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.
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....! patti

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.
I'm not going to go into my long Health history, but I was doing great , but I started working as a head cook at a small school and I have been getting sick again, extreme diarrhea gas ect, even though I haven't ate any gluten I do use flour in baked good ect. Can you get sick by inhaling and being around bread breaded meats ect.thanks so much
