Yesterday I was in a rush all day. Hubbs and I had a big plan for dinner and it just didn't pan out. So he ended out having a pizza thing we have had in the freezer , I had a Gluten Free Pizza in the other Freezer. I took one or two bites of mine and pitched it!! It was disgusting!! So it was getting late so I ate a banana then a lil later  I had some gluten-free, Corn Chips. Well I woke up about 4 am with the worst gut ache!! It felt like someone punched me in the gut. Lucky for me it was "Just Gas" lol but now this is the second time this has happened to me!! The 1st time I don't know what I ate. I do know I am not used to eating prepackaged foods. So maby that was it? Maby all the salt that was in it? What would make me get so bloated and full of gas? OMG it was so painful!! Then in a couple hrs I was fine! :) Thank goodness!! I will not eat anymore Corn chips or a bite of another frozen gluten-free pizza!! Thats for sure!! Maby just a fluke? Sure was weird!!

It may have been a delayed reaction from the Taco Bell that you recently ate. For some of us our reactions can be delayed by days so it isn't always the last thing we ate that we are reacting to.

You may not be able to handle processed food for now.  I tried a bar once and found no need to try that again!  Sometimes even things that don't list gluten are cross contaminated.  Be happy with what you can cook at home is my motto!

Ohhhh Ok really ? I understand about the processed food. But b4 gluten-free It would just hit me like a rock! Hmm Well either way I guess that won't happen again!! I should of just eaten a banana and been done! Maby had another banana. I will learn! Sometime! Generally I don't eat processed foods. Or very often anyway. Only because b4 going gluten-free I knew processed was bothering me. I didn't know it was Gluten.  Maby I am healing so it didn't hit me like a rock? Anyway well I am glad it didn't go thru me like usual thats for sure. Thanks!! And really I didn't even put the TAco Bell experience into the equation. I always think the night b4. I guess I need to think beyond that. Altho I have been really really careful lately. Trying anyway ^_^

When I first went gluten free (for about 4-5 months) a little corn didn't bother me.  Fresh local corn was good.  But too much other corn products bothered me.  Bananas give me a lot of the Celiac symptoms.  I'm not saying that bananas have gluten - its just a food I know I have never had good luck with. 

 

Eating at Taco Bell makes me wonder where else you might be eating?  Maybe you should cut that stuff out for a few months and give your gut a chance to heal?

Yes KarenG Usually it is a restaurant that I get a salad from. And I usually order a salad that just doesn't come with croutons. And of course the dressing on the side. This is actually the 1st time I had went to a fast food in months. Well unless I get a pop. So yea I don't think I have been Glutening myself from eating out. I thought I was being good by checking. but Oopsi! I won't do it again... I have been trying to take care of myself!! I didn't know about the banana's I have been putting them in my smoothies, but not all the time. I have been pretty gassy also but nothing like the other night. And the corn chips were the Gluten Free Frito's ...Like I said I don't eat that stuff.. But I did because I thought they were all Gluten free .... gluten-free doesn't always mean safe I guess... I will watch the banana's Thanks for the tip.

A salad isn't always safe in some places.

 

I did not mean to say that you need to watch bananas! In fact most of that answer isn't what I said.  I just tried to show that there are other foods that sometimes can cause the same "symptoms" in some people!

 

I think about all I can say right now, as this is getting frustrating for me,  is - Use some common sense!

Fritos chips didn't sit well with me.  So I don't eat them anymore.  You might like Mission brand chips as an alternative.  If you think the pizza might be a problem, keep the ingredient list and review it next time you have an issue.  See if there are matches to any of the ingredients.  Also, if it was an Amy's pizza, that might be the problem.  Some people have reported issues with Amy's products in the past.

    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George 
    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
