I'm newly diagnosed and had my first glutening a few days ago. Awful pain. My wife and I joke about gluten and she'll tease me when getting a bowl of Cheerios saying, "I'm having gluten-o's for breakfast." Yesterday we were talking about "gluten donuts" and last night I dreamed I was eating donuts, then freaked out in the dream after realizing what they were made of.

It didn't wake me up during the dream, but when I woke up and realized I was still in bed I was happy. I know it'll happen again, but I never want to feel this way again, at least not soon.

I think I've only had one dream in 10 years about eating gluten (at least, that I can remember) but when I have to handle bread for other people I get a creepy, crawly feeling and have to go wash my hands a couple of times. Freaks me out.

Another way to end dreams or nightmares is to knock yourself out at bed time with a dose of trazadone. Yes it's a script but it is also very effective med to sleep, no nightmares, no nothing, just sleep.

I Have blocked nightmares for many many years with this. Granted, it may be difficult to stop. I have not been able to stop and probably never stop :blink:

Hehe, I remembering posting about this too. I'm now over 2 years gluten free and those dreams have pretty much gone. I had two recurring ones - one, that I was at a party and absentmindedly ate from a bowl of nibbles and the other was that I was being chased by cupcakes on little legs ;-)

It's still new, you're anxious about making mistakes, your brain is just working through it :-)

I had a dream last week that I was eating CATFOOD and it tasted pretty good! But then I realized there was gluten in it and I freaked out. I didn't mind that it was catfood, just that it had gluten. :blink:

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

LOL!

I had one like this a while back - 'cept I was eating my doggy's biscuits...woke up worried about the gluten and somehow didn't realize it would be odd to be eating dog bones until much later the following day :rolleyes:

The past two weeks or so I have been waking up in a complete panic due to dreams where I eat gluten. In the one last night I was holding something. I began to nibble on it then I realized it was bread. I got all freaked out that I was eating bread. Then I woke up! Does anyone else ever dream they are eating gluten foods? I am almost 6 months gluten free.

Yes! I dreamed I was eating Oreo cookies one time. There were others but it's been a while, I have been gluten-free for 12 years,

I just dreamed last night that I was frosting several huge chocolate cakes, then I accidentaly licked my fingers, and then panicked, lol. I have, in reality, had a few moments where I came very close to just popping something in my mouth without thinking about it. The other day I almost bit into a piece of regular pasta to see if it was done. Duh!
