Do other people feel like they are getting worse? I cut out gluten a few weeks back and now when I come in contact with it, I can tell my body goes crazy. I don’t really think that I was getting worse, so I decided upon the following:
My body had been so overwhelmed that it was constantly reacting to gluten. I felt awful, but there was nothing else, so it was an uncomfortable normal. Now, part of the time I am actually feeling better. My body is well enough to begin to react. I feel it!
Listen to your body. Now just why did I feel glutened after dinner last night?
Diane I used to feel like that all the time. Now (two years later) it only happens to me once in awhile, maybe once a month. For me a lot of it was due to leaky gut and having food reactions to many things I didn’t know about. But if you’re not in a gluten free kitchen I would seriously consider contamination as a possibility.
Have been trying hard to stay Gluten and grain free since discovering my GS problem 7 months ago. After 45 years of bad gut problems and night time brain/sleep problems I immediately felt great. It now appears that the longer I’ve stayed away from purposeful gluten,etc. that I am much more sensitive to “any” amount of accidental exposure. At first I could usually easily pinpoint the culprit in my food but now it’s getting harder to figure out what I did wrong. I think there are some items that are usually safe that may not “always” be safe and can have contamination, regardless of how many times eaten before without problems? You wouldn’t expect something like a package of pure hashbrown potato patties to be a problem but I discovered a while back that they dust them with flour to keep them from sticking together after freezing? So far I seem to be unable to take any gluten not getting where I can accidentally get a little without symptoms and the worst is that I can have sleeptime anxiety/fog without any gut symptoms at all. Maybe that’s good because it makes me try harder to not cheat and slip back into bad eating habits.
