I'm another g-f runner - I was going to say contact Bookie, but she's already been in touch - she more than most on here will be able to help you for the reasons she's given.
As you say, the NHS just doesn't get running and I'd seriously question some of the dietary advice that I've been given.
It takes a while for your system to adjust, so if you're not training for anything specific, carry on, but don't push yourself.
I don't really like the g-f pasta, think it tastes like cardboard, but don't fancy rice all the time as a substitute. I think it sounds as if you're diet is just a tad unbalanced, I had the same symptoms when I was diagnosed, along with the symptoms of anaemia, which, if your diet is recent, may still affect you.
I'm also lactose intolerant which has a range of other, different symptoms. I use rice milk, soya yoghurt and can tolerate small amounts of sheep / goat cheese. I get a lot of carbs from fruit and veg, I have a juicer and make a lot of my own juices too. I also have a breadmaker and make bread in that, using a g-f bread recipe book. I try not to eat too much though and just make sure that I get a good mix of protein and carbs throughout the week.
As you say, there are lots of hidden sources of gluten - reading the packaging is a nightmare - so you might still be inadvertently ingesting some.
If you're interested in book titles etc, let me know.
