I want to share with you the 6 things I do when gluten attacks.

One year at Thanksgiving, we had all the gluten-free goods a girl could ask for.

I’m not entirely sure where the gluten steeped in, but the only thing I can think of is that I had the Pumpkin Pie “filling” off the top of the actual Pumpkin Pie. Perhaps all the touching of the two got to me, or perhaps there was even some of the pie mixed right in with the filling.

It doesn’t matter.

What matters is that I spotted it immediately late Friday night. Here’s how I knew: canker sore on my tongue, sore throat, fatigued and I woke up in the middle of the night with chills, achy and as though I were getting the flu.

Glutenized I was.

Those are always some of my classic symptoms. The following days were filled with fatigue. And no one has time for this fatigue, so over time, I taught myself 6 things to do when gluten attacks.

Maybe one or all of them can help you today.

BTW – My food journal is how I was able to track symptoms, understand ingredients, and correlate what was going on.

6 Things I Do When Gluten Attacks agutsygirl.com #guthealth #gluten #glutenfree #celiac

  1. Tried and true Gutsy Bible

    Though it might seem like A Gutsy Girl’s Bible was just to produce for you, darling, I’ll have you know it was initially for me. The things I teach and preach in it work. And so, when gluten attacks, I follow the book to a “T.” 

  2. Gentle movement

    You’ll find me working out, but just a little. And the reason is so I am able to get some sort of circulation going throughout my body. Please make certain that you are reading this correctly. It’s a gentle workout; nothing intense. I do not believe intense workouts and gut healing can co-exist.

  3. Basics

    I return to the very basics. This can and oftentimes does look different for everyone. For me (and many others) the eats are very, very plain (think meat, fat, broth – see #6).

  4. Instant movement

    I drink one cup Traditional Medicinals Chocolate Smooth Move (please make note that I do not recommend this for long-term use – it contains Senna which is potent, very potent and we never want to have our systems rely on it). (Updated in 2019 to add: I’d now choose the Intestinal Movement Formula over Smooth Move in a heart beat.)

  5. Sleep

    Sleep, sleep, then sleep some more (if the body says it’s tired, then it is!) I promise, the more you sleep it off, the faster you’ll feel better.

  6. Broth

    I drink my homemade bone broth. In fact, I drink it like it’s going out of style.

And that’s it.

No need to make it difficult or confusing.

You are already under enough stress with the attack on your body.

Just be consistent with these 6 action items, and you will be feeling awesome again before you know it. 

By the way, please also remember that gluten’s symptoms can be found outside the gut.

  1. When I get glutenized I get an unbearable stomach ache and at the fun lower body stuff that goes along with it. I also breakout in a rash (DH) on my elbows and knees. As soon as I figure out what is going on I stick to a super bland diet of Cream of rice, Chobani plain yogurt and tons of water. I do notice that when I get glutenized my symptoms are less, but I think that is because I finally know the signs and how to treat it. I do, however. Get a bad reaction about once a year where I get an attack that is like the worst flu I have eve had. I didn’t know it was Celiacs related until I read about another womans same experience. She would end up in the hospital because she got so sick. Yikes!

  2. I’ve never been diagnosed with any gluten intolerances or allergies. However, when my wife was diagnosed with a gluten allergy and leaky gut last winter I gave it up. Half to make things easier around the house, half because of the personal research I did after her diagnosis. And I will tell you, as time goes on and I become more and more vigilant about it, I feel it more and more when it creeps in.

    Attending a game for the local NHL team last week, I decided to grab a beer. For the rest of the night, I paid for it. Itchy skin and my insides feeling like I was blowing up like a Thanksgiving parade balloon. One beer!! I didn’t feel right for two days.

    I didn’t have any magic fixes, but I will definitely be trying yours next time. Can’t imagine how people like yourself who are especially sensitive to it feel!

    1. Hi Joe! Isn’t it amazing what the body knows is/is not supposed to be there? How is your wife feeling? I also have leaky gut. And that is hard enough in itself. I hope some of my ideas help you the next time you are feeling lowsy!

    1. Hi Tera! Yes, you definitely have all the classic Celiac symptoms. How often do you think you get glutenized? I hope you are able to recover as quickly as I am. I know the pain – it’s not fun, at all! Thanks for sharing. I love hearing about what others do and how they know!

  3. Hi
    I am getting over a gluten attack Drink lots of water and back to simple plain food Boiled tatters plain steamed rice etc. However this type of attack in new for me major stomach pains, throwing up, (feels like pure stomach acid) burning sensations. Dr gave me maxalon to stop throwing up tummy slowly settling. I am also allergic to Milk(lactose intolerant including milk protiens), peanuts, shell fish(iodine),bell peppers(capsicium), and yeast. Makes food a liitle less interesting.
    Thanks for your blog it is interesting.
    cheers Karen

    1. Oh Karen…I can totally relate to multiple intolerance! Sometimes people joke that I should live in a bubble:) If you have many digestive problems, stay tuned! My blog is being re-launched with a complete digestive focus. Hence: eat. play. love. all dress sizes welcome. New URL (agutsygirl.com). All my best!

    2. It has been pretty much surmised that I have gluten intolerance if not outright food allergies. My reactions are especially bad whereas gluten or wheat products are concerned and this has been the case for many years but it was only recently that I and some doctors began putting 2 and 2 together.
      Out of misery, I chose to begin eliminating gluten from my diet and things did improve; but now if I eat even the slightest amount of a gluten product (like the communion bread I ate at church Sunday) in less than a day I will get so sick I am almost ready to opt for voluntary euthanasia (that is a joke of course-but just describing my level of suffering). And I knew better than to eat that-but I don’t get into the doctor for a month so it is hard to know what to eat and what not to eat because it is possible I have other food allergies/intolerances as well. But, I will give up any offending substance no matter how tasty it is because I am not a glutton for punishment and pain.

  4. I ate dinner at a Mexican restaurant last night — I thought I chose safe foods but something went awry. I had the worst stomach cramps that came in waves and subsided after about two hours. No more Mexican restaurants in my life — One possibility, I think, might be that the restaurant added MSG and that exacerbated what ever gluten there was. The longer I am gluten free the worse these accidental ingestion times are.

    1. It’s so hard, Paula! I was glutenized at a Mexican restaurant once, too. Last time I will eat there…it was also an upscale Mexican restaurant. I’m sorry for your pain!

    2. MSG or anything containing it is another “no no” for me; Last year, I had been eating take out from a nationally based pizza chain over the course of 3-4 days; it had always made me sick to a degree, but this time it literally rocked my world. I think it had a cumulative effect along with everything else glutened in my diet and I just about come close to tipping myself over the edge. I don’t know what hit me worse the gluten or the MSG but I stayed deathly sick for months and to this day I am still recovering. The only good thing that came out of it was that it prompted me to go and get help to find out what the problem was. I am still a “newbie” when it comes to living with celiac/gluten and food intolerance and have a ways t go but I have learned a lot and have done many things myself to alleviate problems until i get into the doctors this month for them to help me professionally.

  5. hi there i am a in the midst of finding any info that may help my daughter. she is 9 and has been dealing on an off for months with a bad stomach. it flares up out of nowhere and it doubles her over. this past 3 week she seemed to have the flu and as usual i just let it take its course. she slowly started to get well but then as i thought she was feeling well enough to go back to school started all over again( with in a 48 hr period) she went from being fine to “again” being doubled over. I am waiting to get her into her dr and in the meantime i am wondering if she is celiac, her father was as a child, and this past week she went with out gluten products ( well very minimal) and didnt complain about her stomach. then on a sleepover she aint a bagel and pizza and go figure that night she was screaming in pain. these flare up seem to be lasting anywhere from 15 min to an hour. then she feels completely fine and outta the blue the pain happens all over. as the happen they seem to be less intense .just wondering if anyone has any tips of any sort of a remedy. she is in agony when these flair ups start.

    1. Hi Erin! My heart breaks for you to watch your daughter struggle, and also for all that your daughter is struggling with. I will reach out with an email. xo

    2. Hi Erin! Sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope she’s doing better by now. I saw your comment about her father having celiac “as a child” — HUGE red flag. Doctors used to believe celiac was something children could grow out of, but that’s absolutely not the case. Having a patent with celiac is a risk factor.

  6. Watch out for mayonaise. Eat it ONLY if it absolutely promises it’s gluten free. As said above, having been GF for 2 yrs, the symptoms were awful. Hits me first like bad flu, skin crawls, fingers -toes numb and then the shakes, weak legs. Go into panic attack mode and have to breathe thru each ‘scream’ from my brain. The intestinal doesn’t hit until about 8 hrs later and then WHAM! I’m doing the hot, soaking baths, lots of water, TULSI tea to keep me calm and my vit D. But the headache, panic attacks and moments of intense weakness will persist for as much as a week afterward.
    The TULSI tea is a blessing — you can even munch on a bit of the leaves if necessary.

  7. My son is gluten intolerant and ended up in the hospital ICU. No one knew what was wrong with him. When he got home the pressure, bloating sensation and headaches, and anxious feelings along with bad tummy continued until we took away everything. He ate unsweetened applesauce, white rice, black tea and oatmeal for a week. No dairy and no gluten. He felt better after three days. We added back milk, he was still OK. As soon as bread was added, he was sick within a half hour. Docs don’t always diagnose this allergy. Do your own research. A Gluten web site is great. Just search gluten allergy for info. Good Luck All.

  8. TU for the 6 things. I was already doing three of them, and it’s helpful to hear about Smooth Move. My “attacks” always seem to happen if I have eaten out or, in one case, started a new supplement. I associate them with gluten, but it could also be yeast, msg, or something else I haven’t yet identified. Symptoms include a feeling of being raked from the inside, through stomach and gut; wd and varying stools; blurry vision; headaches; fatigue; mental confusion; joint pain; and – get this – depression and/or anxiety. I used to have a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, but those symptoms cleared when I stopped gluten, and recur when I get into gluten accidentally. I have wondered if my reactions intensify the longer I’m off the stuff. But I also notice that all the rest of the time I have more energy and joie de vivre, so maybe it’s a contrast thing that makes it seem worse. Word of advice for the pie-eater: I don’t ever eat the topping out of a gluten shell. I get very sick if I do. And thanks for the caution regarding mayo.

  9. Anyone else get the chills from glutin? I was doing much better until eating Thai last night and now I am in bed with all the covers I can find

  10. I have been GF for 2-1/2 years after MANY years of mis-diagnosed everything. I rarely glutenize myself, but once in a while I get a craving for PB & J on real bread or thanksgiving dinner (moms stuffing). It is NEVER worth it! I accidentally glutenized myself last night with beer…. uggghhhh. I took a probiotic (bio-K plus) and am hoping that helps. I have never been able to find a suitable method of pain relief. I havent tried the laxative tea mentioned above though. My symptoms are similar to those posted: severe stomach pains (not intestinal pains…. true stomach upper abdomen pains), bloating gas, feeling very lethargic, similar to flu like feeling… general overall blah with a side order of pain. Not to mention anxiety in my chest, foggy-ness, and “feeling raked from the insides” as mentioned above. That is a great way to put it. Celiacs/gluten intolerance is awful! And the more I read and learn about it the more I try to inform and teach my family and friends that wheat gluten is NOT GOOD FOR ANYONE… not just diagnosed people or people who have noticeable symptoms. wheat gluten inflames everything in everyone whether you know it or not. Anyway, thanks for this post. I will try the tea….. I feel awful right now 🙁

  11. I have been trying to explain these “attacks” to the multiple doctors I have seen in the past 3 years. I keep getting told I have an anxiety disorder and arthritis and this and that. I have come to the conclusion I need to eliminate gluten from my diet and see how I feel then. The fatigue is almost unbearable and I am willing to do anything to change this. Any tips will help!!

  12. I am not diagnosed coeliac as of yet but my villi are partically flattered making me go to the bathroom multiple times and afterwards, stomach cramps.
    i always drink water and lie in bed to read, this takes my mind of the pain and gurgling of the stomach. It calms down after a while, but these are my tips!! x

  13. I am VERY new to being gluten free. Only been 1 month for me. I’ve always had a weak stomach and have been lactose intolerant my whole life. I got salmonella poisoning 3 months ago and never felt like I recovered. Was having neurological symptoms and felt as if my nervous system and heart was thrown off. I did have low pottasium from malabsorption and am on a potassium prescription. Didnt have a lot of stomach issues after the salmonella passed, just constipation. I went to a cardiologist, he did an ultrasound of my heart, heart is great. Saw a neurologist and he is the one that suggested gluten intolerance. I immediately went off gluten. He did some tests and said everything was normal in my brain except for some inflammation in my brain, he feels it is from the gluten. I go back to see him in 2 weeks. My question is, has anyone experienced neurological symptoms? My symptoms are: extreme pressure in head, dizzy, nausea, left side of body is weak, extremem motion sickness, I feel as if I am drunk all the time, fatigue.. Just an overall feeling of being unwell. When should this pass? It has been a month since I have had gluten and although I do feel a little better I am still not doing well, can not live my normal life. I recently eliminated corn and rice from my diet in case that is hindering me from completely healing.

    1. Hi Joyanne
      I have a very recently discovered intolerance to gluten too.

      My first serious symptoms were that I was completely ‘knocked out’. It was like extreme jet lag and I just had to sleep wherever I was. After waking I’d feel ‘buzzy’ in the head, almost high and a definite feeling of vertigo. This would all start 20 minutes after eating something containing gluten.

      I cut it out and felt a lot better after two days. I then had to have the blood test for gluten antibodies so had to eat it again. It was AWFUL. I’m not coeliac but I know that gluten is the cause.

      Have been gluten-free for a week again now and energy came back, felt great etc etc. Today my hubby made a lovely home-made Chinese dish which I, without thinking, ate. The soy sauce had gluten in it and the symptoms were stronger than ever.

      Thanks for writing this article, Sarah, it’s the first one I’ve found that has neatly described my symptoms and what to do if I accidentally consume gluten.

      1. Hi Rowena!
        I am *so* happy you found my post and my blog in general. Hang in there….the road to healing is long, but once you feel good and know all the “tricks,” you’re quality of life will improve like you never knew it could. All my best! xo

  14. I was diagnosed with Celiac about 10 months ago and have been on a gluten free diet since. I have lived the last 10 years or more with ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and GERD. I never felt 100% and couldn’t gain weight at all. I was 135 lbs upon diagnosis and since going gf I am only 110 lbs now and 5’9″. I feel weak all the time and don’t know how to gain more weight on a gluten free diet since the options are all limited and low in calories. I try to add gf bread and cookies to my diet whenever I am able but that doesn’t seem to help. Needless to say I went to breakfast the other day and only ordered eggs because they said they didn’t add anything to them, and now I’m missing a huge meeting at work because apparently I was glutened. When I get glutened I feel it within about 10 minutes, I start to sweat and immediately need to go the restroom. I wanted to make myself throw up so bad to get it all out of my system, but couldn’t do it at Walmart, which is where I spent the next hour afraid to get in the car so I could be near a bathroom. I have only had a few gluten attacks from accidental ingestion and become useless for days to follow. I know I have to eat but just can’t force food down, I understood when someone said I almost prefer to be euthanized at this point. Is this what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life?

    1. Hi Kelly! I’m so sorry….I would say that part of the reason you probably are not seeing relief yet is because “gluten-free” products (not ingredients) are highly processed. You will need to heal your gut before you really start feeling better. I am so sorry for your pain. Hang in there.

  15. Hi there, not that it ever makes me happy to hear of people in any sort of discomfort but I am so glad I found this. I was diagnosed about 8 months ago with a gluten sensitivity (celiac blood tests came back negative and I wasn’t cool with the scope they wanted to do). I had been very sick off an on my whole life and no one could figure out what was actually wrong. There are so many symptoms I get. AND I see I am not alone. Since being gluten free, I have improved but am still quite sick a lot of the time. I have lost 25 pounds so am now only 100 pounds :(. I believe that I also have leaky gut from all of this and that is slowing my recovery. I am mostly sick in the mornings but recently have got to the point where I react a lot sooner. I just found out this morning that the yogurt I thought was gluten free actually isn’t and all afternoon since eating it, I feel awful, many of the symptoms everyone else has listed here. It makes me feel better to know that I am not the only one going though this, though I don’t wish it on anyone! Its just makes me feel more confidant in my diagnosis I guess.
    My words to everyone who has any discomfort, please try to stay positive and just stick with the altered diet. I tend to get really down when I have my problems and that just doesn’t help at all!
    I wish you all, and myself, a quick and speedy recovery from any damage done and best of health for your futures. 🙂

    1. Hi Meg! Thanks for stopping by. p.s. Try removing the yogurt for good for awhile, OR try to find some raw dairy yogurt or Kefir. Good luck to you. Happy healing.

  16. I too get chills, fatigue, stomach cramps (and all the rest)… and I think depression as well. I’m newly diagnosed, and all of my symptoms are much, much worse since I cut it out a couple of months ago, from accidental ingestion. I find the chills and fatigue somehow worse than anything… but knowing that I’m not alone with my symptoms somehow takes the anxiety out of the equation (i.e. I’m not dying, yeah!). Thanks to everyone for sharing… I’m currently recovering from a mystery contamination… so off to get a glass of water and more rest! The other symptom is “brain fog”… yikes.

  17. Well after being gluten free for 3 months (and very sick for 4 1/2 months) I’m still not better. I am also dairy and soy free. I eat a very clean, stricked organic diet. No legumes or rice, certain veggies and fruits, lean meats and poultry. Hot tea and water. I make everything from home. Haven’t even been to a restaurant in 3 months. None of this helped my symptoms. And I’m still extremely malnutritioned. Has anyone been tested for sibo? I have the symptoms of sibo to a tee. I just made an appt at cedar sinai to have the breath test done for sibo (not many drs or hospitals run this test). Hoping for an answer and a recovery.

        1. I do! I finished the 21 day program 1 1/2 months ago and unfortunately it only helped very slightly. And I still stick to a diet almost exactly like the 21 day, except I eat egg whites for extra protein (I’ve lost almost 20lbs and am trying to gain weight).

          1. Do you drink a lot of broth? How about supplements? You should get tested for SIBO (and everything else while you are at it).

  18. I couldn’t reply to your last reply… But yes I do broth, tons of supplements (multi vitamins, b, c, d, digestive enzymes, glutamine, ashgwhanda, turmeric, and I’m on potassium too bc my potassium has fallen dangerously low 4 times) I stopped probiotics last week because I learned from a dr probiotics can worsen the bacteria level in sibo.

    1. yes, probiotics can. I think you need to know for sure if SIBO is what the problem is. I’d maybe stop the ashgwhanda, too for now.

  19. I’m glutenized at the moment. Is the first time it happens and it feels horrible!

    I just finished a short version of the elimination diet and yesterday I went ahead and ate bread, this was going to be the first food I reintroduce to my diet.

    Good Lord! My muscles hurt, my joints hurt, I have chills, the whole nine yards.

    I did the elimination diet because I had my suspicion that gluten was becoming an issue and now here I am.

    Thank you for posting this. Gathering all the energy I could I want to the kitchen for a bottle of water, a banana and warm water with lemon.

    I’ve been sleeping all morning.

    God bless!!

  20. I have been celiac for 7 years. Each episode is different. I get diarreha or constipation. Joint pain, chills, fatigue, naueaus/vomiting, stomach pain and the rash (DH) on the bottom of my feet and between my fingers. When this happens i lock my diet down and do not eat out. It can take 3 days to two weeks to get over an episode depending on the sevarity of the reaction.

  21. I have these symptoms too. Flu like, bad bloating,achey joints and abdominal pain that lasts forever. I want to feel better

    1. Hi Tommy. Hope you feel better…if you want it badly enough, you’ll do the things you need to to help yourself get better.

  22. I’m currently in bed with a gluten attack….been gluten free for nearly 8 years and have been soooo careful. But in a rush I took a sip of the smoothie I was making my 2 yr old before remembering I had loaded it with Oat milk as she has a dairy intolerance! Arrgggghh it was too late to do anything. I thought maybe, just maybe I would be okay, but sure thing within a couple if hours I started feeling anxious, sharp stomach pains, bloated and incredibly sore and just completely fatigued. And what’s worse is I even have a child free date night with my husband and another couple tonight and I can hardly stomach anything without it feeling like its burning!! I’m getting by with lots of water, I had to take some strong pain killers to manage to keep minding my kids, and just laid down while the kids had quiet time….hopefully I can still enjoy my evening!

  23. Hi there all. I have been in and out of doctors for 15 years. I have undergone many surgeries and several investigative procedures. It was not until two months ago that my doctor tested my blood for celiac disease. While waiting for my results over the next few days, I did research on it and decided that it wasn’t such a bad diagnosis. Well my tests were positive. Now after struggling to adhere to my new life, I have been glutened several times. I am still learning. I have a hubby and two little girls. Gluten free is not easy. I was glutened two days ago and the symptoms are worse everyday. I am so bloated that I look 6mo pregnant (no joke and I had a hyst so I can’t be). The pain is overwhelming. Anything I eat comes back up. I am trying ginger and turmeric teas. They haven’t made much of a difference. Does anyone have any sound avice for me?

  24. I started having trouble last spring and blood tests came back borderline, had a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy which showed signs of celiac, but biopsy was negative.

    I’ve been gluten free for about 9 months now, and in the midst of a pretty severe gluten attack. I have no idea what the culprit was this time, it is maddening.

    I ended up with terrible diarrhea followed by cramping, fatigue, cold sweats, chills, feverish, the whole thing. The fatigue has really set in, and I am in SLOW MOTION. The attacks do seem to get worse over time. I had been doing really well for the last several months with almost no symptoms.

    The fatigue can last for days, and usually end up having to nap during the day, which is very un-like me.

    Thanks for your great blog, and everyone’s support!

  25. I’m a 34 year old female. I was diagnosed with celiac almost 2 years ago after suffering from the classic symptoms for years. I have since been diagnosed with severe osteopenia from years of not absorbing vital nutrients. I follow a strict and balanced gluten free diet. My doctor has only recommended that I supplement with vitamin D.

    One week ago I began experiencing tingling and twitching along the left side of my face which spread down the entire left side if my body. I have slight vision changes as well as severe mental fog. I have heart palpitations. I went to the ER two days after the onset of my symptoms and blood work, ECG and CT scan all came back clear. I was referred for more testing. I am very afraid of being diagnosed with MS or something like that. My world has been turned upside down since these symptoms appeared.

    Please help by sharing similar stories if anyone else with celiac has gone through this!!! Could all of this be caused by being glutinated?

  26. I have been gluten free for a year and I am very careful but had a mishap. I ate a bowl of oatmeal (gluten free or as I thought) like I do every morning but now can’t get out of Bed. I feel like I am going to be sick and the pain in my right side is so bad I can’t move. I have the chills/ a fever. I was fine this morning and all of a sudden. This is the first time it has been like this. Can someone give me some advice of what to do? I am feeling helpless

  27. Hi Sarah,
    I wanted to thank you for this blog. It has provided me a great deal of information on gluten.
    I’m very new at all this, and keep having gluten attacks at least once or twice a month now.
    Learning foods I can and can’t have have been challenging. The more gluten I take out and a small mistake I put in; can put me on my couch for a day.
    I have self diagnosed myself, after nights of no sleep and numerous trips to the restroom I did some research. I feel 100% Better with no gluten. No more waking in the morning and feeling like when I would walk my ankles wont give out ( I had no idea this was apart of gluten). Motion sickness is gone. I still have severe allergies.
    I’m going to look more into your book. Thank you again!

    1. Hey Sam! Thank you so much. I am so glad to be able to help you. It’s a huge learning curve, but once you learn it and feel better, your life will change forever. All my best….

  28. I think I have been gluten poisoned. I have been enjoying all the health benefits of a gluten,wheat,dairy,msg & sugar free eating plan for only 3 weeks. The first time I had a ‘naughty’ day and ate a donut and a box of chocolates someone gave me at work on Thursday has felt like ‘death by chocolate’. Friday, I don’t know how I completed a day’s work. I was doubled over in pain all day, bloated to the point that my newly slim stomach looked pregnant, hard and distended. Initially I had gas as we’ll but even that seems to be stuck now. I went to the toilet around 6 times that day but only small compressed amounts like my bowel was restricted. By Friday night I started to worry I had an intestinal or bowel obstruction and almost went to the hospital. I thought It would pass through by Saturday but I awoke with the same stomach pain AND a migraine that nearly had me vomiting. Slept all day on and off and could only stomach water. Bowel movements stopped after 2 bouts of diarrhoea that afternoon. By dinner I felt hungry but scared to eat, so I had a shake from the plan made with berries & almond milk, coconut water, chia seeds & flax oil. And a. Nibble on some bacon hubby had cooked. All food seems to be blocked now… Had more stomach pain in the middle of the night and have slept most of Sunday away. Several times I have wished I’d gone to hospital either Friday night when it was severe or during bouts on Saturday. I plan to go to the doctor tomorrow which is Monday, but I don’t know how to explain that I think I’ve been poisoned by foods I used to eat all the time without too many issues! After reading the symptoms others have experienced from glutenization, I’m not in such a hurry to rush to the hospital. It sounds exactly the same. I will tough it out and see the doctor tomorrow. Surely day 4 will see some improvement??

      1. No I didn’t get the e-book but I will look for it when I get home today. Just waiting for Doctor to open so I can try and get an appointment. Stomach slightly better but head is fuzzy, I’m a bit wonky and my eyes feel blurry. Just don’t feel right and this is day 4 since my gluten feast on Thursday that started this whole thing. Best to get checked I think.
