  1. The server might have also handled hot dog buns or something else that cross contaminated the chips
  2. For me everything buyt the bloating started healing quickly. My migraines and bleeding disordere were gone within several weeks. Fatigue was gone quickly as well.
  3. Have you heard the rumor that you should not drink from a plastic water bottle after it got hot? Supposedly a substance leaches into the water and makes people sick. I just learned about BPA, also known as bispheno-A. It is a substance added to some plastics to make them hard. I had been using a plastic water dispenser for several years and every day was about the same, except when I was traveling. I always filled the dontainer from a reverse osmosis filter because the well water here is pretty nasty. I would wake, drink water from the container. As I continued to drink the water throughout the day I would become more bloated, tired and have multiple stools, each looser than the previous one. If a plastic contains BPA it is usually stamped with the #7 inside the recycled symbol on the bottom. Guess what the dispenser had on the botton? The number 7. I checked all other water bottles, spice bottles, food storage containers and they were all safe. I have read that you should only use plastic bottles and food storage containers stamped with 2, 4 and 5. BPA is also used in many canned products to protect the interior lining of the can so canned foods are out for me. If you look around you will find that BPA can also be in baby bottles, many of which are heated in microwave ovens. Heat causes even more BPA to leach out of the plastic. Have kept water in "safe" containers and my symptoms have gone away. FYI.
  4. In order of the worst symptoms: soy, peanuts (both legumes so I hesitant to try other legumes), eggs, dairy.
  5. Could have been the carrageenan (thickening agent) in the almond milk or the potato. Patatoes are members of the nightshade family and give some people, including me, a lot of grief. Might want to look these up. Look at Dr. Weil's take on carrageenan. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA401181/Is-Carrageenan-Safe.html
  6. Rudy's Not Gluten Free

    I eat at Rudy's amd fine if I eat only the meat. Can't do the slaw as it contains eggs and can't do the sauce as it contains fish. I just had turkey and sausage from there today and feel pretty good.
  7. I can't remember the university, but there was a study done about how long allergens transfer via saliva after eating. It was determined that someone kissing a person who ate something the other person is allergic to can remain in saliva for over 4 hours after eating, flossing and brushing teeth. So gluten may be transferring to you when you kiss your girlfriend. Is it practical to ask somone not to eat for 5 hours before seeing you? Don't know.
  8. Ignorant Pharmacist

    For drug info check out DailyMed.
  9. Have you heard of steatorrhea? It is excessive fat in the stool. I experienced a lot of that before going gluten free.
  10. Nose Bleeds

    Did you also bruise easily and have you experienced tiny, pin prick like bruises? I had both along with nosebleeds pro=ior to getting off gluten. It was an immune disorder called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or immune thrombocytopenic purpura. Look up ITP and see if it fits.
  11. Reaction To Omega 3 Capsules

    I had a problem with tuna and fish oil capsules. It turns out that most canned fish and meats contain broth which contains soy and I react strongly to soy. Regarding Omega 3, try chia seeds or chia capsules. They are loaded with Omega 3 oil.
  12. Anyone know where I can buy bulk amaranth that is not just gluten free, but also not processed on lines that process soy and tree nuts?
  13. Starbucks Can Kiss My ....

    I got sick after having a Starbucks coffee. I think the girl putting the lid on my cup contaminated it after having handled pastries.
  14. I recently found myself getting digestive problems after eating venison, then I noticed it after eating beef. I found the tick articles and put it together. I'm in central Texas on 4 acres and must have picked up a tick without realizing it. There are specific sugars in red meat and pork that cause an allergy in some people bitten by the common lone star tick. Amazing!
  15. Alcohol

    I find alcohol to be very irritating to my digestive system so I stay away from it. It fires up the leaky gut very quickly.
