Hi! I'm new to the board and haven't really browsed all that much yet. This may have been answered already but as someone who has know about their Celiac for a little over a year, I'm pretty adjusted to my diet. The other night I slipped up at a restaurant without knowing (Thurs night) and last night into today (sun, mon) I've had a terrible stomach ache, frequent bowels, etc. Does anyone else out there take a few days after ingesting gluten to show symptoms? Is this normal?

Thanks! Can't wait to start chatting with my fellow Celiacs!

Hello and welcome..yes this is quite normal to take a few days..being very sensitive myself its only a matter of hours before i react to ingesting..

my daughter she gets itchy eyes and swelling if she comes even in contact with it yes you are normal in reaction..

my advice always ask if your meal is gluten free,i do and also i ask what products do they use to make gf/wf.of course very dipolmatic as to not anger them.and usually i get a good reaction..cheers Lynne
