Yes, it can be all that and a whole lot more. Some people get massive headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue,depression, anxiety,and it can last from hours to days depending on how big a "hit" you got of gluten. Look for cross contaminantion or trace gluten in your life to figure out what got you. It will pass, but if you don't figure out the source...it will return. Sorry you feel lousy and hope it goes away fast.

I actually have had a lot of that. I have been going through what I ate the past couple days and the only thing different that I can think of was some Ken's Raspberry Vinergarette Dressing for a salad that was brought to be and mountain dew. I know that Diet Coke is okay but I was feeling so fatigued during class and got a mountain dew for the caffiene I wonder if that could be it.

Mountain Dew is gluten free. I wouldn't think it would be that. Most drinks are gluten free except health food juices that contain wheat grass. Otherwise I have never seen gluten in drinks. However, cross contamination is an issue. Eating in restaurants...touching places where gluten has been and then touching your food. If you are fairly new to the diet it will take some time to figure it all out and for your body to stop reacting. Right now you may be detoxing and still having effects from your gluten days. Other than being vigilant about gluten, you might also consider dairy. Dairy is not well-tolerated by most people who have to avoid gluten. Just a thought.

Ken's is good! I get those dressings.

I feel the need to say that everything is not about gluten. Its possible it's something else like food poisionimg or a stomach virus or????

Wait.....wait... I just read back....did you say a salad was "brought" to you? Who knows where those salad ingredients were before they reached you.

Also all sodas are gluten-free. Unless you are at a Civil War re- enactment. Then beware the sassafras or root beer. If it's authentic it may have barley. ( but, boy, is it yummy! )

Sorry you feel cruddy.

    • I am not diagnosed with celiac. I am however struggling to get through a gluten challenge right now. My symptoms are strange and mostly tolerable compared to others on this board. My main symptoms are a blistery rash (heavily concentrated in one small area - on 4 of my knuckles), joint pain, fatigue and occasional boughts of dizziness and anxiety. All of which suck, but are tolerable in the grand scheme of life. So I have learned that I can drink a beer here and there with seemingly minor consequence. My reaction to beer is mainly just joint pain. If I eat a piece of bread though then my rash starts developing blisters which then keeps me awake at night. If I had to guess as to the reason why that is, perhaps there is less concentration of gluten in a glass of beer than a piece of bread. That's my long winded guess. 
    • You mentioned the fatty liver, so my mind went there right away.  Try your local celiac group for docs.  Or,  https://celiac.org/blog/2017/06/dr-sheila-crowe-becomes-president-american-gastroenterological-association/
    • I can not digest most meats or animal fats, animal wise I only consume egg whites, and once or twice a month have fish or crab. Quite easy, I found many meat subs, like jackfruit, beyond meat crumbles and beef, using cumin in stuff to give it a meat flavor. Making my own cheese sauces and using diary free cheeses all the time. I live on a ketogenic diet of just fats and protein unable to eat sugars or carbs due to UC and it causing flare ups. And allergic to corn, I eat a ton nuts, seeds, egg whites, and green leafy veggies. I go through lbs of almonds and coconut a week, <.< and about 3-4 cartons of egg whites, and 1-2lbs of vegan protein powders. I found a great carb free noodles and rice subs from miracle noodles that are a stable, nutiva butter flavored coconut oil gets used for cooking everything and slathered on julian bakery bread toast which is grain free nut/egg white based bread. I love and have posted my recipes for vegan cheese biscuits and garlic knots in the recipe area. My approach is quite unique since I can not have rice, corn or quinoa, or other carbs. But if you can have them you have many more options then I do.  
    • Hello everyone! I haven't been on the forum in awhile hope everyone is doing well! After about almost 3 months of being gluten free I'm finally feeling quite a bit better. I have so much more energy and just a better outlook on life. I'd say my good days are finally outweighing the bad!   So I had  question (I wasn't exactly sure which topic to classify it as though). Is anyone on here a vegan as well as being gluten free? I have been really getting into eating healthy and working out and I've been watching many documentaries on food. Almost all the ones I've watched say a plant based diet is really the best route to go. So I had been thinking about going Vegan since about March I'd say, I for the most part, am almost a vegetarian (meat is like an occasion). After watching another health/food documentary last night called "What the Health?" on netflix it really made me want to go vegan. In the doc. they explain how the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION did research and actually classifies processed meat as a "GROUP 1 CARCINOGEN" right next to CIGARETTES!!! They also explain all the cancer, diabetes, and heart disease risks that go along with animal products and how genetics only really play a role about 5% of the time. Now believe me I go into these shows open minded but skeptical since I know there's a lot of bias information out there but this documentary really blew me away. I have a decent background in science (having a bs in animal science pre-vet studies) and everything they say makes scientific sense (to me at least).  How would one go about even being vegan if there is so many grains we cant have? Is there anyone out there thats done this?  Thanks in advance! 
    • I had high antibodies, no symptoms, and a positive biopsy.  I am glad you are getting a second opinion.  I'm glad celiac can be treated (gluten free diet) without a doctor's prescription, since so many doctors do a poor job diagnosing it.
