I've been going gluten free because I have extremely high suspicions that I have celiac disease, and I my doctor suggested while I am waiting for results to just begin a gluten free lifestyle.

Does anyone feel more sensitive to spicy foods? I don't know if perhaps I am digesting things different now.

Make sure your spices don't have gluten in them-we had a whole bunch we can't use! The spice packet for Taco Bell has wheat in it and the spices they use in their restaurant do also because Robbie can't eat a taco or the cheese sauce.

If you are not gluten free and a celiac then just about anything can affect your stomach.
I know when I first started the diet anything spicy would upset my stomach...I guess that was during the healing time.
You do have to make sure the spices are gluten free though too.
Everything needs to be checked... even products.
I love spicy food and can handle it with no problem now. Maybe once you heal then you can have it or maybe there is something your body just doesn't agree with but make sure the spices are gluten free.

The spicy food that you are eating may have gluten in it, or you may just be sensitive to it for a while. I use McCormick a lot for my spices since they will clearly indicate gluten in their ingredient lists.

I'm not particularly sensitive to spicy food - in fact my husband has to regularly remind me to make dinner "only a little bit spicy" or what I think is nicely spicy will be too hot for him to eat! ;-) But everyone's different, regardless of celiac disease, as to how much spiciness sits well with them.

I called all of the companies - it was a horseradish I was using, as well as French's Bold and Spicy mustard, Frank's Hot Sauce, and even freshly grated ginger!

This is hard.

Habenero peppers all the way! :lol: I like my food radioactive. I only use real peppers to spice up my foods. I don't use any processed spices or sauces at all.
