Do you get exhausted after eating a meal? I ate lunch about an hour ago and am just about ready to pass out. I mean, I'd kill for a bed! This is nothing new for me. I just never had an explanation for it before now.

For those of you on a gluten-free diet, you may have to remember prior to the dietary change.

Oh I certainly used to. I have, on multiple occasions, had to pull my car off the road and take a little nap for fear of falling asleep at the wheel. In the middle of the day.

During the first 3 months or so gluten-free, I would get so tired at times that I thought I might collapse. It sounds dramatic but thats what it felt like. Also during that time, I would fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow at night and sleep for about 9 hours straight (not previously the norm for me). At about the 4 month mark, the fatigue began to ease up. I think it was the start of the healing process.

I had this problem for years.....in my case (I'm not sure if this applies to you), it was a pre-diabetic condition caused by my pancreas making too much insulin. Diabetes runs rampant in my family and usually shows up in relatives in their early 40's. I'm 38.

There is something else that is very common out there, it is called Syndrome X. google this term and see if these symptoms sound anything like your problem.

Hope this helps,
