Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

I went gluten free for 3 or 4 weeks, and now my reactions are terrible. I've spent almost a week now recovering from a stupid experiment that involved eating a muffin. I was bed-ridden with stomach cramps that prevented me from walking, terrible nausea, constipation, bloating, and I was on the verge of having panic attacks on my worst day. I felt like I was dying! The week was comparable to how ill I felt when I got swine flu, and that was no fun at all.
For some people, I think once your body knows what it's like to be free of a substance that is causing it damage, it REALLY lets you know if you're under attack again. Whereas before if you're eating daily doses of gluten there is no real time for your body to swing from recovering to being newly damaged again. If that makes any sense.

I think you'll find variation on this board, as always; however, I will say that when I was a couple of years in to being gluten free my reactions were off the charts and now, as I'm into my 6th year, they may be a tad less dramatic. That said, I am supremely sensitive to the evil gluten and, frankly, am afraid of it for the way it makes me feel.
Most veterans of this board, however, I suspect might gently advise you that there is a LOOOOooonnnng learning curve with gluten sensitivity and, typically, (again, with caveats...), it can certainly take up to a year or more gluten free to rout out other suspect sensitivities and isolate your true gluten response. Sorry if that sounds alarming and heinously arduous but... there it is. Some are lucky and find they have no other intolerances and can simply eliminate obvious gluten and be just swell. Sadly for many of us, that is just not the case and the detective work can take more time than we'd like!
Good luck and good health to you!
