There has been a stomach...thing...going around where I live. If this is short-lived, it could be a virus/cold of some type.

I don't have any insight into the gluten issue, but I know that too much wheat flour hanging in the air used to be a big health hazard for commercial bakers. It can be very bad for your lungs. While you should probably check with your doctor about the allergy issue, wearing a mask when you work with flour might not be a bad idea.

I'll agree with seeing your doc, but yes if you have celiac or a high gluten sensitivity that inhaling gluten can make you ill (its not uncommon unfortunately - drywall has wheat in it [or some brands do] that in some cases those home owners have had to leave their home while its being dun and make sure that things get cleaned up because of the wheat dust in the drywall causing issues).

At any rate you do need to get things checked out by your doctor to make sure nothing is harming you internally.

It may be possible if you suffer from celiac spru disease and can not tolerate any gluten. This is something to ask your doctor.

My response as a person who needs to avoid gluten is to remember that cross contamination can and does occur in food prep areas where gluten ingredients are used.

So if you are a gluten free eater, that is a good question to ask your doctor about thinking that you are inhaling it and wondering if that is making you sick.

People on a message board (including me) are not qualified to answer your questions and need to be careful about making suggestions beyond talking to your health care team.

Wishing you the best.

Debbie...I would echo going to your Doctor.

One other possibility besides allergy to consider is that there are some very heavy hitting little virus's out & about this winter.... (even my doctor ended up with one!) not just the influenza virus.....

Hope your doctor can help you recover and get back to feeling good again....!

As someone who comes from an allergy-stricken family, I also suggest that you talk with your Dr. It is something that our members aren't qualified to give you advice about.

Good luck,
Kris

This is a question for your allergist and other doctors. If you have an extreme allergy, you can get sick from inhaling the allergen-- that's why they stopped serving peanuts on airplanes. But it's also VERY common to have digestive upsets as a result of stress when you change jobs, even if you don't think you're stressed by the change.

Go to your doctor. They can do some tests to try to tell whether your symptoms are a gluten reaction, and if it is, you want your doctor to know how severe your allergy has become.
