I started getting sick in high school randomly and it started getting worse in college (I am 22). I had an old roommate with Celiac disease so I thought I would try seeing if I had a food allergy since I kind of knew how that all worked. Well, gluten was making me sick so I got tested for Celiac after I already started the diet. I was told I did not have Celiac but to just stay away from it. I cheated a lot on the diet at first because it was hard but now I have been at it for about 6 months and do not really cheat anymore because I know how sick it makes me.

In the past few months, I have slowly felt like the pain is coming back. When I eat gluten, I normally throw up. This is not happening but I have stomach pains, my throat gets super dry, my chest starts hurting, gassy, I get heart burn and I just feel weird. I do not eat anything with gluten in it so I don't know what it is. I do not wanna go to the doctor even though I know I should because i do not have time for all the testing.

I was just wondering if anyone else ever had this problem and what they did. I have read that I should probably cut out dairy but I am in denial that that is it because gluten is hard enough to cut out. Is it possible I am just getting more sensitive and its a CC problem? I did notice that when I eat french fries, I start getting a horrible stomach ache and terribly gassy.I used to eat them with no problem. I eat them with ranch, so I don't know if its CC with the fries or the ranch. Any advice would be great :)

Hi, our family has just done the elimination diet which is how we discovered my daughter is celiac (not tested). It is pretty full on and involved eliminating all reactive foods (doesn't leave much) and after symptoms go away then reintroduce each food group to see if there's a reaction.

Also reactions can be delayed so it's not always clear what is causing the symptoms.

Good luck, Ann

Simple solution? Quit cheating... period. If it makes you feel like that, why the heck do you eat it?

At any rate, its probably a CC issue. Fryers can be used for many things that are gluteny. Unless a resteraunt has a dedicated one, then its a no go. As for the ranch it depends on the company. Sometimes gluten is in salad dressing sometimes it isn't.

I've been gluten free for a year and about a half. I'm a college student. I refuse to eat at any of the eateries on campus because A: i spent two years in the dorms and i know well enough what goes on and how little it takes for things to get CC'd. B; when i asked the new eatery what they had gluten free they said they only had a pizza. It was cooked along side gluteny ones.

    • It's good to know it was of use, thanks for letting me know   All the best, Matt
    • Hi Matt,   Thank you very much for a thorough response. Your link seems to cover pretty much all the questions one might have in my current situation. I appreciate it.   Have a wonderful day, Lex
    • I am worried about the cost but I think having that test done would help me rule things out. Either way I need to see a G.I my issues are getting out of control.
    • Thank you for all the information. I am sorry for the late reply to everyone. I have been feeling worse and worse lately. Got the blood test results, it came back negative. Seeing a G.I specialist in three months (too long for me :/) I've been keeping a food diary and realize I feel worse after eating gluten. After the G.I I want to start the diet. I'm going to call him and see if I can get seen sooner. The bloodwork said theres no signs of inflammation and they don't suspect it to be autoimmune but they want me to do the diet anyway. I wish I had answers because my vision is getting worse, cramping, nerve pain and trips to the bathroom are amplifying. Meh. Also I have a vitamin d deficiency so I am taking d3 2000iu with vitamin b12. Thanks for the help! 
    • I'm sorry you are dealing with this. My son deals with food intolerances that are not identified by any biomarker as well. I hear the same response from doctors in that, "if the food makes him feel bad then it's probably best to avoid the food." (Thanks for your insight doc!) His symptoms are not dermatological though. His symptoms are mostly neurological and psychiatric with some bloating and mild digestive issues. He loses his mind quite literally if he digests gluten. Also develops what is known as a stereotypy, involuntary movement of hands. He is otherwise a normal child. We are unable to obtain any kind of diagnosis though.  I know you're avoiding a lot of foods right now, but don't get discouraged. It's just a way of life and you're doing the right thing. Right now we are avoiding foods such as soy, all types of grain, chocolate, dairy and nightshades. I have limited his iodine intake as well. I have personally found that gluten, iodine and soy cause intensely itchy blisters and joint pain for me. Perhaps have you tried cutting back on iodine intake?
