texmatt21 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Why The Symptom Rebound?Hi, I was confirmed celiac by blood test back in June of 2012 and the first few weeks gluten-free I felt AMAZING. I had more energy than I ever thought possible, my memory was razor sharp and the brain fog was finally gone. It was like I was awake and alive for the first time in my life and I LOVED it.
The good times didn't last though. A few weeks go by and I'm back to having no energy, depression, anxiety, the works, even though I'm sure I've been gluten free other than 5 or 6 slip ups. I have such a strong reaction to gluten, numbness and tingling in my hands, extreme fatigue so that I can't even move, migraines, bloating, etc that I feel like I would know if I was accidentally eating gluten. I get horrible symptoms from even the smallest amount of CC so I don't think it could be that.
My question is, why have my symptoms returned and not improved in the last six months even though I had such great results to start? I take probiotics every day, workout 3 times a week, and eat mostly whole foods with only the occasional bag of doritos. I know I'm lactose intolerant and avoid dairy, but I do drink Silk or lactaid. I haven't had my vitamins levels checked yet, but I think maybe I should.
Any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated. Hope is in short supply at the moment.

Just got diagnosed with celiac. In my doctor's words the results were "alarmingly high". I'd always wondered why my head was in a constant fog. I tried to go to a few doctors for it, even had an MRI and CT scan, of course they had no clue what it was and not once was celiac mentioned as a possible cause.
How is this not a bigger deal?! Why Why isn't food required to be labeled gluten free? I was the one who had to ask to be tested and my doctor acted like I was a nut when I did.
In case you can't see the pic here's the test results.
IgG 14.0 Flag range 0-6.1
IgA 19.0 Flag range 0-10.3
IgA antibody Positive
