Narcolepsy & Gluten

18 posts in this topic

Just recently we have come to discover that my husband has narcolepsy. His sleep problems have caused many problems both at home and at work, but we had previously just chalked it up to him being lazy or out of control of himself for no good reason (poor guy!) When I found out that I had celiac, Hubby joined in and went gluten free too. The narcolepsy went away within a week or so but returned a few days ago when Hubby gutened himself. It was this reaction that lead us to question his sleep behaviors and discover the underlying condition. Now we are wondering if Hubby is celiac too. Does anyone have any info on Narcolepsy and Gluten? I have read a few things that ties the sleep disorder to auto immune disease, specifically celiac, but this is only a "theory." Did anyone else have narcolepsy that went away after going gluten free? Thanks.

I used to fall asleep at the drop of a hat and sleep for days on end before eliminating gluten. And when I first went on this diet and was glutenned again, I noticed that I was doing it again. Not so much now, but I'm using DPP-IV nowadays if I think I've been glutenned.

It's funny, I get insomnia at bedtime and nocturnal myoclonus too if I get glutenned.

I would imagine that during those days I was sleeping days on end, I was on a shredded wheat kick. Two for one takes on a whole new meaning when gluten's involved. : )

I have narcolepsy and Celiac Disease. I've noticed that my fatigue gets a lot worse when I've been glutened. I've read several theories that narcolepsy and celiac are carried on the same gene and may somehow be related. In visiting narcolepsy message boards, I've read that many people with narcolepsy feel a lot better after going gluten-free. Not sure if they have been tested for celiac, but it seems a lot of people notice a difference on the diet, celiac or not. My narcolepsy has not gone away, but my fatigue has gotten better. I can fight being sleepy better than I could before going gluten-free. Is your husband on any type of medicine? If he is, he should know that when I checked last July, provigil contains gluten. I take ritalin because of that. I hope your husband is feeling better having a diagnosis! I think I took the news that I have narcolepsy harder than when I found out I have Celiac! Maybe he should get a blood test just to know for sure?

I don't know how useful this information is, but I think it is interesting. There is a gene-- the DQ7 gene-- that is found in about 2% of celiacs (European) and this gene is also called the narcolepsy gene. If you google it, you should find some hits.

I have the DQ7 and I have a lot of sleep problems.

Maybe you will find out he has that genotype.

Anna, I don't know if I have narcolepsy or not, but I have major "sleep attacks" when I get glutened. From childhood on, i have some mild to moderate differences in the way I handle sleep that have led me to question whether I have a form of narcolepsy. I used to experience sleep paralysis during twilight sleep...basically would be awake, about to fall asleep, and find myself et alert but unable to move. I can remember it happening at home, in the car, in the nurse's office at school, etc. In the few years before being diagnosed with Celiac, I was having a big problem with excessive sleepiness, particularly in the afternoon (? was it always after gluten meals?). Sometimes I just had to go to sleep for a while, and afternoon driving was difficult and not the safest thing, IMO.

After I went gluten free, I got a huge lift - felt like I had great energy all the time, no naps. But I started having "sleep attacks" a few weeks after going gluten free. I guess it was increased sensitivity. Now I have to be very careful, because one of my symptoms of being glutened is mild headache, then impossible to fight sleepiness. I can feel it coming on, can fight it a little bit if I slap my face, walk around, etc., but it's very difficult not to fall asleep. If I sit down I'm gone. It wears off between 1 hour and 3 hours later. I have had to pull my car over and find a place to park & sleep. The best thing is when I can just give in to it...and wake up several hours later feeling fine. (Then I get mild GI symptoms the next day.)

I get leg jerks / twitches when glutened, too. If it's RLS, it was cured when I went gluten free. I also have DH rash, brain fog, ataxia like symptoms, GI symptoms, etc. Pretty nasty stuff, but amazine that it's all okay when I'm gluten free. When tested, I did not have positive EMA or TTG, but I did have a high positive antigliadin IGA.

I always thought I had Narcolepsy and it doesn't go away when I stop eating wheat. I'm always Xtra tired .I found that Caffeine does keep me awake ,so I don't spend most of the week sleeping.I'm going to take caffeine pills since the black tea makes me feel too dry and the green tea has only a third the caffeine as black tea ,so I'll take a caffeine pill when needed.I'll probably need only 100 mg a day if even that much so I'll cut a pill in half.They come in 200 mgs. I found a huge bottle for $10,but the fancy brands give you only 40 pills for $8.I don't feel sick when I consume caffeine ,so I seem to tolerate it well and it helps me stay awake. I was diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome recently and one of it's symptoms is major fatigue.

After I got my enterolab gene test I googled my genetic results and found one of the genes Enterolab reported on was also somehow connected to narcolepsy. I don't have it though... thank god!

This is interesting as when I get Glutened the first symptom is over whelming fatigue ...to the stage of falling asleep at the steering wheel. This happens within an hour or two of the Glutening but the fatigue happens within minutes .... I can be caught in traffic and suddenly find myself unable to stay awake. I had never thought of it as narcolepsy before but now I do - it could be described as that. I didn't know there was a gene test for it. I will check this out. Thanks!

I was actually diagnosed with narcolepsy in mid-2005. I started having other problems in the fall of 2005, and given my family history I went gluten free later in the year. I now sleep normal amounts and don't, say, fall asleep in my car at the post office.

Now, I don't think I actually had narcolepsy. The way it's diagnosed is by making you take this sleeping test, and if you fall asleep too fast or too often while they're monitoring you, then they say you have it. However, I never had cataplexy or anything like that (even thought that doesn't occur in all cases).

I will say, however, that getting in a normal routine is easier without gluten. I have more energy during the day to tire myself out the right way and thus sleep better at night. Plus, before I would only get the energy up to get any exercise late in the day, and in my opinion that doesn't allow your body to slow down for sleeping, so you get poor quality sleep. The trick is to be awake when you're awake and asleep when you're asleep, not in between for both.

So my point is, I guess, that gluten can affect you in ways that can make you markedly more tired, but it's not necessarily a direct cause and effect relationship.

I have Narcolepsy and have to avoid gluten and a few other foods to feel well. If I eat properly, I don't have many symptoms, although I still have some daily fatigue and I have Cataplexy if I'm laughing at a funny movie or something. But for the most part I feel alert and can think and I don't fall down spontaneously. And I don't have to take a nap every day.

I am gluten-free, sugar free, and I have to avoid all grains, and a few particular fruits that paralyze me within 30 seconds if I eat them. I just found out it's the gluten sensitivity that's been causing my spontaneous cataplexy episodes for 10 years, and all that fatigue. My brother and niece have Celiac so I suspect I probably do too.

Whenever I brought up food allergies as triggers with my doctors they always ignored me or scoffed at the idea. I had to go to a Naturopath to get any real help. They know all about food!

Anyway, there are a few of us over at the Narcolepsy Network forum that have found our Narcolepsy is severely aggravated by gluten, so your husband is not alone. There are other things besides gluten that trigger Narcolepsy symptoms, like choline, so he may have to do an elimination diet to find all of his triggers.

Hope that helps!

Genetics research in Narcolepsy is far from complete. They still don't really know what causes it and not everyone with Narcolepsy has the first gene they found. They've since found a couple more, but the research is still pretty new so I don't know if you could get tested for it yet.

However, the Celiac genes and the first Narcolepsy gene they found are pretty close together. I don't have that Narcolepsy gene but I'm curious if maybe many people with Narcolepsy have the Celiac genes. That would be really interesting!

Hi Candy

I got a little worried when I read your post. I have narcolepsy and used to do just what you did. I binged on coffe and caffein for years. As Sjogren's is an autoimmune disorder - adrenal burn out - which huge amounts of caffein causes, is of concern.

I am sure you must have thought of getting tested for narcolepsy? I am not for drugs - but sometimes one type of drug might be less damaging than others - and some of the narcolepsy drugs are not stimulants. How is your nightsleep? and what do you do for a living.

Is wheat all you have cut out and what other things have you tried. Did your doctor test your vitamin D levels, Hb1Ac, Iodine and RBC magnesium? Have him do an adrenal test just so you don't make yourself worse in the long run. I did a number on myself and have worked years to try to repair the damage- not easy...

I don't have any formal diagnoses, but horrible cramping and needing 18 hours in bed each day greatly diminished immensely after my last gluten on 8/17/10. My sleep needs, gradually increasing from 8 to 12 over 5 years, are now up to 14.5. My sleep is usually sound now for most of the night but I still usually have a bit of cramping and needing to use the bathroom sometime after 5 AM. At the same time, I have started to notice narcoleptic symptoms such as sleep attacks, sleep paralysis, and dreaming while I'm half-asleep. Thus my narcolepsy is getting worse.

I could easily believe that narcolepsy is an autoimmune disorder. I also have bad allergies and at age 53, I'm starting to notice some arthritis.

I have been to a sleep doc at Mayo who seemed to know all about Celiac. It seems that about half of people with narcolepsy have Celiac disease. Now, three months off gluten, I am sleeping quite well most nights, have seen no more sleep attacks, paralysis, or waking dreams. I now have tremendous energy and a clearer head than I've had in a decade! For me, gluten=POISON!

After I got my enterolab gene test I googled my genetic results and found one of the genes Enterolab reported on was also somehow connected to narcolepsy. I don't have it though... thank god!

Same with me, but I have two sets of the genes. I'm considered gluten "sensitive" not gluten intolerant by Enterolab.

I was diagnosed with Sjogren Syndrome as well and battled fatigue too. I later found out that I am also intolerant to other foods and after eliminating them I am much better. I don't even need coffee anymore. I do still drink Green Tea because it's been proven to help protect the salivary glands of Sjogren Symdrome patients.

I'm one of those people who hasn't been formally diagnosed either Celiacs or Narcoleptic... I had very "abnormal" sleep studies (very close to narcolepsy diagnosis but was five minutes too slow at falling asleep,) so my insurance won't cover any prescription medicines to help. My doctor doesn't think it's worth putting me through a biopsy for celiacs even though I have had vitamin D deficiency and wasn't absorbing medication. Does anyone know whether keeping on the gluten free diet will help my "not-quite-narcolepsy" if I do not have celiacs, or should I push for the biopsy to try to rule out gluten as a factor? Or just go gluten-free anyway? I'd appreciate any competent advice at this point.

Thanks!

I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I'm just starting to try a gluten-free diet. I don't know for sure because I can't afford a sleep study, but I have cataplexy with stress or fatigue and can fall asleep just about anywhere (including stancing up on the train!). Also, my REM cycles are all messed up (I start dreaming before my head even hits the pillow and sometimes even during the day or while I'm driving!). I guess I haven't been gluten-free long enough to see if it helps, but my acupuncturist, who recommended I try it (because I kept coming up negative for everything my G.P. tests for) said that she's seen these symptoms in other gluten-intolerant/celiac people she's worked with, so I think it might be related. Obviously, I'm no expert, but I do think I'm in a similar situation, so it seems likely to me...

    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
