I recently treated myself to a big old po'boy and waited for the inevitable gas. A little, but nothing more than I get when I eat brussel sprouts. A few months ago however, I had a three day party with some friends and ate pizza, pasta, etc., and drank much beer. I woke up on day four feeling pretty yucky and it wasn't a hangover.

    So maybe grain sensitivities are more like allergies than are positive stressors. IOW, instead of getting more immune from the exposure, we get less immune. Just a guess.
    I think you are right. It's not just one of something that gives me problems, it builds back up over time. But last night, after 1 day totally grain-free (in fact I ate very little, thanks to having no appetite from this cold), I was totally gas-free last evening and I assume into the night (I was sleeping the death-sleep of the happily drugged.). And, incidentally, my weight dropped about 3.5 lbs overnight, so the bloat is gone as well.

      Marthat, mine (from the party) went away pretty quickly also. Glad to hear your body was able to regroup so quickly.

          The OP will probably not like me for bringing up gross fart stories, but have you ever walked into an invisible gaseous anomaly in an empty grocery store aisle?!?! Blaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!

          My old man used to do this for sport - fart and run - and kinda stay within line-of-sight at the end of the aisles to watch the reaction of unsuspecting shoppers. Yeah, he never really had it going on in the classy person genre.

          But I understand. My daughter, who is now grain-free I might add, used to have farts that hung in the air like ground fog. Their staying power was tremendous. No more grains, no more toots. Moms are supposed to be able to handle their own kids stink, but she made me do the gag-ola a couple of times.
          Not to belabour this BUTT, ever swam in a Master's Swim Club --- and get stuck swimming behind someone in a lane who was full of gas? It's hard to describe but it's similar to eating someone's farts -- seriously -- worst thing ever!

            Laughing SO hard the kids are asking what is up from the other room!!! Wipes tears from eyes...

            Not nearly as good as yours, BUTT how about this... Walking up the stairs, and each and every step you take, even though your cheeks are clenched so tight that you can barely get the leg up the next tread, it goes pfftbrrrt, pfftbrrrt, pfftbrrrt...

              I was reading this forum this morning while in bed with hubby sleeping next to me. I was laughing so hard, and was trying my best to contain my laughter.....but to no avail. Hubby wakes up and says to me, "it must be about farts -- that's the only thing you laugh this hard at". (my hubby is a serious sort :-))

                I'll cop to being juvenile! It is actually good to hear that others have gas stories, too, though - along with the gas came pain and bloating for one of my progeny, and diarrhea for the other, so I am actually glad that doctors treat it as something to take seriously - at least our kids peds docs all do.

                And just because I really cannot help myself today - ever try to get rid of gas the socially acceptable way by running to the toilet, only to find that the particular throne you chose is actually a resonance chamber in disguise, and amplified the boom?!

                  Would that be similar to sitting on a Yoga Ball and letting one go? Try being discrete in a work out class when that happens....

                    Primal gas has been essentially non-existent for me. Recently I have done the potato hack for 3-4 days at a time. Noticeable increase in flatulence. Not enough to cause social issues, but definitely an increase.

                      Ohh, I can imagine the interesting auxiliary sounds that produces! You poor thing!

                      I wonder how long we can go on before we run out of true stories... My daughter used to be the class specialist at tooting in time with the counts as she did jumping jacks in gymnastics class. Just like walking up the stairs, it was jump-boop, one! Jump-boop, two... It got so bad that she would try to find excuses to get out of jumping jacks. Either that, or stand waaaay in back. Ever have a little kid ask you specifically for gas remedies from the drugstore?

                        We could probably take this thread into the thousands of pages. The bottom line is, if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at? Just hilarious thread that's taken years of my life due to my belly laughing!

                          Yup! Now all we have to do is find something that sets off your Serious Hubby!

                          There is an older kitchen accident thread that is also really good. You might give that a try. Stop by my journal sometime - it has been seriously nice trading war stories with you!

                              I'm laughing so hard that my side hurts. A few years ago when I was a vegan, my son and I ate a lentil dish, then went to the movies. I swear people got up and moved! That was the last time either of us ate lentils. I was do much fartier as a vegan. Steak and veggies, not a fart for years. December parties of sugar and grains are what had me start PB on New Years Day. I love how it makes me feel.
