In Topic: Help! Oversleep & Fatigued

20 June 2007 - 12:13 PM

I sleep all the time. I was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have been oversleeping and fatigued for years. It has become worse now. I am tired all the time all I want to do is sleep. Example today I woke up at 8pm I went to sleep yesterday at 630 pm. So I slept for over 24 hours. I go to work come home at lunch (thank God I work so close to home) and sleep for an 45 minutes. I force myself not to sleep as soon as I get home so I can take care of my kids (ie, sports practice, supper, etc). This is really effecting my work and my being able to go to my childrens sports events. I do not want to be like this. I hate it and I do not know what to do. No one understands this disease in my family. I need some support and help during this time. If I had cancer or anyother disease I would have support. Unfortunately with lack of knowledge on this disease I do not get that from people around me. Help me understand why I am so tired and sleepy ALL the time. How can I stop this?


Hi,
I have been diagnosed with celiac in 1997. Being fatiguw all the time was my problem over 6 years. I have tried everything but nothing worked. My doctor tried every test but she couldn't find the reason. Then last week I was reading in one of the Celiacs forum on the internet then I found out B-Complex vitamin helps to Celiacs patients to get rid of many symptoms like fatigueness all the time. I started to take B-Complex vitamin everyday and in two days it made a huge difference. I can't believe the difference. I feel super energetic now. Due to our diet we have mal nutrition problem.
You should try it and see if it helps.
Thanks,

In Topic: Gluten Free Shop In Boston

05 June 2007 - 10:34 AM

Hi!

Whole Food's generally has a good selection, and even their own line of gluten free stuff called The Gluten Free Pantry. Great cookies and scones! But they carry gluten-free pasta, frozen breads, and everything is cleary labeled. I frequent the one in Brighton, but there is also one in Cambridge and one off of Mass Ave. near Symphony Hall. I also frequent the Shaw's-there is one on Huntington Ave. and one off Commonwealth Ave. Both of them have pretty good natural food sections, especially the one on Huntington. And as an added bonus, that store also sells beer, wine, and liquor including the Red Bridge gluten free beer by Budweiser. Both stores, while some what expensive have a pretty good selection, and I buy all my stuff there. Try not to go to a Stop and Shop, they have zip for gluten free stuff!


Thank you for the detailed information. I will be visiting Boston next week so this is very useful info for me.
