  1. I was just sampling horchata flavored ice cream in a grocery store, and the sample lady assured me it was gluten-free and that she fully understood how important it was. I ate it, felt the diffuse abdominal pain that happens to me when I'm glutened. Went and looked at the container, and sure enough...
  2. If you are getting more sensitive over time, you know the gluten you are getting inadvertently is causing you actual damage, in addition to any symptoms. That damage is cumulative over time. Personally, I choose not to eat out except very rarely, and only at restaurants that REALLY take it seriously...
  3. Oh, MADDI, it's been a year since my diagnosis, and it took about 6 months after doing the total elimination diet (I started at chicken broth) to have enough foods to feel pretty normal and have enough variety that I didn't feel like I might die of a weird deficiency. It took about that amount of...
  4. My neurological symptoms really came on in the last couple of years before I got diagnosed, and they were what tipped me over the edge to see all the drs it took to GET a diagnosis. I'd had D and intestinal issues for my entire life, but it wasn't until I had an incapacitating number of headaches...
  5. Good point. At that moment I really just needed to get home, and didn't feel like I had time to wait for a gift card. I was wearing light colored shorts... My friends definitely gave the manager and waitress some pieces of their minds too. They have a decent sized gluten-free menu, so they normally...
  6. Yes, I let them know right away and talked to the manager, who offered me different food (uh, no, I had to leave right then for the same reason you'd want to stay and share it with them ;-) ) and then they offered me a gift card, which I declined because I don't plan to return. I'm doing ok, a few...
  7. AAGGHHH!!! I rarely eat out because I also have microscopic colitis, and my diet is ridiculously restricted and the symptoms quick and severe if I eat something wrong, but I was out with some friends - expected to leave to eat at home, but it went long, so I got brave and ordered cheese and gluten...
  8. You could be developing microscopic colitis, which is inflammation in the large intestine that can be caused by celiac disease. It's possible that the glutening you mention triggered more inflammation that now is being made worse by foods that had been safe for you before - like an already skinned...
