Greetings all. My symptoms point to celiac or at least a strong sensitivity to gluten but symptoms do not seem to make sense in some ways. I will be visiting a doctor at some point but I would like to go with a general idea of what should be tested for.
Ingestion of a flour tortilla or amys pizza (high quality frozen pizza):
Foggy brain, mild feeling of irritated stomach/intestines. Joints feel agitated and I want to take a nap.
Ingestion of highly processed gluten in junk such as eat a cheeseburger, a soft serve cone, anything fried, or whenever gluten is found with sugar such as a cookie or something:
IMEDIATE (as in far too soon for the food to have actually been digested ??) bleeding from anus. A pretty fair amount could even be mistaken for getting my period. It feels like I am digesting glass and I can be laid out napping the entire day.
The reason this doesnt make sense to me is that isnt gluten responssible for the chewyness of bread? so wouldnt there be far more in a pizza crst and a tortilla then highly processed bread crumbs or a sugar cone? How could I react within 10-15 min with rectal bleeding when that is far too early to have even digested the gluten?
Thank you in advance this disturbs me greatly!
*note- I dont eat junk food regularly or anything in fact I wonder if that may be making it worse when I do have something bad. I have been living 99% gluten free for a year or so now.
