  1. I have had a very similar experience to yours. Previously to my celiac disease diagnosis, I had mild abdominal cramping and a little bit of occasional nausea and fatigue, but that was it. I ended up getting tested for celiac because I also had mucose in my stool which I guess is a sign of inflammation. I have now been gluten free for 2 and a half months and things definitely seem to be getting worse before they get better. I now have new symptoms similar to the ones you mentioned like lightheadedness, and one episode of passing out, extreme nausea and fatigue hopefully this is all part of the healing process!
  2. I have been gluten free since I was diagnosed 10 weeks ago. I have noticed a slight improvement in some of my symptoms but other symptoms seem to be staying the same or maybe even getting worst. I have also had the worst nausea almost every single time I eat for the past month. Does this sound like a normal part of the healing process? I am getting so discouraged, I have been eating so carefully and feel like I am getting further and further away from my old self. Any advice or encouragement would be much appreciated!
  3. So I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease exactly a month ago today through blood work and biopsy. I have been on a strict gluten-free diet ever since, I have only eaten food I have cooked myself, and I am sure I have not had any sort of cross-contamination problems. I have also been avoiding dairy and oats. The vast majority of my diet is fruits, veggies, gluten-free whole grains, beans, legumes, and nuts. I have been a little discouraged because it seems like everywhere I read everyone says they started feeling at least a little better within a few weeks. I am 1 month in and I don't really see any improvement, maybe more energy but that's about it. I am still having a lot of GI symptoms like nausea, cramping, and gas pains, particularly at night time. I am wondering if it is normal to still have so many GI issues after being gluten-free for a month? How long did it take you for your GI symptoms to resolve?
