My name is Claire I'm new here. This is my first post anywhere about gluten. For a long time I had a big bloated stomach that looked pregnant. I didn't know what it was. About four months ago I just ate fruit and vegetables and my stomach went flat. I figured out that it was happening every time I was eating gluten. I ate gluten by mistake a few times but I pretty much know about being gluten free now
When I'd eat gluten by mistake then stop I would get headaches for two days. I'd feel really nervous, anxious and scared. I have panic attacks and anxiety. I don't feel as anxious as I did since I gave up gluten. Not a huge amount but a bit
The hardest part for me is being vegan having a citrus allergy and corn gives me gluten affects. Where there's loads of great vegan gluten free products in the UK most of them seem to have corn in them. I'd love to talk to other vegans going through a similar thing but everyone is welcome to come and have a chat.
