Topics I've Started

Frequent Urination

29 October 2011 - 09:55 AM

I have noticed that since being diagnosed and going gluten free that I will have time where I will go to the bathroom and then it might be 1 or 2 minutes later that I feel like I need to go again. And its not just felling like I have to go its eyes floating and can't hardly get back there in time. It seems to happen more in the mornings than later in the day. And it doesn't happen all the time, sometimes 3 or four days a week. Could this be to a diet change or possibly something else going on?

Insomnia And Leg Cramps

29 October 2011 - 04:22 AM

I am still new to gluten free. I have been gluten free, dairy free, and nuts and seeds free for a little over a month now. The problem is I'm having horrible insomnia and also leg cramps nightly. A lot of times at night it just seems that i can't shut my mind off. I also have lost aprox. 40 lbs in the last 40 day's. Is this normal when going gluten free? Am I missing some vital vitiamins or nutrients that could be causing the insomnia and cramps? The weight loss I can handle, I was overweight to begin with but the other is driving me nuts. I do feel better with all my other symptoms, and surprizingly I really dont feel tired even though I am only averageing about 2 hours of sleep a night. Any sugesstions would be great.

Being newly diagnosed I am still going through all my test. I just had my dexa scan yesterday and I was a little suprised when they measured my height to find that I am 2" shorter than I remembered.it has been several years since I was last measured but I didn't realize you could actually shrink that much in height. Has anyone ever had this problem.

Still Learning

Hi, I'm new to this forum and also new to gluten free. I was just diagnosed in Sept. of this year after a lifetime of problems. I find that I am doing well most day's with being gluten free, and I have not intentionally contaminated myself. But it is very hard to figure out all the "hidden Gluten" in a lot of products. Since diagnosis some of my gastrointestinal symptoms have stared to subside, but I still have problems on some day's and can't figure out what the heck i've had to cause them. I have now went lactose free and it helps some. I also am having a hard time with the lack of sleep if I get 3 hours a night it's a miracle. And as soon as I start to sleep the leg cramps have me right back up. I have also been loosing weight quickly, I can see why some people go gluten free just for the diet aspects. I have droped 25 pounds in a month.I get very frustrated and sometimes I just want to go hide somewhere and curl up and cry. Sorry for running on I guess I just needed to vent.
