I have a strong gluten sensitivity and have recently discovered that I feel TONS better on a gluten, soy, and dairy free diet. I also have fibromyagia (starting to wonder about that honestly because I feel so much better eating this way).

I have celiac and can’t have any gluten, ever again. 

I feel much better since my diagnosis.  My stomach issues are gone, my headaches are gone, I am not covered in rashes and hives, my hands aren’t swelling up, etc.

Honestly, I don’t eat a lot of gluten free products.  Obviously I have rice flour, etc. but mostly just the basics.  We just usually eat a gluten free natural diet – chicken, steak, fish, rice, veggies, etc.

I try not to eat a ton of processed food.

I would look into an elimination diet.  Their usually used in kids testing for allergies, but it should work for you.  Basically you bring your diet down to super basics. No food coloring, minimal preservatives, no dairy, eggs etc.  You allow your body about two-three weeks on this super basic diet to let it resest so to speak, and then you add one possible trigger food.  You eat the food regularly for about two weeks to let it build up in your system and watch for a reaction.   If there isn’t one you can leave that food in your diet and start with a new one. 

Definetely talk to your doctor before starting anysort of diet.  These sort of things should be done under the supervision of a doctor/nutritionist.    I hope you feel better.
