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. ;)

    • My RA blood test was negative and my dsDNA was negative too.  I think that the dsDNA is the lupus test.  I think.  I haven't been referred to a rheumatologist.   
    • Some people will always test negative on the blood test, odd and rare but it happens. You also have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the antibodies to show up for it in the test for at least 12 weeks. You can follow up with a endoscope and biopsy, if your having gut issues this might be a great idea to rule out other issues. I might also suggest a colonoscopy to rule out Ulcerative Colitis or other digestive issues there. Other thoughts you could have SIBO or NCGS. NCGS  can not be diagnosed...heck I was writing up a bit of a summary page for someone else about it might as well make use of the partially filled out notepad here.  Forgive any typos or misinformation still working it out for various sources. " 1. Acne, Flushed Skin, or Rashes
      Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity can manifest itself as a chronic skin condition such as a rash, acne, or red/flushedcheeks, but these conditions could also be hormonal. On the other hand Celiac disease also has Dermatitis herpetiformic or DH, which is characterized by rashes and chronically itchy, elbows, knees, buttons, and back. 2. Distended Stomach or Bloating
      A distended or bloated stomach applies especially after gluten consumption and is a fairly clear sign of gluten sensitivity. A distended stomach is also characteristic of malnutrition as well of celiac disease. 3. Diarrhea, Gas, or Constipation
      These three  symptoms can simultaneously occur after eating gluten and may be a sign of intolerance because,especially the former, is a way for the body to expel harmful allergens or other substances. Often, diarrhea(frequent loose or liquid stools) occurs with gas, resulting in a “feeling of a full or tight abdomen” as put by the NFCA. Constipation, essentially the antithesis of diarrhea, is also a symptom of non-celiac gluten sensitivity and is characterized by infrequent, hard, painful bowel movements from lack of physical activity or poor diet,namely a diet high in refined carbs rich in gluten. This can be made worse if one has a magnesium deficiency, does not get though hard fiber, or drink enough water. All of which can be made worse by the feeling of bloat/gas making one feel too full to need to drink or eat high fiber foods. 4. Brain Fog or Migraines
      Brain fog is a major characteristic of non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Chronic or debilitating migraines goes hand in hand with the idea of brain fog and results in depression or irritability. These again can be made worse by deficiencies, like B-vitamins. 5. Joint Pain or Numbness in Extremities
      Tingling, pain, or numbness in the joints or extremities is abnormal and should be a clear sign of a health problem like gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Colloquially, this tingling is described as “pins and needles” or a limbbeing “asleep.” If this happens frequently for no apparent reason, it could be a sign of gluten intolerance. Again these can help be alleviated and be made worse by deficiencies in Magnesium, B-vitamins
      Total elimination of the gluten protein for an extended period of time, say two weeks or a month, is the only true way to identify if these symptoms are linked to gluten intolerance, and even then, it would not be certain. If the protein is eliminated and any of the above symptoms dissipate, then it should be noted that gluten intolerance may be an issue, but be sure to consult a professional for solid proof."  
    • I have a friend who reacts to raw oranges, apples, and bananas. Funny thing is they are fine with cooked foods using them and pasturized orange juice. Some odd food allergy that gets broken down with heat. SIDE NOTE. I just reintroduced iceberg lettuce, and romaine after not having any in 4 months......I HAVE A NEW INTOLERANCE. even just plain iceberg organic, pieces from the core without chemicals make me horrible sick and vomiting....they used to be fine....WTF?! Oh well spinach is fine and the canned stuff is cheaper and more nutrient dense....but really WTF?! Yeah I tried 2 brands and even the organic one.
    • I had to research today from last night's reaction. Never thought oj would be  a problem. I see from past posts some have had concerns about orange juice . I've joined the club. Myself and DS are reacting to something in pure premium. Just wanted to share info I found in case one day someone else has this experience. While I can't say it is gluten cc we also are corn and milk free, just know we are having a reaction and we just opened a new pure premium that we both drank from. It is possible I'm sensitive to chemicals the flavors / scent added after processing possible culprit. Sad as oj has the vitamin c good for immune system. Which is disheartening if DS is as sensitive as mom didn't appear to be until now. I'm not sure but felt the need to put this out there for those concerned with labeling and who are sensitive. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/29/100-percent-orange-juice-artificial_n_913395.html http://gizmodo.com/5825909/orange-juice-is-artificially-flavored-to-taste-like-oranges     Edit: one more link http://www.foodrenegade.com/secret-ingredient-your-orange-juice/ Maybe today is a coffee day? 
    • Hi all, first time posting here. After years of feeling chronically exhausted, depressed, irritable, bloated (the list goes on and on...) and with a family history of autoimmune disorders, I finally convinced my doctor to test for Celiac and autoimmune disorders. All my results came back negative.  My celiac results were as follows   TTG IgA  <1.2 unit/mL reference range: <4.0 (negative)   Gliadin IgA (Deam) < 10.0 units reference range: < 20.0 units (negative)   Gliadin IgG (Deam) < 10.0 units reference range: < 20.0 units (negative)   Should I have my total IgA checked to rule out a false negative? Or is Celiac ruled out since all three tests came back negative? I don't see my doctor again for another two weeks to go over the results. I was convinced that I would test positive but since I did not, I want to make sure that I know if there is any other tests I should ask my for. Thanks everyone! Tiffany
