The dressing i was eating was Gluten free blue cheese...and just salad...the next day i was in pain for 2 days..didnt want to do anything but sit and be sad..
  10. I had 4 days feelling great.. im still healing as its only been 10 MONTHS since i found out i have Gluten problems...anyways it very hard to figure out what i ate because it could be the day before... But im thinking it was this gluten free blue cheese salad dressing at an all you can eat salad bar...... cross contamation? i dont know.. anyways, my intestines hurt and back hurts and i feel like crap...takes about 2 days to go away also.. anyways with the same thing?
  11. I Did It!

    hello again. When i eat i get these terrible cramps still and ive been gluten free for 9 months...of course i have slipped up once and awhile..easy to do... Anyways, i have been taking these Digest gold Enzymes after a meal.and it seems to help alittle.. I kept thinking about why they help me digest...Then i realized something..my intestines/villi have been damaged by gluten and its not easy for me to digest food without these Enzymes because they help break the food it down etc..So i tried something different and took them a half an hour before i ate on an empty stomach and guess what happened? it worked, no more cramps. I think by taking them before the food it gives my stomach a chance to digest the food and not work so hard. When before i was eating first and then later taking the Enzymes and it wasnt really doing its job, because my intestines were working hard to digest and it was cramping up... I am so happy now... Thanks surfer.
  12. I have been trying to so hard to not eat any Gluten and was doing well the last few days....Over labor day weekend we had hamburgers at a friends house..They wanted Soy sauce and garlic etc on there burgers, so i cooked mine on the other side of the grill to be careful...When it was time to eat, i noticed my burgers were still under cooked so i put them back on the grill and continued to cook them. The next day i had pains and my lower back hurt etc...Then i realized i cooked them on the same spot our friends cooked their burgers...So would i get sick if it touched there grill? i guess so? To get rid of the pain i took some digest gold enzymes and after about an hour it went away! does anyone else take Enzymes? they seem to calm everything down and work i guess??? I am also taking magnesium , just started.. Any suggestions? Thanks s
  13. HELLO, what type of asprin can i take that is gluten free? i was told that if i have inflamation taking some asprin could help me... does anyone know.. thanks. surfer.
  14. hello. My question is....I have been gluten free for 9 months...sometimes my lower intestines hurt still and i think i have inflammation because it goes to my lower back...Sometimes if i drink a ton of water it goes away..
