Doesn't look very convincing. Where do I go from here?

This sounds VERY convincing to me:
"Feeling better since being off gluten. It's only been a week."
Continue to live gluten free - many times the test of removing gluten is far more accurate than any medical test.
Make sure you remove ALL gluten - it can be hidden in many, many foods.
Clean kitchen of all gluten - replace toaster, cutting boards, anything that can't be completely cleaned. Replace food items that could have been contaminated by gluten before you started the diet - such as mayo, peanut butter, etc.

The transition can be a tough one - this site is the best resource to ask questions/get support.
Make note of any changes in symptoms - sometimes you'll find something improving that you didn't even think was a problem.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
