Started a Whole30 today, I have crohn's.
However, last week I was at a party and had some food I shouldn't have had. I had a few trips to the toilet/migraines/was feeling ill for a while which was expected. One other thing I've noticed is that for a day or two after eating gluten/sugar/wheat?, I develop some sort of skin sensitivity on my torso. It feels as if I am sun burned! It's on my upper arms too. I am going to see the doctor if I can't resolve it!
I notice that when I DO eat paleo approved foods, I get no skin pain/sensitivity. Another good reason to stay paleo.
Does anyone have similar experiences?

This is a classic glutening symptom I have seen countless time googling my on "glutening" symptoms. I guess it's just our incentive to distance ourselves from foods which make us feel yukky in this way. It affects everyone differently but skin symptoms are definitely one of the common things people mention.

Sounds like gluten/grain sensitivity to me.
