So, was tested for coeliac in September (endoscopy, not the nicest experience I've ever had but over fairly quickly) and got the results finally in November as a negative, so that was good. The consultant did say though that due to the positive result of the exclusion diet back in Feb, it would be best to continue on a gluten free diet.
Now been doing it since October barring a few lapses (mostly beer on holiday) and gradually things are noticeably improving. Since I first had problems back in 2010, my resting HR in the mornings was rarely ever at pre-issue levels. But this month (inbetween colds and viruses) I've had quite a few completely normal readings and when I've felt good I've felt really good and bouncing with energy! Started going back to pilates classes which I haven't done regularly for over a year and today, had a gentle non-stop 1.3 mile trot round my regular route. The proof of the pudding will be how I feel over the next couple of days, if okay then perhaps another go soon. Finally feel like I might be getting somewhere.
