How do you handle sleep episodes like this where you feel headachy and sick and can't get anything worthwhile done? luckily I'm not employed atm, but I mean to be soon.

I've dealt with extreme sleepiness before but that was when I was actually out and about doing things, not just sitting around eating and watching TV and then sleeping. I can't handle this; I want it to stop TT_TT I feel like a failure at life

there was a time when I first moved here that I fell asleep then woke up naturally 8/9 hours later and had energy all day. what happened to that...?



I've been less vigilant on my diet the past 2-3 months and I've definately been in the same boat. The amount of over-sleeping I do seems to relate to how much gluten I ingest. Right before my diagnosis, I ate a handfull of crackers, and I was so tired I couldn't get out of bed for 2 days! Now I'm in the same boat again for not checking ingredients. I usually drink lots of liquids, eat soups, fruits, and easy-to-digest foods (though I crave everything but when I get glutened), and just sleep it out. It sucks when no amount of anything will keep you awake... I hope you get better!

I think it's hilarious that this thread was updated the day after I fell asleep at six pm and woke up at six am... but! I'm now gluten, dairy, and soya free, and keeping hydrated, and I don't have this problem really anymore. I slept 12 hours last night because I cycled 40+ km over the weekend and went on a 2 hr hike to boot. but on normal days I get by without any naps and I have more energy than usual... I'm not at 100% all the time, but who is? My magic number is between 7 and 9 hours of sleep a night.

I posted this a little while back... (in a different thread, got no reply). well, now I'm in the same boat again.

This time I slept nine hours last night, got up to eat brunch and watch TV, then slept about 2+ hours. My head feels funny and I could totally fall asleep again. My body is screaming at me to but I'm going to wait as long as I can and try to sleep at night instead.

What you are describing about sleep and getting up and then an hour or two later going back to sleep --that is exactly what I have been experiencing! That is my weekend: sleep for 9 or more hours, get up eat, watch a little tv, and then back to sleep again for 2 to 4 hours. Then up for a few hours and back to sleep again. Sometimes I am only up for 2 hours at a time. Give me a place to lay down -anyplace, anytime and I can sleep. I have not gotten much done on the weekends in months, all I do on the weekend is take a lot of naps.

I do have to say that I was just diagnosed 2-1/2 months ago and have not stayed completely true to the gluten-free diet.
This sleep pattern on the weekends has been what I have experienced for most of the last year.

If I have a place to go, something to do, then I don't sleep as much, and it does not seem to affect me in a bad way at all. But, staying home on the weekend, then I take a lot of naps.
