Topics I've Started

Anxiety And Depression

28 March 2013 - 04:03 PM

I know Anxiety and Depression are quite common illnesses but I have read many article's etc about people with celiac disease having double the risk of getting these conditions . Do we get a different form of Anxiety and Depression ? I know vitamin deficiency especially vitamin D can cause depression , and lots of Celiac's have vitamin D deficiency .


I have had depression and anxiety since the end of 2008 , I think it's mainly due to my health problems , my sister's health problems and 1 or 2 other things . I really don't know how to fix my anxiety and depression :( I have been to family counselling and had counselling by myself which helps a bit . I also have taken many vitamin D supplements since 09 but my level just won't go up much .


I did wonder about self help workbooks for anxiety and depression anyone tried these ? I'm just worried the anxiety and depression is caused by celiac disease or the problems I mentioned above I just don't understand how I can fix these problems as I can't change what has happened with celiac disease or the other problems that I mentioned above if they are the cause of the anxiety and depression which i'm 99 % sure they are . It's very frustrating having physical pain due to complications of celiac disease and than these anxiety and depression problems on top are very difficult to deal with too.


If anyone has any on advice that would be great ?


Thanks :)

Celiac's Not Sticking To The gluten-free Diet

29 December 2012 - 03:27 PM

Tonight I feel so angry because yesterday I read on a different site a idiot who apparently has celiac disease and didn't stick to the gluten-free diet for years . I have read so many stories of dingbats who think there so cool by not sticking to the gluten-free diet and than suddenly they want to stick to it. Makes me so angry I know it's there choice and I will admit this is really about my frustrating health problems , it annoys me so much , I have been ill for 7.5 years I stuck to my diet 1000 % since day one and have problem after problem and than I read comments about people who apparently have celiac disease don't stick to the diet and are fine health wise :( These people should be ill and going through bad pain and tests , not people who take the gluten-free diet seriously ! Rant over !

Anyone else get annoyed by Celiac's who think the gluten-free diet doesn't apply to them ?

New Stomach Pains :(

13 November 2012 - 12:39 PM

9 days ago I started getting new and different stomach pains , the pain is almost like my stomach is being pinched and it reallys really tight and quite hard. Also last week I started getting back pains pretty much the same pain that has started in my stomach ( and possibly pain in the kidneys ). Than on friday I noticed the colour of my stools became very dark and and than a different colour over the weekend . Than since yesterday I have been burping lots.

I have been to see my GP doctor and he said I need to go back to my Gastro but that's gonna be a few weeks I think . I also did a urine test at the doctors it's been sent to the lab because of traces of protein .

But i'm kinda worried what's going on , I did wonder because of the stool colour changes if maybe I had some kind of stomach infection but I have no D or fever or anything . I just been reading about stomach ulcer's can cause stomach and back pains ( Also seem to be having ulcer's in my mouth lately) . My pains seem quite bad at night in both the stomach and back and it's very difficult to get to sleep but once i'm alseep the pain doesn't wake me up . And when I wake up in the morning the pain is not bad but gets bad as the day goes on and than i'm just getting the stomach or back pain for almost most of the day .

Just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem , or might know what's going on ?

Don't Know What To Do ?

10 July 2012 - 02:23 AM

Hi , I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003 and the last 8 years I have had a lot of other health problems mainly back and stomach problems . After about a year and a half on the gluten-free diet I started getting depression and anxiety nothing to bad just a couple of days but the last few years since really since late 2008 it's been getting worse and worse , I have been to counselling many times and I'm currently going at the moment . I was told by the counsellor I need tablets for depression and anxiety . I have been to my GP and have been prescribed Citalopram but I really don't want to take it because of all the side effects.

I'm 100 % sure my depression and anxiety is related to celiac disease or maybe a vitamin deficiency ? I have got a vitamin D deficiency and haven't been able to take vitamin D since february because of kidney stones . But I wonder about other vitamin deficiencies causing the anxiety or depression is that likely ?

I have also read many article's about having celiac disease causing depression and anxiety . I just want to drink alcohol as that helps my stomach and my mind but that's not a good solution . I think it's the gluten-free diet that caused all the problems and after almost 10 years i'm really fed up with the gluten-free diet I really hate celiac disease. Does anyone have any advice to what is causing the depression and anxiety and if it could be connected to celiac disease or some vitamin deficiencies etc ?

Thanks :)
