My names Rachel and I
Well gluten is in more things than just wheat. Umm.. Barley, Rye, some other grains I can't think of, lol. But, Wheat is a big source of gluten for most people, since we eat it more than the others, on average, I'd think.
But, not being an expert, I would say get tested for it! The removing wheat, feeling better, then feeling worse once it's introduced.. could be Celiac. If you can't find a doctor willing to test you though, just go gluten free on your own, sounds like you had success when you removed wheat, could have even more when you remove all sources of gluten. =)
If you think your daughter has it, definitely test her. Since you have symptoms, you should be tested, too. If it turns out your daughter has celiac disease, then everyone in her family should be tested, regardless of symptoms (brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, grandparents, parents)....it's likely that if she has it, someone else in her family will have it--after all, it's genetic, so it's passed down.
