  1. I know that I get chills, flushed, sweating but shaking as I am cold...feels like a fever but I don't have the rise in temp.
  2. I'm always surprised to learn that such small amounts could have such a huge effect. By what I've been reading I realize that it can! I'm waiting for blood work to come back as it would be 'nice' to have confirmation re celiac so I know what to look out for. Not necessary as I realize my symtoms will be the best Doctor. Thanks Ahorsesoul
  3. Thanks Mushroom. At this point I don't even know what my full gluten reaction would be. I have a lot of symptoms, digestively and elsewhere, some specific to eating wheat that I know of to start. I was wheat-free for years but still endured a lot of symptoms. Given that I'm not "food hungover" this morning I won't jump to conclusions whether or not it was gluten...just yet I do eat a varied diet and have had quinoa and other gluten-free grains for years. I'm just starting to track what I put in my mouth more closely. I do hear what you mean about 'unexpected reactions' as I seem to be all over the map this week! Mskedi- I guess the only way to know is to try the same dish and see if it happens again? Ouch! I think it's a bit ironic that these two reactions came from over sea products. I tried the Coconut Milk twice to see if that was it and I won't be trying that again with the Tahini I am going to assume that this will all take a while to get to know what I react to and what I don't. I did have casein allergies as a child (that I'm not convinced I grew out of) and I avoid popcorn like the plague. So far so good I'd say.
  4. I made a quinoa, veggie and tahini bowl for dinner tonight and I think I've been glutened. I'm new to gluten-free and waiting for blood work to come back. I'm on day 7 and I've been 'poisioned' twice so far...or so I think! (I've cleared out all the gluten in my house that is obvious to start) Half an hour after dinner I started getting symptoms that I equate to Gluten. Extremely tired, headache, a few hives, acidic stomach etc. The only other time I've gotten a headache like this was with another Asian product, Coconut Milk that claimed to only have one ingredient. The Tahini I have is also "100% Sesame Seeds" but is from Lebanon. I've researched Asian labelling laws and can't find anything. Anyone else experience anything similar? I was wondering if if could be MSG as well eventhough it says nothing on the label?!?!
  5. Can you tell me more about the Dr. Grubb you speak of Des1713? I am intersted in corresponding with anyone regarding celiac and POTS on behalf of my mother. Thanks! suzannespisani@gmail.com
