I drink a good amount of fluids throughout the day. If I have bread for lunch (ie a sandwich), then my body seems to stop producing urine and I just dont need to go to the toilet for about 5 hours at which point I'll pass a small amount of very dark urine. Will then function normally in the evening with larger clearer urinations. I am drinking plenty and will drink more and more all afternoon!
If I go through exactly the same day (ie going to work, sitting at the desk all day, drinking exactly the same amounts) but dont have bread for lunch, and have a salad or a baked potato then I will be urinating about every 60minutes all afternoon and it'll be clear and colourless.
Is this a common symptom of a wheat problem?
A bit more history....
I've been a bit unwell for the last few years. It started with increasing from my usual 1 bowel movement a day to 2 or 3 (but since then I've been back to once a day), but then I got hit with frequent urination, which was diagnosed as chronic prostatitis (with unknown cause). I've had other symptoms like an itchy rash on the tops of my feet and lower legs, used to come on first thing in the morning. But not continuous. Grainy skin. Tiredness and muscle aches, headaches & blurry vision. Just general run downness! Gurgling stomach and bloating, sometimes constipation, a couple of spells of diarrhoea but nothing significant. Bowel pain.
Then I did a YorkTest and find I was majorly intolerant to milk and eggs. Thought this was it, but after cutting both of these out my symptoms all improved a lot but were still there. I get a stinking headache and the runs if I have milk.
If I have very yeasty bread straight fresh from a bakers rather than from a supermarket I get a sleepy/dozy headache kind of feeling for an hour or so. But not on normal cheap bread....
Sometimes I wonder if I've got some liver or inflammatory bowel disease that is causing all this.
I do wonder if it could be celiac but I really dont suffer from diarrhoea or major constipation. But this thing with urine output after eating bread seems a real clue so interested in your opinions.
