Normal.  I never had withdrawal symptoms.  Everyone is different.  

Do you have celiac disease?  If not, you might want to think about going back on gluten and getting a simple blood test ASAP.  All celiac disease testing requires you  to be on a full gluten diet.  But, with the pandemic, you might need to postpone a diagnosis and later consider a gluten challenge depending on your circumstances.

Going gluten free is not harmful, however, please consider real food.  Too often people switch from a standard diet full of junk food to a gluten free version.  Avoid eating out and no oats for the first six months as some celiacs react to oats.  Keep a journal as it is common for celiacs or those with Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity to have additional food allergies or intolerances. The most common is dairy.  

If you have any questions about the diet, please ask!

yeah so you clearly went from an unhealthy diet to a healthy one. the fact that you cut gluten may not be the reason you're feeling better. I did the same thing multiple times before diagnoses though, would drink like a pound of spinach daily

I'm just happy to be feeling healthier I'm digesting my food better also my thyroid was really enlarged and so much better now

This fairly recent study suggests that a gluten free diet could help those with thyroid antibodies.  The important thing is feeling well!  ?

You could have other food sensitivities besides gluten. A lot of people do.... An example would be going dairy or grain free. There are also high-antioxidant diets and vitamins that could try. Some people don't feel great or get withdrawal symptoms when they go gluten free. If you feel better on a gluten free diet I wouldn't expect that to change. If it does change, and you start to feel bad again, I would look cross contamination problems or talk to a doctor or see if it is connected to a food sensitivity. 


Wheat sensitive. Probably Celiac disease but it could be an allergic response. I get very strong anxiety and then autistic symptoms whenever I eat wheat. It is probably a form of encephalitis (swelling in the brain due to wheat) but I am not sure.  Things that I avoid: All grain, alcohol, eggs, dairy, processed food.
