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
Sleep apnea
Depression
Anxiety

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.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul
