  1. Hello! I am new to the forum, although I have been reading information for a week or so and it has been helpful. I went yesterday for the blood test so I won't know for another week. Is it possible to be intolerant to wheat and have a negative result? My symptoms are a little strange: low back pain, abdominal pain on right side, sore lymph nodes, the soles of my feet and the palms of my hands hurt a lot, I can get very irritable and also depressed at times, insomnia, my bowel movements tend to be looser but I would not call it diarrea sometimes i get constipated. My abdominal pain increases though an hour or so before a bowel movement. My symptoms got quite bad just after thanksgiving ( I am Canadian ). I wonder if it was the stuffing and then we had hot turkey sandwiches with left over stuffing and this fall when it all started I started to eat Shredded wheat with wheat bran cereals. We also eat whole wheat pasta a couple times a week. Today is my first day to go completely gluten free as I was waiting for the test. Let me know if you have experienced the sore lymph nodes, sore feet/hands as I have not found anything else about it. I also seem to get pain in my legs that seems to come from the bones. I had a Ct scan 2 weeks ago that did not show anything abnormal except for a small cyst on my right ovary. I have not had my periods since early September and before that it was April and my FSH and LSh levels were very high showing I am now menopausal. My mom had rheumatoid arthritis, my Dad has passed away but he always had trouble with digestion. Sorry this is so long, thank you all, charlie
