Yes! I believe my anxiety is directly related to gluten and casein. I've battled anxiety on and off for a long time but a couple of years ago before I gave up dairy, my anxiety was unbearable. Every little thing would trigger it and it would last all day. I gave up dairy and it improved as did some of my other symptoms but it was still there. Since going gluten free, I haven't had a bad anxiety attack, only some smaller "moments" of anxiety. Those seem to be related to getting glutened about a little over a week ago. I think I will always be prone to anxiety but it is NOTHING like it used to be.

Hon, you keep saying "celiac disease is back again". Celiac never goes away, you have it for life.

If you "had been gluten-free for 16 years", obviously you were doing well on the diet, right? your symptoms were in remission ..but something has provoked these symptoms to return. Sorry you feel bad. I had anxiety from gluten too. I hate that feeling. :(

Did you return to eating gluten???Are you being accidentally glutened somehow? Did you change anything? someone new in the home who eats gluten, that sort of thing?
Maybe we can help you figure it out.
