As far as the fatigue goes, I have not found anything that helps with it. Right now, I rest when I need to and try not to overdo it. However when your daughter comes off Gluten she should feel a difference within a couple of days and it can take up to months to feel 100% better.
You can put your daughter on a gluten-free diet at any time but if your GI wants to run blood work or other tests she MUST be on gluten for it to come back accurate. There is another option for you which is Enterolab they perform a stool panel test which is more sensitive than the blood and a lot more accurate and you DO NOT have to be on gluten!!
I know how you must feel my 8 year old has had problems since she was a baby and after I was diagnosed with celiac disease I had her tested through Enterolab and she has it also. After being gluten-free since Sept we are both feeling better, she seems to have more energy and does not complain of abdominal pain!
Hang in there!
