Oh reading this makes me feel so much better. I am new to Celiac. My allergist and doctor believe that I have it despite not being tested because I have enough symptoms. After being just shy of two weeks gluten-free, my 11 year old daughter commented that she has noticed that I don't yell at her as much as I used to and seem less distracted. I personally have noticed that my focus is better and I am less depressed, which is amazing because I am always a little sad, anxious and agitated. It is especially impressive because I own a business and it is going through the holiday slump, plus I am overwhelmed by the fact that I can't eat gluten and even more difficult I have a spice allergy and I am Mexican. Nature has a cruel-cruel sense of humor. I think the most difficult part for me is knowing that gluten has made me such a difficult person all of these years and knowing that, at times, I was so not nice to my daughter and people I love.

I am excited though to have psychological balance and hopefully one day soon get off my ADHD medication.

Here's to looking towards less angry days and less unintended hurt feelings.

WOW. That inital post, and many after could have been written by me.

i love the title Post-Wheat-Syndrome! just last night at a dinner we (hubby) and i were describing my experience with gluten as similar to PMS form hell that lasts for days, even a couple weeks at a time, before improving.

Funny thing... same thing happens to him when he eats tomatoes during ragweed season ;)

I can`t help you much except to say, isn`t it great knowing we are not alone. I esp. like the fact that after reading some of these i don`t feel like a nut-job anymore. If so many people experience the same thing... it cannot possibly be just in my head can it? ;)

I also had mental symptoms from gluten in the past. The title of this thread pretty much describes my symptoms, depression, anger and quick temper. At times I would become angry and not even know why. I was easily frustrated also. I had bad memory problems also, and would forget things very quickly. Sometimes when I was working on the computer if I switched from one app to another I would forget what I was planning to do in the 2nd app. And have to switch back to the first app to remind myself. So forgetting things within a second or two. That was scary stuff. Now what was I saying? Oh yeah! :D But things got much better after being gluten-free for a while. My memory improved, my anger went away, my depression also flew the coop. It took a while for those changes to happen, but they did happen.

If I get a food I am intolerant of I sometimes get really sad even though I have good circumstances. Now, when that happens, I figure I just have to hold on for a couple of days and will begin to feel better again.

Yes!  My daughter becomes a different person!  She has black out rages on gluten.  NEVER off gluten.  She also has some ocd behaviors (afraid of germs, believes sister is contaminated, fixes and refixes bed, etc), low-self esteem, pessimism, anxiety (right now on challenge it is about tornados), and VERY reactive emotionally.  Basically she flies off the handle over everything and has sobbing fits that sometimes last an entire day.  Off gluten, all of these symptoms either disappear completely or drastically improve when we remove gluten.  A few days into her gluten challenge she said "mom, I never believed you about the gluten affecting my behavior until now.  I can't control myself and don't want to act like this.  I just get so angry I want to punch someone. I'm so sorry."  

 

My stepmother witnessed her reactions during the first week of the challenge and said "this is not my granddaughter".

I get really snippy when given gluten, then I feel bad for about a day afterwords because I snipped at a person who was innocent. That is on top of constipation and bloating.

Hello every one. Gluten and casein intolerance have ruined so many lives. My dad used to beat my mom... Couldn't help it. Ate food, got angry. I have forgiven him for it . My dad was diagnosed as schizophrenic...nope.. Gluten/casein intolerant. My brother diagnosed as bipolar......nope... Gluten/casein intolerant.. My sister... Angry.. Yells all the time... Gluten and casein intolerant... Me.... Anxiety/ depression.... Gluten/casein intolerant.

I had myself and my brother tested IgG from mymedlab.... My celiac test from blood was negative... But my IgG testing..wheat casien gluten and many more...


Please do no just go off of the first test...

Please go to the celiac Chicago research. 200 symptoms are related food intolerances.


Look up "brain allergies" if you have been diagnosed with any type of mental illness. Also look up functional medicine doctors... These doctors know all about gluten and food allergies..

Also, I found a a veterinarian that had mental issues and was gluten affected ... Www.dogtorj.com. So much great information..

I don't think a Veterinarian is a good source for human food intolerance issues.  Also, IMHO, I would not trust a medical diagnosis from a mail away lab, too many variables and you don't specifically state what all you tested for and what was negative or positive.  Allergies are different from Intolerances and so on.  Some psychiatric issues have nothing to do with food.  You may still want to pursue mental health care. 

 

Good luck to you.

FYI. The veterinarian is gluten intolerant like you and I. His site is full of great informations for humans and animals. He has been gluten free since 2000. So he has 13 more years of experience in dealing with this. :). Tere

Well, I am a Celiac, not gluten intolerant and I have over 25 years of "experience" regarding food issues and other AI Diseases. 

 

I am glad you are benefiting from the gluten-free diet.

I  am not aware of any evidence that states we celiacs cannot eat the flesh and fat of animals who eat grains and soy--as this veterinarian claims.

 

I read this in one of this articles:

 

He questions:  " How hard is it to believe that the flesh-  and fat - of animals consuming gluten, soy and corn contain enough lectins to do us harm?"

 

Answer: It's hard to believe.

This thread is very interesting. Like so many coeliacs I thought my bad temper/anger was just part of my personality but realise that I have not always been like this at all and it is my celiac disease and other food intolerances that are playing a part. These intolerances make me very tired and very "down" and if anyone asks/tells me to do something I really can't be bothered doing then they get a mouthful.

 

I also now realise that although my celiac disease antibody level is down to "normal", this is not the full story and there is more to celiac disease than is commonly realised. Since going on the gluten-free diet I have become intolerant to all dairy, oats, eggs, soya, grapes, pears, ginger....never ending. My body appears to be a mass of inflammation - costant SI pain, sore arms which leads to frequent headaches and migraines.

 

But it is the depressive symptoms that I truly detest and the anger/short temper that comes with it. Now seeing a specialist who hopefully will guide me through a healing diet.
