Could I be gluten intolerant?

I am experiencing the following symptoms

Stabbing stomach pain
Constant hunger
Irregular bowel movements (constipation and diarrhea)
Muscle pain

What could it be? I think it might be an allergy, because I feel like I am reacting strongly when I eat a meal with a lot of gluten. Are these symptoms that are common in gluten allergy/intolerance? I can't be pregnant, because I am on birth control and already tested negative for it.

Hi roos97,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Alot of the symptoms you listed are include associated with gluten sensitivity. Symptons include:

  •  “foggy mind”
  • depression, 
  • ADHD-like behavior
  • abdominal pain
  • bloating, diarrhea and/or constipation
  • headaches
  • bone or joint pain
  • chronic fatigue 

These and other symptoms can occur when a person with gluten intolerance digest gluten in their diet.

Go have a full allergy panel done and that will tell you if you are allergic to gluten as well as many other things.

Be well,
