I'm listening too...I'm just a little slow to respond. :P

I get all those symptoms you described but they're not related to gluten.

I think my symptoms are from having a bacteria overgrowth and candida overgrowth which I didnt get diagnosed with until a few weeks ago. My symptoms are worse after eating. Some days it doesnt matter what I eat...I feel sick. Other days are better. I'm on a restricted diet.

Maybe you have other food intolerances??

Hi, I feel the same way when I have anything sweet or potatoes. I think it is a blood sugar rise. I also get really hot--lasts for about 15-20 minutes. Do you get that? Anyone out there get that or am I just plain weird?

Does this happen when you have dinner or does it happen after any meal

Because if it happens after a larger meal where you mix a flesh food with a carbohydrate it takes a long time for you body to break something like that down. (ie: steak and potatoes; rice and chicken) It is harder for the body to break this combination of food down becasue both of those foods require a different enzyme then the other in order to break down. Actually if you do end up eating this combination of foods, the food usually ends up spoiling in your stomach and that is what makes people sick

A combination of food like this takes about 6-8 hrs. to empty from the stomach. As apposed to eating chicken and vegtables which does not take as long to break down and it is alot easier for your body to break donw not making you as tired....takes about 2-4 hrs.

I hope that this has helped, if you would like me to expand a little bit more just let me know :D
