The rule of thumb, once a Celiac, always a Celiac.

How were you tested for Celiac? You should not go gluten free until all Celiac testing is completed.

Did you ever have your thyroid checked?

Allergy testing?

Start keeping a food journal.

My Celiac's test was bloods and so was the Sjogrens tests.

I have had thyroid checked - all good.

Had allergy testing - NOTHING. Tests where also bloods.

I have been Gluten free for neally a week now and have already noticed some improvement, which makes me very happy.

Am planning on keeping food diary as I'm sure I will get the Gluten free thing wrong in the initial stages. This may help me also if I have any other good issues.

Any additional advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks heaps

Karen

Why is sleeping a problem? Insomnia? Try taking some sublingual vitamin B12. Or is it painful to lie down?

If your symptoms don't start getting better, and it could take 2 years to feel perfect, you may have to get an endoscopy with biopsy. So keep looking for a doctor that listens to you.
