Missing Bread

Headache From The Bread Aisle

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have been gluten free since January. I have never been diagnosed with Celiacs but I have been told that I am gluten intolerant. I also need to stay away from gluten because I have Hashimoto's :( I have some good days and some bad one's. Sometime I do not know if it is from the gluten intolerance or the Hashimoto's. I am trying to stay positive but some days are easier then others.

I was just wondering if anyone has gotten headaches from being in the bread isle? I also notice that I cannot be around pizza or pastries without feeling sick.

Has anyone ever experienced this before?

Need Help!

The only time I find myself feeling ill is when I pass an Auntie Anne's pretzel place! I now take the long way around & hold my breath & walk /jog very fast! I get light headed & a drugged feeling...

The smell of bread makes me feel sick and I cannot enter a bakery without getting glutened from airborne flour.

I get a little queasy, but I think it's just mental for me becasue it passes really fast. I just steer clear of the bread and bakery areas.

Well I am happy to hear that it is not only me that feels that way. I have become really strict on what I eat and trying to not have any cross contamination but sometime when you are the only one in the house that has to be gluten free and you are the only one that cooks it is bound to happen.

Well I am going to have to start bringing people to come grocery shopping with me so that they can go down the bread aisle :)

Oh dear god, yes. The worst is when I'm not paying attention and walk right into the middle of a gluten aisle. I'll get hit with brain fog and vertigo out of nowhere and suddenly realize where I am, but then it's too late. I can usually make it back home - not always - and then I'm out cold for about 4-5 hours.

I've started to carry around little hygiene masks now that I put on if I go anywhere that may have gluten, like grocery stores. It works for 15 minutes or so, but usually if I stay for too long, I'll still start feeling ill again, sigh.

Would be much nicer if fewer places had gluten all around, eh?

I steer clear of those sections to avoid getting very depressed for an hour or three. I flirt with dysthymia enough as it is, I don't need to torture myself!

Yes I have even gotten to a point where it starts to effect my throat like I am getting a soar throat, there is even times when it effects my asthma. I wish I could open up a grocery store that has no gluten foods in so I can just get my shopping done with no side effects. :)

I might just have to try the mask. I am at point where I cannot even be around pastries at an event without it making me feel ill. I take Gluten Flam every night just in case of anything I might have inhaled or eatin will not take so long for my intestines to heal.

Thanks everyone :)

Sometimes walking anywhere close to the bakery department in the grocery store can be overwhelming. I wouldn't necessarily say that I've ever gotten any headaches, but without question it does bring back many unwanted memories.
