Here is what you can count on: Strict removal of gluten - including removing any possible cross-contamination - will bring / restore health.
Hang in there - read as much as you can
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Yes, as Lisa said there is a lot of variation. Some symptoms are gone almost immediately and others take a few years to completely heal... the majority of symptoms disappearing somewhere in between.
Personally, I had some symptoms (mostly gastro) disappear within days, and then my joint pain took over 6 months to go. I'm still waiting to see if anything else will get better. lol
