Diagnosed with Celiac Disease and Still Sick

I was diagnosed about 5 months ago with celiac disease by blood test and endoscopy. Looking for supportive community and knowledgeable people for help.
My thing is I have been getting very nauseous for about a month now. My GI doc thinks it is because I still have gluten in my system (the number being 10 still). Prior to being diagnosed nausea wasn't the problem. It was bloating, cramps, bowel issues, migraines (side note: migraines are gone!). But now I am nauseous daily. I had bloodwork and an ultrasound done for gall stones, liver and pancreas and all was fine. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat. It is usually after lunch, and I normally eat salad, meat and veggies, banana and almonds. Today I had no lunch and had coffee with milk and I suffering bad with nausea, sweating and headaches. I don't seem to have trouble with milk but maybe I do.
I am just wondering what other celiacs would have to say. I am committed to doing this, I just wish I would start feeling better. Any advice is appreciated.
