Foods with flour in them make me sick? Why?

When I eat anything containing wheat flour, I get extremely painful bloating, constipation, and pretty much every other gastrointestinal symptom you can imagine. I don't have Celiac's disease. There is increasing evidence that non-celiac's gluten intolerance does not exist. And I don't think it's gluten that's the problem. I've been diagnosed with IBS but I'm not even entirely convinced that IBS is legitimate either. It seemed like my doctor's last ditch effort to diagnose me with something.
Is there some other ingredient in flour that could be making me sick?

Yes, test for Celiac's came back negative. I saw a specialist at a university hospital. She seemed like one of the better doctors I've seen recently. Actually spent more than five minutes talking to me. But she's on a personal leave of absence right now.
