In Topic: Anyone Recover From Chronic Insomnia After Going gluten-free?

03 January 2013 - 12:14 PM

Hello everyone, I am newly diagnosed with a biopsy of celiac sprue. I am so grateful for all your posts these past weeks as I began the adjustment process to a gluten-free lifestyle. I also have huge issues with insomnia. I have heard this may be related to anemia which is known to cause insomnia, I am lucky to sleep 6 hours and then I still feel awfull, after staying awake till usually 3am feeling stress and pain.
I have hypothyroid, anemia, asthma, constipation, early menopause, symptoms of arthritis which are easing since going gluten-free, wild mood swings and mostly depression..... which I am hanging tough through since I figure it will eventually pass, three years now like this and I've never experienced anything so awful.
I mostly take valerian with some hot tea before bedtime and melatonin right as I'm climbing into bed and then shut off the light and hope I sleep .
Hope this helps, valerian is not addictive and you can adjust the amount you take depending on how it affects you. Also it wears off better than benadryl.
