Hi Grannygoose,
What a relief to read your post!! I am a 44yo mum who has been suffering with "tummy troubles" for, wow- YEARS! I have had the blood test for coeliac and it came back negative but I am SURE I am intolerant to some forms of wheat/white flour.

I'm new to SP and haven't posted much but have been tracking my food and exercise religiously for a couple of weeks and am really enjoying the camaraderie here. For the last few weeks, when I have increased my fruit/veg intake and decreased my intake of things like biscuits, cakes etc, I have been feeling great. No probs with intolerance at all (some probs keeping within my calorie allowance tho, but that's another story! lol)

Yesterday I had a Greek sweet nut roll and a chocolate biscuit at my inlaws...about 2 hours later tummy blew up like a balloon and I felt like I was going to pop! This morning had toast for breakfast (I usually stick to porridge or an oat based cereal) and now, some 8 hours later, my gut hurts and I feel full of wind.

PLEASE tell me I'm not going crazy and this IS some kind of wheat intolerance! I think I must be similar to you, Grannygoose4.

Sorry I didn't mean to garble on! Have a wonderful day.

Wow! I wondered if there was anything on SP about celiac disease. And lo and behold there is a team. I'm so excited. I found out a couple of yrs ago that I have celiac. I started out being very strict but found out that it is just too hard and time consuming. I now don't worry about as much and try to be careful what i eat. I think celia is not the same for everyone. I know of people who can't have any gluten at all, and then like me, I seem to do okay in moderation. I'm so glad i found you guys. I'd love to hear your stories and get some ideas on how to eat gluten free.
