      Thank you both,
      So I have been tested for vitamin deficiencies and I am taking those that I need. I don't take any risks, occasionally I will try a new gluten-free product and make sure only one thing at a time so that I know whether I get on with it or not, and I eat out on the very rarest of occasions. I have been diagnosed as celiac, and then lactose intolerant since then also. I seem to be very sensitive to things and even things that really should be safe seem to give me belly ache and similar symptoms, like bananas (which I read somewhere recently could fool your body into mistaking banana for gluten?!) and rice cakes also give me stomach ache. I just don't know really. I eat mainly eggs and veg and have recently started eating meat (I thought it may be introducing meat that has caused me problems but I have then tried not eating any again for a while and that hasn't happened) I have also been tested for chrones and similar diseases, I am going to just stick to clean and raw for a while and see how it goes. I just wondered if anyone had experienced similar things and there was something obvious I was missing, but I truly am very careful and just want to feel well.
      Thanks for you replies and if there is anything you can add or suggest please do

      Always Feel Like I'm Having A Reaction
      Hi there,
      First post from me. I have been gluten-free for about four years now, I am also lactose intolerant and incredibly carful. But I just can't get it right, to be honest I could burst into tears just thinking about it and typing. I have spent more time feeling unwell than well for all my gluten-free time and the year I spent being diagnosed. I feel heavy, like my stomach is made of lead, I feel constantly bloated to the point that I am uncomfortable to leave the house, I feel so low and I don't know how to be any more compliant. My reactions last around two  weeks and I feel emotional and depressed every time, I exercise a lot and training is really important to me so every time that I feel bloated (my whole body swells and I retain water under my skin everywhere) I just can't cope with it. The doctors don't help, I have been tested for everything and I don't know which way to turn, I just need to feel well!!!! and for my belly to feel normal again!
      Any help, advise, suggestions greatly appreciated as I want to feel well more than anything,
      Thank you, Imari
