Coeliacs disease- glutened- or stomach bug after eating out?

I have had coeliacs for many years now. I went out for breakfast yesterday and ordered scrambled eggs. The restaurant caters for gluten free and I’ve eaten there before. The eggs come on toast. I asked if the bread was definitely gluten free and they assured me it was. I had also overheard the waitress checking with the chief that they had gluten free available after I ordered.

I have been up all night with sickness and severe stomach cramps. Can’t even keep water down and I’m 18 weeks pregnant.

I thought initially it was food poisoning or a stomach bug. I’m now wondering if the bread was in fact gluten free.

Anyone with coeliacs had a similar reaction after being glutened or is it more likely to be a sickness bug/ food poisoning from the eggs? I had very little to eat after as I didn’t feel great. Sickness didn’t start until 12 hours later though.

Thank you

As pp said, you'll likely never know, but if it helps, I am also coeliac and got norovirus at 18 weeks.

I was so badly sick I covered the bathroom and then slipped over in it, banging my pregnant belly on the bath! I went to the antenatal unit to get checked and they just said to ride it out!

Usually you can tell as GF bread doesn't toast like normal bread does. It usually tastes shite too Wink

I agree with the poster above. I know when it isn’t gluten free as it tastes crap. What did it taste like?

It could be cross contamination from butter if they use the same butter on gluten toast?

Thanks everyone. Riding it out still and hoping it will stop soon!!

on reflection the bread tasted nice! Normally I compare to family and what they have ordered but I was on my own. The waitress told me it was warburtons gluten free and I did think at the time they do a nice tiger loaf so it must be part of that range!!

the other times I’ve been glutened is from minimal food never (potentially) 2 slices of toast.

I think it’s probably more likely some kind of stomach bug!!
