I felt like I had the flu for about 4 months before I started the gluten-free diet. I have now been on the gluten free diet for about 6 months and there are still days when I feel like I have the flu (like today for instance <_< )
I'm not sure why it feels like I have the flu but I hope it goes away for good someday.

How I felt was different day by day. I had great days with lots of energy and days that I felt the flu thing too. However, now that I am back on gluten for awhile (for testing) I can see how much better I felt while gluten-free. I am actually looking forward to going gluten-free again! Keep it up; cuz it will definately take time. Hope you feel better soon. :)

The same thing happened to my 15 year old. Prior to going gluten-free, he had "seasonal allergies." For almost the first two weeks of being on a gluten-free diet, he felt miserable (the symptoms seemed to become 100x worse, he really thought he'd caught something dreadful.) It cleared up as well as all his seasonal allergies, so have hope! Now, however, one of the first signs he has that he's eaten something is he starts to sneeze. Depending on how much, he'll develop that flu again.
