I've seen you post on the Lyme forum too. Lyme disease is known to cause or trigger Celiac and/or a form of gluten sensitivity that might get better with Lyme treatment. Lyme can also cause dysmotility in the GI tract, leading to gas problems. I would encourage you to try a gluten free diet and/or get tested for Celiac (get tested before going on a gluten-free diet, otherwise the tests are inaccurate). Also, probiotic supplements can be very helpful for those of us with Lyme.
