Glutened Or Gastritis Flare?

7 posts in this topic

I went on a road trip this past weekend, and had my first ever drink of alcohol on Sunday night. It was Arbor Mist wine, which from my research appeared to be gluten free. I didn't have much, maybe 2, 2 and half little glasses. I didn't really feel the fun part of it, all it did was flare my rosacea and make my brain fog worse and my stomach a little burny. (It was disappointing, really, after all that build up!) I knew it was a bad idea as I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis in December and have been doing so much better lately because I've been babying my stomach, but I'm turning 22 in 4 months and it was bothering me that I'd never tried anything at my age. Anyway, I felt ok the next morning, my stomach felt a little irritated but nothing too bad, and it got better after I ate breakfast. Late afternoon I started feeling weird and out of it the way I had when I was eating gluten, but at the time I figured I was just exhausted. I got home Monday night and felt a little sick after eating dinner. When I woke up Tuesday, I felt TERRIBLE. Weak, shaky limbs, dizziness, brain fog like I haven't had in months, anxiety and strong depressive outbursts, extreme nausea, urgent BMs. I took charcoal pills which I think prevented me from throwing up, and I've been sticking with broth and mashed bananas and easy foods like that. But now I'm not sure what caused it! I packed all of my own food for the road trip, but there were definitely opportunities for me to get glutened. Among other things, the friend I was riding with was eating fried chicken at the wheel and I was not nearly as careful as I could have been, especially towards the end. She also took a drink out of my glass after eating pasta and we shared a bag of grapes after she'd eaten a bagel.

In your opinion, is it possible this is all just due to a gastritis flare up from the wine, or have I been glutened? Or could it a weird, delayed reaction to something in the wine? The mental and shaky symptoms seem odd for just gastritis alone, but I can't really be sure. I haven't really been glutened since going gluten-free so I'm not sure how sensitive I am, or how I react.

 

It really sucks, I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow morning and I have all this on top of it! No good at all.

Eclara,

Prior to my Dx, 7 months ago, drinking two glasses of wine gave me a relaxed " buzz". At present two glasses of wine have no intoxicating effect at all. In fact what follows is a sleepless night and several days of symptoms similar to having ingested gluten. Organic wine and " gluten free " beer have the same effect.

Sounds like glutening from the road trip rather than wine...actually sounds like you may have had a couple glutenings...road trips are great, but do need extra care and a bit of steering wheel/gearshift cleanings if driving is shared with a gluteneater.

Thank you all for the replies! I agree that it was probably the gluten, although the wine probably didn't help with the stomach pain. I guess I've learned my lesson about slacking now! I'm doing a little better today, the drugs from my wisdom tooth extraction are masking most of the other symptoms, so there's a plus! Weirdly, the glutening actually turned out to be a bit of a life saver for me today, as the stomach discomfort made going without food for 12 hours before the extraction much easier and the brain fog (which, among other things, dulls most of my emotions and make things feel unreal) pretty much killed any pre-surgery jitters I would absolutely have had otherwise and made it all go even faster. And now the painkillers have wiped out my muscle pain, so I guess if I was going to get glutened, now was a pretty good time to do it. Especially seeing as I've got the next few days off from life and solid foods anyhow. Killed two birds with one stone, as it were!

 

Thanks again!

Now that's what I call a positive attitude! Never thought there could be a bright(er) side to glutening lol.... Hope you keep feeling better...

    • Sorry to hear about your no meat, Ennis. It sucks his celiac disease messes with people in different ways. Matt I was living on sweet potatoes but now they bloat me, which is odd. Avocado's would be to much fat, I think. I'm three weeks in today, and the past few days my C has improved. So that's some good news. I do know I need to stop worrying about the weight loss. So easy to Google and worry. If I could get back to lifting weights and reclaim my shoulders I'd be more calm and less stressed. For now I'll just have to get used to being lean. Anyone up for a symptom swap. My off on fatigue has shown up. I will swap for headaches brain fog. R Be well all
    • I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results. A false negative is always possible since we have a lot of intestine but it sounds like you have a good doctor who took lots of biopsies.  Since she had a high positive it would be a good idea for her to do the diet strictly for a few months no matter the results. I hope you get some clear answers and that she is feeling better soon.
    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
