    Over the last three years Iíve gone through phases of feeling like absolute dog shit; lots of joint pain, headaches, and feeling lethargic. Through elimination Iíve found that wheat is a big cause for this and have been mostly gluten free for two years. Recently Iíve noticed the same symptoms except with rice. Since Iíve stopped eating gluten Iíve been eating tons of rice so maybe that caused a new sensitivity, but im not gonna eat it anymore due to how badly it makes me feel. What would be some good slow digesting carb sources I can use other than sweet potatoes which are basically all I eat now? Also, is developing food sensitivities as an adult (Iím 29) common?

    It can happen, i'm not sure how common it is. Can you tolerate oats? Legumes? Fruits?

    Some fruit and I try to always have an apple and Gatorade before workouts which has helped a ton, more so the slow digesting ones have been giving me problems. Iíll give oats a try and didnít even consider legumes so Iíll try that as well. Thanks for the help Santana

    You are very welcome. Is it possible that you have IBS?

    Iíve never been to a gastroenterologist, but my symptoms arenít your typical digestive issues. Instead itís aches in my hands, forearms, shins and feet mostly; it also can be headaches. Iíve narrowed it down a bit to a few things that really flair it up: wraps, bread, pasta but even gluten free so maybe something with the sauce, taco seasoning, and now rice. I had a food sensitivity test done two years ago but some of my most sensitive foods such as apples and casein donít cause any pain or digestive issues, where wheat is relatively low on the scale but I know for a fact right after I eat a sandwich or pizza I will start hurting.

    Have you checked your T?

    Quinoa is an alternative. Have you tried brown rice or just white rice?

    Sounds like some sort of acute inflammatory response. My general advice here is to start by eliminating all foods on that list then slowly reintroducing the least risky items. It sounds like you've done a version of this so just keep building on that until you identify what works for you and what does not. This is the sort of thing that varies from person to person so I don't have a one-size-fits all solution here unfortunately.

    Dont forget you need to wash rice, if you're eating loads of it especially.

    My mother has a very similar issue with grains. Wheat and corn are the worst for her, I believe.

    I had my T levels checked in 2016 and 2018 at age 25 and 27. I started to notice my food allergies in mid 2018. My results were:
    2016 free T 149 ng/dl and total 581
    2018 free T 94 ng/dl and total 497
    I also began hypothyroid treatment in 2018 and have been taking it ever since.

    Iíve only been eating brown rice actually, but I will give quinoa a try as well. Thanks for the response.

    Will do, I need to be more strict about it because it doesnít seem as simple as only gluten unfortunately. I tried some steel cut oats and felt fine so that and sweet potatoes could be a good source. I also am going to try quinoa as Sebastian recommended.
