Because of possible cross-contamination, some grains (such as oats) are questionable and may or may not exacerbate your condition. You may have to experiment a little with oats before you know what your tolerance is for them.
The trick with cooking with gluten free grains lies in making the flours bind in a similar fashion to traditional wheat flours. You will most likely need to combine several different types of gluten free flours, perhaps with a gluten free binder such as arrowroot or tapioca or cassava flour. When several types of gluten free flours and binders are mixed together, you can bake breads, make pancakes and even bake desserts similar in taste and texture to those made with wheat flour.
