I cut out gluten 10 months ago and went full Paleo (well, Primal, as I do eat goat and sheep dairy on occasion) 9 months ago. I haven't knowingly touched gluten since then, though I suspect I've had the odd exposure here and there (soy sauce at sushi restaurants, that sort of thing).
Well on Sunday night I knowingly ate wheat - a fair amount (I won't go into what I had as I don't want to be 'yelled' at!!), but probably the equivalent amount to, say, 2 large slices of pizza. I knew what I was doing but it seemed worthwhile at the time. I figured I'd have some diarrhea when I got home and then move on.
Well, it's Thursday night, so 4 full days later, and my stomach is DESTROYED. I've been up in the night every night with stomach cramps, diarrhea, have been hugely bloated (feels like severe menstrual cramps but it's definitely not and I cured my cramps when I went paleo anyways), my weight is up and not coming back down as it usually does after a small (non-gluten) cheat. I couldn't even pick my daughter up from daycare today, I was keeled over in pain just before the daycare was closing and had to call my mom to get her.
I've been eating more or less normally - meat, fish, grilled veggies, coconut products and lots of them, lots of eggs, drinking lots of water, a little bit of almond milk, coconut milk.
My husband has said I need to see a doctor about this, but I suspect they'll just tell me to eat bland foods as they always used to when I called with persistent diarrhea (so then I'd eat lots of toast and the GI stuff wouldn't go away so they'd tell me to eat more toast, etc.) before I went paleo.
Can you please advise me on how to heal my stomach? Is there stuff I should be eating or avoiding while I'm feeling like this? Is there a Paleo-friendly diet for situations like this? Similar to the mainstream bland food diet that involves lots of carbs and toast? Should I stop eating altogether (I'm hungry as usual)?
