Glutened On Tuesday.....

Still feeling like a dried out turd on a bad stretch of road.

I'm sitting here on the verge of tears for no reason, I've been snapping at my husband (who does NOT deserve it), I feel like I've spent the last 3.5 days in the bathroom and I'm tired and itchy.

How long does this normally last for you all?

My reactions last a good 2 weeks with the 7th day being the absolute worst day.Reactions vary from person to person though.

Hang in there..it will get better

I hate to say I was severly glutend about a month ago and I'm not better yet, I still have the runs... I was fine before this.... sigh. I haven't really done much for it, I just now started Pepto (I get really sick with Imodium, it makes me feel drunk, dizzy vertigo, yuck) and its a bit better already. Once you've been gluten-free a while ingesting gluten can really do a number on you.

I was glutened last weekend and I'm still feeling ill. I stayed home from work on Monday and Tuesday and I basically have lived on bananas, rice, and yogurt since then.

I'm almost 100% sure that I have been glutened through contamination perhaps more than once during the past week. I've got all my gluten symtoms and I've even broke out in something that may be DH.... I think it's going to take awhile for these symtoms to pass. It's so annoying when this happens... but it really make me realize how careful I have to be... I guess I've kind-of slacked off with my anti-gluten"carefulness" and now I'm paying for it :(

6-7 days for me, with day 2-4 being the worst. I get awfully crabby as well. Hopefully, it'll pass soon for you.

Minde seems shorter, I don't know why that is, but it only lasts 3-5 days for me. I have a high metabolisim, however, so that might play a role in it.

Feel better soon!

I'm starting to feel better today. I'm still very tired and lethargic feeling, but except for the DH my other symptoms are clearing up. Thanks everyone for the replies!

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
