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.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
