gluten free oatmeal :blink:

I can't tolerate oatmeal either. It really makes me feel lousy, probably the intolerance coupled with the way it expands in your gut. Bulk plus inflamation doesn't feel good. I had the same problem pre diagnosis when my doctor told me to try to add fiber to combat what he mistakenly thought was IBS and I took metamucil. Same feeling as when I eat oatmeal.

The hardest thing for me was being told I was a hypochodriac by many people, including doctors, over the years. Apparently, my biggest problem was always stress. Gee, all I needed to do was relax and all the pain should go away. LOL.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is why I have always been in so much pain in my joints, and my PCP kept telling me I needed to lose weight and I would feel better! Yes I was 30# over weight but it fluctuated so much! I had GERD symptoms that he brushed under the rug and the final straw was the intussusception that was found during an ER CT scan, he wanted to brush that off and I demanded to see a GI specialist so here we are...glad that I might possibly have a dx now!! Makes me feel somewhat better to know I might be able to have some rest to the years of pain!
