Do You Get Crazy When Glutened?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hey all. I've been gluten free for almost 6 months. A few times I think I have been glutened I get pain in stomach very quickly but the next day I get mood swings, rage and really crazy thoughts. Yesterday I was talking suicide to my mum

she was freaking out. They funny thing is I had no intention of killing myself it was the rage talking. But by late last night it had worn off and I was all good again.

Has anyone else experienced this or something similar?

The biggest symptoms I had with celiac was mental health issues, all have since cleared up after diagnosis and going gluten free. I suppose it makes sense its the place hardest hit when I get glutened.

Any help would be great.

Many thanks

Many of us experience mood swings, anger, depression, migraines, and other neurological problems after eating gluten (hopefully, it was accidental!). Some of us even feel dizzy, but it clear up after a day or two. What you're experiencing is normal, so I hope you can keep from getting glutened in the future.

Well the long and the short of my story is YES - I do get awful mood swings when I'm glutened. Generally I'm a very happy person and am always laughing but when I get glutened it becomes a pretty nasty scenario. My fiance has been as understanding as he can be - he now sees a certain look in my eyes, says "glutened?" and when my nostrils flare, he heads for the hills, and FAST. I dont mind, he's only trying to save himself afterall. Cant blame him. From the reading I have done it seems that the mood swings are a pretty common occurance. Mine dont hang around for long, and I'm hoping you have some relief too...best wishes!

Thanks guys. I've had mood swings before like all people do but these swings are different. Its almost like I can't stop myself. And im also generally happy too. My mum told me this morning it was like she was talking to a crazy person yesterday.

I think about suicide when I am glutened - not with any actual intent, but the thoughts come almost like they are being sent in by someone else. Very weird.

I also get suicidal when glutened and very depressed. For me it lasts only about 24 hours. I keep it together by knowing it will lift soon and it is part of the effect for me. Those feelings are the first indication that I am glutened and I know I am in for a rough couple of weeks after due to the symptoms that follow.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
