My pain that I have had for many years is gone after I quit gluten but not the constipation. I have some other intolerances - dairy, peanuts and egg that I have taken out of my diet but that has not helped the constipation either. I have tried various forms of fiber and now take miralax which works but I really don't have "normal" bms with it. I generally don't go without using something. I really see my constipation get worse with eating gluten-free bread and pasta which I woke up this morning thinking rice may be the problem. Any ideas? I love pasta but use it in moderation already. I feel like I will never gain or even maintain my weight if I take out rice products. New gastro only pushes FIBER and more FIBER.....
There is a good possiblity that it could be autoimmune related as I have a positive ANA and may have some sort of lupus thing going on. Thyroid is normal. Being constipated is so depressing. What are your thoughts on rice?
