Which Symptoms Healed First?
0

7 posts in this topic

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!

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
