    Hi there, I love that I found a gluten free community and I am beyond impressed with Dr. O’s research on this topic. My name is Amy and I have always had pretty serious environmental allergies and was diagnosed with IBS in college. Things have gotten progressively worse and at age 37 i am currently experiencing peripheral neuropathy, anxiety, floaters, headaches, chemical sensitivities, athletes foot, gum disease, etc. I went to a specialist in March and they found one allele for Celiac, specifically the DQA1 and i had high IGA antibodies for gluten. I have been traditionally gluten free for three and a half months and grain free free for a week. I think my anxiety, sleep and neuropathy have improved a little but my IBS and chemical sensitivities are worse than ever. I’m feeling really discouraged and wondering if it’s normal for things to get worse before they get better. Thanks for listening!

    Hi Amy and welcome to the forum.  To answer your question,

    yes things can get worse before getting better.  That being said, you should also have GI infection or SIBO ruled out.  It is possible that your symptoms are persisting because of this.

    All the best,

    Dr. O
