I am a newly-diagnosed celiac patient (20 days, to be exact), and have been following a strict gluten-free diet since the day of diagnosis. Of course, I am still in the learning phase of this new diet/lifestyle; however, I have worked closely with my doctor and a registered dietitian regarding what I can/cannot eat, etc. Since starting the diet I have felt quite a bit better; but, the other night I was awoken from sleep with violent vomiting and diarrheoa that lasted for approximately 5 hours. It was awful, yet familiar. Before I was diagnosed, I experienced a very similar incident about 10 minutes after eating a BBQ dinner. But...here's the thing. I am not sure what caused this reaction. I have taken the mentality that if I am not sure about something, then I don't eat it. That day, the only thing that I can think of that may have caused this reaction is Orville Redenbacher's All Natural popcorn -- however, I had previously eaten it without incident AND was told by the dietitian that this was a gluten-free snack. I am starting to get very discouraged. I've been looking for information on the Internet and have called my doctor this morning, but am not finding any information as to whether this is a "normal" reaction OR if there is some other underlying issue with my GI system. Once again, I am still trying to figure out my sensitivity level, etc., but cannot figure out what the problem is this time.
Any help would be great! Thanks!
