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.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

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.
