This odd state of sleep so interested me, I actually wrote a novel based on it...and a possible reason for it (no, not supernatural). I'll be putting the finishing touches on my novel later this month. It's a good thing I didn't think there was a connection to celiac--that would have been a very boring novel!

I am sensitive to both gluten and milk and have just started a diet, but haven't seen any change to this yet (sleep quality seems a bit better though -- I dream more the last week than I usually do in a month).
I have been speculating this could be related to gluten and/or casein sensitivity in some way as narcolepsy is associated with autoimmune reactions to the orexin system (critical component in the regulation of sleep, wakefulness and REM). Haven't seen any research investigating this though.

im a little nervous tho- because i only had these episodes about 5 times maybe- on and off from Mid 90s to around 2005... all pre Celiac DX and pre-gluten free. so WHY this morning???? i know its *possible* that im getting too much through <20ppm gluten free junk food or cross contamination... BUT enough to bring on symptoms that i havent felt in YEARS????

Personally don't think there is a connection to Coeliac disease but it is interesting.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
