Neurological Symptoms

4 posts in this topic

For those with neurological symptoms from gluten, how long does it take for them to subside after being glutened? How long did it take to feel better after going gluten free?

My 8 yr old daughter is suffering (and in turn me too). I don't know for sure it's the gluten since she has another medical condition too. But I am desperate for information to try to help her. She's been gluten free for 1 1/2 years but I could be better regarding the cross contamination or hidden gluten. I know she's been glutened recently several times from my stupidity.

I've been gluten-intolerant since getting the flu last September. CC results in my GI tract purging and minor lethargy, but being slapped upside the GI tract by a bit gluten hit results in a stronger reaction. I suspect everyone has different reactions, rate of reactions, and recovery times. For me, a heavy gluten hit results in depression, mood swings, and lethargy that take about 5 days to go away. GI symptoms take about 3 days. My emotions aren't severe, especially because they are due to gluten, rather than being tied to life experiences. I can ignore most of it, but that is an advantage of age, too. If I was young I think the mood swings would hit me harder, especially with the feelings of isolation that come with "not fitting in" and not being able to eat some of what most people do. There are so many unknowns and what-if's with gluten intolerance, that it takes an emotional toll even without the gluten-induced mood swings. Best wishes on your research. It takes a lot of strength to question and look for answers.

I personally have really strong Neurological side effects from gluten, including: feeling irritable, depressed, "out of it" tunnel vision, inability to focus and pay attention, quick tempered, etc. For me, it partially depends on how much gluten I have ingested. For instance, if it were cross contamination, I would experience symptoms within an hour or so and may feel the Neurological symtpoms for a couple hours. If it was something more substantial (such as a cro

It took 6 months before the neuro symptoms were noticably improved. I still have significant problems though 2 years later. Every time I get cross contamination, I get 5-7 days of terrible neuro symptoms and then 2-4 weeks of diminishing neurosymptoms. Unfortunatly, I'm hypersensitive and manage to CC myself every 6 weeks or so.

    • 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. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
