I have gotten severe migraines since I was a teenager. We could never figure out what caused them. They would last days at a time. Now that is one of the things that happens when I have been glutened. I think those were my first signs of celiacs. Just my opinion.

The stomach pain is often the symptom that resolves fastest. I to get fatigued, cranky, achy, migraines, constipated, bloated, and I swear my IQ drops, but that could be the fatigue. I even lose hair.
There are over 300 symptoms of celiac disease... It's amazing how the symptoms can manifest!

Yes. So many symptoms beside the gastro.
My immediate symptoms are brain fog and a "heaviness" in my legs. And those occur within a few hours.
After that, it's water retention/bloating, constipation, fatigue, no sex drive, mild aches in my joints, and irritability. If the glutening was bad, all of that can get bad but the fatigue in particular will be bad. Depending on the severity, symptoms last from 3-7 days.
While it's all unpleasant, the fatigue seems the worst part of it. I hate that feeling.

Some celiacs can't gain weight if they tried, some of them have pretty damaged stomachs that take sometimes years to heal. I was diagnosed over a year ago and have lost 40 pounds since, can't keep weight on to save my soul. I don't get a lot of stomach issues when I'm glutened, it's all mostly neurological for me, headaches, brain fog, moodiness/anxiety, muscle/joint aches and pains, nerve pain.
