I have experienced the same kind of things! I am 100% gluten free, diagnosed celiac, but I was still feeling very ill, so I thought maybe some secret gluten was sneaking in. I went to my gastroenterologist, ran some tests, and discovered that I had gastroparesis, reflux, and lactose intolerance. The gastroparesis and the lactose problems were causing all of the severe gas pains. I went on omeprazole for the reflux and it has made a huge difference! I also use a special wedge pillow. I guess what I"m trying to say is, it could be a combination of things, so if possible, you should see a specialist. A few days of testing alleviated years of pain.
My favorite comment of all time was:
Friend: So you can't have donuts right?
Me: No, no donuts.
Friend: What about chocolate donuts?
This is the friend (clearly not the greatest friend) who still to this day will invite me to hang out with her and then take me to a bakery and say, "oh yeah, are there gluten free things here? The cream puffs are really good!"
