This may be a naive question in the sense that maybe it's one of those things that's completely different for everyone but I'm hoping some of you can share your experiences with me. Quick background - I've been told I have IBS for about 12 years, always C-related but my bigger complaint is chronic pain, sometimes so bad that it just drains me. I've experimented with diet many times but have never tried eliminating wheat so I'm willing to give it a try. Never realized how many products have wheat in them! So my question is how long does it take on a wheat-free diet to see if it helps? Is it a matter of just a few days or a week or maybe longer? It seems at this point that it's going to be an extremely difficult experiment for me but I'm willing to give it a try if I think there's hope. Appreciate any comments you can offer.
