What Is Wrong With Me?

I had posted about Monday night, how I ate out and either had food poisoning or gluten. Well tonight it happened again, but I made dinner at home and I thought all the ingredients were gluten-free. As soon as the meal was over, the nausea hit and this time I threw up. I have vomited twice--no bm yet. I made a "sauce" out of yogurt and mayo, with some spices. I used Vanilla flavored Stoneyfield yogurt and Kraft mayo. I used one Spice Island spice and then a Mccormick spice. I used coconut oil and chicken and avodado and rice. Am I missing something? Is one of these not gluten-free? Maybe I have a virus? But I have felt ok Tue and today until dinner time. If this is what is going to happen to me from gluten then I am in BIG trouble! Vomiting was not a part of my symptoms pre-diagnosis, and not even when I was contaminated before and I knew it. Do many others have nausea and vomiting after gluten? I always expected diarrhea and cramps and pain and bloating and gas. I am a bit worried about this. Any advice is much appreciated.

Karina,

Nausea/vomiting are my symptoms. I'm not sure, but is there any chance your foods were cross-contaminated in some way? I'm betting that you're careful, but it's just a thought.

What happened to be before I was diagnosed was that I'd be fine for a week or two, but then the Gluten build up in my system was so strong that my vomiting was reinduced.

You mentioned feeling nauseated after meals and I can relate to that. There were even days that I couldn't get through a meal without vomiting--and every item that I ate contained Gluten.

Since celiac3270 has gotten me in the mindset, do you toast your gluten-free bread in the same toaster that regular bread is toasted? I don't know how sensitive you are to Gluten, but even a small amount can damage the intestinal wall--my GI told me that as well.

I hope you find the cause, and that all is well with you.

Oh, something else I just remembered--have you checked your cosmetics and toiletries? (Especially shampoo/conditioner) Sometimes those can perpetuate symptoms (if you swallow lotion, for example).

Every expert who has spoken on gluten absoprtion through the skin agrees -- gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed. You can get topical stuff in your mouth by accident, but you do NOT absorb gluten through your skin.

I agree you should look for contamination possibilities. For instance, had the mayo been used for a gluten dish or sandwich, which would have transferred crumbs?

Is there a possible allergy to something else?

good luck

Lovegrov--

Sorry about the misinformation about skin absorption. A doctor actually told me that.

Well the mayo was brand new, never been used. I called the yogurt co. and they said that all the grain alcohol is burned off in the processing and so IF there were any gluten it would have been airborne and not measurable. I am wondering about the Spice Island spice I used and they do not have a ph # to call. I do think it is possible this is a virus. I have eaten a bit today, actually woke up hungry despite still feeling a bit crampy and a bit painful in the abdomen area. The only other thing I can think of is that there was a lot of dairy in my meal, with the ygurt and mayo and all and maybe it was just too much, although I have been able to eat a bowl of ice cream with no problem as well as milk in my cereal, etc.

I am hoping this is a virus--it will go away.

I read that the only Stoneyfield yogurt we can have is their plain yogurt. Perhaps the vanilla yogurt caused the reaction? Also, was the mayo light? I had a reaction to Kraft light mayo. Could you be pregnant? Or maybe you have a stomach virus.

I hope you feel better soon!

I'm not sure that I agree with that statement. It may have been the yogurt or the Spice Islands spice. If it was a seasoning mixture and not just a plain spice, then it has a higher probability of containing gluten. I try to stick with McCormick single spices and gluten free spice mixtures sold at specialty stores. Just not worth getting sick over.

But I also did not have vomiting as one of my symptoms and about two weeks ago I was vomiting one night, nausea the next day, fine the next day, diarrhea and nausea, then throwing up again with the nausea and diarrhea coming and going a few more days. It ended up being a stomach virus that was going around town, but the sypmtoms were not steady and it lasted a full week. I was wiped out and it took a while to start feeling normal again. I had not tried any new foods and I had not eaten out, so I know I did not get any gluten (or dairy, which causes me a wealth of symptoms as well!).

I hope you are feeling better.

God bless,

Mariann

Yes, I am still suspicious of the yogurt. On a previous call to Stoneyfield, I was told the only one that was for sure safe was the plain as well. As for the spices--I am the same in that I only use Mccormick ones because I know they are safe, but in this instance, I had this other spice that was just a single spice from another co (Spice Island) and of course I had bought it "pre-Celiac". My hubby wondered about the pregancy possibility as well... that would be really funny (well maybe not REALLY) because the other two times I have been pregnant I was convinced I just had a virus--I really didn't believe I could be preggo either time! :lol:

Well, I think it was a virus, and I am feeling much better now. Thanks so much for all the responses--and I DO need to think twice before eating that vanilla yogurt again, or using that spice. ;)

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
