I was recently diagnosed with Celiac. I am from Trinidad and Tobago (Caribbean) and its not a very common disease here. I am tired all of the time. By 2pm I am ready to find a bed..anywhere!

I am awaiting blood test results for thyroid functions, iron, calcium and a lot of other things that I cannot remember right now. I have also signed up with a nutritionist.

After reading some of the comments, I think that I will start slowly to do some physical activity...maybe I will start by walking. I hope that helps.

I would also recommend thyroid testing--when I read your post, that was the first thing to come to mind. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is very common in people with celiac....and one of its principal features is fatigue and sleepiness.

...and still very relevant to me at least :). I'm experiencing serious fatigue about 2 months in to my gluten-free diet. This is my first week back at work after 7 weeks off and it's doing me in. I'm up at 6 - okay until about 2pm, then I seem to hit the wall and am completely incapable of functioning from then on. Good to know it's common enough to warrant 3 pages. This place is a mine of information for frightened rabbits like me \o.

Everyone is tired from viewing this thread so much...

I got real tired after eating gluten for a few months and killing my intestines. It has been 3 weeks now since not eating any gluten and for the first time in over 2 months I felt like I have more energy. I am heading out on a 2 day 1,000 mile motorcycle ride tomorrow and hope I have the energy level I started today with.

I have a warped plan... If I continue to be tired after eating and sleeping right I will just push myself until I have a real reason to be tired.

Noodle, jungle, jac & RL...

Are you eating plenty of protein? And I mean intermentently throughout the day. It seems to help. I'm worthless if I don't get my protein every few hours.

Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

It doesn't seem to make any difference how often I eat protein or how much of it I eat.

Part of my fatigue comes from the fact that I do suffer from insomnia. About one out of every three nights nights I don't sleep at all. However, when I do get a night with eight hours of sleep, I am often just as tired the next day.

Insomnia is truly a horrid thing. Like you, I am lucky if I have one good sleep per week. However, for some reason (perhaps the B12 sublingual and/or B complex and/or Vitamin D3) when I do sleep well (rare) I feel like I could conquer the world. I am full of energy. But with chronic pain it is so difficult to get in a comfortable position and fall asleep. Pain wakes me up often. Feeling so exhausted and draggy is not a way to start the day so I really empathize with you. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyagia which has many crazy symptoms include MAJOR chronic fatique. Could that be a possibility?

So, I commiserate with you. Hopefully we will be able to rest well tomorrow and feel refreshed.

It's actually improved for me over this week. I was pretty destroyed at the beginning of the week but by last night I was able to stay up most of the night. I've been having the usual newbie problems as I find more ingredients that dont agree with me, and that plus a return to work ( I get up at 6am to go to work ) did for me I believe. That said, I had a massive problem with dairy yesterday ( I keep on giving in and having things with a little dairy in the ingredients even though I know I shouldn't ) and that wiped me out for a chunk of the early evening.

I don't work on Fridays, so I've caught up on my sleep pretty much, so I feel almost human again. Hopefully I can recover and refresh fully over the weekend, something that never happened before I went gluten-free.

daily short excercise is improving my overall health. if you can manage it i would recommend it. daily short dosages are better and easier to maintain then more irregular and or longer excercising. i workout sometimes but do a lot of running because it's so extremely convenient. i get out the door and i'm going. run a couple of laps around the block and crash at home.

Yeah. I sleep until around 8:30 in the morning, then usually take a nap in the afternoon. I feel drained and tired pretty often.
