Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired

7 posts in this topic

I've been on this gluten free diet for 3 weeks now. The symptoms seemed to have lessened, but I still feel so tired all the time! Every few hours I feel like I need a nap, but I have better things I could be doing! How long did it take for you to feel better??

Sorry. I just saw this. I felt tired until my iron levels got better and as a result my platelets went back to normal. You may be deficient of various vitamins which could take awhile. Did the doctor test you for those deficiencies?

I also was extra tired the first month or 2 . I think I was healing and that can make you tired.

I am in the same boat you are, I've only been gluten free for about a month now, and although the stomach pains have become less common I'm still tired all the time. We just gotta stick with it and keep in mind that we are healing and its only a matter of time before we feel good again. If you ever need anyone to talk to feel free to PM me

Oh gosh, I was exhausted the first 3 months.

I had been sick many years.

In the beginning of the diet I knew it was working.

But I still needed 10 hours of sleep at night plus naps.

The fatigue leveled off and then went away after 3 months.

But if I get glutened...no one will see me for 3 days.

I will be sleeping.

I started feeling better immediately but it took a little over a year before I really felt better overall. The best advise I can give is listen to your body....if it wants rest, give it rest! It will help you heal faster. Hope you feel better soon!

No, I wasn't tested for any of that. I guess I should try taking vitamin supplements and see if it makes a difference...
