    Stomach pain after eating wheat and drinking milk

    After having stomach problems for over 3 years, I changed my diet so I'm gluten free and drink almond milk. This has helped a lot, I find if I'm strict with myself my stomach is a lot better. I would just like to ask if I do lapse and eat food containing wheat my stomach starts to play up, will this harm me?

    I'm probably writing this as we've just had Xmas so I've eaten the odd chocolate containing wheat! I am usually strict and after all this time used to the diet.

    I have been tested for coeliac by blood test and endoscopy ( while eating wheat) both came back clear, the doctor commented on how good my bloods were and diognosed ibs.

    It's unlikely eating these things will harm you other than giving you the uncomfortable symptoms you have noticed when you consume them.
