Internal Sleep Clock Is Whack During Withdrawal
0

2 posts in this topic

Diagnosed Celiac last week and cold turkey quit gluten, corn, soy, dairy, many RX's (including several benzos) and caffeine. First few days I had the typical caffeine withdrawal headache. Now I feel as though I'm living in reverse, experiencing the various health issues I encountered over the many years leading up to last week, one by one. Insomnia and tinnitus is maddening during the withdrawal. I've been tripling my probiotic consumption as directed and my supplements arrive next week. Hoping that helps take the edge off a bit. Hot water with a lemon slice and some honey helps with the detox and is soothing to the gut. Determined to get through this and back to health and well being. Any advise for sleep?

Diagnosis leading up to Celiac diagnosis (spanning 40 years...searching for the answer):

Migraines

ADD

Gallbladder issues

GERD

IBS

Gastroparesis

PMDD

Chronic sinusitis

Hypothyroidism

Peripheral Neuropathy

Secondary Hyperparathyroidism

VIT D deficiency

Auto-immune (idiopathic)

Chronic Fatigue

Osteoarthritis

Mood disorder

Depression

Hi CGVA,

 

Welcome to the forum! :)

 

Sounds like you are making some big changes suddenly.  That's ok but it can cause reactions.  Sometimes it's safer to taper off drugs.  Some people find melatonin helpful for sleep.  Or herbal teas.   or both.  A little wine before bed might help too.

 

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.
