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!

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

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.
