Within 10 days of going GF, there was marked improvement in my chronic pain, energy level, and stiffness! I was experiencing restorative sleep for the first time in decades. Also, B-12 levels have skyrocketed.

Not all my problems are relieved, so there is more to be investigated, but the bottom line is that I cannot eat gluten!! If I slip up and indulge in something containing gluten, I will FEEL it within 3-4 hours, and it will stay with me sometimes a day or 2. The effect on me is an increase in myofascial pain and stiffness.

To me, it doesn't matter if I have Celiac or not - the treatment is the same, right? I just can't eat gluten. Do I need to find out if it's Celiac?
Hi there! Same sitch here (not celiac, but intolerant). Im pretty much off it, but can have small amounts with little to know trouble. It still sucks though! I used to love baking. Now i have pretty much stopped because its just too depressing. GF baking just doesn't come out right...unless it's a box mix, but then that's loaded with sugar and that's not really allowed in my diet either. :/
