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.

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      so i was just recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and I am having trouble wrapping my head around it.... While i know that maintaining a gluten free diet is going to help me feel better - i can't get over the fact that i cannot eat my favorite foods anymore.. no more pizza, no more pasta, no more wheat thins.......... yes i realize there are gluten free versions of all of these but it's obviously just not the same.  I can't just go out and grab a couple drinks at the bar with my friends anymore..... i really do not know how to handle this and it's already wearing me down.  I feel like after living for 28 years my entire life has flipped upside down and everything is going to change... i'm sorry for sounding like such a lost puppy but i just wanted to vent a little bit and see how you all deal with this... i told my friends about it and they act like it is so not a big deal at all but to me it feels like my world has come crashing down 
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Good evening, I tested positive about 15 years ago. I have a 3 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I just had them both tested for Celiac's. Ped ran a celiac panel. My son the nurse said was all in normal range however my daughters IGA total was 23, range (24-121) so she test positive. The doctor wants to run more blood work to make sure it's not a false positive. My gut says she has it. She does not like any bread or cookies so she really only gets gluten from pasta and goldfish so to even test positive on an almost gluten-free diet make me concerned. Is there anything I should ask the doctor to test for or better tests for kids? I just don't want to miss anything.  Before when I would bring it up at visits the doctors always said that since they did not have any failure to thrive ( always top of growth charts) that they weren't showing any symptoms. I never had any issues with losing weight.  My only complains or constipation joint pain and gas which she has both. Thanks for any advice.    
    • food allergies
      being new to this, I have started avoiding gluten and dairy. I seem to be sensitive to other foods like corn, tomatoes, bananas, and possibly grains and sugars. I still get puffy in the face whenever I eat certain things. other than blood testing, does any meds help with this? Also, is gas X gel tablets ultra strength gluten free? 
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Welcome!   I am not a doctor, but with your test results you should continue to go forward in the diagnostic process.   My main symptom was anemia and I didn't even have gut issues at all!  People with celiac disease can present in many ways.  My blood test was mildly positive yet my biopsy (via endoscopy) revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage. I would spent time learning about celiac disease and make sure you do not start the gluten free diet before all testing is complete.  This is critical in getting an accurate diagnosis.   Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
