Was It The Beef?

Recommended Posts

So I went out to my favorite Thai place on Thursday nite. I've been there at least five times with no gastrointenstinal incidents. I had the same thing I usually get except for they had filets. So I got a filet instead of the normal chicken.

Usually when I get glutened it hits me by the end of the meal and it lasts about three days. I was fine after the meal - it wasn't until the next morning that it hit me. Then I had vomiting, cramping, headache, fatigue along with shards of glass lodged in my intestinal lining.

I felt like that most of Friday, but by Friday nite the bulk of the intestinal stuff was gone.

So, I'm thinking it wasn't gluten because it would've lasted longer and it would've come on sooner. could it have been the beef? I haven't eaten any beef for over 6 weeks. and I know that it's a bit hard to digest.

Or it could just be my body being angry at me. After the elimination diet failed, I fell off the casein wagon into a delicious land of cheese. My stomach has NOT been happy with me...maybe eating out just pushed it over the edge?

I go see a *comprehensive* doctor in about a week and she's going to tell me i must hop back onto the casein train and end the vacation. So I'm living it up a bit more than I normally would. :rolleyes:

Thoughts?

My guess is that it probably is gluten, because you ate out. My gluten reactions vary...from almost right away, to hours later, and have different symptoms sometimes. Mine ususally hit really hard really fast.... but, I went out to eat (and I NEVER eat out because I am so sensitive) this week at a "safe" place....hours later I felt it and am still dealing with it.

If you had eaten at home...that would be a different story. But because you ate out, even though you have eaten there safely before (which is not necessarily a guarantee of further success, unfortunately :(), I would be inclined to think it is gluten.

I hope you feel better!

I just got over a stomach virus (mostly over) and it sounds a lot like your symptoms. These suckers are going around now and they're highly contagious! Whole cruise ships full of people get hit with them. Just about everyone that was at my Thanksgiving dinner has come down with it, my neices's husband probably gave it to us all.

I had vomiting, chills and muscle aches. The next day I was just nauseous and had a terrible headache. I haven't had much appetite for the entire week afterwards.

What are the symptoms?

When you have stomach flu, you may have one or more of the following symptoms:

* nausea

* vomiting

* stomach cramps

* diarrhea

* mild fever

* fatigue

* chills

* loss of appetite

* muscle aches.

The illness may develop over a period of hours, or it may suddenly start with stomach cramps, vomiting, or diarrhea.

How was the beef flavored? Did they use teriyaki? Soy sauce anywhere? Even if the restaraunt itself didn't use soy sauce somewhere, beef is now processed with flavor enhancers and such to make it more tender and flavorfull. And who know WHAT is in that solution. (saw it on Food channel or Discovery. Can't remember which). And yes, the reactions to gluten can very in a person. Usually mine is delayed, but once I did have an immediate reaction.

Hope it passes quickly.

Weird...I mean it definately felt VERY much like I was glutened, but I'm fine now. I've never had one pass so quickly. Plus the reaction was so delayed. So between those two things, I kind of ruled gluten out.

Maybe I'll make something with ground beef in it for dinner tonite and see if anything happens.

Mmmm...tacos with cheese :D and sour cream :D before my dairy vacation comes to a screeching halt!

Sounds like either a stomach flu, or - quite honestly - a mild case of food poisoning. No, in the case of mild cases of food poisoning, other people do not have to have gotten sick - it depends on how well your body fights it off. But it could also be the dairy catching up to you. If it's fairly significantly out of your gluten pattern (timing was, you say), then I wouldn't be in a rush to suspect gluten.

    • Anybody have raised liver enzymes just before diagnosis. All my liver tests where fine except my ast level was very slightly raised. GP said it was of no concequence and is quite typical with celiacs before going gluten free. I have had celiacs now confirmed by blood test and biopsies. Just wondering if this is quite a normal thing.
    • My only symptom was slight nausea that lasted all day. I had a lot of mashed potato soup as it was easy on my insides (the mashed potatoes dissolve in the chicken broth). And I had smaller meals 6x per day. Easier on my insides to avoid very solid food. The nausea lessened and went mostly away in the first six months.
    • I still vote on removing dairy completely for 60 days. This could help in many ways Probiotics are helpful normally later on, but initially if she has damaged or leaky gut it could make the issues much worse. It works for some makes stuff worse for others. I keep going back to the dairy as it is common to cause a feeling of bloat, fullness, inflammation, leaky gut issues, etc. Try making or using nut based milks, heck one of my favorites and simplest ways is to blend a few tbsp of nut butter into water to make a nu milk drink. Your doing smoothies? Try adding 1/4-1/2 cup of almond butter to a water base blend  it first to get your starter base milk.  Adds a ton of good easy to digest calories if you use a nut butter, I love doing this with walnut butter, try it with her favorite nut butters.  Kite Hill makes some good heavy almond based cheeses you can find in most stores. I have some coconut milk blended soup recipes if you wish make something easy to drink and get in some good fats. Have a butternut curry, pumpkin curry, and one tI even made that taste like pumpkin pie.

      I posted a recipe the other day for a avocado icing, >.> You could make something up like this and she can just eat it by the spoon.
    • Hi, sorry to suggest removing yet another thing from the poor girl, but have you tried going completely milk free. So not just limiting lactose, but trialling a period with absolutely no dairy whatsoever?  Reason being, lactose intolerance is only one of the two possible milk issues, the other is casein intolerance. I spent a long time allowing myself small amounts if milk on basis that my stomach was ok, only to realise my issue was the casein not the lactose. That means complete avoidance.  May not be that, but a trial of completely avoiding it (substituting soya or almond based alternatives) would at least exclude it?  Best of luck to you both from all the way across the Atlantic matt    
    • Awol touched on what I thought it could be, night numbness and cramps is often a magnesium issue, Also with gluten ataxia nephropathy is common causing numbness, tingling, or control loss. As you mention a constant I am thinking perhaps more of a deficiency, Raven goes on another topic, I had a issue in my shoulder messing up and pain and numbness in my back/shoulder with numbness in my arm a while back from some muscle and nerve issues and had to have it worked on by a massage therapist, seems my muscles had healed wrong after working out and caused some issues, she was getting rolling, bands and large knots out of the area around my shoulder blade and neck for over 30mins.
