  1. Hello everyone, I am completely new here and ended up here by searching the internet for wheat allergy symptoms. I am so desperate. I am 26 now and have no been able to live the last 9 years of my life and no one can tell me what's wrong with me. I definitely have constant bloating and gas, I get dizzy and sometimes throw up from it, although I haven't in a while, I always feel like I am clogged up with mucus (sinus, throat, etc), I am always super thirsty, I have troubles going to the bathroom (I go once a day), I get SVTs and other occasional heartracing, I sooooo often feel like I cannot breathe right, like my throat is either closing, I can't breathe deep enough, etc, and by now I also have some candida signs. My biggest problem is this: When I go on an elimination diet I feel worse. I cut out gluten and dairy and unnatural foods. I eat salads, drink green smoothies, have brown rice pasta (which oddly enough also makes me feel less than great although it's gluten free), but when I do all this I just crave sugar and cheese and feel terrible. I MAY feel better after eating foods that I am trying to stay away from, but they do not always alleviate the discomforts. I go back and forth from eating wheat and gluten to not doing it. My diet has been focused on whole grains, healthy fats, no milk (but cheese and butter), no meat, a little fish, legumes, etc, for a few years now, and is generally healthy, yet I never achieve health. I have a terrible time losing weight and I am terribly fatigued most of the time. Taking good probiotics and digestive enzymes makes things a little better, but it doesn't cut it. The worst part is that when I eat better I feel terrible, and sadly as a single mom of a toddler I cannot afford to get SVTs (my heart starts racing, and if I cannot break it I have to go to the emergency room. I always feel ill after), faint, have trouble breathing, have headaches, etc. But I also don't feel good at all even when I am eating these foods, just in a different way. I just don't know what to do anymore. When I was pregnant I always felt like I was suffocating and the doctors only told me 'oh that's normal', except that I know it wasn't... it was like my symptoms, but worse. I have had many tests done, NOT been diagnosed with asthma or thyroid issues, or even candida, but I am pretty sure that last one is part of my problem. I had allergy tests done and came back as allergic to nothing. Since then I have learned more about testing and found out that the tests I did would not have detected Celiac disease, but my doctors just tell me I probably don't have it. I am having a really hard time just taking care of myself. I feel terrible for my child. I just want the best for him, but I am always tired and SUPER easily stressed. It's like I am always on edge. I am so desperate. Please, has anyone else experienced these things and gotten rid of them? I would really appreciate any advice!
