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
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!
