  1. I’m pretty sure I don’t have a flu or bug, since I don’t have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, malaise, or body aches. Just this damn pressure and bloating! I’m feeling quite a bit better the last couple of days, though - maybe it was the L-glutamine I started taking, or just time. i already...
  2. I got glutened at a restaurant two weeks ago - I ate half a flour tortilla. This was the first time I’ve had a sizable gluten exposure since my diagnosis a couple of years ago. The other times I’ve accidentally eaten gluten (that I know of) was in small amounts (a few baked potato chips one time; sa...
  3. Thank you @Megamaniac - I don't hear about chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened, so it's good to hear of someone else. My current symptoms aren't bad, just annoying. It's hard to tell if it's anxiety tightening my chest, or something else. But since it's only been happening since I ate...
  4. About 10 days ago I think I ate most of a wheat tortilla (the restaurant stuck to their story that it was a corn tortilla like I had ordered, but I don't believe them - I'm pretty sure it was wheat). Nothing happened in the first couple of days, then I developed intermittent chest tightness, which...
  5. I had 23andme testing which showed I have genes DQ2.5 and DQ8. When I learned this I decided to stop eating gluten to PREVENT getting celiac, but didn't worry about cross-contamination. A year later I got sick, and eventually had an endoscopy which showed Marsh 1. My blood tests were negative, as...
  6. The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether...
  7. I love Aroy-D coconut milk, although I use the canned kind. There are no ingredients which could contain gluten, so I feel very safe eating it - and I eat a lot of it. I'm not home so I can't check the label to see if it says "gluten-free" anywhere, but I certainly consider it safe.
  8. Cindy's Kitchen of Brockton - I've never seen this brand before. It contains soy sauce - not something I expect to see in balsamic vinaigrette!
  9. I would never have known the dressing contained wheat, except that my nephew really liked the dressing, found it at the store after lunch, bought it, and brought it home. I would also think balsamic vinaigrette would be pretty darned safe. Goes to show we have to be constantly vigilant.
  10. I am in a very similar situation. I tested positive for two of the celiac genes (2.5 & 8, IIRC), and stopped eating gluten proactively even though I wasn't having symptoms (that I recognized, anyway). However, I didn't separate stuff in my kitchen or worry about cross-contamination. I got sick...
  11. I went to a big lunch yesterday at a distant cousin's house who I barely know. I really hate making food restrictions an issue in situations like that, so I usually eat sparingly and selectively instead of asking lots of questions and drawing attention to myself. The salad had dressing on it already...
  12. It sounds like you're past the experimental phase, but just in case… did you use gluten-free oat flour in your "control" spice mix? If it wasn't gluten-free that could confound your results.
  13. One of my only symptoms before going gluten-free was painful canker sores in my mouth, which I now get very rarely. I was already gluten-free when I first got sick (I stopped eating gluten because I have the DQ2.5 and DQ8 genes), so was unable to get an official diagnosis. My bloodwork was normal...
  14. A book came out last year about HS and treating it as an autoimmune disease. I think people have had great luck using diet to help control HS, as outlined in the book. I haven't read this book myself since I don't have HS. http://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Plague-Overcoming-Hidradenitis-Suppurativa/dp...
