Anyone Feels Worse In The Morning?
0

22 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I may not be celiac at all but I hope you don't mind me posting. I have my blood test in the morning, if I can make it to the surgery. Mornings are my worst time, I usually feel quite ill, sick, fatigue, and generally just very unwell. Since being so unwell I have developed agoraphobia and find going out very difficult so it is a double whammy for me. I try to be strong and not give into the passing out sensations and shaking but it is so hard. Does anyone else suffer in this way ? Thank you.

I always felt like hell all day long and I had anxiety and a bit of agoraphobia f develop when I was quite ill before diagnosis (and I am not  shy or anxious by nature at all ). 

 

It's entirely possible that you are feeling this way  from malabsorption and vitamin deficiencies. 

These symptoms (including panic attacks) are consistent with celiac/ gluten

intolerance.

 

The good news is, they disappear off gluten (in everyone I know that experienced this sensation)

Many people on here can attest to this!  :)

 

Take deep, slow breaths, tell yourself you are safe and calm--- and hold onto someone's arm.

You can do this!

 

Positive test or not, you may well be better off  dumping the gluten  IMHO.

 

I wish you all the best.

Thankyou, it's horrible to feel ill all the time, as I am sure everyone here knows.

Thankyou, you're all so kind and the reassurance is much appreciated. I am not normally shy or anxious either, and blood tests have never bothered me in the past. Well it's not so much the test as getting there, and the waiting. Last time I practically passed out and the staff had to take me in the staff room, and get me seen by a doctor before I couldd have the actual test. Once I was getting it done, there was no problem.

I can honestly say I had the same peculiar thing happen to me. I even had to stop driving my car. My reflexes were shot and I felt

like a big old nervous nelly. I kept saying to my hubs "what the hell is wrong with me?" I am a very independent person and it felt so crazy to

have to rely on him to take me everywhere. I clung to his arm like a child. Totally weird.

 

I was so glad to have all that nonsense stop!! :rolleyes: .A few months after DX and off gluten, and I was back to my old self.

 

You're going to be okay tomorrow.  Hang in there.

I use to be as tired in the morning as I was at the end of some of my most grueling days.   I wondered why.  NOw, I do not wonder and I try to beware about gluten, and I am getting better.

I have to my husband with me if I do feel up to going out, and then it's only a few hundred yards. It is crazy I agree. I used to be able to go anywhere on my own, and drive anywhere too. I don't drive now. I also have these strange spacy, not really here feelings which I find quite distressing. Somehow I feel my life is totally upside down.

I try to have a dinner free of gluten if I can but then I spoil it by having a cake or something. I am not trying to go gluten free till I have had the blood test

Jo,

I called this ordeal I suffered for nearly 3 years  "my time in gluten head hell". I frequently felt as if I were lost in space. It affected my ability to

articulate, comprehend new information and  multi-task. My short term memory suffered as well.

It is hard to describe, unless you live it. There are many published medical articles that explain the neurological impact of gluten and celiac disease.

I really think this may be your problem.

 

All of that resolved off gluten. There was a time when 3 nuerologists told me the ataxia, the neuropathy and the parasthesia I suffered would be something I would have to learn to live with and take drugs to control.

 

They were wrong. I take no medications and I am fine.

I do hope this is the problem as it means I can get out of it. I just feel sort of unreal, if you know what I mean. As you say it is difficult to describe if you haven't been there. And I expect everyone would describe it differently. I don't want to take drugs so you have given me hope. Thank you. I was told by one doctor that I was severley depressed and wouldn't get better without anti depressants which I definitely don't want. I knew I wasn't suffering depression but it is really hard to get doctors to see anything else.

This is the same path so many of us on here have walked. Doctors symptom- treat rather than get to the cause of the symptoms.

The more you tell me, the more you sound like the rest of us.

I am so pleased to have found you all, you have given me hope. Even if I don't test positive for celiac I will try going gluten free and see if that helps. Thank you all so much for your support.

With all of my heart, Jo, I really think you should give it a good strict trial. Give it a few months.

Some people test negative on blood tests and they are celiacs nonetheless.

I know; I am one of them.

 

If your brain MRI is normal and the doctors have no other explanation, odds are pretty good it's gluten.IMHO

It really does sound a lot like no matter how the test goes, giving the gluten free thing a good go will likely make a huge difference in your life. I am insanely independent, and possibly obnoxiously outspoken. I spent years leaning on my husband for everything. I wasn't really sure what it was, but I just wasn't up to doing all of the doctors and all that nonsense by myself. I just couldn't handle it. Didn't want to, wouldn't go alone. Now, after a year gluten free I can put on my big girl pants and go to the doctor all by myself.

 

Test day is just one day, and while I have dealt with crippling anxiety I also know what it means to have support through it. You'll have a cheerleading squad here pulling for you.

Thank you IrishHeart and Adelaide. I haven't had any MRIs and the way this morning went I don't think I will be able to. Got to the surgery, was anxious before I went, got the test done then started to feel faint, so had to lie down a while. Probably 10/15 mins feeling awful and shaking. Nurse said to come home to bed and call ambulance if not better. I don't want to go to hospital, so just resting on settee. Calming a bit now. i know from experience thes attacks wear off after about an hour. It is comforting to know I am not alone with this.

That. dear Jo, sounds like a classic panic attack. They are awful, I know. 

This is a celiac symptom.

I hope you get your results soon.

Keep us posted.

I hate panic attacks, there is nothing you can do to stop them! Got to go for results next Monday, unless they phone sooner.

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free.  There is a chance they could still be positive.....  But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.   I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused  by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.     Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-much-gluten-should-be-consumed-prior-to-being-screened-for-celiac-disease/
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
