justwantrelief added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Feeling Awful!Hi...I have been gluten free for over a week and I seem to just be getting worse! I had to take a xanax today just so the pounding heart would stop and I could take care if my kids. Any idea if this is normal? I am not diagnosed...just tring to be healthier and feel better. It does not seem right that lack of gluten in making me feel this bad! It has been a week and I feel too crappy to do anything! Any advice would help! Thanks

justwantrelief added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsSo Confused?I have been gluten free for 8 days. I have felt like I had the flu for most of them but my stomach was fine. I have not had D in a looong time even before going gluten free. I felt great today and thought I finally turned a corner. Then, right after dinner I had awful D with gas and stomach rumbling. ugh. Why would D start now? Did I get glutened? Or is this just another stage in the gluten withdrawl? Anyone have a similar experience?

justwantrelief added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsNew HereHi!
I am new here and I am one week gluten free. I feel like crap. For the last 5 years (after three c sections within 4 years) I have been suffering with depression and anxiety. It has gotten so bad lately that I thought I was going to die during a panic attack. Very scary when you are driving three kids around. I cam across this board and some of the symptoms described here seem like exactly what I have been experiencing. For several years I have always had to stay close to the toilet after meals. I have stopped going out to dinner, etc..That has happened for a few years. I started taking probiotics and my stomach problems decreased somewhat. This year the anxiety started. Is there anyone out there that had more depression/anxiety symptoms that were "cured" by going gluten free? I am desparate for help. Also is there any advice on how to get through the gluten withdrawl? Seems the anxiety is worse since stopping gluten but I think this is temporary...
Thanks in advance for any help!
