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 hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
