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

    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
    • First of all, welcome to the forum! it's good to have you here. Secondly, I can really relate to the fatigue portion.  it really hadn't affected me until everything hit the ceiling medically for me.  I was constantly tired all the time, and waking feeling rested in the morning. Prone to depression and anxiety, definitely.  It drove me nuts for those first few weeks.  That's when I decided to try going off the gluten to see what happened.  I still dealt with the depression, anxiety at crazy levels, and inability to focus/concentrate, but it had gotten progressively better.  The anxiety got so bad I would have panic attacks in public areas which only ramped up the anxiety because people saw what was happening.  I would encourage you and your doctor to do a full Celiac panel before you decide to try the gluten free diet.  I had my blood work done after I was off gluten for about two months or so.  Thankfully, my levels were still high to register at least a gluten sensitivity.  Since going off gluten for almost a year now, things have started to finally appear "normal".  Whatever normal means for me now.  As I am healing from the 30 years of glutenizing, I combined both natural methods with the medical methods.  If you are interested in the different avenues of natural methods, I would be willing to share with you.  I will be praying for you as you go through this journey. Let me assure you, you are not alone in this journey.  Depending on family dynamics, they can be a great source of support.  This forum is also a great place to bounce thoughts or concerns off of.  Good luck.
    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
