You know, I had mysterious episodes alot the first 6 months, and just am having one now, the first since about July. I was talking to someone at work with Celiac and she also correlates other things with the attacks...lack of sleep, too much stress or exertion, etc. Something I have been thinking about since the only thing I had that could have done it was Garam Masala from a bulk food department. I ate it before with no problem so maybe other factors ARE at work. Just something to ponder. Mine may have been overtraining and stress as well.
It took me months before I stopped having mysterious episodes. When I first went gluten free my doctor told me to avoid dairy. Not because I have an actually problem with it but because it can be hard to digest and since the intestines are all ready weak it can cause similar symptoms.
I, too, am finding that I have what I call relapses... I'll be feeling good - almost back to normal - and then wham! back to square 0. Two things I have found that bother me are: 1. milk... I can USUALLY tolerate very small doses and lower-fat versions (cheese is out, cottage cheese okay) 2. "natural flavoring" - it's about a 50/50 chance that I'll react somehow when having this ingredient, so I avoid it completely now
I agree. Keep track and have patience! We'll get it figured out eventually.

I wonder if you might not have a problem with fructose... pears, berries, onions/ garlic (could be in the salad dressing & on the pizza), and brown rice (I'm guessing the pizza crust used brown rice flour) all have fructose in them ( and there are many other foods that have fructose in them). I myself am trying to figure out problems I may have problems w/ fructose.
unfortunately, i don't have any good links to share for info, but doing an internet search should help you get some info on fructose intolerance.
Hope you get feeling better... and you can figure out what caused the problem (and that it isn't fructose!)

Thanks, everyone. I was so excited thinking the gluten was what had been contributing to me feeling so bad. It's been pretty easy (so far) for me to give up. If that's not it, that would mean the mystery would continue and I am so ready to feel better.
The Fit Fruit and Veggie wash has both glycerol (an alcohol) and oleic acid as part of the ingredients. Both of these "can" upset your stomach and/or cause gas. Changes are that you are probably still adjusting to the GF diet.... Make note of what you ate the last day or two... sometimes its a delayed reaction. OR....there may be some things that you don't tolerate well. If you eat Glutino's pizza again and the same thing happens...well, take that one off the table! Keep at it, you'll find the foods that make you feel well!

I've been GF for a few days and was just telling my daughter this a.m. how amazing it is to not have the pain, gas, cramping etc. Then after lunch, it was all back! My lunch was a glutino pizza (box said gluten free) a salad with a pear and blueberries and Annie's Naturals dressing (bottle said gf). I did use Fit fruit and veggie wash on the pear and berries. Could that have been the culprit? Any ideas?? I do NOT want to feel that way anymore!
