How Long For Anxiety (And Other Symptoms) To Go Away Or Get Better?

How long for the anxiety to go away?

(if it is indeed in reaction to gluten)

I'm not talking about anxiety ABOUT celiac symptoms, I am talking about anxiety in and of itself (generalized anxiety disorder, panick attacks, eaxagerated fear and startle responses,...).

4 days into the gluten free thing, and I am the same.

the ONLY thing that is better is my GI symptoms, though they were rarelly extreme, my digestion is much better, overall.

It can take weeks, months, sometimes over a year. The fact that you're seeing some improvement is good but you really have to give it time.

My panic attacks abated after the first month. I still get anxiety but it's lessening slowly. I expect another several months before it's gone entirely.

Hmm, that sounded a little harsh and I didn't intend it to.

But I really believe time and patience is what's going to heal you best.

It took me about three months to really notice a difference and I would say I have had that problem since high school (mid 80's).

My GP said that unfortunately it might be that my anxiety is unrelated to my gluten intolerance. I'd hoped cutting out gluten, sugar and caffeine would see improvements, but I don't see any pattern (except with caffeine but only with excessive amounts) and for me it's been 8 months.

Still, 4 days is very early. I hope you continue to see improvements and that for you it does resolve. All the best!

Thanks everyone. It's noce to read about all the different expeirences. I am on day 5 of being gluten free and my digestion is so much better. I *think* I am sleeping a bit better and also i am not waking up with this cloud of black depression over my head (which felt like a physical pain, like my brain was affected). I don,t know how much of it is psycho somatic (placebo effect?) and how much of it is real...

Also, I am no longer craving anything and everything wheat and bakery item, which I always was. cake, pie, muffins, baguette, english muffins, pita, bagels, you name it, I had to stuff myself with those each day.

We were hoping the gluten-free diet would cure our son's anxiety but now it seems that may be something else, maybe nightshades.
