A Little Gross, Sorry. But, Anyone React With....

Anyone react to gluten by passing globs of mucous streaked with blood?

Yoiks. sounds a bit scary. Any constipation, hemorrhoid possibility? The mucous is perfectly normal. Is the blood bright red (more likely hemorrhoidal) or dark?

No constipation or hemorrhoid's to speak of, not really regular but still going. I've seen the mucous before but never streaked with blood so it kinda freaked me out. It is bright red though. With the holidays this week I have not been very careful about my eating (still eating gluten free but have eaten gluten free stuff I normally avoid and also have eaten gluten free cookies prepared by my sister in law...typically don't even eat Gluten-Free that others have prepared) so it definitely comes at a time when my diet is not what it should be. I've just never thought this to be a typical celiac symptom, am I wrong?

I did eat some ghirrardelli (spelling?) chocolate chips which I know are supposed to be gluten free but do say "may contain dairy". I have an issue with dairy that is quite possibly an allergy, could a dairy allergy cause this? I know my daughter had blood and mucous from dairy as a baby but not sure if this happens in adults too, it seems pretty common with babies who have food issues.

About.com states that blood along with the mucous can be caused by Crohn's or ulcerative colitis, but I think I would more likely put it down to holiday eating. If it persists much longer get to your doctor and talk to him about it.

Thanks for all your help! Yeah, that's pretty much what I've read too but I would think if it were Crohn's or UC it wouldn't respond quickly to dietary change so I'll wait it out for a few days...getting back to normal eating as of today so we'll see how it goes. I'm guessing it goes away in a couple days :) Thank you!
