Been gluten-free for about 3 months.
When I first started the gluten-free diet I got so sick (extreme nausea) I had to be taken to emergency (I've been there 4 times since than).
Ever since than I've been feeling sicker everyday.
The doctor put me on Zofran (anti-emetic) just so I can eat .
Is it normal to take this long to feel better? I'm thinking about giving up the gluten-free diet just because I feel so sick.

Someone please tell me if this is normal.

Normal to take weeks or months to get fully better...but your symptoms should be getting better with each day, not worse. A nutritionist told me that your symptoms can get worse (as you say your symptoms have) before they get better. I always thought I had it bad, but not nearly as bad as you have. I had been w/o symptoms for the past two weeks (a record), but felt sick last night, slept little, and threw up this morning. Good luck.

This is not normal. You might have celiac disease but there's obviously something else going on.

Thanks for your help.
My doctor told me she's going to hospitalize me to get a lot more tests done.
They think I might also have Colitis or intestinal spasms.
Hope they can help me.
Thanks again.
