Plz Help! Symptoms Come And Go!

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help me or relate to what I'm going through. I seem to have several symptoms of gluten intolerance. They include IBS, gas, bloating, joint pains etc. I have found a definite connection to my eating certain foods and having a reaction. Things like bagels and cake really blow up my stomach, 1 hour after eating them I am doubled over with cramps and pain.

Here's the part I'm not getting. I don't seem to have symptoms everytime I eat gluten. It seems to be with more highly concentrated amounts. Now it may be that I'm having minor symptoms but so used to it that I don't know it, I honestly don't know. It also seems that whenever I have gluten later in the day like dinnertime the symptoms are worse. Does this make any sense to anyone? Can you have a gluten intolerance but not have symptoms everytime you eat it?

I have not been tested yet but have been completely off gluten for 2 weeks and haven't had any symptoms. I plan to talk to my doctor about it very soon.

thanks all, have a great day!

That sounds like me. I would get very ill after eating 100% whole wheat pasta but could do regular white pasta okay. If I ate 100% whole wheat bread I would get sick but not so much with white bread. I also felt worse in the evening, after I ate dinner. About an hour after I would eat dinner I would have to RUN to the bathroom and that's where I camped out for the rest of the evening. Not fun. I think it was because I was eating so much gluten at night, pasta, bread, gravy, all that good stuff. I usually eat pretty light during the day because I have no time to eat!
