Glad to have found the forum.
I am 27 years old and have been having stomache pain since April 2014. I was diagnosed with Celiac from blood test on July 3rd, 2014. I realize I might still need to get a intestinal biopsy but my doctor said first that I needed to go completely gluten-free and take probiotics... (florastor)
So the very first week going gluten-free was like heaven. 2 days after going gluten-free I felt great. Stomach felt normal, etc... But after that first week my symptoms seem to come back full force and even worse. It is now July 22 and I am having very few good days. From reading other posts on here I realize this probably isn't a long enough time to determine anything if my gut is healing (I think I am one of the lucky ones because I never had stomach pain or any digestive issues prior to April 2014. I am hoping that means my gut isn't too badly damaged).
Did anyone else have a period of "amazing" right after going gluten-free and then it actually get worse?
The Big D and stomach pain are my two biggest things I am dealing with right now.
Does sugar/soda effect anyone else? I am really trying to determine what causes me to feel bad, but then again maybe it is too soon and I will just have good and bad days.
I have cut out soda for right now which is very hard since I work late into the night. But maybe that isn't the problem.
I have been eating some gluten-free products and a lot salads... I have been 100% gluten-free since July 4th. I am trying to go completely organic but baby steps.
I am starting a food journal to try and see if I can determine what causes worse days.
Any other advice?
