It has been a few months now and I have been so careful. My darling hubby made me a gf pizza (we thought) two nights ago and the morning after I ate it I had terrible tummy cramps the first half of the day and then had a headache for most of the rest of the day.
We narrowed the culprit down to some gherkin relish he used, that had a small amount of vinegar made from barley. He knew to watch out for wheat and rye but didn't realise barley was a baddie as well. Big lesson learned as he had a very grumpy wife and last night instead of both of us eating the leftovers he had to cook another meal for me to replace it.
I had "saved" up calories for that pizza too! Oh well, these things happen. I have checked with all the packaging/manufacturers of the other things I ate that day and they seem fine.
Oh well at least I know what it feels like now! Tummy isn't totally happy again yet but nothing as bad as that morning! Ouch!
I had no idea that small an amount would do so much. Esp as I am not a diagnosed celiac - and my symptoms before were extreme tiredness and irregular bowels mostly - not tummy cramps and headaches LOL
Is that strange?
With God's help I can do this!
