Something must have got to me and now I am in question?

Thinking I have it narrowed down or do I?

Drug in Question Cefuroxime Axetil Tablets 500mg - Manufactured by Lupin Pharmaceuticals -

I called the manufacturer, there claim is that there is no gluten in there product, they were very short with me, very rude....twice now after taking this product I have had reactions...

however...

Both times I was taking this product I also consumed Tostinos Corn Chips and there Medium Salsa...

Last Time I had more running to the bathroom symptoms and stomach pain...

This Time I have stomach pain/swelling/ but very very bad joint pain/swelling/neck & back pain ... I can't seem to get comfortable my body just aches...

Anyone else experiencing symptoms with these items??

sorry you are not feeling well. I can't say why this is happening but I do know too much corn in a day & a spicy salsa can get me.. As for the med again I don't know if it contains gluten but maybe gluten in a filler , who knows.. some people have trouble the filler celluose. It could be in & is in many drugs as a filler...

get better soon

Antibiotics can cause diarrhea and stomach pain as side effects, not having anything to do with gluten.

Did you eat the chips and salsa regularly before going on the medication? If you did and were fine with it, it is most likely a side effect. If that was the first time with the chips/salsa, I'd try not eating them and see if you feel better.

My feeling is that it's the antibiotic, but you never know.

Here is the expanded description of the drug including side effects and interactions.

Take a look.

This type of thing also happened to me recently. I saw different doc for tests. The last doc, a cardiologist, made the connection to the drug I was taking. All is better.

Hang in there.

    •   Ironic, We went entirely gluten-free in our home after 2016 for how bad my neurological , joints, mood gets now in addition to my former gi, skin, and other issues . My son shows signs of my early symptoms and voluntarily went off gluten, corn, and milk like me as he did his own food like diary symptom tracking. My daughter continues on gluten outside the home. We warn her of our concern for at times in toddler hood she was constipated and would bloat.  We asked their Dr to test them as I was undergoing my testing and she said no until I had my diagnosis. As we know these things take time and my son went gluten-free . He said after watching mom on my gluten challenge that he will not go back on it .  We await technology further research and we silently watch our soon to be teen girl for we know even if tested negative it can show up one day.  She says I know mom I know. The more Whole Foods here in the home we notice she actually craves gluten / processed foods less and is slowly transitioning as well.  Does your child also naturally eat less gluten and processed as well away from home? I wonder if the taste buds / craving change as the parents diet changes food options.  Thoughts?
    • Funny though, my brother and I were just discussing this. He has celiac and both his son and him are gene positive. Both were TTG/EMA negative but never tested for DGP. My brother had damage on endoscopy. They have not scoped his son. He feels his son is symptomatic but not his daughter.  I have conflicting positive and negative DGP, recent damage on biopsy and negative TTG/EMA. Two years ago my son had negative TTG and DGP. No EMA. I plan to have him gene tested and full antibodies screened again.  My brother has opted to have his children follow a gluten-free diet. I am currently allowing my son a normal diet.  But my own chaos with diagnosis, and my brother's too because he was TTG negative, makes me ultra sensitive to the possibility.  My son's ped doc has a  daughter who was recently diagnosed with celiac.  it was in the family so her mom, my son's doctor, suspected it as soon as she started getting digestive issues and losing weight.  she pretty much told me that she was glad that they didn't put her on a gluten-free diet as a child so she can enjoy eating the things she wanted to Throughout her life.  I have to say I agree to a large extent. There are many diseases that we could get At anytime. we cannot change our lives for that reason alone.  However that being said, my family has both thyroid disease and multiple sclerosis as well.   I know all too well the naive statements and assumptions that doctors can make in the face of science still working to find conclusions.  There are other types of TTG the doctors don't typically test for.  I am well aware of this, and sensitive to it. As a parent, I'm going to allow my son to continue on a normal diet for now, but we are going to pursue testinG  And I'm going to watch it very closely.  
    • It might generate based on traffic searches  or posts etc. My guess. I read them and respond because I wasn't on here as a member in 2012. I only use to visit then. So it's new to me V. happy friday   😋  
    • Just saying her TTg was 0 & her IgA was 27 doesn't tell us anything. Every lab can have different values so we need the reference ranges not just the results. Can you look back at the lab report & get those & post them please? Did they tell you she MUST be eating gluten every single day until all testing is done? Don't make a fatal mistake & take her off of gluten yet.
    • When the doc did the endoscopy, did he take biopsies? How many? From what locations? Get your records!!!! If he didn't take biopsies for celiac disease then he can NOT say you don't have it. 99% of the time, villi damage can not be SEEN by the GI doc during the endoscopy. And yes, the doc has no clue when saying it doesn't matter that you were gluten free for 3 years!
