Glutened And I Don't Know From What!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Glutened and had a blood clot in my D, anyone else ever have this??? Here's my long story...Yesterday...for breakfast I ate my Chex Honey Nut cereal with 1% milk (I have no dairy issues), lunch I made a Jiff PB & J (Grape Smuckers) on my homemade Bob's Red Mill gluten-free bread, and a bowl of Annie's gluten-free Mac n cheese for dinner. How much more Gluten free could I possibly BE?!?! I have eaten every one of these and have never had a problem. Here's my issue, I usually feel signs of glutenings under 4 hours of consumption...It hit me at 11pm right after a night out with friends, and hadn't eaten since 6pm (5 hours???)! I drank two cups of Sierra Mist at the horse track, and don't know what happened? Maybe a stray bread crumb being it was $1 hot dog night? I was 30 minutes from home with my boyfriend (bless his heart) and had to stop twice at gas stations....I was in such pain, sweating and generally just freaking out about it. I FINALLY get home and went again, to find what looked like a dark red clot of blood mixed with my....you know what. I hadn't paid attention to the previous unexpected bowel movements, so I don't know if there was blood there? I took two Imodium and went to bed....now I haven't gone all day of course!! I guess I will have to pay attention to it when I am finally able to go. Really, this was to complain about a frustrating unknown glutening, and to ask if anyone else has had blood or if I should be worried???

So sorry this happened to you. It is scarey to find blood as I too well know. While it is not real common for us to have bleeding with a glutening it can happen. It happens with me every time I get glutened. However if you do see more blood do talk to your doctor about it. If it is 'free flowing' or if you should have bleeding seepage go to your doctor ASAP.

It is possible that you could have picked up a virus or food poisoning so if the D continues do get things checked out. Gluten reactions can be delayed so you could have gotten glutened by something a day or so ago. Also some of us have issues with even gluten free oats and since BRM processes those there is the possibility that oat CC could have gotten you. You could try some more of the bread and see if you get another reaction.

I hope your feeling better soon.

Thank you!! I still haven't gone due to the Imodium, haha. Hopefully today so I can see how it all is. Trying the bread this morning....hopefully it's ok! At least it's the weekend and have no where I have to be. Thanks again!! I do feel better today.

Since you had multiple episodes of D before you took the Immodium your system may have already gotten rid of most of what it needed to. If this happens again and you don't have to go out of the house you might want to just ride it out and let your body clear itself. Perhaps next time you need to take the Immodium you could try one tablet and see if that does the job. You can always take another if the single tab doesn't help. I find 1/2 tab works for me but everyone is different.

If you like sweet potatoes those might help get things regulated again.

Thanks! I usually let it go, but since I had to be in the car for what seemed like hours (only 15-20 minutes) I freaked out and took two, normally if I take any, it's one. I have now finally gone this afternoon and all is good!! No blood....somewhat back to normal and feeling better! Still a bit tired and trying to shake my headache. Thanks for the advice with sweet potatoes...never knew those could help!!
