Four to six weeks. It is positively awful, it's like being drunk for a month or more. I'm slurring words, bumping into things, losing my balance, can't carry on a conversation because I forget I was having one (sometimes mid sentence) and have the memory of a goldfish. That is without the pain and exhaustion. I think I'd rather be on the toilet for 6 weeks tyvm.

Somewhere in the area of a week - depending on how much gluten I ate - ie. cross contamination versus having a meal where the waitstaff erroneously told me it was gluten-free, the latter taking longer to get over.

For me, it also depends on what I do. My best plan is to eat very light, very safe (nothing that coud have any gluten), drink lots of water (lots), and rest. If I am feeling better, physical activity seems to help get me back on track. When I am "down" I also avoid all dairy and soy and graze because it almost seems to affect me like everything has gluten in it - my stomach gets pretty touchy.

Most of the time it's just a few days. Two times it's been about 3 weeks of pain pain pain. I think in those cases it was cumulative gluten over the course of days. Both times I was on trips out of the house.

Four to seven days, depending on the amount. When I did a mini-gluten challenge (small amount of pasta at one meal), it was more than a week.

Are you sure that you aren't confusing your glutening symptoms with plain old.... well old age? :P

Old? ME?! Well, yeah, I've got that. Or, I had that but I seem to have misplaced it. Um, what were we talking about anyway? :blink::lol:

I'm not sure I remember. One of those young whipper-snappers will be along shortly to get us back on track. :D (There is something magical about the day your child becomes an adult that just pushes you off that age cliff.)

Ditto so far. I'm a newbie with little experience but Northern Elf's response rings true for me. I'm on day four after being glutened in a restaurant eating gluten-free food. Although it started out pretty intense, this afternoon, my outlook on life became better which is one of the first signs of "the road back". There are symptoms going down the road and symptoms coming back. Today, I literally had no appetite and when I drank hot water with bitters, lemon & ginger syrup, it comforted me. Here is something I found and it seems to help on those days when my body is saying, "uh, no. No. Please don't put that in my stomach...":

    • This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%. I had a skin problem, possibly DH, which got better when I gave up gluten, improved further when I gave up processed foods but it wasn't until I stopped eating dry beans that I stopped getting any flares. I am also sensitive to egg though (although that does something different to my skin) so I'm a bit a skin-reactive person. Could be worth cutting it out just to see if that helps?
    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. If I ever get glutened by something then I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
