Crazy stomach trouble - Gluten??

Hey paleo crowd!

I need some help here. A little background: Im a 5'9' male, 150 lbs'ish, and rather lean 8-10% BF. I eat a very strict paleo diet, except for the occasional 86% dark Chocolate. I'm very active, and follow the Outlaw crossfit training. ( aims for competitions ). And loving it.

Now here comes the crazy stomach part. Last saturday i did some ice cream ( Haagen Dazs with cheese cake, and some ben and jerry's ). Now I've done ice-cream before, and ice cream with gluten as well. And nothing like this has happened.

But.. This time... Sunday morning i started feeling nauseated after breakfast. Then preceded to not be hungry for 7 hours ( usually i eat every 4-5 hours ). Then getting the whole fever chills, and just being massively uncomfortable. Tried to eat when i got home, and then puked minutes later. ( Forced puking, not "spontaneous :d ). Anyways, the fever symptoms disappeared after the first night - But i have seriously struggled with eating, anything for 6 days. ( It's just gotten better today ). Every time i have tried eating i've got the "super filled up" felling. Other times id get serious stomach pains in a cramping like matter.

I can to some extend get some food down now ( I've resolve to eating greek yogurt ) But i'm suffering from dizziness, and i think i was fairly close to passing out while doing Cleans in the gym today..

My question is: Is this "Just" a Gluten exposure trying to kill me? And now i'm suffering the aftermath of eating 1/4 of what i normally do 6 days in a row? Or is this something more serious, a stomach virus? i'm at a loss.. I really want things to get back to normal!

Anyhelp is appreciated! ( Sorry for spelling mistakes, I'm danish ). Thanks in advance.

Neither is food poisoning

Sounds like a virus. Probably not the gluten.

You are probably suffering from food poisoning of some sort. Effects from eating gluten by gluten intolerant folks aren't normally THAT intense or long lasting, albeit everyone is different.

It's either a stomach flu or food poisoning. Load up on a multi-strain probiotic that contains at least 20 billion organism twice a day on an empty stomach....this should help a lot....give it another day or so, it should resolve.
