Could I be wheat intolerance? Can eat reduced wheat rye bread but get stomach pain and gas when I eat white or whole wheat products?

In brief: Possibly yes.

The symptoms you describe sound like you could be sensitive to gluten, a protein that's found in wheat, rye, barley and oats.
I can't explain why you can tolerate wheat rye but not white or whole wheat products. They all contain gluten. Your symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. Meanwhile eat only gluten free grains (corn and rice) and tell your doctor if that reduces your symptoms.
