Gluten Contamination - What To Do?

4 posts in this topic

I was just diagnosed with Celiac 2.5 months ago and went cold turkey off all gluten. A week ago, I had gluten for the first time and paid for it the next day. Then I went out to eat this past week, got cross contamination (I think), and have felt a billion times worse -- joint pain, kanker sores, GI pain, gas, bloating, heartburn. But I am positive I haven't had gluten for about 3 days. Could I still be reacting from the cross contamination and last weekend? I have heard of people taking gluten relief enzymes, etc but if I could get ANY advice on how to feel better I would appreciate it. I am so sick and like I said haven't had any gluten the past 3 days, so that isn't fixing my symptoms. Any suggestions???

Thanks!!!

People's reactions vary. It would not be unusual to take longer than 3 days to get over a reaction. But, more importantly, if you have been diagnosed as a celiac you need to put the gluten down for good because there can be some health consequences if you keep switching back to gluten. Your cancer risk increases due to continued exposure and there are some who believe that the healing followed by injury over and over can lead to scarring of the gut which may lead to complications.

This is armchair advice, but I recommed lots of fluids and a long hot soak in the tub with epsom salts (1 - 2 cups) and baking soda (a whole cup). If you have any mint, throw that in there too!

Pepto bismol won't hurt you, neither will Tylenol.

Sorry you got zapped!

P.S. Welcome to the forum, hope you feel better soon.

I would just go with the correct (gluten free) OTC medication for whichever symptom is causing you pain. And I would throw in a digestive enzyme with every meal for a while.
