Maybe it's because I was just diagnosed with Celiac a few days ago, but every nite since then I've had dreams about slipping up. First it was a dream that I was in a meeting at work and absent-mindedly picked up one of those evil "munchkin" donuts, then fretted about it afterword. Last nite it was drinking a beer first thing in the a.m. (so funny because I hate beer and CERTAINLY would not drink it in the a.m.). It's sort of comical...

Could be driven by the fact that gluten gives me terrible stomach cramps pretty much immediately, and I'm now fearful of being contaminated!

Has anyone else had this hilarious "side effect"?

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I have had lots of those dreams, where I mindlessly eat something, and then I realize... And it is this horrible sinking feeling. I am always so grate ful that it is not real. My best friend is a sober alcoholic, and she said she used to get the same dreams, only about drinking.

I can relate. I have the stomach-cramping symptoms and I once dreamt of going to a really dark restaurant with my family. They gave me a chocolate cake, told me it was gluten-free, and I ate it. Then I realized it was dumb and I wondered if I should puke it up so less gluten would get through me or just let it go. It was horrible!...and it happened only a few weeks ago, so I never would have done something like that--I was 8 months in and paranoid about gluten consumpton! :o

Often I dream that I eat gluten, by accident or on purpose, and then have to run around insane thinking of what to do and how bad it was to have eaten it.

I've been gluten-free for a year now and my dreams have only started recently. It seems that my rebelious streak comes out in my dreams. In dreams, I realize that I shouldn't have the bread in my hand, and then it's like GR-R-R and I take this hugh bite! But, as long as it's only a dream, it doesn't hurt! granny

I dreamt I had a cookie with one of my sprouted wheat sandwiches.

The cool thing is, dreams don't get me sick. Hehe.
