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.

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful.
