I have celiac disease. I had been doing better overall for the past couple months. This last weekend my family and I went out of town and ate out quite a bit. Well, I got sick Saturday night with sudden diarrhea. Sorry to be graphic, but it was very yellow, greasy and had a strong odor. I ended up taking a total of 3 Imodium and it settled. Didn't feel well in the morning. Ate a little lunch and soon after had the awful diarrhea again with nausea. By this time we were on the road, which is such a nightmare! Had to take another 3 Imodium and Zofran. That was yesterday. Havent ate since. Just had another similar bowel movement, a bit more solid but nasty. It's Monday afternoon now. Feel yucky overall with muscle weakness as well. Have lost about 8 lbs since last Thursday. I have had 6 Imodium since Saturday night. Does this sound like a gluten response?

It would for me. I don't have celiac but am intolerant of gluten.

We went out a few weeks ago to a restaurant I've eaten at many times. For whatever reason, I ordered something new this time. They have quite a lot of GF items and so I asked was this item available GF. The guy said yes. I enjoyed it.

The next day I had diarrhea and felt like crap. For me the gluten reaction takes about 12 hours and I think that is exactly what happened to me.

Thanks for responding. I figured that's what this is. It's not quite the same as the food poisoning I had last month. Have no idea what it was I ate that was contaminated. My gut is settling some but still have not been able to eat. Now, my hip (which has issues with calcium mass) is killing me! So painful I can barely walk and my muscles feel extremely weak. I have a trip coming up and my anxiety is out of control worrying about being sick on the road. It's bad enough when I'm comfortable at my own home but on the road...I mean what do you do?? ugh.
