  1. Hello Everyone! I am newbie here! This is a wonderful forum w/tons of good info. Anyway, about 2 years ago, I started feeling a lot of tightness in my lungs/chest area - almost a suffocating feeling. It felt like an elephant was always standing on my chest, or like someone stuffed my lungs with cotton balls. It took my a while to figure out what was wrong w/me. Eventually I found out it was a gluten intolerance.....but I'm still trying to figure it out. I just came back from a 10 day trip to Argentina where I at bread with every meal....and had no issues! The day I got back I ate a bagel and felt HORRIBLE! That feeling in my chest came back and it didn't go away for a few days. Does anyone know why I could eat bread in Argentina and not here in the US?? I'm starting to think that maybe it isn't a Gluten Intolerance but some sort of other intolerance (preservatives, or something like that). If anyone has any feedback it would be great! Thanks!
