  1. I don't know anything about Scotomas, but aside from investigating the foods high in fructans, have you considered that the seasonality of the problem could be related to having more sunlight exposure in the summer?

Drinking lots of water is often all that needs to be done in order to keep the bacteria from getting a hold and growing in abundance to the point...
  7. For me, though gluten-free meant that a whole list of symptoms went away almost immediately, it took me another 3-4 months to figure out that I also had vitamin deficiencies. I got tested and once I started supplementing B12, my abdominal pain eased up and finally went away after a couple months...
