I just started a gluten free diet. At first, I was doing really well, but I’ve experienced same symptoms for a few days now. When experiencing them before, I was able to explain them from eating gluten I wasn’t aware of. Also, beans tend to give me the same symptoms, too, so I’m avoiding those. However, lately, I’ve been unable to explain the symptoms. I read somewhere that my gut will need to heal before I can attempt things like alcohol or caffeine. Can you guys provide some insight on this? Does my gut need to heal? What should I expect?
Before I was trying this diet, I was having diarrhea at least 5 out of 7 days/nights a week. I also have multiple nocturnal episodes of diarrhea and multiple episodes of bloating/cramping. It’s been hell. I’ve lost SO much sleep. It’s been like this for a good 3 years, yet I’ve only just started trying the gluten free thing.
