More Sensitive Now?

I thought I was gluten free for most of the past 3 months and saw massive amounts of improvement with every complaint I've ever had. The first thing I noticed was that after a month on the diet, I started eating cliff bars. After a few weeks, I realized this was the cause of my brain fog and haven't had any since. Recently, I've started not feeling my best (constipation, extreme fatigue, muscle aches, etc). For the two days, I've been having salsa on my eggs and I've been feeling bad again particularly with constipation. The thing is, I did feel better from the beginning of the diet and I've been eating this salsa the entire time with a two week or so break before this reaction. I'm going to call tomorrow and find out the gluten content (tomato paste and natural flavoring) but is it possible that I'm getting more and more sensitive? I mean literally this morning, I ate the salsa (on eggs) got a tummy ache after suffering all day yesterday with painful constipation.

As far as I know, I'm only gluten intolerant (self-dx) rather than Celiac.

I too notice more sensitivity to gluten after being gluten free for a while. But, you may look at doing an elimination diet for a few weeks to see if you have any other sensitivities or any allergies. Many people that are gluten sensitive are also sensitive to other foods. The improvement in how you feel deffinately can be worth the time.

I know you said you had issues with Cliff bars...have you tried Lara Bars? Gluten free and YUM!

Sometimes people with gluten sensitivities also get food sensitivities to other things--like the nightshade family (tomatoes and peppers and potatoes) for instance. Mainly I think its due to leaky gut but who knows for sure.

My 12 year old son and I were diagnosed at the same time. We both seem to be getting more and more sensitive and unable to eat things that we used to eat just fine. It has been 2 years now and I'm not sure whether we have seen the limit to our low gluten threshold. I sure hope that we have. The other food sensitivity that we have is to oats. I haven't found a commercial salsa that I can eat.
