What Is This?

6 posts in this topic

Several times in the past 2 weeks now I've had a feeling of not wanting to be doing anything. Today I've tried twice to take a nap and I can't sleep. It's a feeling as though it's alarming to go do something. And I don't feel like doing anything, I just want to lie down. I don't like this feeling and it's making me feel pressured and panicked about doing things I need to get done. I hope this makes some kind of sense to someone on this forum.

Feeling completely unmotivated to do anything? Like, not even fun things? Sort of listless, but with anxiety over everything you should be doing?

I felt this way a lot before starting my gluten-free diet, and it was the one thing I noticed a huge difference on. I think I experienced a brief return of this after eating gluten, but I attributed it to being tired.

Are you having any glutened symptoms that you have noticed? For me feeling like that is what I feel the first day after I have been glutened. Feeling like that could also be a sign of depression.

CC is a distinct possibility. The first two times it happened I was pretty sure I had been CC'ed the last 2 times I've been clueless what could have gotten me. Of course I work at Home Depot so I'm exposed to dry wall dust and wheat straw on a regular basis. Also my dogs still eat gluten so I may be getting my self with the dog food.

My Dr put me on 10 mg Prozac when he told me he suspected I am gluten intolerant. I have felt far less depressed since being gluten free but the feeling I had today was certainly depressing.

Thank you all so much. I feel much better just knowing it makes sense to others. Thank you.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
