I went to a wedding yesterday and ate lovely gf food but also ate some sugared almonds and other little sweeties. These are the only offending bites that I ate. During the night I had diarrhea, vomiting and extremely painful stomach cramps that lasted 12 hours. I still feel a bit rough and have not yet eaten today. My oesophagus feels very sore probably from the vomiting although GERD was always a key symptom for me. I don't know if anybody else was ill, but my family - who had the same food as me are fine. I have two questions. Firstly, one I have asked before but don't know if I have fully understood the answers and this is a different situation - how do you know if you have been glutened or have caught a bug? Secondly, if I have been glutened, does anybody know how long does it take to recover? I felt so so ill - even worse than before I was diagnosed. I have occasionally eaten gluten but have never reacted like this.
