Well that depends-I guess for some felling better starts as soon as they stop eating Gluten. For others it may take 3 months,6 months,a year, maybe longer.

"I feel terrible like I have the flu and I hurt all over does this sound like others w/
celiac? "

Kinda sounds like me :)


I've been gluten-free for 8-9 months with a few accidents and my stomach feels much better.I use to feel like I HAD the Flu but now I just feel like I'm Getting the Flu.I can function and do my normal thing in life i just feel achy and run down most of the time. I have other problems that may be making this worse for me but, who knows. Comparing where I was a year ago I'm at least 50% better off. I was very sick.

So being gluten-free is worth it but it may take sometime to get the full benefits.

Hope you feel better soon. :D

Suzanne,
I went gluten free about 3 months ago now. And finally I thinnk my stomach is normal. but at first it still killed even though gluten free.
I was dxed with fibromyalgia, 7 yrs ago. It got horrible, I needed a wheel chair, couldnt work, couldnt do mostly anything but lay there. I was also on 11 different meds a day.
Someone on the web told me to try cutting out all meat..... Finally, when I got so bad, I gave it a try. Within two weeks of, I became vegan, I was off all medicines, now i walk, workout, can hold a job, etc...... I got my life back.
So Im saying if you have fibro give giving up meat a try.....but you have to read everything, which is easy really if your already gluten-free.
Im convinced it is something they inject in animals that really made me sick, and they call it fibromyalgia.

My mother in law has fibromyalgia and the hurt all over part is probably that. The flu symptoms are probably more celiac disease than Fibromyalgia, but could be both. It'll take a few weeks to get used to the feelings associated with celiac disease, but after a few months of the diet you shouldn't feel flu like anymore, but again with the Fibromyalgia there's gonna be pain and you'll probably still feel lethargic pretty often. Did the same MD diagnose you w/ both conditions? If so he/she can probably give you a gluten free pain med to help w/ the fibro pain. Best of luck, I hope you feel better soon.

This diet can help with fibro but so can thyroid meds. Go to about.com and type in thyroid and read everything there. thyroid@yahoogroups.com is a good support group. Dr. John Lowe wrote a book about the connection between fibro/chronic fatigue and thyroid. Hope you feel better soon. ;) my muscles are doing better but not 100%. I'm taking several things but MSM in crystal form has helped. I also did guaifenesin at one point for a year and that helped me to start walking again. based on Dr. Paul R. St. Amands "What your doctor may not tell you about fibromyalgai". In fact I saw him in person. Take care
