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.

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
