So I got an M&M sonic blast for a midday snack. (I know risky) And as I was eating it I noticed it tasted kinda nasty...then I realized I had just eaten an oreo. My first oreo in over a year. And now I'm sitting here afraid that I'm going to get sick... :'(

I'm sick of loosing favorite foods...and I don't wanna loose this one! I know food prep people aren't the most careful people, and I've found butterfinger pieces, and snickers pieces, but this is the first oreo piece.

I guess now I just play the waiting game?

Oh dear, so sorry to hear that :( It's extremely frustrating when you try so hard to be gluten free, and then some twit in a fast food joint messes up your order :(

There isn't much you can do, but I'd recommend eating "easy" foods for the next few days to give your GI system a break while it heals. Like eat well cooked foods, no raw veggies, go easy on the dairy etc.

Some people recommend Pepto bismol for pain/cramps, immodium for d etc.

Hope it doesn't hit you badly.

About M&M sonic blasts - don't know what's in that, but you might be able to make yourself - cheaper and safer. ;) I've also lost favourite foods, like granola oats, *sad*.

Thank you!

I've pretty much had to give up all eating out and this is just a major blow :(

So far no symptoms...but it's only been 10 minutes....

((( hug )))

You might have to ask them to be sure there is nothing but M&Ms in your sonic blast. Say you have a "severe wheat allergy" and they will be more careful.

You might get sick but you will get through it and be OK. (Which isn't much consolation but it's all I can really say since we can't "undo" gluten.) The one thing I'm thankful for with celiac is that glutenings only make me miserable, not send me to the hospital like kids with peanut allergies.

The one thing I'm thankful for is at least I'm home this time...with my own bathroom...not out somewhere...

I agree with you about the peanut thing, except at least people take a peanut allergy seriously... Most people either haven't heard of celiac disease or believe it's all 'in my head'

I'm feeling better than I expected. I had a mild reaction, the worst of which was the headache and brain fog. (Usually my worst symptoms are bathroom related) Thanks for asking :)

I still can't believe I've been off gluten long enough to think the oero tasted nasty :P

Glad you got off mildly! I had a big gluten goof up this weekend but it was all my fault! I ordered a bunless mushroom swiss burger wrapped in lettuce. I took three bites to realize that it was mushroom gravy not sauteed mushrooms. I felt like such an idiot! I was practically in tears over my stupidity.

My issues are usually bathroom related as well and oddly I just got really horrible bloating and wicked heartburn the day of...my usual rash the next day, but no D. Weird.

A note on Smarties for Canadians: What Americans call Smarties, we call Rockets. "Smarties" in Canada DO contain wheat. But M&M's are gluten free! (Save for the new pretzel M&M's..)

I was so excited that the big bag of Halloween candy we got contained a few different gluten-free candies - Peanut M&M's, Snickers, Oh Henry (I'm 90% sure on that one?) and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups..

    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
