I thought I was gluten free for the past six months (been wheat-free for almost a year) but after coming to this site I learned that I was still eating hidden sources of gluten all the time. Over the past month, I've been trying to adhere to a strict no-gluten diet. However, recently I've noticed that I've become very sensitive to corn. After eating it, my stomach aches and I feel like I have an ulcer.
Has anyone else experienced this before? I don't recall having this issue before I stopped eating gluten and am wondering if it's indicative of a messed up intensitinal track.
Do you think this will get better with time? Any suggestions?
2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life
2009 – Low T3 thyroid hormone, muscle twitching and adrenal fatigue
2006- Elevated Speckled ANA. GI suggested Celiac. Started gluten-free diet, but sloppily
2005 - Thought I had wheat "allergy." Stopped eating bread, oats problem too
College years - Still vegan -sickest point in life. Every classic celiac symptom
Teenage years - Stomach pain prompted veganism -> BIG mistake!
Child - Awful gas, D, C. Chronic infections, appendix and tonsils removed

Hubby finally had endoscopy and an ulcer was found. Surprise! that answered a lot of questions about why when he first went gluten-free he still had some symptoms.
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
