I also get really tired when i have eaten something bad, that along with pain is normally how i know that something is up with my body.

I am not doctor, but i am guessing that since your body starts attacking your insides because of whatever you just ate, it takes a lot out of you and you get very weak.

Thats a reaction you are getting.

I get other symptoms but what you have sounds like a normal reaction to me.

Absolutely. When I eat something with Gluten I fall asleep - not really a good sleep but rather like a drugged sleep - and sllep for hours; the more gluten the longer the sleep. I've got to find out everything that may contain gluten, e.g. Stilton cheese, because I gotta get outtta bed.

Yep, yep, yep!!! Gluten=sleep for a week!!! :o

That is one way I know I have been glutened... sometimes the sleepiness hits before the stomach part. It is always different.

You are normal ~ for a celiac disease that is!!! ;)

For those of us who have diarrhea, nausea, vomiting upon getting glutened, that is likely the tired culprit. It wipes out your electrolytes which keep your body in check and functioning. Gatorade or Pedialyte can help with the fatigue (I havent had to try yet so I dont know if they are gluten-free, double check) Electrolyte replacement is important, and rest is too. Push fluids if you can when it happens, and listen to your body-rest!

Do any of you have trouble getting to sleep at night? I seem to be able to sleep during the day and certainly sleep-in in the morning but sometimes I have trouble at night. Like right now, I have to get up in 7 hours and I'm wide awake!

Not good.... Patty

Lately I have had a hard time sleeping at night. I will sleep from 10:30 until midnight when I wake up for no reason and then watch the clock for hours!!!!

It is VERY frustrating!!! :blink:

Fatigue and brain fog happen when I eat gluten,

I have trouble getting to sleep at night and have started taking melatonin and it really helps. I don't take it everyday and only use it when I have a lot to do the next day or am really having trouble getting to sleep. Haven't noticed any ill effects and it doesn't make me have a drugged kind of sleep either.

This is an interesting topic to me as I've had different sleep problems over the years, depending on my circumstances. <_<

I began having nightmares following cataract surgery. My Dr. made a note of it in my chart, but never offered a solution or even a suggestion. Fast Fwd to 2004, following a nasty bout with Shingles, followed by a stressful and complicated move to another State. A daughter who was helping with the move told me I was a basket case and should get some help with my Anxiety level. The Dr. suggested Xanax for immediate results, and put me on 0.5 mg 2X daily or as needed. :)

Following the first 0.5 mg, I went to bed and napped for 4 hours in the middle of the day! No nightmares.

The next dose I took 1/2 a pill at bedtime. Slept like a baby with no nightmares.

Six months later, I tried to go off Xanax (I don't like taking meds unnecessarily, and I take 6 different meds a day for heart condition and thyroid.) The first night I woke every 2 hours, but went back to sleep. The 2nd night, - the nightmares came back. Needless to say, I returned to taking 1/2 pill (0.2.5 mg) at bedtime and have no nightmares. :D

Please note: this all took place before I was dx with celiac. I have been gluten free for 2 1/2 weeks, and the sleep pattern continues just as before. I get a good night's sleep. Being retired, I often have the luxury to sleep until my body decides it needs to get up and that can be 9 - 10 hours. Usually I have to be somewhere by 9 a.m. or so, which requires that I get up around 7 to accomplish all my rituals which I'm pokey at. So, if I get to bed at midnight (usually) and get up at 7, I only get 7 hours sleep, which I think is plenty (unless I'm really below par). I also nap during the day (1-2 hours.) :rolleyes:

I don't know if any of this information will be helpful to anyone. But I'm sold on the idea of a light dose of Xanax at bedtime to ward off nightmares. They were pretty scary and I was afraid the fear they roused in me might trigger another heart attack.

During the day, I control my anxiety with self-talk and the comfort of knowing that all aspects of my life are in God's hands. But when you're asleep, you can't access the conscious to stave off anxiety. I think nightmares are a manisfestation of anxiety. :ph34r:

I found these message boards a few days ago, and am presently spending 2-3 hours a day here, browsing, reading and learning about my newly dx Celiac Sprue.

Thanks to all who contribute such helpful information. :)

Regards to all

Maryellen

It's comforting (sort of) that many of us have similiar responses to accidental gluten consumption, but I find tired thing to be really annoying. At the first sign of distress I try to drink as much water as possible. It helps to keep my body digesting the bad stuff. I usually console myself that the sooner it passes, the sooner I'll feel better. If it happens to be afternoon and not evening (the normal time for bad reactions), I recommend eating a light meal anyway-not skipping the meal. It seems to keep my stomach on a better cycle and proper nutrition is so important for us. (I am underweight still, no matter how hard I try to consume calories.) What's hard for the non-gluten-free to comprehend the exhaustion. It feels like a truck just ran over you, but satisfying sleep is impossible following an episode and a long day at work the following day is simply inevitable. Relaxing (or trying to) with a cup of tea helps my sanity on bad days.

    • Weird things people have said
      You are right Dania, you cannot have "mild Coelic" disease and you cannot eat "a bit of gluten here and there" if you've been gluten free for a while. Coelic disease is a lifetime commitment to being gluten free, even if you don't have symptoms, it is still damaging the villi in the gut, which can lead to more serious health problems, (not that Coelic disease is not serious, because it is).  Some people may question whether it is safe to use the same colander as those cooking gluten, but it depends how well it is washed up as it is quite easy to miss bits. Personally, I bought a new one and I would definitely not use the same sieve as the mesh is far too tight not to collect  small amounts of gluten. I'm not too surprised at doctors not knowing all they should know about Coelic disease, it's the same here in the UK where Coelic UK actually advise doctors on the disease.

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.

      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
