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.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
