I'm Always Tired.

08 November 2005 - 08:30 PM

Ever since I started my gluten-free diet in about May 05 I've been extremely tired all the time.
At night I get about 7-8 hours of sleep, wake up at 6 and go to school for about 7 hours. Then as soon as I get home from school I'm too tired to stay awake and take 4-5 hour nap, then wake up to eat dinner, do homework, take a shower, then I get extremely tired again and go to bed.
I have noticed that when I wake up I don't feel well rested unless I get 14-16 hours of sleep at a time.
I started taking vitaims for some more enegry and eating a bigger, healthier breakfast but it doesn't really seem to help.
I hate this because if I don't take a nap during the day and I go out I feel dead and if I sleep I miss out on the whole day.
Is this a side affect of celiac disease or a gluten-free diet? Does anyone else feel like this?

I noticed something call glutimate (sp?) in some foods?
Is that like a gluten related thing or what?
