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.
