This is my first time posting something in a forum setting. I have developed an intolerance to all wheat products in the last year and a half. When I eat something I shouldn't (like a bagel or a brownie) my stomach gets bloated and I feel really nauseated for many hours after. I also get loose BM's for a while. These episodes can keep me awake for several hours taking Pepto Bismol trying to combat the nausea. Does anyone else experience similair symptoms to eating wheat products? Thank you!

Welcome to HealingWell! :-)
It sounds like you may have Celiac's.... Have you been tested? It isn't that uncommon to have this intolerance. In fact, there was just another member on here asking about it. Hopefully s/he will be around shortly. You know, you could probably do a "Celiac Diet" search on the internet and find a whole bunch of foods and recipes to help steer you away from wheat. It might be hard at first to stick to wheat free, but it will probably get easier as time passes. Not to mention you'll be feeling so much better that you probably won't want to go back.
Good luck! I hope someone else comes along shortly...

I think that article on wheat-free beer that I read said that there are at least 3 million gluten-intolerant people in the US. And you know some people have it, but haven't put two-and-two together with wheat and their stomach problems.

Not all people who are gluten-intolerant also have Celiac's disease. Sometimes your guts won't digest something, even thought you don't show up as being allergic to it. If you know that wheat bothers you, you don't even have to have the Celiac test (which may show up negative, but still not make digesting gluten any easier for you); just do gluten-free products. They are in all health food stores and are starting to show up more and more in regular grocery stores. I think it may be next year when product labels have to clearly state food items contained in them that are typical allergens (like wheat, dairy, nuts, shellfish, etc.); hopefully that will make it easier for you and others to shop for food.
