I had a question regarding the celiac attack. I was reading here about some of the attcks you folks have and I have to ask.  I  was told I had celiac at 30 (8 years)  I had a blood test only, but it was off the charts.  My question is, when I have a celiac attack (and its never a great deal of wheat eaten on accident) I do not have many if any physical symptoms.  Rather my mood and emotions become very bad.  I am not even the same person.  I cant think, I get SUPER depressed. ect.  Am I the only one who has this?  Because, I had gluten just over a week ago (a mistake in a resturant) and feeling an emotional change. My hair even seems different.    I need to know if this is common, or possible or should I be looking into something else.   When I am on a strick diet, I am just fine. 

THANKS bunches

You are not alone! Gluten definitely affects me physically but it has a huge impact on my mood. I become depressed, anxious, brain fog and moody! It's awful!

Hi Rebecca.  The term "celiac attack or gluten attack" is a term that I have heard here, but not sure how it's defined.  Some people have strong, painful symtoms after gluten ingestion, within twenty minutes or so.  I suppose that's what they mean.  Perhaps this is a severe allergy, or severe gluten intollerance, or both.

 

I personally, get very aggitated and tense, along with digestive issues about 26 hours after a gluten exposure.  The aggitation comes first.

 

Gluten Ataxia effects the brain.  And it can be quite debilitating, for some unrecognized.

 

Everyone is different.  And I would venture to say, that the longer you are gluten free, the more varied your symptoms can be.  I am certain that I have been exposed to cross contamination, or even a minor bit of gluten and have had no reaction, after eight years of being gluten free.  Meaning, that my body is now strong enough to deal with the 20 ppm, that is the proposed level of gluten that  most people with Celiac can be exposed to without damage..

 

Truly, gluten sensitivity is a weird bird, for sure.  You just have to listen to your body.

I really appreciate the feed back. It's super great to know I am not alone in this boat.  Having Celiac in the first place is a nightmare, but when I am contaiminated, I get so bad All I want to do it hide and never leave the house,.  Its tough. My emotions are so bad.  The fog is a good way to describe it. I feel dumb, and am easily confused and cant seem to handle things as well as I can when all is well.  Depression, and just plain irritaed at everything and everyon. 

 

THANK YOU!
