Hi,

I had been on a gluten-free diet for a year, since I was suspected but not officially diagnosed as having Celiac Disease by my alternative physician. Once going onto the gluten-free diet I felt a lot better, most of my symptoms had went away. But, recently my doctor wanted to do a gluten challenge to see if I truly had Celiac Disease. So, I had been back on gluten for 1 1/2 months and I didn't notice any symptoms. I was so glad because I thought that I had been misdiagnosed, but now it's been just about 2 months and within the past 2 weeks, I have had horrible stomach pains, pale stools, diarhhea, dark circles under my eyes, pale (flushed) complexion, tooth discoloration, headaches, bone and joint pain, etc. Basically, all of my Celiac symptoms have come back.

I'm confused because I thought that I would have noticed these symptoms within a week or two not almost 2 months! Has this happened to anyone else? Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

I've heard of people going back on gluten and not experiencing symptoms for more than a year. It can also take some people many years to produce enough damage in their intestines to be accurately diagnosed via biopsy. If you plan on being blood tested, it might take a while for the antibodies being produced in your intestines to leak into your blood stream as well.

Sorry to hear that you are having symptoms though. But of all the diseases in the world Celiac is certainly not one of the worst to have, at least not once you know you have it and are able to fix it by changing your diet! :D And besides eating gluten free is a quite healthy way to eat, as long as you don't eat too many gluten-free treats ! ;)

God bless,

Mariann

Thanks for the help. You're right, celiac disease is definately not the worst thing to have since it is treatable on gluten-free diet.
