It depends greatly on the individual.

Some people get bloating and/or stomach/bowel problems 24-48 hours after they ingest gluten. Some get tummy trouble as soon as it hits the stomach. Some get stomach pain, some get vertigo, some get vomiting, some get joint pain and brain fog. I am a celiac who gets a neurological response within 2 minutes of ingesting gluten, which makes my words slur and knocks me down with vertigo. Truly, it can be a surprising number of reactions.

It can last a few days or weeks, depending on how much gluten was eaten and how quickly a person’s body can heal.

You can get a blood test for celiac disease, though, which might be able to help. Gluten intolerance, you just have to do an elimination diet. However, once you start the elimination diet, the celiac disease test will be negative, so it’s a good idea to get that before starting the diet, if possible.
