Not sure if this is the right forum for this, or not... still navigating my way around here. My daughter, who has a positive blood test but is waiting on the scope, has begun having night terrors, in addition to several other behavioral issues that have cropped up recently. Naturally, I have been wondering if it's a result of the gluten consumption. Has anybody else noticed a connection between gluten consumption and night terrors? She will begin screaming, sometimes 2-3 times in one night, without actually fully waking up. My son did the same thing, and we suspect gluten intolerance with him as well. (Incidentally, one other child of ours has never had night terrors, and is hands-down the healthiest of the bunch; we've never suspected Celiac with her).
My 9 year old son has had horrible night terrors (or nightmares, the jury is out on this one) for most of his life. Since going gluten-free three months ago, the night terrors have disappeared and his sleep is much less restless. However, he still wakes up throughout the night and will not be alone. I think that years of nightmares have caused a lot of residual anxiety. I hope things improve for your daughter!
