Unhappy GLUTEN-FREE diet & misery...Help!

I have recently been put on the gluten free diet [as well as dairy free] and I'm still trying to get the hang of it. I'm not eating perfectly but I've had a miserable time so far - lots of stomach cramping and even some diarrhea the last few days. I'm feeling so discouraged because these are they symptoms I was trying to get rid of in the first place!

What I'm wondering are if some of the ingredients in the gluten-free foods that I'm eating are going to cause some of this stomach discomfort? I've eaten a lot of the gluten free crackers, cookies, and breads to replace their counterparts that I love so much. Has anyone had a similar experience when changing their diet over or am I alone here????
