Don't go gluten-free if you are going to be tested.

There is no set time frame for recovery.
Some people feel great at 6 months, some take years.
Stay on gluten for testing, otherwise, you'll get unreliable and invalid results.
(is there an echo in here? )
It is hard to stay patient when you feel so lousy (believe me, I know!) but it gets better and better as the months pass and your body starts to heal.
Hang in there! and welcome to the forum.
