CpBatchelor Posted February 26, 2014 Share Posted February 26, 2014 So.. Whole30 ended on 2/20... Wine was on 2/21 that went well... Grains on 2/24.. Kinda messed that day up. Had steel cut oats for Meal 1 which were technically gluten free... Well within 2 hrs felt horrible. Headache, body ache, ear hurt, stuffy, warmth/rash around my mouth... Meal 2 had sourdough roll from whole foods. No headache after but still did not feel well. Yesterday (2/23) felt better did not ache body wise, ear pain went away, no headache. Woowhoo... Today (2/24) woke up to a swollen left tonsil.. and a tonsil stone... They had gone away during my Whole30 which I was ecstatic about as I had battled them and the bad breath they caused for a while... My PCP always chocked it up to allergies of a viral bug going around... Upon discovering the tonsil stone and swollen tonsil this morning I scheduled an appointment with my PCP for 3/24 to discuss what I have discovered so far. I will do another attempt of oats before the appointment. However, to me it sounds weird that I am more sensitive to oats compared to gluten. It is also weird that my body reacted in a more extreme way than it ever had before. I ate 1/4 cup of dry steel cut oats in my overnight oatmeal 5 days a week, so yeah they were not dry by the time I ate them. And sometimes steel cut oatmeal on the weekend. So, is it normal for your body to have a more extreme reaction post whole30 since you had not consumed it for 30 day? Also, what is the best way to approach talking to a weary PCP? My appointment is not until 3/24 (yeah he only sees patients on Monday and Wed.. Reintro isnt 100% over until 17th). I have not been tested for food allergies/sensitivities before and am not sure the best way to have the right conversation? I would like to be tested for various food sensitives/allergies but I suspect insurance will not cover this without PCP approval. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
