Patience and eliminate all dairy (even in your supplements/probiotics) until you heal more. Of course stay away from gluten forever!


Yar, good point on the probiotics. I had come to that conclusion about dairy but wasn't thinking about the probiotic - or else was hoping the dose would not be big enough to matter. Maybe that's why I'm hurting so much today.

You will be running again soon. Listen to your body and allow it to heal. It took me about six weeks to see any results and then I suffered a back fracture thanks to celiac disease. A few months later and I was back on the trails. Riding a new comfort bike too. Looking forward to riding my road bike soon!

Have patience!

Thanks!  I am so sorry for your back fracture but glad to hear you are back in action - congrats on the new bike!


Grrr, patience. I'm short on it. :)  I know it's good advice, though.

2 1/2 weeks isn't very long. Most folks see SOME improvement by then, but I don't know of many who see complete resolution of symptoms that early. As a matter of fact, for most of us the withdrawal symptoms last a couple of weeks. Give it more time. :)



Waugh! I hope so. I am so depressed, anxious, and frustrated. A month before the gastroenteritis set me off, I could run five miles. Today I shambled a quarter-mile on the treadmill before I had to stop - not from lack of energy, but because the impact of every step jarred my guts and caused too much pain to bear! (Besides, I typically take that kind of pain as my body's sign that I am Doing Something Wrong.)  I am getting my energy back enough to really want to run - and having sleep problems and jitters with the anxiety, so I'd really like to burn some of that energy off and rest better at night. But so far, my guts aren't cooperating.


Come on, healing. Soon please. :(

Drat. Thanks, bartfull!  I just checked the ingredients in my cats' food and the third ingredient is "cracked pearled barley."  As much of a hassle as it's going to be, I'm going to have to transition them to a gluten-free cat food, because they are in my face all the time. One of them practically sleeps on my head.

I understand this entirely, tallypop! My doctor's first "diagnosis" for my abdominal pain was IBS, and they would not see or treat me again for a month and a half of agony. Then they did a biopsy and found lymphocytes in my small intestinal tissue, which is why I'm currently being tested for celiac. The endoscopy/biopsy would not have happened if I hadn't kept pushing for another look, so don't give up! And if your doctor is reluctant to consider other possibilities, it is ALWAYS okay to seek a second opinion.


Good luck!


Thank you so much for your comments, I know I shouldn't self diagnose but its hard not to when your doctor says you have ibs... I ate pasta and garlic bread last night, this morning I have a lot of stomach pain had to rush to the toilet and I woke up in the night with hip pain/leg aches.

I will post the reverence ranges later today,I going to start a food diary as well I think.
