Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We went out to dinner and I got very sick quickly after dinner with super bad diarrhea and I through up. That was last Thursday. I've had to take the max of imodium each morning. I also felt nautious each day. I'm so bummed. I just want to feel better. What can I do and how long will it take?

Hi, sorry you're having a rough time. The length of time it takes to recover from a glutening is different for everyone. It takes me a minimum of a week to recover. Drink lots of fluids and try to eat some bland things if you are feeling nauseus. I usually eat rice, chicken broth, plain chicken breast, and rice cakes with peanut butter when I've been glutened.

I am sorry this happened to you too. I will track the amount of time it takes for me to feel better and post my results when I feel better.

I ate out last night and I made it very clear that the food I get must not contain gluten. I went through an entire explanation and ordered a simple skirt steak with potatoes. Today i got real sick and it hit me while waiting for my car at a Toyota service center. Not a good feeling sitting there both in the waiting area with a number of long visits to the bathroom.

I paid for the meal yesterday for me and my date and as soon as it posts on my American Express account I will dispute 50% of the entire charge. This does not really equal things but it sends a message to the restaurant to better train their staff.

It can take a while to feel better. If you can be at home and let your body rid itself of the gluten asap by avoiding the immodium. You want the gluten out of your body and taking the immodium could lengthen the amount of time till the reaction is over.

If the D continues for over a week do visit your doctor for stool testing to make sure you don't have food poisoning. One thing I noticed when I had salmonella is that unlike with gluten a dose of immodium would only stop the D for a couple hours. If I get glutened one dose will take care of it for a full day. So if you are not better soon do make sure that it is a gluten reaction as some cases of food poisoning do require antibiotics to clear.

I hope your feeling better soon.
