I binged on bread the other day. TWO days later I noticed a hive on my abdomen! I have a wheat sensitivity, and it can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days for the full effects to be known. I've read that it can take up to seven days for all of it to clear, too.

Almost the same thing happens to me and that makes me less of wanting one again.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Unfortunately yes, it could be the cookie! I have similar symptoms with gluten: bloating, pain, slow motility and nausea. I usually have a pretty quick reaction if I accidently get even a miniscule amount gluten in something, but I do think it is possible for some to have a more delayed response. Personally, I carefully avoid it to the best of my ability as the discomfort is not worth it! Best of luck to you.

I am wondering if this is normal for anyone else? I have been GF for about a year. Undiagnosed condition. I quit because of severe stomach flu like symptoms. I am glad to say i have had no more of that since going GF. I allowed myself to have a cookie on Tuesday and by Thursday I am bloated and sluggish bowels. Oh am more aches and pains in joint's. So today some better so far! Could it be the one lousy cookie? It wasn't even very good. What do you guy's think?
