Sorry for the double reply but I am going to try out the fructose free diet again. Apparently, fructose is in some lettuces, and a bunch more of the food I've been eating than I thought. Wish me luck!

Good luck! So you know, my mom who has FM does really well on lean meats and eggs, white rice or potatoes (not brown rice), and dark leafy greens like kale, spinach, or chard. You can start with those foods and expand if it helps. :)

My doctor told me to stop te fructose free diet. He put me on Cipro for 14 days suspecting Sibo.

I am debating going on a gluten free diet again, but longer than one week. I read that it can take several weeks to feel better. My main question is, for people who are gluten intolerant, before you started your gluten free diet would you get symptoms after every meal or was it a round the clock bloating/gas symptoms etc with no relevance to meal times?

Sorry, I guess I should have been more clear. Before you went gluten free did you have symptoms after any meal - or were you able to correlate it to certain foods or time of the day. If you ate a salad would you still get symptoms until you healed from the gluten inflammation?

I'm so glad I found this post--my symptoms are EXACTLY the same, and I am just as confused as you are as to how to move forward. Please let me know if you find any solution to this problem, because I've spent countless hours researching, cutting out certain foods, trying different supplements, but there is no clear pattern. So frustrating :( I have not tried antibiotics at this point, but wonder if that is the next step.

Candida is real, it is also known as thrush. I have had it before and they gave me antibiotics for it which got rid of it. Now the people saying that it never goes away and the forums for it... Well for alit of those people I think alot of it is in their head. Yeast overgrowth in the body is usually caused by taking strong antibiotics. That's how I got mine. The symptoms I had were: noisy stomach, gas (really bad) foggy brains, white patches on tongue, headaches, and craving breads and sugars. When I ate sugar, the bloating got worse and so did the gas. This was way before I got sick with celiac and the doctor confirmed the yeast diagnosis with a throat culture and tongue swab. If you think you have Celiac, or that, then eat fresh foods and lots of fresh veggies. Stay away from products with yeast in them. Eating a healthy diet can't hurt you! Ever thought of being lactose I tolerant? I am and I get super gassy like how you described.

I just know a month on the Celiac diet I feel a ton better.. But I'm having really bad gas, bloating issues.. I don't know if its because i'm getting glutened by accident, or if I might be something else..

My grandmother and aunt have Celiac and also Corn allergy.. Would Corn cause Gas and bloating issues..?

My husband is afraid to be in public with me because it smells soooooo bad...

Breakfast, steel cut oats(gluten free) and apples. And rice dream milk.

Lunch-Odi bread (gluten free) and gluten free Turkey breast with mustard and lettuce

Kettle Chips (gluten free), Nuts (walnuts and chocolate covered almonds--which maybe caused it, but not chocolate covered, its more like cocoa powder)

Gluten Free Betty Crocker Cookies

V-8 Fusion (gluten free)

Helping of a soup I made (rotel, corn, potatoes, garlic, brown rice)

Dinner- Mashed potatoes, Crockpot Chicken and green beans (all gluten free and made by me)

Maybe this is too much, but i'm constantly hungry all the time.. i think the gas and bloating maybe came from corn or nuts... Or maybe its just natural with all the vegetables and fruits.. But it definitely looks like i'm 3 months prego or something.. I took a pain pill left over from my ER visit a few months back, and i farted and felt better. Took and nap and woke up right as rain... i can't explain the weird gas at night.

Not all of us are able to handle even gluten free oats :( And the Rice Dream milk although it claims to be gluten free, and has revamped the label and maybe their processing, still seems to bother some of our posters (it is filtered with barley but they claim there is no residual gluten left. So you might try revamping your breakfast to a rice or some other cereal you tolerate, and using almond or hemp milk instead of Rice Dream (or there are other brands of rice milk which are okay if you really want that. Also, check your mustard - some of them have gluten.

Corn for me produces the same reaction as gluten with bloating and gas and the big D - it just doesn't last as long. Try dropping the obvious corn and see if that helps. For me, the cornstarch is not so much of a problem, but others can't have any trace corn, even in medications.

By the way, have you checked all your meds, both scrip and OTC, for gluten/corn because these are the two common fillers used in tablets?

I didn't have any rice dream milk today or corn.. and my gas was much better.. I'll try corn on another day and see if the gas returns..

How does everyone keep the gluten free products and labels straight..

Some companies list correctly?

Some don't?

And even my Publix doesn't list every gluten-free item correctly, except for the most expensive ones, especially organic ones.. Like Classico Sauce is Gluten Free, but they have an organic sauce for 9 dollars as Gluten free posted.

Its like they want us to spend the most we can for a disease we can't control..

There are many gluten free items that are not labelled as such by the supermarkets. I think maybe the food companies might pay for the gluten free label (if they make the claim on their product.) Many companies do not make the claim because they do not test, but their product is still gluten free. It all comes down to reading the labels and finding your way around gluten free products, a process that is best done slowly, not all at once.

If wheat is in a product, it is required to be listed. So is milk, corn, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and I can't remember the other one. (This is in the U.S. of course) And of course these products take many forms in the ingredients list but the label must state if it contains one of the top 8 allergens.

    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
