Angry At Everything All The Time
0

7 posts in this topic

My other symptoms are up and down but slowly getting better. My sleep improved very quickly.

But still I 'fly off the handle' and get really angry and shout at the stupidest, tiniest things. It's making things really difficult at home as I live in a tiny one-room flat with a close friend and our friendship's stretched to breaking point at times because I shout at him for *every* tiny thing. I try to control myself but I just get so wound up and angry.

If this is related to gluten, will it *eventually* go away?

The first time we went gluten free, it took about 2 months to "settle in". Some other mood triggers the household had were casein (milk) and artificial colors (especially red) and artificial vanilla (vanillin). If it doesn't settle in, you may want to look into these.

I was very easily agitated when my thyroid was misbehaving (hyperthyroidism/Graves). Meds now have my thyroid calmed down and I am much more relaxed about things in general. You might consider asking your doc to add a TSH test (and perhaps thyroid antibodies) to your next blood test... Good luck.

It took about 3-4 months before my general outlook improved greatly. Now (12 months later) I wake up early (I was always a bad morning person), I never 'lose it' and my relationship with my 9y/o son has never been better. I want to laugh and take an interest in other peoples stories. Just having a good conversation is amazing! I had to reduce my salicylates (sals for short) and in the past couple of months it has made a massive difference to my dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) and my general outlook of life. I agree with previous posters. You may just need time but keep a food diary in case you have another intolerance.

I believe this was checked last year; the results were normal.

And take out MSG along with the other posters suggestions. I am about 99% free of processed foods and I believe it is what has made the biggest difference. Takes out all the junk and chemicals and chances of cross contamination

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
