Hanging In There Against The Depression And Anxiety
0

8 posts in this topic

I have had Celiac for years but was only diagnosed recently. I have been reading posts for several weeks and learning more and more. I am grateful for all of the insight and help I received from this forum. I have never had problems with moods or depression until removing gluten from my diet. This is as difficult as the pain is to deal with.

My oldest son was diagnosed with Celiac several years ago. My symptoms were SO different from his that I had no idea that I was suffering with the same thing. He has just posted a song on YouTube that fits how I am feeling with the struggle right now. It is Martina McBride's Anyway. May it encourage all who chose to listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ino14YBsHE8

Both my daughter and I suffer from depression when we are glutened, mine is mild hers is pretty severe. She also has panic attacks and we are hoping that the longer she is gluten-free (she's only been doing it a couple of months, at 16 she "goofs" a lot) the fewer panic attacks she will have. Its very difficult to go thru.

I have only been gluten free for about 6 weeks and I have been so darn depressed lately. I think it has only hit me recently that this is a complete life change. Combine this with feeling sick all the time and not being able to exercise.

I have heard people say that depression symptoms ease with the gluten-free diet, I guess I'm just waiting for that to kick in. I feel so bad for my fiance who is so patient with me, he could be out having fun but instead is lounging around the house getting bored because I don't want to o anywhere. sigh :(

You need Green Magma in order to attack depression associated with celiac disease.

It worked on me and when my nephew first got depression it worked on him. It takes

24 hours for it to kick in and then energy level shoots way up. Check health stores

for it but not a GNC. Go to Green magma and it

should be listed there.

Umm, that has barley in it! I would not eat/take/drink that stuff because it has gluten in it!

That has barley grass and it is certified gluten free and says so right on the label.

yep,

Because its has sprouted and is no longer a grain, it no longer has gluten. No grasses contain gluten as far as I am aware. I used to take something similar in the form of gluten free powdered wheat grass. Must admit it did help the energy levels.

My husband never suffered from depression and anxiety, until after he removed gluten from his diet. Whenever he accidentally is "glutened" he is absolutely unbearably miserable!! It is a hard thing to go through, and I saw the post on the green magma. I will check this out for him! This site is so helpful for dealing with all the stuff that goes along with gluten intolerance. When my husband was diagnosed, we were told, " just don't eat gluten" and given a list of acceptable and unacceptable foods. That was it. This website has been so helpful!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
