I don't know for sure. However, you could be intolerant and be attributing some issues to other things, or not know why they are. My gluten intolerance only noticably affected me during running. I had severe breathing problems while running. I accidentally found it was gluten when i was eating rice for a month on vacation, and i had no breathing problem. Came back home and again the breathing issues began.
However, there may be other issues too that gluten could be causing that I will only know if I stay off gluten for a month or more. Since my family is basically wheat eating, that's not proving possible.
