I have "tried" to be gluten free for six months and I still have symptoms. I am very concerned about venturing too far out of town and plan my ventures where I know there is a bathroom close by.

It take quite a long time to heal. Even though you have stared on the gluten free diet, your intestines need a great deal of time to heal because of the damage done to the villi. Make sure that you are taking vitamines that are gluten free. If you have fatique that most of us have had a B-12 injection would be a good thing. Better yet, a full blood panel would be helpful to know where your difficencies (sp?). A body out of wack can do strange things to you. I would suggest that, if you have not already done so.

Also have you check your shampoos, soap, creams that can get into your mouth.?

I expect that my recovery will take about a year. I am learning and will learn more and as I learn more, I will heal more, with the help of my friends here.

Take a deep breath and relax. :)

I did not feel better until after 6 months on the gluten-free diet. It really does take a long time to heal. It is so worth it once you feel better. Hang in there. You are doing the right thing.

It took me about two weeks to know what being glutened meant. I used to feel like that all the time so I didn't realize that there would be a time when I only felt like that if I ate gluten. I also didn't realize all the symptoms I had until they all went away and the only thing I eliminated was gluten.

I believe people have posted it may take 6 mths to 1 1/2 years to heal completely, but I would think you would feel somewhat better sooner.

Keep up the diet and things will get better!

I have been on a gluten-free diet for about a week and it has been really hard. Finding out that even though I think I am doing the right things, I am still ingesting Gluten via Cross-Contamination (CC). I spent 3 days in row eating something with Amy's Salsa and even though it says it is gluten-free and there is NO allergen warning, I was apparently glutening myself. That was after I had some help from my step-daughter who is a Celiac. So now the third day and I feel horrible. Thinking I should be feeling better.

But at least the bloating has gotten better, not the burning chest and back. And feeling like I could sleep for days.........

Frustrating in the beginning.
