I have been having problems since May. I have EXTREME bloating (it looks like I am pregnant) after eating certain foods(expecially WHEAT). I have cramping, gas, diarrhea, constipation, acid reflex. I have been to a few doctors.They have tested me for celiac disease with a blood test which came back negative and a endoscopy which was also negative. I have all the symptoms of celiac but they couldn't find anything wrong. I am usually sick almost everyday from eating food. I have tried some wheat free bread and noodles and I don't have a problem at all. Does anyone know if there are anymore tests to have done or if it is possible that i was tested too early to be diagnosed? Some people say I may have IBS but I don't understand the bloating and nausea with wheat? I am so confussed!

Could it be the yeast in what you're eating? I get like that anytime I eat yeast. It is in a lot of foods, crackers, soups, sauces, pretzels, chips, etc. so you need to read all the labels. I can't eat yeast or I feel sick for a day or two. As well, when I eliminate sugars and grains for awhile I feel much better. I have had to go on an antifungal diet, close to SCD, but more limiting to get well again. Maybe try eliminating yeast and see if that helps. By the way, your symptoms sound just like mine did. I discovered I had a fungus. Doesn't come up on any test. By going on the antifungal diet, I got a whole lot better. Good luck!

Maybe you have wheat allergy or intolerance, there must be a way they can check you for that.

You're not the first person to come up negative for Celiac's but still be unable to tolerate gluten. There is, by my reckoning, a couple of explanations for this. 1) Testing is still in its primitive stages and its missing people who genuinely have Celiac's disease. 1a) Celiac's disease has more manifestations and markers than they are currently aware of or are testing for. 3) There's a bowel problem out there that's not Celiac's disease but looks and acts just like it.

If gluten bothers you, then hang your test results and just go gluten free. There's no substitute for what works.
