This is going to sound nuts, but before going gluten free did any of you feel like you were high all the time. Not like "I just smoked a big doobie high" but just sort of spaced out. I was off gluten for a week and a half and felt somewhat better, then I ingested some this past weekend and today and yesterday I've felt spacey and my stomach sounds like its declaring war on itself. Mild pain tho and some semi-diarrhea.

Gluten and casein both are known to have an 'opiate' effect on the brain. That is why many have had sucess treating ADHD and autism spectrum disorders with a gluten-free/Casein Free diet.

slightly... not really high.. but spaced out and VERY MUCH ENJOYING MY FOOD... i also get extreme pleasure while eating cheese... which i have not been able to get off of.. still addicted.

it also felt like a drug, cause u cant stop- ie: if i was to eat a bowl of fettucini bolognese (real gluten pasta)- id prolly get up to fix 3 more bowls.. but now with rice pasta- i may fix a 2nd bowl.. but thats it

I really noticed more when I was accidentally getting slipped some gluten. It's like my brain feels a ZING! Then I feel like eating the rest of the food that has the gluten is like sAtisfyinG the munchies, THE BEST THING I EVER TASTED! WOW!

I told my husband if I ever start acting like that again when I 'm eating to take it away, because it has gluten.

I'm talking like when I stopped gluten I felt pretty good. Like a dodo I ate some this weekend and now today my stomach is making crazy noises, I have D and I feel like I'm spacey and going cross eyed

That's a pretty common reaction to getting glutened. It will pass but it may take a few days.

    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.
