Does This Happen To Anyone Else Here?

Every time I get glutened, I get intense intestinal cramps that feel like I ate cement and glass, bloating and gas for several days. A few days of D then it goes into C with floating stool.Then as the pain lessens, I get mucous, but not always in the stool. Often I will pass gas and pass mucous. OR I feel like I have to go but just pass gas and mucous. After the mucous stage I start feeling well again.

Hi gluten-free. Yup, same thing. The cramps are quite severe, then the D and onto to C. I am prone to C so that doesn't surprise me. Have you been tested for Fat Malabsorbtion? The mucus your seeing may actually be fat. I have it and yes it can come out with or without stool. Can be small and mucus like or have a life of its own. May be something to look into.

Your reaction to gluten seems perfectly normal to me.

Thanks so much for answering my question. I do think it may be fat and not mucus because as soon as the pain subsides, the symptom stops as well. I think when I am absorbing my food, the fat malabsorbtion stops.

Does this happen to you only when glutened or does it come and go? I was glutened a week and half ago. It stopped for a few days but is now back. I can usually trace it back to gluten and or corn. I haven't had either I am sure of so I guess I am still healing from the last zap.

It happens when glutened, too much caffeine or stimulants, severe anxiety, have had it with heat exhaustion also. These cases are not as severe as being glutened but follow the pattern.

Same thing for me. It's usually the last symptom in a series of symptoms from being glutened. Same exact thing every time. Once it resolves, I am good to go...until.....the next glutening. :rolleyes:

Yup, that's basically how I know I've had gluten. :lol:

When I was first diagnosed gluten-free I would sing a song outloud when I would be tempted to eat gluten-filled foods.

Annie Lenox song - Feels just like I'm swallowing broken glass

Swallowing swallowing broken glass

It amuses me still. :)
