Celiac disease, taking gluten free diet, stomach ache. Treatment?

Hi, I have celiac disease , and after following a strict gluten free diet my stomach cramps have got like 10x worse..any ideas why this would be? I know I haven t ingested any gluten..and even my doctors confused..he s trying to look into it more, but I really don t want to get anymore tests done. Any Advice would be appreciated.

Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
you may have developed reaction to other proteins in wheat or it may be from other food protein
any food protein can start suddenly start reacting with body proteins to cause this
i suggest you to get blood serum tests for specific antibodies for milk wheat or other major proteins eliminate them for good relief
now a days sub-lingual immunotherapy for foods is getting good favour in usa and UK
mean time you can use supportive therapy to control symptomps
