I would say most likely because of the stress! I would recommend keeping track of the things you have ate and what your symptoms have been. If it seems to be all the time versus with certain foods I would try to find a way to center yourself and relax, but if it is because of the food you are eating even if it's gluten free I would make a appt. with my doctor. Stress can mutilate a body and make you feel symptoms as intense as a heart attack. Put your finger to your nose and repeat after me " The only person I can change or control is myself." If you continue to fret( beleive me I am the biggest worry wart too, but with prayer and this simple but amazing words fewI have slowly started to work on it and give it up to heaven) about your mothers life style you will drive your self in an early grave. Good luck and please keep me posted on how things go for you!
I am a recent addition to the Gluten free world. I just found out Feb 22 that I have the allergy and have it pretty severe.It only took multiple big city physicians to tell me I was exagerating the pain 3 stomache surgeries and 12 years ( I'm only 28)for a rural small town doctor to find out what was the cause of all of my discomfort and pain. I am looking for some advice and support.
