I've been avoiding wheat for a while because I seemed to feel better after I stopped, and I had a little bit of joint pain that also seemed to disappear when I stopped eating it. I'm always skeptical, though. Almost all of my friends are happy eating breads and pastas and I thought maybe I was just getting on a bandwagon. Imagining symptoms maybe?
So, it was feeling like a hassle and I ate a couple of sandwiches and some pasta in the past two days and just noticed what I believe are hives. They are mostly small, a few are a bit bigger like patches of excema, mostly on my torso and arms.
It seems very probable that it was the wheat. But could it have been because I was overly warm in my sweater today? What can I do to rule out other causes for certain? I am feeling grumpy about eating a restricted diet without being 100% of the need to do so.
