When I have a reaction I drink a large and I mean large quantity of water fairly quickly That usually helps me a tremendous amount. Also the next day if I haven't been taking my supplements I go right back to them. I have found l-glutamine helps me a tremondous amount. It is an amino acid that helps heal the gut I am told. Never thought of benedryl before...........

Barb I take the quercitin complex with bromelain everyday and Zyrtec every night. I did not think these were special or I would have listed them!

I have eaten yogurt or toast and or crackers. I try to get something that isn't gluten in my system and it seems to work most of the time. Also I take tums. Most of the time I am very lucky in that if I do have gluten I don't feel any effects. I may have an out break because I do have DH.

I would sure check with your DR.

wow i never would have thought to use something that causes you to eliminate it faster but it makes total sense!

I feel ok today just groggy and bloated..

I started taking the benedryl after this client of mine told me of her daughter's allergy to soy and thats what she did to relieve her symptoms. I honestly dont know if the benedryl does anything because I usually fall asleep before i feel better but at least i dont have to deal with the pain while awake.

im going to try some of the things you guys suggested!

I also drink ginger tea and that helps with the stomach and also the smooth moves works great on getting stuff out.

I've never tried the benadryl. Not sure if that would help me. I definitely try to speed things up though (like everyone else who posted). However, I do it by making a green drink of blendered parsley, lettuce, carrots, celery and water. I also increase my intake of either salads or soups with greens and whole grains (depending on the weather/season).

I'm not sure if this would help you, but my acupuncturist recommended marshmallow root years ago for unhappy gut moments. I always take that for a few days until things settle down. I took it daily for at least the first year after I went GF.

Hope you start feeling better soon!

There are some ideas. I usually also take a Smooth Move tea to get things out of there more quickly. I tend to get swelling and then it stays in there too long, wreaking havoc!

Ditto here on the NOT medical advice....but I do an enema to get it out ASAP. That usually helps somewhat. I have the same day after effects. Awful.

5'9", goal weight is really to be a size 6. I'm thinking that may be about 130 lbs.

This is NOT medical advice so please check with your doctor -
I have resorted to taking Milk of Magnesia to help things go through my system with a little more speed at times. Does a heating pad help your stomach cramps at all? It wouldn't be convenient to use at work but possibly at home.

I am having a reaction right now as I type this. I just took benedryl so im halfway to lala land now, but im still in so much pain! im not sure exactly what caused it, because I didnt eat anything containing gluten, but i never know at my house im the only one with CD so cross contamination happens occasionally. what do you do when youre having a reaction?

for me if I dont take benedryl right as its coming on i have excrutiating pain in my abdomen for a good three hours and then I awake the next day as though I went on an all night drinking binge.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions because when Im at work im not able to take benedryl because it knocks me out!
