So I'm outside working on the chicken coop when my 2 year old drops the feeder right beside me.

POOF! Big cloud of chicken feed dust erupts right in my face. Couldn't help but inhale it.

I rushed over to the hose and hosed myself down. Washed my face, rinsed my mouth, washed my arms, came in and dumped all my clothes in the washer.

I am leaving for vacation in 3 days, my gluten reactions last up to 2 weeks. Please, please, please let me get off without a reaction just this one time. :(

Oh, that is dreadful, especially right before vacation! I hope that this will pass quickly. Where are you going on vacation?

Keeping my fingers crossed for you that the reaction isn't too bad.

Have you thought about making your own gluten free chicken feed ? Chickens do NOT need wheat and can do perfectly well on basic mixed grain/seed concoctions to which you can add soybean meal if you want to boost the protein, and salt/mineral mixes. I mix wild bird seed with black oil sunflower seed, but in the past I've also used a molasses/corn/oat mixture or wheat - free horse feed, and added other things to it.

Re the reaction: you can try knocking down the inflammation by taking something like an antihistamine and an anti inflammatory, ie, claritin or benedryl and advil, or you can try for herbal and go for ginger root and tumeric.

Hi everyone.

I took a bunch of digestive enzymes and a muscle relaxants and went to bed. Luckily I seem to have gotten away with it. My worst symptom of a reaction is 10-14 days of intense burning back pain so I am very happy and relieved that I didn't seem to react too badly. I'm a bit fatigued and my back doesn't feel great but that's okay, I can deal with that.

We are going over to Vancouver for 4 days (leaving tomorrow), then I'm home for 3 days during which I have to unpack, throw a birthday party for myself and my 16 year old son, do the laundry and repack and then I fly to San Diego for 6 days. So this would be a very bad time to get glutened.

I'm already so worried about eating in Vancouver because if something goes wrong then my trip to San Diego won't be as much fun. I'm also a bit panicky about eating in San Diego since I am flying and can't drag a cooler with me like I am to Vancouver.

I thought about making my own gluten free chicken feed but was told that a gluten free feed that is high enough in protein for the layers would be really expensive and there is nowhere local that I can even buy the individual components. All the feed/farm stores here sell premade feed and I sure can't afford to feed my chickens out of the bulk bins at the grocery store.

What you might want to do to be on the safe side is maybe wear a mask when your feeding them so if that happens again you aren't breathing in the dust through your nose and mouth. Have a great time on your trips and happy birthday to you and your son in advance.

I will next time. I wasn't even feeding them, my oldest son takes care of that. I was making a repair to the shelf that holds their feeder inside the coop at night (we have raccoons so their food dispenser comes in at night and sits on a shelf in the coop.) All I managed to accomplish was spraining my thumb, spilling their food (well,Lily did that) and mildly glutening myself. The shelf is still broken but I'm not going int here again until after my vacation!

    • Thanks for all the input guys. Yeah I've had the vit/min panels and all that done and it was all normal. Regardless I've been supplementing with 1,000mcg sublingual B12 daily, 5,000iu sublingual D3 every few days, and since going keto, "ketovitals" which gives me some magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. Also douse everything in pink sea salt and drink a ton of water. For months now I've tended to get at LEAST 10 hours of sleep per night... Usually. I still at times have terrible insomnia, which is what happened the other night, then had to get up early. Got a total of maybe 5 hours and still feeling it now 2 days later despite sleeping closer to 14 hours a night since. So Ennis, you mentioned about lectins, which I'm now reading about, and interestingly, certain things I don't do well with (usually uncooked veggies, aside from onions) seem to correspond to this. I even do fine with peas, but, I cook those. I'll have to start experimenting. The only part that gets me is that I'm reading grain-fed meats are high in lectins. I've read before that the supposed grain/grass fed difference is BS, and in fact the one thing that has never let me down through all of this is chicken, and I just buy the regular stuff for that. Can anyone confirm or debunk?
    • At 6. Months I was still recuperating for sure. Still had the dh but less of it, still had chronic pain in my abdomen but less of it, still constipated. I was in the stage of eating gluten-free processed foods, which was too much gluten for me, and keeping my symptoms active. In all actuality my C stopped a few months ago. I've been gluten-free for almost 10 years now.
    • 6 months for me stuff was still iffy. I was having bad days good days wtf days. Seemed like ANY change and my body threw a tantrum like a little kid. Yeah sleep patterns lol. I STILL CAN not change them I HAVE to go to bed at a certain time and WAKE at a certain time (9pm-4am)or my cycle goes all out of wack (also take a mid afternoon nap) , the entire day becomes ruined. Meals are the same way. There is this like 30-60mins window if I miss this shot my body goes all kinds of wonky. Mostly it become anemic and my got shuts down and constipation sets in. Always have to have hot fluids or this happens also.....no more cold drinks lol.

      EVEN if your levels are fine, supplementing is something many of us HAVE to do. For me I do not feel "Normal" unless I take my B-vitamins etc. Heck if i miss my magnesium supplement I block up, stop stomach emptying, get cramps, and generally vomit after day 2 if I eat anything. Supplementing is the new "Normal" for me.

      Still to this day food diary shows ups and downs with certain foods, I can not eat many foods, and others HAVE to be prepared in a certain way. heck up until recently I assumed it was a histamine issue or mast cell. Then I found some high histamine foods that should did not bother me go figure, then learned of something called Lectins and my prep methods that work with foods.....corresponds to lowering lectin content.....yeah SO I might have solved that mystery but am experimenting with it still.

      Health wise I am now doing much better and after 4 years found that "Perfect" diet plan for my body (at least for now). Putting on weight,  and trying to body build, still seems to yoyo with ups and days but less now.
    • Sorry to hear you are still suffering so. Have you had a vitamin and mineral panel done?  You should at least have your B12 levels checked. If they are not over 500 then try a subligual B12. That might help a bit.  I take a Stress B supplement but was able to drop the B12 after about 5 years. I know how hard it is to stick to a very regimented schedule as far as sleep goes. I suffer greatly if I don't retire and get up at the same time every day. I am trying to adjust my schedule a bit right now and paying for it. I have been going to sleep at 8pm and getting up at 4am now for a long time which cuts out any real social life.  The last few days I have stayed up till 9:30 or so and gotten up at 5:30 with a headache and generally feeling lousy.  I started getting up very early a few years ago so that I would still get enough sleep even if I have to be somewhere earlier than normal.  Is it possible to adjust your sleep schedule so that if needed you can be somewhere early and not have it mess up your system?  I try to wake at least 3 to 4 hours before I leave the house. It is amazing how much you can get done and how relaxed your beginning day is when you don't have to worry about having to get up early to accomodate an unusually early obligation. Please don't get discouraged. It can take a very long time to heal but for many of us we were ill for years before we finally got diagnosed. I hope you see more progress soon. Be patient with yourself as there are no instant fixes for us, unfortunately.
