Accidentally Ate Gluten

6 posts in this topic

I was making dinner for my parents and made stew with egg noodles. Not planning to eat any of it myself I didn't use gluten free product. What a mistake! The flour filled the air and I know I breathed it in. And then to top it off, I "tasted" a noodle to see if it was done. AARGH! After I swallowed it, panic slowly came over me. "Throw it up" my family cried. But alas I was stuck. The first night I seemed ok, just some bloating. But now two days later I still feel like I have the flu, headache, fatique, bloating, foggy brain, even a recurrence of interstatial cystitis. Does anyone know of anything that might help me recover from this poisoning or how long I can expect it to last? I have learned that I cannot cook with gluten, even if it is not for me!

You poor thing! I think we all try to keep cooking gluten for others in the beginning.

But if you serve them gluten free noodles, they will love it and all of you will eat together! My son and I have celiac but hubby and daughter are gluten free. I made scrumptious gluten free orange muffins with an orange glaze this morning and they went nuts over them. So introduce them to brown rice noodles next time.

Glutening can take a few days or even a whole week, especially if you are a newbie and still healing. Eat simple foods, lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, plain rice for a few days to let your gut heal. Don't eat any dairy, soy, or complicated foods. Maybe if you are a coffee drinker switch to black tea for a few days. Give your gut some healing time and help.

L Glutamine helps quite a bit too. It's an amino acid you can buy at places like Sprouts or Whole Foods. A good probiotic helps me too.

Rest if you need to. Don't feel guilty about laying around this weekend. Rest is the number one thing I need if I get contaminated.

Throwing up DOES help. It is horrible and gross, but it does help. I went to Outback around Christmas for my December birthday. The guy brought me regular chocolate cake instead of their gluten free brownie. I ate half of it before I realized it was the wrong dessert. I forced myself to throw up and it helped a lot. I am very sensitive to CC. I have gotten really sick from crumbs from my daughter which is why I made her gluten free. A half piece of cake would have done me in for a month. But since I threw it all up, there was only trace and I was sick for about a week, but not severe symptoms the whole time. Severe symptoms were only about a day, or maybe day and a half.

I'm actually dealing with sort of the same thing right now. It's Tuesday, and on Friday night, I got ahold of some gluten in some chicken broth. I've felt like I've had the flu ever since, but not as severe as it used to be. I'd been gluten free for 6 weeks prior to that, and for most of those 6 weeks, I felt perfect.

All I can tell you is to hang in there, it does get better, but you're gonna have to deal with the ups and downs. Some days will be worse than others, unfortunately, that's just how it is.

Hang in, feel better, take it easy on yourself!

I'm sorry you are not feeling well. Is it gluten? Hope you feel better soon. I am slowly healing. Feel a bit better today. It is so nice to have others to talk to who understand!

I can relate completely! Hang in there. It's Wednesday and the bloating is only just starting to go down from an accidently CC from sushi on Sunday; back pain still occuring as well. Nothing's worse than realizing part way through eating something that it was wrong! :S

    • Hi all- im so sorry you are suffering from this gluten nightmare.....  here's my story in a nutshell. Any friendly advice is much appreciated. I am 41, female, healthy weight, ex smoker.. even quit alcohol 10 months ago because of AI disease. Been DX'd with 1) Sjogren's Syndrome and 2) Relapsing Polychondritis. For those that don't know, RP is an AI disease where the body destroys its cartilage. Its pretty aggressive and there is no cure. It is fatal for alot of ppl when the airways collapse. Ive had chronic inflammation for probably 10 years but it is getting progressively worse. It didn't dawn on me until a few weeks ago that gluten intolerance may be driving this. I am in between doctors. I have a new patient apt w/ a new internal med doc 06/28/17. Id planned to ask her then to please test me for celiacs. (going back onto gluten to test this makes me ill thinking about it) My brother and mother have it. I feel good and have plenty of energy. I am a healthy weight. I run, I bike, I walk, I take an hour long aerobics class 3 days a week. I have NO digestive issues. My 10 page labs are green across the board, except for high inflammation. Ive started researching this issue. Ive had more injections in the neck and back and wrists than I can remember. Ive had ablations, exploratory surgeries, botox, trigger point injections.. even a level 2 cervical fusion due to high inflammation in the spine and OA destroying the discs. I have reduced gluten as much as humanly possible. I quit drinking. I take a good quality probiotic and fish oil. My hormones are all good- I take sublinguals for those. My thyroid is perfect. My periods are perfect. My skin is clear. Ive stopped eating dairy, corn and soy. I pretty much currently live off big homemade green salads with olive oil, I make my own soap (which I use as shampoo) I make my own laundry detergent..I even started eating several fork fulls a day of fermented cabbage (ughh) because of the healthy benefits to the gut. Its only been a few weeks. Am I just impatient? What gives? My eyes, wrists and spine are absolutely on FIRE. XXOOO   Tracy
    • This is really tough.  There is still a lot of research needed in diagnosing (or dismissing) celiac disease.  It shouldn't be months/years of misery and uncertainty. A couple of years ago Dr. Marsh (THE Dr. Marsh of the Marsh biopsy rating system) criticized the US celiac community for not recognizing an increase in IELs as early celiac disease. He asked if these doctors would like to be responsible for the oseoperosis or lymphoma of the undiagnosed patients.  I have also seen that it can take months for antibodies to rise.  There was a paper (2015) that looked at gluten challenges in diagnosed celiac patients.  These are folks with confirmed celiac  and for some it took over 3 months for blood tests to show anything. I hope the strict gluten-free diet works for you. I hope to hear you report back in a couple of months.  I'm undergoing my gluten challenge right now. Week 2. It's just really tough. 
    • My 13 and 7 year old have Celiac Disease and my 4 year old has the genes.  I have a double dose of the genes so no matter what my children will get a gene that could develop into the disease.  I hope that my youngest son doesn't ever develop the disease, but his dr said it could activate later in life.  My kids are thriving, they have normal lives, they are smart and have gained knowledge about food that they can carry with them throughout their life.   They really don't let anything stop them from living a normal life.  I think you'll have the upper hand if you choose to have kids.  You'll have the knowledge of what to do to keep them safe if they do have Celiac Disease.  You'll be able to relate since you were young when you were diagnosed.  How was it for you growing up? 
    • My 7 year old son has this happen.  I too get highly angry, like could flip a vehicle kind of angry.  It's hard for the little ones to understand what is going on at the time, only knowing that they can't control themselves....  The glazed crazy look in his eye are always a tell.  Sleep helps, along with lots of water the following day.  The next day we talk about everything and try to figure out what could have glutened him.  We've had talks with our school and teachers letting them know that our son is to not eat anything unless we bring it.  I think the last time this happened to him was from using shared supplies after a treat party.  Now he's very cautious of putting his hands to his lips or mouth.    Now as far as chips, my kids stick with Kettle Brand Chips.  They are certified.  Potatoes aren't my friend so I can't really say if they taste great.     
    • Exactly!! Scuff, are you doing the gluten challenge?  How far along are you?
