Suffering from celiac disease, allergy to wheat, sore stomach on eating wheat. Cure?

My name is XXXXXX and I have celiac disease ( gluten-free ). About a month ago, give or take, I gave in and had like five cookies (non-gluten-free) I was sick for like two weeks which is unusual for me and since then up to now my stomach has been very sore and I feel awful. Is there something else that could be causing this? The pain from eating wheat should have gone away by now I would think....?

Welcome to HCM!
Your symptoms seem to be from coeliac disease itself
Coeliac disease isn't an allergy or an intolerance to gluten.instead, the immune system mistakes gluten as a threat to the body and attacks them.
This damages the surface of the small intestine, disrupting the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food.
Eating foods containing gluten can trigger a range of symptoms, such as:diarrhoea ,bloating ,abdominal pain,weight loss.feeling tired all the time.
Gluten is a protein found in three types of cereal:wheat,barley ,rye
There is no cure for coeliac disease, but switching to a gluten-free diet helps control symptoms and prevents long term consequences of the disease.
Even if symptoms are mild or non-existent you must not eat gluten, as continuing to eat gluten can lead to serious complications.
It is also important to make sure your gluten-free diet is healthy and balanced. Many gluten-free foods are available in recent years,hence its possible to eat both a healthy and varied gluten-free diet.
I sincerely hope that this will help you!
take care!

Symptoms can range from mild to severe.
