Help! Can't Stay Awake...
Posted 02 March 2012 - 12:48 PM
It is driving me crackers. I am eating plenty of fruit and veg, and taking multivitamins, so I really don't know what else I can do to help with the sleepiness.
Does anyone have any advice please?

That was one of my worst problems. I don't think there is anything you can do to stop it while you are eating gluten. sorry

Coffee? Sleeping pills at night? Any chance you're wheat allergic as well as intolerant and an allergy pill would help? I don't know how I would survive a gluten challenge.
Thank you for your suggestions, I already have tried coffee, and have even tried 'Pro Plus' caffeine tabs-(neat caffeine) which are supposed to keep people awake and alert...but not me..lol.
I am on a lot of pain meds, so more pills are not really an option in case of reaction.(I get side effects really easily too)
I have always had night time insomnia, to the point that even sleeping pills don't work on me.
I always try not to sleep during the day because it makes the insomnia worse. Though in theory I am getting more sleep it is just exhausting sleeping on and off, on and off all day and all night with no decent stretch of quality sleep at all
I am just holding on to the fact that I am doing this for a purpose, and it will end...soon.(not soon enough)
If I am not diagnosed with celiac at the end of this, I will certainly be diagnosed as having lost my mind!

I had night time insomnia until I got onto a good multivitamin/mineral/trace and fish oil. Being off gluten so you can absorb them is probably important though...
That is interesting...
I have been taking multivitamins, fish oil and calcium+vitD supplements for quite a while, but I guess it is possible that they are not being absorbed well.
Hopefully things will improve when I am done with this challenge etc and can get back on being gluten free then

Some results came back previous saying im anemic and b12 deficient too so now on folic acid. However, after reading this forum i realised that when i eat bread or wheat just this morning as well, i suddenly become very very tired and unable to do much at all apart from sit down and practically fall asleep..........I want to live again and breathe properly again. What I'm asking is would you say that this is a celiac? Im not too sure and feel that asking my doc while waiting for results is too much to do??????/

How about caffiene? Maybe instead, boost your levels of Vitamin B12???
