Thing with the tomato is i'm unsure if it's tomato in general or just ketchup and paste. I don't know if the paste caused me a problem with the pizza or if it was something else. I was worried about the paprika even though it was mccormicks. I'm not sure why....but next day sure enough...reaction. Felt sick a couple hours after eating it but the diarrhea and mucus was next day. NO idea what i reacted to. So I'm not sure if tomato is a problem or if it was just that i was so sensitive at that point and sick that anything with any zing to it my tummy said no more?

I should probably add anything including jalepeno kettle chips did the same thing the ketchup did..which is why the only potato chips i'm having now is sea salt or beanitos.

Can you have chicken too? I would tend to rotate between them if I were you. How about some salmon or tuna? You don't have to eat a whole meal of these things to try them. Just a mouthful or two and see how it goes. If it is all right, try it again the next day. See if you can add some more things in.

As for the paprika, it is in the nightshade family along with the tomato so it would be perfectly possible to react to that too after the tomato reaction.

Another thing I forgot to mention about what helped to make me this phobic was...when my attack first happened I posted about it on here and someone suggested a salicylic acid sensitivity. Which...if you go off of them..then back on..CAN apparently cause anyphylactic shock if reintroduced too quickly etc. But then I eat broccoli and what not with seemingly no problem. And that was listed as being high. Tomato and peppers...paprika...all listed as VERY high in salicylic acid. Potatoes are not.

But then I don't seem to quite have that either...

And what exactly is the scientific backing or statistics for the shock?

Some food for thought, anything spicy sets my GERD off like mad (reflux). Tomato paste generally is just pure tomato and some mild seasonings (salt, suger?). Ketchup is much akin to that. I'd call out tomatos on that.

At any rate, the internet does not help in this case and often sets us off on "whatgonnahappentomenow" tangents.

Coping thoughts ("its fine, nothings going to happen") can help some.

Do you think I should never try tomatoes again? Or do you think it's probably just a temporary thing because i over did it? I never had any issues just that one time. Ketchup wasn't the only thing giving me that stuff either but it's the one that sticks out in my mind. I had a lot of that around that time no matter what i ate... eventually it stopped.

Perhaps best to go easy on potatoes and eggplant for a while??? Like potatoes not an every day thing? I'm not trying to make you more phobic here, just reinforcing the rotational aspect of eating until your gut gets itself settled down and not so reaction set :) At first I was not too okay with peppers, then I was not at all okay with potatoes, and then came the tomatoes. So at that point I quit eggplant as well, didn't even wait for it :D

The tomato paste, ketchup, pasta sauce and pizza sauce all make sense because they are very concentrated tomato, with all the liquid cooked out of them. So if you were going to react to tomato, that would be the place. And no, I think you may be able to add them back in later, but just give them a break for now. Six months is generally recommended before challenging a food you react to like that.

Yes, a lot of people do react to salicylates. You will just have to test some of them that you do not currently react to, and see what your reaction is. I have no problem with salicylates personally.

Again, people are just making suggestions of things you can explore to see if they are a cause of your problem.

I don't have celiac. I don't have food allergies. But I have a lot of other allergies. I have OAS to some nuts. I have a lot of food intolerances. You could start with food allergy tests. Tell them not to test you for wheat. Tell them to test you for the other things. Is there egg in the Scharr crust? Egg gives me a reaction like you had. I can't eat eggs at all.

Not sure on eggs actually. Not sure if there is egg in rice chex, or ore ida fries but i don't think so. I'll have to check. I've been having very few processed things and i generally don't eat eggs so i'll have to check that out.

Don't think there is egg in anything including the pizza crust. Just checked. It does have milk protein and YEAST tho. I did wonder about yeast in my bowel.

I don't think we should convict tomatoes so quickly.

Ketchup has more than a couple ingreds, incl corn syrup often & it's probably been awhile for a lot of those ingreds.

Jarred sauces have long lists too. And organic non-GMO tomato sauce/paste/etc is a gamechanger for some.

Or hey maybe it's just pastes i don't like? I was fine until that..or maybe paprika just doesn't agree with me? Could just be peppers? I know my mother in law can't eat green peppers for whatever reason but if they are cooked she's good ...so many options...kinda scary to someday try and figure out what it could be exactly. How do you get tested for nightshade intolerance?

there are no tests for intolerences as far as i know outside of removing them completely from your diet than readding them later.

Wouldn't it also be possible my reaction could have simply been a product off too much spice? Peppers were in the bruschetta...we were having cilantro chutney all the time..that had peppers..then the paprika....perhaps a healing bowel just couldn't handle the spice and it wasn't tomatoes at all? I find ketchup to have a hell of a lot of zing too. Tart. But does that rule out whole tomatoes?

Peppers and paprika are both in the nightshade family and therefore closely related to tomato. I know tomato is a hard one to avoid, but try it for a week (and the other nightshades - potato, eggplant) and see how you go. With food intolerlances, almost anything is possible, and it is a trial and error kind of thing. We can talk about it all day, but unless you experiment you are not going to be able to find the culprit(s). :)

The only nightshade i've been eating since august is potato in ore ida fries...sooo...I have avoided the rest. And I never eat eggplant. My onlly point being since the other things were spicey type foods isn't it possible it's not necessarily a nightshade issue but a spicey issue? I'm just throwing it out there as a possibility. I've had zero issues with potato. The rest i haven't touched an ounce of it. Aside from those amys meals for about a month after the incident.

    • Get the full celiac blood test.. It includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA It's just a blood test, no reason not to do it. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks for the test to not show a false negative. One slice of bread per day is enough. A positive on any one test is supposed to lead to an endoscopy to confirm celiac. Since you're already getting an endoscopy you're good to go there. There are several things you could have, digestion-wise, so I'd do the tests. Celiac requires 100% compliance to the diet, no cheating, so it's good to test for it.
    • Where are you? Nuts are gluten free by nature, some companies might use contaminated seasonings, or make them in a facility that processes trail mix or something with gluten in it. This is where your concern lies, A nut only company should be safe, unseasoned nuts are your best bet, and yest if you can get them in the shell then wash them off really well before shelling and eating them your pretty darn safe with them. Raw walnuts in shell are safe, they normally do not add anything them to them, in case they might have gotten dusted with something just rinse them off before shelling them, I really love taking the walnuts afterward and putting them in a pan on low heat til they start to brown and lightly roast, they are great this way. I also used to take raw walnuts and candy them. Might post that recipe since I can no longer eat them and do not sell them anymore. I have a bit of a issue getting nuts myself by I am allergic to peanuts (not really a nut but a legume). SO for me it is really tricky finding peanut and gluten free nuts lol. I found 3 companies I order from, 1 for organic almonds, 1 for my own almonds, and one that sales walnuts and pistachios only. Most people here just order from Nuts.com but they might not ship to you at a good price. Tried amazon?
    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
