I have been gluten free for 4 months or so and last night after coming in contact with some cross contamination I am in major pain! Hit quite quickly (in the restaurant) and even though I made it home before getting worse I woke up today with horrendous bloating and pains. Is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process? It has been 24 hours and I am still quite uncomfortable.

Sorry you are in such misery. Some people advise to drink lots of water; others say pepto bismol helps them. Hope you feel better soon.

So sorry you feel cruddy! When I'm glutened I tend to start a regimen of gas-x (for the bloating), pepto (because someone told me to...lol), lots of water (cause it flushes you out), and a pretty darned liquid diet (because I can't really handle "real" food anyway when I'm that bad, so boost shakes are my friend.)

Good luck to you! Get well soon!

Ask your doctor for Mebeverine also known as Colofac. I also find medicine form is better than tablets. My doctor gave me Mebeverine when I first started gluten-free diet seemed to work if I accidentally eat gluten.

I'm one of the Pepto Bismol people. It really helps with the pain for me.

    • I used the seasoned bread crumbs from Better Batter this weekend while making red snapper. They were awesome. The Company is extremely caution to make items that are 100% gluten free. https://betterbatter.org/seasoned-bread-crumbs
    • I would not worry.  Things might resolve on the gluten free diet as celiac disease does impact fertility in many ways.   I hit perimenopause at 40.  It lasted over a decade (the range of years varies from person to person)  and I experienced every single perimenopause symptom (on and off) in the book.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease after I went though menopause because of anemia that would not resolve.   You could ask your GP/PCP to order a hormonal panel (include thyroid) if you see him/her sooner.   This will let you know if you are starting perimenopause.   My Mom breezed through menopause.  Not me!!!!!    
    • .." Gluten Free Watchdog we have been testing a wide variety of products with the Nima Sensor. It is very difficult to put the results of testing completed to date into proper context due to the lack of a published validation report on this device. One goal of our testing is to provide recommendations for consumer use of the Nima Sensor. This is proving to be impossible at this time. In the opinion of Gluten Free Watchdog the Nima Sensor was released into the marketplace prematurely.

    • Yeah, I was pretty surprised. However, lots and lots of fantastic wine and gin. Even the house wine at a pub is going to be a nice French or Spanish something. Also drank a lot of port. And they take their gin super seriously there, some really good stuff. The closest I got to having a beer was trying some gin distilled from geuze (wild-fermented beer). Very nice. Make up for the lack of beer by eating all the fries.
