yogimom posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHi there, I'm hoping someone can help me or relate to what I'm going through. I seem to have several symptoms of gluten intolerance. They include IBS, gas, bloating, joint pains etc. I have found a definite connection to my eating certain foods and having a reaction. Things like bagels and cake really blow up my stomach, 1 hour after eating them I am doubled over with cramps and pain. Here's the part I'm not getting. I don't seem to have symptoms everytime I eat gluten. It seems to be with more highly concentrated amounts. Now it may be that I'm having minor symptoms but so used to it that I don't know it, I honestly don't know. It also seems that whenever I have gluten later in the day like dinnertime the symptoms are worse. Does this make any sense to anyone? Can you have a gluten intolerance but not have symptoms everytime you eat it? I have not been tested yet but have been completely off gluten for 2 weeks and haven't had any symptoms. I plan to talk to my doctor about it very soon. thanks all, have a great day!
