Hi Folks

I am new to the forum, and have a question. I have dealt with sleep problems for the best part of 20 years, and am now wondering if it could be Celiac related. I try to watch my diet as closely as I can, but have suffered miserably with my sleep issue. I cannot get to sleep, and if and when I do, I can stay asleep.

Does anybody think this could be Celiac/gluten related?

Definitely. That is why there is a section of this board for sleep problems. Some of us use stretching exercises or warm baths to help. Others require medication. You might want to do a search or look through some of the old posts about this. There is a lot of info on different approaches to the problem.

I used to have a hell of a time getting proper sleep. Now that I have been gluten-free it has improved. Also if I don't exercise regularly I don't sleep very well. I have been taking some melatonin at night and that seems to help also.

Sleep is definitely connected with celiac. I used to always need sleep no matter how much sleep I got I was always tired and had the worst time getting to sleep.
