I normally post in UC forum but for the past few months my symptoms have not followed my classic UC flare type.
Is it possible to have celiac and be able to eat a very small amount of gluten (a hamburger bun) and be somewhat ok (except for bloated feeling) and when having a bigger portion or amount of gluten (bowl of pretzels, huge amount of cereal, big size of pasta) be plagued with horrific diarrhea, cramping, and urgency about 8 hours after ingestion? This was what I noticed with my food diary. But oddly the small amounts do not produce the more severe symptoms.
Also, I'm 39, never noticed a problem until recent bout of terrible food poisoning. Is that common?
I'm having my scopes soon but want to try and figure things out myself.
Thanks so much for reading and I hope someone can relate or provide insights.
