and it is gone. for 3 days running! this is, like, the eight thousanth painful/uncomfortable/annoying/freaky thing that has gone away. i didn't even know i had it! and neck pain has been soooo much better. it's amazing what you can learn to live with as 'normal' :( also, 'baby hair' growing back on my head (you know, that little layer of new hair...! ) also, got a cold and my BODY fought it OFF instead of having it turn into pneumonia. i am so scared to be hopeful if anybody can relate to that. could this be my new deal??????? feeling awesome??????? not freezing to death in 60 degree weather? what??

i feel like i am shedding layers of sludge. i am afraid this is too good to be real?

Those are my sentiments exactly. And the perma-headache... I had that, too. It was the first thing that went away and I thought, WOW! There's hope that I might actually feel better one day.

:) Love your post.

    • That sounds so scary Ennis! 6ppm is not what anyone would expect to cause issues. Please keep us updated on how you are doing.
    • Sounds great, thanks ennis! 
    • Emma, please post falafel recipe! And how you eat it ! I've been searching for a good recipe for a long time. 
    • Did you have the celiac blood work panel? did they do biopsies during the endoscopy? Damage sometimes doesn't show up until they put a biopsy under a microscope. they can't just look at your insides and tell whether or not you have celiac.   
    • Don't be worried! Cutting out gluten completely is all you need to do. Many people see their doctors regularly to monitor vitamin and iron levels, and repeat some of the celiac testing to show how well they are doing. I personally had many symptoms, and it took about 2 months for them to all go away. For some it takes longer as the learning curve is steep for the diet. Gluten is hidden in many foods, and learning what it's called can take a while. So is eating out... you will have to learn what to ask when you eat out, and they make mistakes with cross contamination in restaurants a lot. You'll have to learn who to trust. but most people will recommend to eating Whole Foods and not eating out for the first 6 months to heal your body faster. Just because you only have bloating doesn't mean there isn't damage inside your body.  Oh yes, milk is something you might be intolerant to for 6 to 12 months. Your inside damage can make it so you can't digest and absorb it properly, at least the protein in milk, and it definitely can cause bloating amongst other things. Wecome to the board! There is a newbie section that can explain all this and much more. This site is like a godsend to celiac sufferers. Ps keep eating gluten! Your gi is probably going to order a test to check your upper insides, so you need to keep eating it in order to have the damage to show. You don't want to heal first then do the test. Sounds stupid I know!
