I just found out 3 months ago that I have a high allergy to wheat. I know Celiac Disease and wheat allergies are different but does anybody know how long it takes to feel better from a wheat allergy??
I have been gluten free/wheat free for about 3 months with barely any improvement =/ feelin a little discouraged so replies would be awesome!
Thanks for listening and I hope this works!

I am 3.5 months in and things are definitely better (less pain, less brain fog, insomnia improving, less aching joints) but I'm far from 100%. Also, it hasn't been a steady improvement -- at the beginning I'd have a good day and then go back to feeling awful, I felt like I was all over the place and wondering if I was glutening myself without realizing it.
It's been 8 weeks for me as of yesterday and the only differences I have noticed so far are that my swelling/bloating has gone down a lot, I feel a bit more alert and not as exhausted and I'm not getting the migraines anymore. My eczema is flaring up again though as is my depression. I'm hoping it's just whatever's toxicity that is still in me working its way out. Trying to remain patient, it's only been two months for me!

I started feeling better within a few days. Much better in 2 weeks.
Gluten is like smacking yourself in the head with a ball peen hammer: it feels so good when you stop.

Thank you everyone for the input! Today was my first day eating gluten-free and i didnt feel sick today. Hopefully a sign of good things to come.
I hope you heal faster than I have. Its taken me more than a year to settle down and I am dealing with the residual affects such as loss of bone density, reflux and a sluggish gall bladder... I am at least tolerant of dairy again after 18 mos gluten free.
