Either Food Poisoning Or Glutened :(

Recommended Posts

I've got one or the other, I feel pretty yucky. I was stuck at work yesterday(supposed to be there just a short time-ended up being all day), no emergency food and our boss offered to buy lunch for us; chinese takeout. I saw on their menu they had sushi, I ordered tuna and salmon sashimi. I figured I'd be safe with just fish right? It came with with "kari-out" brand soy sauce, quick search on the internet and I thought it was gluten-free.

I ate about 2 pieces of each and they were gross-even drenched with wasabi and soy! So after that I just threw the rest away.

Last night I had trouble sleeping, lots of joint pain - fast forward to this am and I was making quite a few mad dashes for the bathroom, both at home and at work. As the day has worn on I have had some nausea, begun bloating(pretty bad), cramping (getting worse) and have a lot of gas (my bf is lucky he left on a weeklong trip today otherwise he'd be in for a treat tonight! LOL). when I got home just a little while ago I searched the soy sauce again and the website says the low sodium sauce is gluten-free, no mention of the regular-the one I used (no wheat listed in ingredients but it is from overseas and it has caramel coloring).

I feel like a big dummy; no emergency food, not checking thoroughly enough into the soy sauce AND ordering sushi from a chinese takeout restaurant!! I was just asking for trouble.

Either way, I guess I'm gonna be hurting for a few days, I do not have the option of staying home from work. I just hope that if it is gluten I get over it quickly. I also hope that if it is food poisoning it doesn't get too bad.

I'm cutting back to the foods I was able to eat the first few months after diagnosis, drinking extra fluids and gonna rest as much as possible. I really don't have any question here, just needed to talk about it, but if anyone has any other suggestions on how to get over this, that would be wonderful. I'd really appreciate it.

I was told by my nutritionist (who has Celiac) that the fake crab meat that they use in sushi has gluten in it. I don't eat sushi, but apparently the restaurants will put this crab meat in some rolls and wont advertise that its in there. I hope you didn't eat that! Feel better!!!!!

Thanks Laura! I didn't have any rolls, just plain old raw sliced salmon and tuna. Thanks for the info though, I have never tried fake crab-luckily I live on the eastern shore of maryland-plenty of the real thing around here! ;)
