  1. Long Time Gluten Free Still Having Pain

    I haven't had my blood checked, but I think contamination might be the problem. I live with people who..."don't see the big deal" with gluten intolerance or my other food allergies. I try to be very careful, but I'm guessing I'm not being careful enough. Thank you for all the help. I feel kind of silly, I've done the food journals and all and thought I was done with it years ago. Thanks again.
  2. I've been gluten free for nearly 5 years now and I'm still having a lot of trouble with pain in my lower abdomen. I freaked out really bad once, because it was in the same place as when my step-dad's appendix burst, spent 4 hours in the hospital and a very expensive MRI to have the doctors say they couldn't find any reason for it to hurt. I try to be very careful, but am I crazy? Am I not being careful enough? Is there anything I can do to make it go away? I've gotten so use to not feeling good, do I need to just stop complaining about it?
