Cysts Went Away!

I self-diagnosed gluten intolerance a year ago and went to a gluten-free diet. Gradually, all kinds of small irritations I had had but not connected to gluten went away. For years I had breast cysts and was getting an ultrasound every summer. Time came for this one. Guess what? No cysts! 13 months into going gluten-free I now have one thing which changed that is provable by lab report. This was not even something that I thought was related, but it must be one of those systemic inflammation things. Anyone else have such an experience?
Yes, most definitely.
I have had two lumps of tissue (I read that they are cysts) for about 25 years (about the same time as I was experiencing all these problems). They are now shrinking a lot. I expect them to go away within the year, I hope.
Inflammation can very systemic!!
Low on energy, with aches and pains in my joints and in my whole body for as long as I can remember.
Mostly lactose intolerant for all of my life (except for yoghurt)
Diagnosed in 2003 by naturapath as wheat intolerant. Tried it then fell of the wagon. In Feb. 2010 tried going gluten-free.
Went back to the poison in March, 2010.
Tested negative for celiac in April, 2010 (based on negative biopsy and normal tTG test). IgA tested 30-40 percent higher than normal.
Not going to fight the diagnosis because I refuse to go back to the poison. Happily gluten-free for health reasons as of April 2010, and not looking back.

Okay, don't want to rain on anyone's wonderful cyst-free happiness parade but, I had terrible fibrocystic breasts ALL of my life. They finally are not bothering me after being gluten-free for over 3 years. Just wanted to add that so people who may have been sick for a long time, prior to diagnosis would not get discouraged when they aren't "cured" quickly.
I was always getting called back for extra mammo films and ultrasounds, had four neg. biopsies; since gluten free 1 year have had no further callbacks.
