  1. I went to my mom's birthday party on Friday. They got me a gluten free cake and we all had the same ice cream. I always read the ingredients but this time i didn't. Saturday my head started feeling funny and I started having numbness and tingling in my face and hand. Then I was having abdominal pain and bowel issues; totally wiped out, slept all day. I knew something wasn't right so I checked out the ingredients to the ice cream and sure enough there was wheat in it. Here's the odd thing. I'm trying to figure out if this is completely unrelated; for about three days I have been having pain in my left eye. Yesterday it started to swell. It doesn't look or act like pink eye. I'm awake in the middle of the night now and my eye is swollen half shut. I'm wondering if this is part of the reaction as well. I can't remember the last time I had gluten; it makes me feel so rotten I avoid it like the plague. Any thoughts you have to offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
