Does Gluten Intolerance Get Worse With Time?

I'm just wondering as you get older if the issue(s) get worse. I have had GI issues since youth, but I never dealt with ulcers until the last few years. I know that someone with actual celiac does have continual damage over time if they eat gluten, but do the other symptoms get worse/new symptoms appear over time?

My experience was that things do get progressively worse over time.

I can look back at my 20's, 30's and 40's and see progressively worse symptoms that characterized each decade. That would seem to make sense. Symptoms other than the basic ones (gas, bloating and D) result from either poor or malnutrition and take time to develop. As a celiac goes from months to years to decades of progressive internal damage, the results would be expected to get worse.

Can you give me an idea of how long you have been off gluten and how you feel/have recovered?

Is it possible that it because our guts have started to heal and a glutening causes new damage? I know I have worse symptoms now when I get glutened than before I was diagnosed. The gluten was in my system so the symptoms were ongoing and didn't seem as severe. Just what my thought has been on this.
