Apologies for the long post but I really need help! I am new to all this, I have been suffering a variety of symptoms, after speaking to my doctor she has advised I try and give up gluten and see if it helps. I have only been doing this for about 3 weeks, but I have made a few mistakes by stupidly not checking ingredients properly and also because I am not totally sure what I am looking for?
This is what happens to me, does this sound familiar to you?
yesterday I was completely GF until I had 10 Maltesers (didn't even think they would be an issue) this was about 9.30pm, went to bed felt fine, then ..... 2am I woke up with horrendous tummy pains, noisy tummy and felt like I was going to explode, very very bloated and an urgency to go to the toilet (Which is good in a way as I'm usually constipated) not diarrhoea but had to go quickly. still have tummy ache today last time this happened a had a tummy ache for about 5 days. It definitely coincides with when i have eaten gluten!
Does that sound like a gluten issue?
