Achey Breaky Guts

Anyone else out there intolerant to wheat or gluten? I had some Naan bread last night and since then my poor old belly has been in knots and a world of pain. Back off the bread today, that is for sure and slowly less gassy and feeling better.

Oh how funny you posted this Liz... I had oats for brekky yesterday and we also had our meal out in which I ate some garlic bread... OMG I am in a world of pain right now... Toilet is my best friend (TMI i Know!) and I am about to head out for a walk to settle it a little bit. I HATE THIS! BUT I have learnt that at this stage in my life (unless a miracle happens) I can't eat wheat / gluten and pretty much dairy. And I have to WORK MY A** off to stay thin... Unlike some who don't even have to work at it! lol

Hope you're well honey.

I know the less wheat and dairy I have the more sensitive I become to them. oats = drippy nose, milk/yoghurt = rumbly tummy. I always enjoy eating out until afterward!
hope you feel better soon xx

You know I do Liz, and I'm suffering from Friday night's meal too. Yesterday I was totally lethargic and unwell, today I wake up with full sinuses and a migraine! YUCK I'm sick of this! Pity party over here today.

Hi Liz, I'm guessing it's wheat you are intolerant to. There is gluten in oats (although not as much as in wheat, barley or rye), and you seem to be able to tolerate them! Hope your tummy settles down soon!

Ditto, pasta is actually the worst for me, I am literally doubled over in pain. Never eat that now. Bread, sometimes I feel I can 'get away with it' but not for long. I'm in the same place as Jadey, LOL.

Yep! Oats are fine. 1 or two pieces of grainy bread are fine but naan bread does horrible things to my guts! White bread probably does too... I just haven't had it in forever.

Miss Liz....I am wheat and gluten intolerant, I can personally vouch that you would definitely know if you have an allergy it wouldn't just be from one meal of naan bread. I suggest instead of listening to us and self diagnosing perhaps get allergy tested to know for sure and then you can adjust your food intake accordingly. I believe if you have been eating wheat and gluten in various forms then perhaps it could have even been a bad batch of naan bread. Who knows. Get the test, easy to to and results make it easier to deal with.
