I Got Glutened :~(

Recommended Posts

So, on Friday night, we went to dinner and I was very careful about the handling of the food. I won't name the restaurant, because it is not their fault....it's my own stupid fault. I woke up Saturday morning and my stomach felt all bubbly and yucky.......so started the wonderful day I had....D started around 11am....but this time the mental issues were 10 times worse than the stomach issues.....I literally sounded like I was under the influence. I would start a sentence and have to speak very slowly to remember the words I was intending to say. I have never had this before. My husband and I were going out on Saturday night to see a show, and he asked me to look at a GPS map on his phone, and I could not figure out which direction we were headed on the map. It was scary. I slept until 11am on Sunday morning, and I still felt worn out. This reaction took everything out of me. Has anyone experienced a reaction like this before? I am really sensitive-I get hives in the grocery store-we believe this is from the bakery in the store. UGH.......

That is so frustrating! I hope you feel better soon. People have reported reactions similar to yours.


Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.

Ready to get well and get on with my life!

I've had very similar things happen. I had a friend ask me if I had been drinking because I was slurring my words. I tried playing a board game with my husband and couldn't do multiples of 5! My memory gets really bad as well. I do not get hives from the store but I've had weird rashes appear prior to going gluten free. Mostly were on my stomach and looked like a heat rash. The one constant is that I bloat REALLY bad and it hurts! The next day I'm yucky and feel sore, like somebody punched me in the stomach. I get so tired also, feel like I could sleep all day and still need more...sucks!
