The Mystery Rash

For years I had this rash on my right knee right on the side of it. Really itched like crazy. It looked like tiny little blisters they came by twos. they looked like little bites. I would scrach them and they would break open and the juice would spread and then i would have more bumps. I went to see many doctors no one knew what it was nothing helped it. I am now I am convinced its from gluten. Does any one else have these bumps?

I Need Help

The last year I lost 50 pounds I had been dieting and excersing. I had noticed before loosing weight I would have problems when we went out to eat I had to always rush to the bathroom afterwards. I put two and two together and fiqured out maybe I was gluten intolerant. When I ate breads or pastas I would have really bad cramps and have to rush to the bathroom, my stomach would blow up like a balloon. If i ate a sandwich for lunch my stomach would make this terrible noise and I am a dental hygienist so it was really embarrassing. One day I was asked if i was pregnant because all my weight is in my belly and when i would eat those things I looked pregnant. So I was tired of everyone asking me and I decided to loose weight and cut out the Gluten. SO I have been bad at times and every once in a while eat a piece of bread and then I would pay for it if I ate too much. I recently went to the doctor and they checked to see if I had celiac but the test came back negative even the gene test said I could not have it, When I eat breads or anything with gluten in it I feel like a shock goes across my chest and my heart races and I have to use the bathroom and I feel terrible. I did not know until recently that i was eating chips with gluten in it but everytime I would eat the chips my throat would close up same thing with rice Krispy treats. THey tell me that my symptoms are anxiety but non of the anxiety meds help. I also have Gerd. I am so confused I dont know what to do. I want to eat breads again but i am scared it will make me sick so I stay away.
