Can't Sleep Enough
0

3 posts in this topic

I had to eat gluten for a while and now I'm able to eat mostly gluten-free but even though I've been feeling better, I can't seem to get enough sleep now. I slept for 10 hours straight today and 5 hours later I really want to to sleep again. I can't figure it out besides that I'm not getting enough vitamins (which I cannot afford to buy right now either) & I have very active dreams (always have) ranging from weird to night terrors. Which are probably the causes, right?

Does this happen to anyone else? :|

wait, r u still eating gluten? gluten can really cause a lot of sleep issues, it's been linked to sleap apnea & narcolepsy, among many things. i overslept all the time when i used to eat gluten, i would never even hear the alarm clock, or i would sleepwalk to turn it off and never have memory of it.

and thyroid issues can cause nightmares & sleep issues too.

You say you are now eating "mostly gluten free" but if you are getting any gluten at all the effect could be the sleepy drowsy disturbed sleep that you are experiencing.

You need to get rid of all gluten if you want your sleep to improve. It sounds more like gluten is getting you than vitamin deficiencies. Vivid dreams and nightmares and night terrors are common symptoms of gluten even from cross contamination.

You will have to look closely at how you may be getting gluten and get really strict about your diet and the cross contamination. I hope it gets better soon.

There are some people who experience withdrawal symptoms from going gluten free and this may also be what is happening if you are sure you aren't getting gluten.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
