I have been gluten free for 1 1/2 yrs now and still get really severe pain. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. For example I have even gone so far as to get my own toaster, never be in the same room as gluten, read every label etc.
The pain is nearly all the time now, so I figure that some other foods might be affecting me, from perhaps the intestinal dammage I prob have from years of eating gluten?
Any ideas would be great!
Thanks :)

You didn't say where the pain is, or what kind of pain. It would be helpful to know :)

What is your diet like-(in detail)-cosmetics, medications, everything that goes into your mouth?
Are you lactose intolerant?
I had the same problems up til last summer (I've been diagnosed for a little over 2 years now), but a diet change helped significantly.

I had a pain in my right side for a year after going gluten-free. My GI doc
thought it was gallbladder pain but all of the scans, ultrasounds,etc
came back showing a normally functioning gallbladder, they even
suspected a spasm in the common duct, but an upper GI ruled
out that, but did reveal severe reflux which was confirmed with
the endoscopy. I have been on Nexium for quite a while and the
pain just gradually went away. When I had the pain it went around
the right side and into my back. I think it was from gluten and it
took that long for the damage to heal. Hope you feel better, it
does get better. ;)

The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

I have weird pain in my right side since going gluten-free, too! How odd; I've been worried that it was something serious buy my doctors have not wanted to do any tests.
I feel a little better after reading your post, thanks!
Check your diet, like the others said. You could be lactose intolerant OR corn or other food allergies could be making you sick. I went off dairy and felt even better immediately. Then I went off corn and it got even better; I think it's all a matter of eliminating foods until you feel better.
There are ways to be creative with cooking; you can still eat things that taste good.
