  1. Thank you both for your comments. I feel much better today and hope I won't have another episode but who knows. Again thank you.
  2. I've been having stomach cramps, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, bruising easy, lower back pain, etc. for about 6 years. I went to several doctors and lots of tests later no help. I was told I had chronic constipation...but every time I took the miralax, senna, or whatever else they told me to take it would just make things worse. Finally I went to get tested for food allergies, they said I didn't have any allergies and my blood test for celiac came back normal. I finally went to my family doctor for something else and told him about my frustration with my stomach problems. He thought it was a gluten intolerance or celiac. He told me sometimes the blood test will show a negative result even if you have an intolerance. So he suggested I go on a gluten free diet. After I started the diet my stomach cramps stopped immediately. I had a little diarrhea on day 3 but then I've been feeling fine until tonight (day 6). I went out to dinner with some friends and ordered from the gluten free menu. But one of the side dishes wasn't on the menu, the waitress said it came with all the meals. It had sausage in it and I told her I didn't think I could have it, but she said it was gluten free. But 30 minutes after dinner I started having stomach cramps and diarrhea. So my question is....was it due to dinner or is this normal during the first few weeks? Did I just get glutened??? This is so confusing.....
