Could you please describe the diet you've been following? What exactly do you eat during the day? Perhaps that would shed some light on this mystery, and I know that many of us here would like to help you. Also, what supplements are you taking?
Before the pain...
breakfast: typically (1) grits with fruit, (2) gluten free waffles, cottage cheese, fruit, or (3) rice chex with almond milk
lunch: (1) salad - spinach/greens, (2) Amy's gluten free frozen vegetarian meal, or (3) gluten free rice wrap, mushroom/rice patty, spinach & veggies
dinner: (1) salad - spinach/green, (2) Amy's gluten free frozen vegetarian meal, or (3) rice/vege pasta salad
snacks: Greek yogurt, home-made gluten free ice cream, Larabar bars, fruit
drinks: water, almond milk, chai tea w/ almond milk, iced tea
Supplements: vitamin D, multi-vitamin
Doctor didn't even give me a plan to follow. Most of the info I have is from celiac.com, books or other website information. I saw a nutritionist who knew much less than me.

Were the gluten-free waffles Van brand? If so, they use soy flour (which is crazy if they're trying to target the celiac population). Amy's tends to use a lot of soy in their products. too.
I noticed that you are depending rather strongly on gluten-free processed foods. This is very common for newly diagnosed celiacs; however, it's not the best approach for healing. Processed foods contain a lot of stuff that can make you feel ill (such as xanthan gum, guar gum, soy, etc.). Therefore, we generally advise newly diagnosed folks to eat only natural foods; e.g., fruits, vegetables, rice, potatoes, nuts and nut butters, meat, and dairy (if tolerated). There are easy casseroles that can be prepared in a slow cooker that can feed you for several days. Simply augment with a salad with oil and vinegar, a potato, or gluten-free pasta. It's very important to consume healthy fats, too, because they'll help you digest fat-soluble vitamins. Nuts, nut butters, and avocados will help you in that regard.
Hope you start feeling better soon!

Or, you simply have not healed enough.
Keep a food diary and see when the symptoms are the worst.
Also, I can't do gluten free grains, processed gluten free foods. I stick to whole foods, it helps many people.
