Glutened Or Stress Over Funeral Tomorrow?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Is it possible to have glutened symptoms from intense stress? My dad's funeral is tomorrow and, along with overseeing my parents' healthcare, financial affairs, care, house, blah blah blah I planned the funeral too. I know that stress exasperates Celiac but to the point of having symptoms?

My mom's friends wanted a pizza a few nights ago and I complied (getting it for them but not eating it). That's the only thing I can relate to a possible glutening.

Can anyone shed light on stress and Celiac?

(hugs) I would guess it is stress. Stress tends to exacerbate chronic illness and play a number on people's systems in wierd ways. For example, I get "c", migraines and back pain when I am stressed.

 

Best wishes to you and your family. I hope the service tomorrow is comforting and brings back only the best of memories of your dad.

Hi!  First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. 

 

Is it possible while under such stress and upset, that something has gotten passed your radar?  Sometimes, when we are not full concentrating when under a strain,, it is possible that something has got into your diet without you realising.  Of course though, it is possible to have similar symptoms to those experienced during contamination. 

 

Hope everything goes OK for the funeral.

I am so sorry....

 

I noticed I had a very bad attack last week when I was super stressed about money (I know, it seems small in the scale of things, right?).

 

My conclusion was if you do get glutened when you're stressed, the symptoms can be WAY worse.

 

I hope you can find a few moments of peace during the rough time you're facing right now.

I am so sorry for your loss. Even a non-celiac would probably have those symptoms if they had been under the incredible strain you have been, but yes, stress can bring on the symptoms. Just last week I had a very stressful day and my psoriasis (my strongetst symptom) flared badly. I noticed some digestive issues too.

 

Take some time for yourself when this is all over with. Don't make any decisions for a while either. No matter how "in control" we might think we are, after something like this, we can't really think clearly enough to make the right decisions when it comes to major things. Maybe take a vacation if you can. Even then, give yourself a few months before doing anything major or strenuous.

Oh.......you are really having a tough and stressful time right now, aren't you?  No wonder your gut is feeling poorly.  Sometimes stress can make you feel worse than a glutening.  My condolences to you and your family on your terrible loss and I hope all goes well for your family regarding the funeral.  That is so hard but you will get through it all and will feel better after a few days.  Just keep the food simple and hang in there......deep breaths!

They say the intestines are our "second brain". Of course stress can give you glutening symptoms. THink of it like this: our bodies react to stress in the organs which are usually the most delicate. It might be headache, heart palpitations, D (whenever I'm really stressed or really scared I'll have D, and it's quite a common reaction for non celiac people too). But whatever is your usual way of being sick will be exasperated by stress.

And what you're going through is a huge upheaval. Hugs. Be kind to yourself. Take it easy for some months and if I can offer advice, do not take any major decisions if you can help it. When in mourning we become a little crazy. It happened to me.

    • A ha ha ha ha This article is so flip floppin I can't even begin to comment  I.e. - you might be gluten intolerant but can eat some gluten !!!!????? may all potential people with real intolerances find their way here and not use this as their primary source of info on celiac, gluten intolerance, and wheat IgE allergy   yikes
    • Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now. 
    • Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one  The BeFree wraps are the best for burritos and the Newburn ones are good for sandwiches and even mini pizzas. They're each expensive but very good as a treat or if travelling. 
    • If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate mutiny. Before I insisted on this, I would always get sick when roommates baked, even if I wasn't there at the time or hid in my room during. It might be however, that your current method is fine for you though - not a lot of studies in this area to prove anything either way.
    • I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc....now that has me stressed. Like I have a limited budget but if I get them on these sales I save money for the next few months buying in bulk on sale......but then the stress of borrowing money and doing so....which purchases to make, what saves me the most in the long run, will it last me til the next sale...balancing all this out with a limited budget when your bad with numbers is scary/frustrating. Damnest thing is I do not care for the specials on technology. vanity items, etc. I am just focusing on essentials and stuff I use or would use daily to improve my life and make savings in the long run. I think the only actual 2 items I am looking at is a charm for my mother for Christmas and a water filtration system for my kitchen. Other then that it is all food, supplements, spices, and medications lol.

      OH another funny thought due to lack of orders, I am opting to go help cook a community dinner at a church for over 450 people. I already brought/opted in to bring my own spices, starches, etc for the areas to keep it safe for my stations and will be helping with the turkeys and serving up a bunch of gluten free/corn free desserts so I will be in a safe element for my health risk. Got 16 turkeys, 1 food service pan of gluten free pear cobbler, 1 pan of pumpkin chocolate brownies gluten free, pumpkin pies to pull out and do starting in the morning.
