trying to determine if I'm glutened or sick with an infection

Recommended Posts

When I get glutened I usually have stomach cramps, bloating, and constipationfor a few days prior to becoming sick, and then I come down with flu-like symptoms, fatigue, fevers, etc as well as diarrhea, or not always complete diarrhea but I go to the bathroom a lot more than usual and the bloating continues as well.

So Last week, and it came back this week, I'm getting the flu like symptoms that feel like I've been glutened, also a slightly scratchy throat in the morning that goes away after a few hours, but no digestive symptoms, my digestion seems fine. There are bugs going around because it's winter, but people are getting coughs and congestion which I don't have, and honestly haven't had in like 2 years. I'm breathing fine... 

So I'm trying to figure out if this is a bug or gluten? Is it possible to get glutened and not have digestive symptoms? Is it possible to catch a cold that is making everyone else cough and blow snot but then you have no respiratory problems? Does anyone else have trouble determining these things?

I get a fever too if I've been glutened.
