We have to make a distinction here between a food allergy and an intolerance/absorption problem. The later may get better once the gut heals but the former most likely not. See: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/food-allergy/AN01109 (more)

As far as I know, seaweed doesn't have gluten. So most likely cross contamination, or seasoning. Are you using any seasoning? Is the seaweed seasoned? What brand is it?

I think it all comes back to gut health. I'd argue that it's harder to have a healthy gut on a veg*n diet, thus any deleterious effects from gluten consumption are going to be all the more pronounced. Heal the gut, gluten intolerance disappears. (more)

It could take two hours or two weeks. It really depends on the dosage and your own body. Have you noticed the stabbing pains a few days after consuming any other foods?
