Barley vs Wheat
Posted by KK on 1/6/2018, 20:23:48
I've not been diagnosed as coeliac yet. Still pretty unsure as to what is going on with stomach. I am eating a gf diet and 99% of the time I'm fine. Last week, I made a drunken mistaken and ate a Big Mac meal. It didn't seem to affect me much. Bit of pain the next day and some dodgy toilet trips for a few days. Tonight, I ordered food in a restaurant and specifically mentioned I am intolerant to gluten (Chicken in a mushroom sauce with rice). While eating it I got a few stomach pains. After 10 minutes I was running to the toilet and had a very severe reaction that lasted around 30 minutes. Only thing I can think of is there was barley in the sauce. Anyone else react much worse with barley than wheat?
