Sleep Apnea After Being Gluttened
0

3 posts in this topic

Ok, so I was never diagnosed with sleep apnea but I often had problems gasping for air in the night. And my brother has major sleep apnea. I noticed after going gluten free however, this completely stopped happening. Yesterday I ate sauce that I thought was gluten free but turns out had wheat in it. When I tried to fall asleep last night, every time I would just start to drift I would jerk up gasping for air. I have noticed this only happens the night of being gluttened. It boggles my mind...how one causes the other!? :blink:

Oh, I am new to this forum, and trying gluten free for the past weeks, but please explain more. when I figured I had this I tried to stop taking in gluten. was good for a few days and added mustard I thought was gluten free to add some taste to my chicken. when I was done eating it felt like my heart was racing, it was late, went to bed, and every second I though I was about to fall asleep BOOM, weird twitch that woke me before I could sleep even for a second, and heart stared racing. I did not sleep and it was last night, Im hoping this does not last more than a day, almsot scared to eat.

Welcome to the forum Kre8sioN! It is definitly scary when you stop breathing-ecspecially with your heart racing! When you said weird twitch are you referring to not being able to breath or something else?

I haven't really exeprienced a racing heart before but I have heard other people who experience that on this forum. After I went gluten free for about 3 months I accidentally got glutened through communion bread at church. That night, every time I tried to fall asleep-I woke up gasping for air. I didn't pick up on the trend until being gluttened another two times. Each time I kept waking up gasping for air the very same night I was glutened. Then a light bulb went on and I did some researrch and found it could very well be connected.I know gluten is not always the cause of sleep apnea but I believe it is in my case since I don't have a problem when I am gluten free. :)
