Gluten Was Causing Schizo Problems

29 posts in this topic

I understand GFinDC,

But i think there are so many open questions.

Like, why did grains eliminate my problems (not eating them).

Why did I sometimes feel crazy even from eating too many carbs.

So, what im trying to say, is maybe im not celiac, maybe its some sort of other issue.

There are just so many theories out there. Like what if a gut imbalance causes this or that. And maybe not eating grains (if u cant fully digest them), your gut bacteria come back to normal.

I have no idea, but i think personally i can cheat, but my last grain free 2 month stretch i never cheated.

Thanks

I think you have answered your own question.  While removing grains you feel better.  Up to you.  Life is so much better when your body is functioning properly.

 

I do not recall if you were ever tested for Celiac Disease -- to me -- it does not matter.  You have found you are healthier without grains which likely means you should remove all gluten.  

 

Again, up to you.

CanineGluten, thanks for making me smile. Your posts are quite entertaining, especially the one that has you not eating any grains but drinking a beer.

I can't imagine trying to eliminate all grains all at once. It doesn't surprise me at all that you keep going back to having them in your diet.

How about focusing on just gluten, which is highly likely to be causing problems for you, but keeping other grains like rice, which would be less suspect ... and would give you the carbs you need for energy?

So that means getting rid of anything made from wheat, barley and rye, and all of the hidden sources of gluten. Think you can get by on wine and tequila until you can track down a gluten-free beer?

And though it is tough at first, doing some more research into what to avoid  when it comes to hidden sources of gluten (such as malt) and ways to avoid contamination can make going gluten free a ton easier and less painful.

Best of luck to you. When you do get things sorted out, Netflix would be a great way to catch up on all of those movies you've missed.

Im now simply removing gluten. Still eating rice.

But doing this 2-3 days and already noticing 100%

improvement.

Medication cant always help so if this is the root

Cause then hallelula.

Just weird how gluten took so long to manifest into

auditory hallucinations. Hate saying that! But

Its crazy.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
