Mood Swings?
0

31 posts in this topic

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.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
