Hello, and welcome to the board!

According to what many here are saying, relief can come in days, weeks, months, or longer. It depends on the severity of the damage, and many other factors which vary greatly from person to person.

Some report near full recovery in a short time. For me it has been about a year or more now, and I'm just begining to see improvement. That is to say, my symptoms are definitely less severe, but different now. As many others have found, I am experiencing other sensitivities which I had not before. Apparently it is quite common to become lactose intolerant, casein intolerant, and also to develope a sensitivity to soy, eggs, nuts, corn, and more.

Hope you feel better soon. I'm sure you will find this site and the members here to be a wealth of valuable information. I certainly have.

To be totally on your road to recovery, you must check your shampoos, lotions, lipsticks/shaving cream, soaps. Remember, gluten is in everything you come across during the course of the day. Anything that has potential to come into contact with your mouth.

If you need so initial product suggestion, please post back, and we will offer some.

What are your other symptions?

How long have you been on the gluten-free diet? Have you noticed any positive changes so far? I didn't start to feel better until the 4th. month gluten-free. I had pretty severe gastro. problems, though. How long is an individual thing--a lot depends on how long you've been sick, your symptoms, etc. Are you sure that you're 100% gluten-free? Maybe if you told us a little more about your situation, we could offer more specific suggestions :)

:( Here's my full symptoms, of which I've had for over 15 years.

Allergies,
Post nasal drip,
Stiff joints,
Fatigue,
Low energy,
Anxiety,
Depression,
white spots on figure nails
phlegm in back of throat.
Problems gaining weight. I'm 6'1 and weight 175 lbs. I eat 3 square meals a day plus protein shakes.

My Dad and brother back in England have nasal drip also

Symptoms are worse after drinking beer!!

I've stopped beer,bread,wheat yeast etc. Diet now consists of brown rice, meat,veg, potato, water, coffea,fruit . I switched toothpaste to colgate total. I've stopped taking my protein shake EAS whey as I feel dairy is also a big prob and not sure if gluten is in it. I've tried allergy meds, visited ENT, taken anti depessants -no treatments help me :angry: .

M-m-m--How long have you been gluten-free? Like I said, the time it takes to feel a difference varies. I would think a few weeks would at least give an indication that it was working. You have seen an ENT--have you been seen by a Gastroenterologist? You didn't mention any gastro. symptoms--are you noticing any difference in that area?

Don't really have any gastro symptoms, except real bad flatulence if I eat oats :) The ENT said nothing was wrong, tried allergy specialist but they could not provide relief. I'm hoping its the gluten so then I have a solution.
