Thanks Everyone- when I get glutened I fall asleep fine but wake up at 4 or 5 a.m. (I play the kitchen fairy and do stuff around the house when I can't sleep) but then at like 11:30 I'm exhausted and have to nap. I'm wondering what other people experience. Thanks, Beverly

When glutened I usually have a lot of trouble getting to sleep and then wake up alot throughout the night. I am also sleepy no matter how much sleep I get when I am glutened.

Gluten makes me very sleepy, but I have a hard time going to sleep and I wake up a lot during the night. I think it's becasue gluten makes me very anxious for no reason... and no matter how tired I am, my body just has a hard time shutting itself down at night.

I have always had trouble sleeping. I can never seem to fall asleep, but boy can I sleep for hours on end when I am on gluten. When I lay off gluten, I sleep less, am less tired and fall asleep easily.

when I get glutened, I get overtired. I feel like I haven't slept for ages. This also happens when I accidently eat other foods I am allergic to. It actually happened with chick fill-a fries. I was so happy they were gluten-free. I didn't clue into the fact that they were cooked in peanut oil. After 2 hours, I was in the bed, with terrible fatigue. I could barely lift my head.

I've been gluten-free 4 mo. now--the 1st. couple of months gluten-free, it seemes like I couldn"t get enough sleep. I would fall asleep around 10PM and sleep dead till 7AM or so. I would want to lie down in the afternoon as well. At the moment, the pattern seems to be: fall asleep pretty easily, but wake early (5AM or so). I accidently used a soap which I think must have contained gluten a few days ago and during this time I have been waking up every couple of hours all night and still waking at 5. This AM the cramps seem to be gone :) had Cream of Rice for breakfast (so far, so good) hopefully I'll sleep through the night tonight. Also, I dream much more vividly now since gluten-free). Maybe for some reason, I remember them more?...

I wake up early when my symptoms are flaring up and sleep later after they calm down a bit. It's like when I need the rest most i can't get it!

I don't notice a difference at night when I am glutened, but during the day I can't keep my eyes open! That is one way I know I have been glutened... I will be sitting in a chair one minute and sound asleep the next!! Can NOT keep my eyes open!! It is like I have been drugged. NOT fun!

Carriefaith,

I'm so new to this site so don't know if I can get a responce from you even if you post one..I too get so hyper...I feel like my insides are stuck in neutral and running 1.000 miles per hr. Can't seem to calm down. I thought being 'gluten' made you tired, sluggish, and foggy. I've got so much to learn. Have been gluten free for 11 weeks then antibiotics, allergic reacton, trip to ER for breathing difficulty and HIVES the treatment was predizone and antihistimine...the predizone made me more hyper and couldn't sleep but 2-4 hrs a nite for 10days. feel like that again after eating a soup I made from BBQ'd chicken with soy sause marinade I thought was gluten-free and now know it had wheat...been on sites tonight to find the tamari...solution. So glad you posted about the hyper issue haven't seen that before or in my readings.

Thanks so much. You can always email me cause i might not find you again.

    • 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.
