Hi, I am new to this site but have already found several threads that were very helpful. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 8 months ago and have been gluten free since. I have had moderate to severe stomach problems for many years and have possibly had this since I was a teen. I have been dairy free for most of this time and also went to a food allergist to find out if there were additional foods I should be avoiding. Just about every food I normally eat came up positive. I eliminated all of them and then introduced them gradually. But I do not feel any better than since before I went gluten free. I get extremely bad stomach pains, diarrhea and constipation, intense muscle pains, fatigue, etc. Also, I normally get flare ups, that's what I call it when my symptoms get much worse and I can hardly get out of bed, at least once a month. Wondering if anyone else is going through this and if they have found relief?

You may still be healing , for some it can take up to two years or even more. After five years a few still have problems.Plus please check to make sure you are not getting CC by kitchen utensils,hidden gluten,pet food...you may be just a very sensitive celiac that can not eat out in restaurants, use gluten-free foods that are not made in a dedicated place.. You may to go to a very strict food regime of plain meats, fruits, veggies, fish & no gluten-free processed foods to see if that brings more relief..

Another suggestion would be to get a massive blood work-up & be checked for other issues, gallbladder, crohn's, etc.
Do you take digestive enzymes & probiotics? They to may be a big help...Sometimes our gut just needs more help because it doesn't have enough gastric juices to more the food into a digested state ...

Thanks for your advice. Greatly appreciated. I do take Ultimate Flora Critical Care probiotic. Is there a specific enzyme supplement that anyone has had success with?

Gluten Flam really helps my daughter. We ran out and forgot to get more, and boy did she start feeling bad. Got much better 4 days after re-starting it. Good luck!
