In Topic: How Long Does It Take You To Wake Up In The Mornings?

04 April 2013 - 04:05 AM

I always have to give myself several extra hours before I start work or have breakfast. If I eat right after I wake up, this ends up blocking up my system, causing a bloated stomach and extreme discomfort throughout the rest of the day.

Anybody else have this problem?

Also--although I love to have a snack late at night--I have to avoid this. Interestingly enough, just a small piece of rice cake can mess me up for the next day.

Unlike my family, my weight can swing wildly in one day, sometimes up to ten pounds' difference throughout the day. I always thought that was just a personal quirk but has anyone else with Celiac/sensitivities experienced this?

I also have this problem - It takes me at least an hour to get myself going and before I can even think about eating breakfast.. even then, eating breakfast seems to be a bit of struggle.  But once I get going, I start feeling good enough to start my day.. it is more of a gradual thing.. but this is my daily routine anymore.


In Topic: Serotonin & Celiac & Depression

I love getting into the chemical aspects of this disease as I know from personal experience it is not just "a change in diet" and what one eats. I reaad an interesting article on alcohol and GABA receptors and how glutimate is a primary up-regulation In the production of excitetory nuerotransmitters, and seratonin, all which further a drinkers tolerance to alcohol. Chronic consumption of alcoholic beverages, and the consequent chronic sedation causes a counter regulatory response in the brain to maintain balance..
Google dilirium tremens amd read the wikipedia article

In Topic: Where To Begin

Thank you for your response - and yes I mean the celiac crisis where I felt I had pneumonia like symtoms, hot and cold sweats, brain fog, completely confused and out of it. I called an ambulance and they told me you look sick, can you get someone from your family to take you to the doc because this is not good use for an ambulance... I called my brother but he coulnd get off work and told me to tuff it out for a few hours and would come get me... I started hyperventaling so bad I could barely breath. By the time my brother showed up had fnished a half a bottle of brandy - seemed to be the only thing could stop the shakes etc...so he thinks I'm just drunk and takes me to the emergency room where the hook me up with a IV, give me a few Ativan and literature on alcoholism and send me on my way.
