New To gluten-free And Confused (In Uk)

Hello - no idea if I am in the right place but desperately looking for some advice... 2 months ago a friend with PCOS told me that a lot of female hormone issues could be down to a gluten sensitivity. I've had PCOS for years and have bad skin, greasy hair etc so read up on it. I also get lots of odd skin rashes and bad sinus probs so thought I'd give it a go... Why not eh?

So I did gluten free for six weeks and felt no different. I thought I would add in a couple of gluteny things to see if I had any reaction. Had a slice of regular toast wednesday and felt fine. Had half a white roll thursday and got really strong stomach cramp within the hour, had it on and off until saturday lunch. Stupidly ate calamari rings saturday not thinking that the batter would have flour in... since I woke up yesterday I have been feeling so ill. My stomach is waves of really painful cramps... yesterday I felt sick and sluggish all day too. All night I"ve been up with my daughter and my stomach was killing, still is now. Should I see the GP? Is this likely a reaction to eating wheat again? When will it go away?

Hopefully someone can offer any advice... I am not really sure if this is a reaction to eating wheat or if it's a coincidence or what... any ideas?

I was told that it takes 6 MONTHS to a year to get the gluten out of ones system so I'm pretty sure 6 weeks will not cut it. While your conscience mind may have not felt improvement, it seems your body did and rebelled once things started building up a bit.
