Hi everyone,

I think I got glutened on Saturday while eating lunch at the only restaurant I ever go to on a Saturday with friends. I live in Italy. The restaurant is cafeteria style. They know I'm g.i. I did choose gluten-free foods. They do make bread in the kitchen and so I am thinking that my food was cc'd. I am miserable today and have been for the past three days. Had tremendous gas and flatulence right after eating lunch that day. Then bad stomach ache no matter what I eat, anxiety, depression, very poor memory, irritability, fuzzy thinking. That was four days ago. How long will this last?

I'm a mess. I'm relatively new to this. Anyone relate?

Hi there

Poor you! I think it must be tough to be GI in Italy....

The restaurant does sound like a cc risk if they are baking and maybe also making their own pasta.

I'm new to this too (since August), and have had one major glutening incident. The symptoms were just like yours, only I could also add nausea, horrid large yellow you know whats, headache, huge fatigue and sleepiness. It was about 2 weeks before it cleared. One thing that helped me with the gas and stomach ache was starting to take digestive enzymes with food. Apparently they don't work for everyone, but they worked a treat for me.

I hope you feel better soon.

I think I did the same thing this past weekend. I still feel bad, tired, D, bloating but the nausea has gone away. I figure I lived so long with these symptoms, I can put up with them a few days or weeks. At least I learned something from it. It's still a little disheartening to know that I have to be that militant about it! Hope you feel better soon!

I got diagnosed five years ago and think I finally have it figured out. If I'm feeling exhausted, fuzzy, bloated, etc., I go back two days to see what I could have possibly eaten that got me. If it's just a little bit of CC, then I'm sick for a few days or so. But if it turns out to be a lot, then I'm in bad shape for months. Isn't celiac fun??

Yeah, it's a blast. Thanks to you and everyone who posted, I really appreciate hearing from everyone.

I'm so discouraged because eating out is one of the few things I really enjoy with friends. I mean what else is there to do? You generally have to eat when you spend time with other people if you're together for awhile. I'm really saddened and depressed because every single time I eat out, I get sick.

I hate this.
