For those of you that have been recovering for some time, I was wondering which symptoms or side effects resolved first and in what order? For me its been six weeks mostly gluten free until I wised up and am now %100 free.

The sore joints, brain fog, sneezing, and itching slowly went away, but I still have the bloating and indigestion, and still not losing weight in spite of diet and exercise. Maybe that doesn't happen until the villi grow back and the thyroid heals? Thanks for your thoughts!

For me it was the brain fog and headaches. I'm at almost 7 months and I still have bloating and D...not every day all day anymore...but it's still there.

As I recall, you told us you do not have Celiac Disease. Blunted villi  occurs in Celiac Disease

not NCGS.

 

The "mostly gluten free" diet will not yield any results for anyone (C D or NCGS).

 

Now that you are 100% G F, give it some time. Everybody is different so it is impossible to compare

"symptom resolution". It took me almost 15 months before I felt like I was coming around, but I went undiagnosed for decades.

I've heard those with NCGS can heal faster than some celiacs.  :)  I hope you have a speedy recovery!

 

For me, my first improvements was with stomach pain after eating and bloating.  That started to get better after a few days.  My migraines improved too (until I hit some sort of withdrawal and they came back even harder for a week).  It took a few months for my hair loss to stop and my plantar fasciitis to improve.

 

To this day, I still get arthralgias - I'm still waiting on that.  ;) LOL

Went away early:  plantar fasheitis pain. That got worse at 1 week gluten free.  Than it went away and stayed away for two years so far.

For me everything buyt the bloating started healing quickly.  My migraines and bleeding disordere were gone within several weeks.  Fatigue was gone quickly as well.

Hi Irishheart

No I have not had a test done to totally confirm celiac-my doc pooh-poohs the idea. He is very old school, and believes my weight problems and sore muscles, are a result of overeating and lack of exercise. I wish he could see me eat 1500 calories a day and run 20 minutes a day  on my treadmill! He also diagnosed me with adult A.D.D., and has me on welbutrin, but the mental issues have cleared up as well. Honestly,the internet and this forum has been so helpful. Keep up the good work!
