gotten meds from their Drs to cope with allergic reactions - maybe benadryl or antihistamines.

The cheese may have contained mold toxins and it may help to take high doses of Vit. C. Cheese also can contain a variety of other organisms which may overgrow very rapidly. People with intestinal problems do best by eating only cooked dairy products. Pasturization does not steralize dairy products.
