In Topic: Is This Withdrawal?

16 May 2013 - 09:26 AM

Yes, I had slight headaches in the back of my head and frontal lobe that weren't severe but just irritating. About a week for me until they went away completely. I also cut out caffeine completely the same day that I went gluten free so that may have been the cause for mine.

Sorry about your child.

Thank you all for your suggestions and your help. You have no idea how much this is helping. :D

Into the 2nd week gluten-free and here is what's going on.
Decreased appetite
Sharper senses
Better concentration
Memory is better
Very very thirsty
Vivid erotic dreams
Regular BM once every morning
Elevated mood
Sense of increased Lobito
Cravings for salt or salty foods or beverages
Muscle cramping (while climbing cell towers) which I don't know if its the warmer weather or a lack of potassium, dehydration or all of it.
My meds are stronger than usual. No surprise there. I'm going to get in to my dr. ASAP for blood level tests.
Ringing in my ears constantly. I think that is a symptom of one medication that I take when there is too much in the blood stream.
Did I mention thirst?? Holy cow
The invisible cloud in my brain seems to be going away. I didn't realize how bad it was until now
Skin is drying and peeling in some areas

I did have a minor setback though. I ate some of my favorite beef jerky and what a big mistake that was. Oh my. Abdominal pains, bloating and swelling. I threw the rest in the trash and now I'm paying the price. I read the label and all was ok but they do not say what is in their recipe as far as "other flavoring" is concerned. I guess that would be giving the completion their secret ingredient which sets them apart from the rest. Well it didn't agree with me at all.

I just wanted to share my experience and maybe get some feed back on this.

Thank you again everyone.

Interesting. Thank you. And yes, one day at a time.

In Topic: 1 Wk. Gluten-Free: Lack Of Appetite Normal?

14 May 2013 - 04:47 AM

I too don't have much of an appetite and am less than 2 weeks into my gluten-free diet. When I do eat, I'm full with a lesser amount of food and for a longer duration. I eat at about 11:00am and then again at 6:00pm. No munches anymore either. Not sure if this will continue or balance out. I have about 5 lbs to lose so this should be a good thing?
