So the very first time I went gluten free was the best week of my life. I felt energised, happy, motivated and so so HEALTHY.
Then, my doctor told me I had to eat gluten prior to my endoscopy, so I ate pastas, bread, pies etc. three meals a day for five days prior to my operation. I'm really angry with my doctor because I didn't realise that I wouldn't have to do that if I was planning on getting the endoscopy within three months (because it takes that long for any damage to heal).
Anyway, I get diagnosed with Celiac Disease and go back to my gluten free diet. It has nearly been two months since then, and there has been no improvement whatsoever. I'm back to being moody, depressed, unmotivated, weak, tired, bloated, farty, pimply, and I even have issues that I never had before like extreme diarrhea.
Has anyone had any experience with going on a gluten challenge after initially being gluten free? I think it's a bit different to being glutened, because usually when you get glutened it's just a small amount so you recover quite quickly. But what about when you purposefully ingest a large amount of gluten over five days? When can I expect to feel better??? Please reply
