I got cross contaminated from the peanut butter jar and didn't have symptoms until the middle of the night. Now I feel like I've got stomach flu... complete with body aches, terrible backache, horrible cramping and nausea. I'd made it over a month without even getting slightly glutened. :( (I was on a gluten challenge til the middle of April and then went back to gluten free but got glutened at a restaurant by salad dressing.)

I'd almost forgotten how bad I can feel. THIS SUCKS!!! I only discovered I'm gluten intolerant about 6 months ago (although I've had the symptoms all my life.) We've discovered my 2 year old son is gluten intolerant as well, so at least we caught it early for him.

I guess I can be thankful that my throat hasn't swelled up like it does sometimes, but at least that goes away with benadryl. I haven't had body aches and the whole list of symptoms since April when I was constantly eating gluten for the challenge.

Just needed to vent a little. I get so frustrated I want to cry. I'm still getting used to the fact that there are so many things I can't eat anymore without checking labels, and it's hard to realize that I can't trust anybody when they say something is gluten free. My in-laws were visiting and contaminated the jelly jar right in front of me and I didn't notice until my husband caught me before I put it on my gluten-free bread. I mean it was a lesson for them how sensitive I am and they were nice and understanding about it, but it's still hard to constantly be educating other people.

Have 2 jellies, butter tubs, PB, etc. Put some bright colored tape on the gluten-free one & put your name on it. Anyone who misses hot pick tape with Jen on it is just inconsiderate or mean. Probably shouldn't be in your house. :blink:

I am so sorry. I have felt the same frustration (cried some of the same tears) as I've tried to prevent cross contamination issues from making my gluten-free husband so ill. He's been gluten-free for two years and last year I finally convinced him that the entire house needs to be gluten-free as well. We do great at home, but even when we bring our own food to eat dinner with family he inevitably comes home sick. We're planning a trip to visit family next weekend and I'm already anxious about it. We've never made it through a trip w/o him gettin glutened at least once. So discouraging.

Weird thing is, just after writing the above post I started chilling and running fever. Ran fever (little over 100) for about 16 hours, couldn't eat, and then fever was gone. Woke up yesterday morning feeling better except for a headache and my stomach's still very very sensitive, and I had a round of extremely loose stool yesterday too. Stomach is still sensitive today. I am starting to think the fever may have been gluten related???

Can super sensitive gluten intolerant patients run fever with being glutened?

As of right now I've only been diagnosed Gluten Intolerant. My initial round of Celiac testing came back negative (including biopsies, but only 2 were done). I was not happy with the first doc at all and went to a new GI doc. My new doctor says I wasn't on a proper gluten challenge and the right blood tests weren't done to be completely conclusive. He wants to redo all of the testing (including biopsies- getting 7 this time) and go ahead with the genetic test. I'm not starting that all until this fall.

By the way.... I hadn't been out of the house to be exposed to anyone in the previous 72 hours, and I had not been around anyone who was sick at all in the past 2 weeks that I know of.

You wonderful woman. Your husband is so lucky. All our worrying and persuading has to come from the other direction. It isn't taken very well either.

I agree that with super sensitives the whole house needs to be gluten-free. We tried very hard to do it shared and just couldn't.

I get a low grade fever when I get glutened, either a few hours after, or the next day sometime, along with chills and the big D. Low grade fever can continue even when D has stopped, it's quite weird. Before I went gluten free, I kept on getting the chills/fever feeling, and wondering what the hell was wrong with me!

My son runs a fever when he has been contaminated. Sometimes they are even pretty high. Scares me to death!

I run a fever for a few days after getting glutened too. Usually 100.8 to 101F.

I am very new to this, was just diagnosed two months ago and I am having the hardest time. I am beginning to feel like there is gluten everywhere. it seems worse now that I know. I have chronic hay fever and want to cry all the time, but I am too exhausted. Please tell me its gets better.

It gets better. I felt like giving up on life pretty often at the beginning because it is so hard and I kept getting glutened. Plus, I think my brain was messed up from all that gluten. If I hadn't had children depending on me I might have done something about it.

Now life is beautiful and I feel like I have the energy and enthusiasm of a child.

Hang in there. It will get better!

    • All the above plus, "oh, so you can't eat bread".  And being oblivious to undiagnosed celiac disease causing myriad organ/nerve damage.  
    • Might help with ease of digestion, and there is studies that show it helps in the breaking down of carbohydrates so it helps reduce gas, bloating, and indigestion, But not really helping much your immune system attacking your intestines trying to kill the gluten, Still going to get damage and stuff in the background.  I use it in making dairy free cheese, and sauces to give it that "bite" I also use it in baking in combination with baking soda subs and baking powder for rising gluten free and yeast free baked goods.

       
    • If flying I do not know, I normally take a car or train. And I bring chef kit with a griddle, and nordicware cookware. My thoughts, bring meal replacement shakes, jars of nut butters, and protein/nut bars, Perhaps crackers? I know they make some gluten free ones (I can not consume most as I can not have carbs or grains). I honestly make Nut meal/butter porridge out of coconut and almond flour with almond butter. I add extracts and stevia for flavor and sweetener. Other thoughts for cooking in your hotel room. Noridicware makes microwave cookware, grill sheets, steamers, omelette makers (know you can not), rice cookers. etc. You can bring these in your luggage easier and just use the microwave or request one in your room. This way you can say have steamed fish and veggies, bacon, rice, porridge, etc. and fix it safely right in your room.
    • If you are celiac you HAVE to be gluten free no matter how inconvienent it may seem to you.  Your body is clearly telling you to stop cheating on the gluten free lifestyle. If you need help with identifying where you can improve we are here to help in any way we can. You need to go and read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section. It has a lot of valuable info for you. I hope your pain resolves soon but be aware that for some repeat glutenings can lead to the development of other autoimmune problems and for some the pain of each repeat glutening can increase as well.
    • Unless you go 100% gluten free it will only get worse, lead to complications, and eventually kill you. I did not know about mine for years and ended up with other auto immune disease, multiple allergies, and  food intolerance issues. I thought I was dying when I figured it out and went gluten free. You can not cheat on this diet as the antibodies will spike for weeks to a month. Symptoms from a gluten exposure can take days, weeks, and months to go away. In the case of nerve damage (mine started effecting my brain and nervous system) years before you start seeing improvement.

      It is quite hard at first, but once you get it down it becomes second nature. there are many gluten free alternatives now days to make it easier. Now with your severe amount of issues and pain ignoring it. You probably already developed other food intolerance issues, and will probably have a very limited diet for awhile til you heal somewhat.
