Hi Mena,

 

I spent 30 years with extreme fatigue, BUT I HAVE RECOVERED!  I used a gluten free diet, also discovered other intolerances to avoid , and took  supplements to recover.  I hope you will look up the newbie thread (www.celiac.co...newbie-info-101/ to be sure that you are doing the best possible job staying away from gluten.  If that only tells you what you already know, I would recommend trying a SCD diet which is to help people who are not healing with a gluten free diet alone. You can google SCD diet to find what foods to use for it.   I would especially use digestive enzymes, and probiotics. 

 

I hope you will be feeling energetic again and get back to school.  If you don't be here asking questions or asking of your doctors until you find your answers.  Wishing you the best of health yet to come.

Welcome to the board.

 

It tool me a few months of eating gluten free before I felt better, but what really got me feeling better with more energy was getting my thyroid treated with a T3 and T4 combination drug and addressing my adrenal fatigue. If you have been gluten-free for many months, then perhaps look into other causes like Hashimoto's thyroiditis which is quite common among celiacs.

 

Best wishes

You may want to try a B-Complex supplement - I found it very helpful for energy and mood.  Also, make sure to get enough protein at regular intervals.  For me, I feel best when I get a bit of protein every few hours.  Nuts, cottage cheese, yogurt, protein bar, etc.  And meat protein at meals.
