I suggest you first go to visit a gastroenterologist to get tested for coeliac disease and rule that out as CD has many complications if left untreated.
If alll scans and tests appears normal, there can be a few possibilities:
1. gluten sensitivity - where you don't have coeliac disease but sensitive to gluten containing foods including wheat, rye, barley and oat.
2. fructose and lactose malabsorption - foods that are high in fructose such as apples, pears, mango, honey and lactose such as milk, ice cream and yoghurt… along with this you might also be sensitive to sorbitol, mannitol and GOS from other fruit and vegetables. The test for this is hydrogran breathe test which is the nly test available for it. Food intolerance now a days is very common. Keep in mind that stress plays a big role in this too.
3. lacking in digestive enzymes or low in stomach acid. Unfortunutely there are no tests for this, it all depends on clinical signs and symptoms.
What I suggested above is a handful to deal with on your own. Seeing a dietitian specialise in the area can give you more guidance and support as figuring out which food you are sensitive / intolerance / allergic to can be a long process. Hope this help!
