In Topic: Did You Have A Trigger That Started Your Symptoms?

06 July 2010 - 04:41 PM

For my part, I can recall different moments when celiac disease seemed to be triggered (with stress, diet change etc.) but I think the strongest one was when I got a whole lot of vaccines (before travelling abroad). My already very fragile health definitly deterioted.
I have never had to get vaccines again since but I actually would be quite worried if I had to.

In Topic: Gluten Reactions

CC will usually give me a burning feeling in the stomach/belly plus nausea, diarrhea, brain fog and fatigue for a couple of hours or the rest of the day. If I actually have a bite of something containing gluten, it feels like I drank bleach! Terrible "cramps" for a couple a hours (like burning with spasms; can barely walk or move), diarrhea followed by constipation (for a couple of days), extreme fatigue, depression, bloating, sore joints, mouth ulcers, and I might be forgetting a few more(very intense for 1-2 days and usually goes away after 4-5 days).But, put short, it's something you just really don't want to happen.

In Topic: Sudden Insomnia After Going Gluten Free

05 July 2010 - 05:42 PM

Same here! For years I have had either a toasts or cereal before bed. I thought it was the carbs that were making me sleepy (I was eating pretty much low carb all day). But no! I realised when I went gluten-free that it was actually the bad stuuf that was knocking me out. I have noticed how sleepy I get when I come in contact with the tiniest amount of gluten.
Since going gluten-free (2 years ago) I have tried about every trick and remedy. I good snack seems to help, I also found some natural herbal mix that is quite effective and sometimes some yoga helps. But every night I have to keep the same relaxing routine and I make sure I only go to bed when I'm quite sleepy.
I am now realising I was "using" gluten as a sleeping peel and was quite addicted...
It's frustrating at first but my now sleep (and without a doubt my health) is constantly getting better. :)
Hope you also find tricks that work for you. ;)
