  1. New planet taste really good. There are also a few other types of gluten free beers that I like. I never knew that Coors made a gluten free beer either. I'll have to ask around to see if I can find it here.   I changed my mind about oats. I read that some oat brands were tested and had over 2000 ppm gluten due to contamination which is quite a bit. I might be getting a bit of a reaction from them I am not sure. I am going to avoid gluten removed beers for a while to make sure. 
  2. Thanks. Yeah I noticed the original post was old but there are some new ones.    I know with omission beer some people have a strong reaction. Other people seem to tolerate it without any noticeable problems. I react strongly to gluten but can drink gluten removed beer without any problems. It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea but I am fine with it now. I can see why some people would want to play it safe and not consume anything made from wheat or barley.   The 'removal' process merely breaks the gluten proteins down in to smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are technically not gluten.  Some other regular beers have a lower gluten content than gluten removed beer. I think it depends on the individuals choice and on what they react to. Certainly not all people with Celiac disease are the same. 
  3. I have heard that the fermentation process breaks down the gluten in some types of beer. Some common beers test out at less that 5 parts per million. I only drink gluten removed beers right now but I am considering trying a few others. You can google the gluten content of different beers. I am not sure how safe or unsafe these beers are for people with Celiac disease. 
  4.  I totally believe what you said. I didn't have gluten ataxia but I used to have a lot whole lot of trouble thinking. When I went gluten free most of my symptoms went away but I feel I still have a few. I would recommend bringing some information with you if you go to the doctor. I don't think it is very common for people to have mental issues as a result of gluten and not all doctors are familiar with it. 
  5. If the body is exposed to something that it is allergic too, the body becomes flooded with antibodies. With time the number of antibodies will decrease if the particular food is avoided. For this reason someone with Celiac disease could in theory at least get a different level of reaction at different times. Celiac disease does not go away though. 
  6. There are other types of food allergies and sensitivities that can effect the brain besides gluten. One idea is to limit your diet to a few very basic foods for a few days and see if anything changes.  Wheat, corn, soy, eggs, dairy are some common problem foods for some people.
  7. Numb Hands And Feet

    An Omega-3 fatty acid (fish oil) deficiency can cause poor circulation in the hands. I used to have trouble with that. I found the circulation in my hands improved greatly when I went gluten free. 
  8. I get strong anxiety within about five minutes which gets worse after that. The first 24 hours are the worst, but I feel effects for about a week after a large exposure. 
  9. I used to have many mental health issues including strong anxiety and obsessive thoughts, anger issues, depression, and autistic symptoms etc.  before I went gluten free.  Now I feel great. 
  10. I suspect that milk also effects how I think and that I get brain fog from it. My reaction to milk is very mild compared to gluten and slow to take effect. When I accidentally eat gluten within a few minutes I have a strong sense of impeding doom, even though I know it's just an effect of the gluten. I also avoid people for the most part and become very irritable.  How people appeared to me visually also changed when I quit eating gluten the first time. Their physical features and the way they dressed looked more exaggerated to me and a little bit cartoonish. I talked to a doctor about it and she said it probably had to do with gut bacteria producing neurotransmitters but I think there is more to it than that.  I suspect that it is an auto-immune system response is being triggered that effects the brain. Possibly something similar to the condition known as PANDAS. I feel great and happy now but I do notice my siblings are more talkative than I am.
  11. Hello, I learned just about a year ago that I have celiac disease. Whenever I eat gluten I get strong anxiety. About 95 percent of my symptoms went away when I quit, but I still have a few.  I had most of the symptoms of high functioning autism, or Asperger syndrome.  One of the symptoms of this disorder is a fascination with learning about particular narrow topics of information. Before I went gluten free I used to spend months and months on end researching information on different types of nuclear reactors for example. When I quit gluten this symptom stayed with me for a while and then gradually faded. My anxiety level went way down almost immediately, however and other symptoms went away. When I eat gluten by accident I tend to hyper-focus on certain things but nothing at all like before. Does anyone else have this symptom when eating gluten? Also I am much more comfortable around people than I used to be, but I still have a bit of social phobia. I know some other people have had this symptom. How long (if ever) does it take for this to go away? Thanks  
  12. If you still reading this forum. People with asperger's syndrome, or high functioning autism have intense and narrow interests (like they may be totally and completely interested in frogs). DId you have narrow interests? I used to have all of the symptoms of high functioning autism, but they completely went away after I went gluten free.  I am seeing of your experinece is the same as mine.
  13. Emotional Symptoms

    I have a question, for anyone here who had mental problems as a result of eating gluten. How fast did your problems resolve after you went gluten free? Did you immediately revert to being normal or did it take a while for your brain to readjust?
  14.   Oh, okay yeah that makes sense.   I have been looking around on the site to see if anyone had a simliar experience. Although a number of people were effected in strong ways by gluten, I haven't found anyone who's experience was the same as mine, which I find kindof odd.  
  15. I don't think I was schizophrenic. I know quite a few people who think I am autistic, but I don't know anyone who thinks I'm schizophrenic. (That or maybe I am just imagining them all There is a lot of overlap between schizophrenia, some immune disorders, autism and the possible effects of wheat. One of the overlaps is anxiety which makes it kindof confusing.  Autism describes the way my mind worked (and in some ways still works), though, really really well. Fortunately the anxiety has gone away.    My coordination did not appear to be at significantly altered by any of this.    I am thinking it may possible have to do with the blood-brain-barrier. Wheat has a protein called galdin which causes the creation of a third substance which in turn can open the blood-brain-barrier. The other possibility is that it is related somehow to my immune system and the creation of immunogoblin. I found one study where someone was cured of autism by administering of immunogoblin by an IV.
