No, you don't understand: those are my safe foods for IBS and GERD, in that they don't trigger any symptoms of those problems. However, on TOP of those problems, I'm exhibiting multiple symptoms associated with wheat sensitivity.

Hi and welcome to the team. I don't think your problem is with wheat since you are able to eat bread, muffins and bagels. They all contain wheat. White flour is wheat. Just one third of the wheat product but still wheat.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thats quite the list of no go's. I only have gluten from Celiac Disease and am picky so that limits me but thats my issue.

There's several great people here in this group that are a great help. Hopefully they can give you more suggestions.

Once you go wheat free or GF you might find that some of your "no" foods might be OK again.

Good Luck!

Hey everyone,

I strongly suspect and am investigating a wheat sensitivity or allergy right now. In the meantime, given how many symptoms I have for which we've ruled out other explanations, I'm thinking I should try to go wheat-free/as close to it as possible for now.

The thing is, I also struggle with IBS and GERD, and a lot of foods trigger me off and make me ill, even on my medications. I recently drew up a blog here on SP with my safe foods and "sorta-safe" foods, and the list is not very long... and a lot of it contains wheat! Even looking around at suggestions and recipes here, I'm seeing brick walls: I cannot tolerate lactose; eggs are a no-go most days; beans and many veggies are a no as well; I can't eat corn in any form if I don't want to feel awful...

Is anyone else struggling with these sorts of conflicts? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about planning meals for home and on the go (often the case for me, being in college) that won't kill me?

If it helps, this post lists my safe foods (including items with wheat) for the IBS and GERD - Foods that don't trigger THOSE issues. The wheat issue is a whole other ballgame beyond this list:

Thanks in advance... I am so frustrated... I'm a bit of a foodie too, so it's depressing to want food but not be able to eat it. emoticon
