I just had stomach cramps and diarrhea whenever I ate gluten and later on I had really bad acid reflux and permanent bloating and just felt generally like I was dying, I honestly didn't feel like I was going to live more than a couple more months at the time I finally gave up eating gluten, I was pretty sick. I used to get swollen hands and pins and needles. You could be deficient in something else, once your gut stops absorbing food you get deficient in lots of things. I haven't had stomach cramps or diarrhea for a couple years now but for the last year or so I was having a persistent burning pain in the guts, it's hard to say exactly how much pain that was because I was used to it, but you really had to twist the skin on my arm A LOT to induce enough pain elsewhere to make me not notice the gut pain, so I'm figuring it was pretty bad. It didn't really bother me though because like I said, I was used to it. It's gone now though.
gluten free diet is hard to stick like how long on the gluten free diet did it take for it all to settle down?? my guts feel like on fire and sting after i eat alot of the time like thanks for information much appreciated
