I have been gluten free for about 6 days now and my stomach and bowels have felt fine. I have noticied that I am having a hard time sleeping at night. Is this a side effect of coming off the gluten? Is a blistery rash on your feet common with Celiacs? It too has cleared up since gluten-free.
I get tested on Sept 13th, so I won't know what I have for sure till then. I am going to go back on my gluten diet in a couple of days, as I don't want to show a negative on the test if I am in fact positive.
Any thoughts or suggestions? This site is a great thing as all your posts help to alleviate my anxieties over the possibility of having this.

Thanks so much,
Yankee

I don't know if sleep problems occur when coming off of gluten, but there is a sleep section here; it seems that sleep problems exist with celiacs, but I don't know if it's more common in celiacs than non-celiacs. I have heard of people having blistery rashes on their feet....I think there's a thread on this somewhere. Also, although you're feeling better, you should go on gluten for testing purposes....most docs. will say 2-4 months on gluten with 2 meals a day.........so you should get relatively glutened up for the test.
