Yes I have the same symtom, complusion, anger, mood swings when (if by chance) on gluten. i do take sme vitamins but I dont see the difference. The main thing is to avoid gluten. If I keep my diet my mood is stable and I feel okay. (In spite of normal daily problemsolving issues.)

Ooooohhhh, yeah! I have mood swings, depression, horrible bouts of indecision, and a lack of focus that almost cost me my job before I realized that my problem was gluten.

Someone also mentioned hormones - I have PMDD and started on YAZ last year, about four months after beginning the gluten free diet. It has made a big difference, but I'm sure that the gluten free diet has made an even bigger difference. On those occasions that I am accdientally glutened, I find the next entire cycle is much more difficult, so it must throw everything out of balance.

Amazing, how one little food ingredient can turn a person's entire life completely inside-out.

I also take a really good multi vitamin, as well as B-Complex and Calcium and Magnesium. If I forget to take them for a couple days, I can definitely feel the difference (fatigue, malaise, etc.).

I've only been gluten free for 3 days now, but I feel like a completely different person! I am normally VERY moody, snap easily at my daughter and on the verge of tears very often.

I feel so great!

I think maybe some people who get grumpier after going gluten free may not be getting enough carbs in their system. I know that carbs can affect mood, and when you go gluten free, your choices can be so limiting.

As far as being frustrated when you're out and about and suddenly need something to eat-do what i do...always have something with you! A gluten free snack bar, fruit, pack of tuna, some nuts-whatever you can eat. takes the frustration out of the situation pretty easily.

I am so glad you are having a good response to the diet. For some of us another possible factor with mood swings after going gluten free is that they will go through withdrawl. Not everyone experiences this but for some the first week is a real tough time. It sounds like you are coping with this well and the suggestion to always have a safe food with is a real good one.

Ugh me too. I get terrible mood swings. I get so bitchy that even i hate myself when i get like that. The bad thing is that i say bad rude comments to my husband in front of ppl, and i know im coming across as the mean controlling witch. Its uncontrollable, im not normaly like that, before i was celiac i was shy,quiet and everyone saw me as that nice girl. But now i believe ppl see me as the rachet mean wife. Lol i just feel bad for my husband, cus he has to deal with me.

I am also very angry and moody when I get glutened, and it's a total jekyl and hyde thing. I'm normally very calm, focused, and nice, but if I ingest gluten, I suddenly turn into a crazy person with irrational outbursts of anger. I call it the "gluten furies." :D I have found that cranking up some loud music and going for an "angry run" really helps to get out that burst of negative energy. It doesn't solve the problem completely, but it helps.
