What are symptoms of wheat allergy?

Gluten sensitivities: Wheat or gluten sensitivities include a wide spectrum of presentations from well-defined celiac disease to other vaguely defined conditions like ibs-like symptoms, and problems outside of the gut like gluten ataxia or peripheral neuropathy. Since it is complicated, a good history taken by your physician with supporting tests might me helpful to tell if you have sensitivities or allergy to wheat.
