ok
ive been trying to be gluten and dairy free for 2 weeks now( 90% id say) im having trouble saying no when someones made me a dinner or if im out shopping an we go for lunch. so my acid reflux has completely disappeared but my sleep patterns have changed.
from sleeping from 12 midnight to 7.15 in the morning, no dreams, no waking up- dont think id have noticed if a brass band had played a whole concert in my bedroom, to literally not being sleepy, im wide awake and when i finally sleep im having vivid dreams of the willy wonka/ texas chainsaw massacre variety :unsure: . its completely doing my head in!!! last night i woke up, lay there a bit - wide awake and thought oh well i may as well get up. when i checked the clock it was 3.45am , i cant cope not sleeping and coz my symptoms are anxiety related i find im overanalyzing the dreams.
is this common to have your sleep patterns change when going gluten free coz it driving me bonkers!!!!! :blink:

Hi, I have had vivid dreams/nightmares for a while but I haven't noticed any corelation between what I eat and what I dream about. I find that if I nap 15 minutes in the evening that I don't have any nightmares during my real sleep.

Could be your symptoms of gluten withdrawal. :ph34r:

I've noticed crazy dreams as well. ........and troubles sleeping. I found out about the celiac a month ago. I was very careful, but got glutened when I ate at a restaurant (twice in the same week!)

I'm feeling extremely tired and my whole body hurts. My doctor says it's normal and might take a while to get back to normal.

I cannot wait

You might be wise to limit restaurant eating for a while until you get more experienced with the diet and which places are safe to eat at ;)
