I am having my first PMS since going gluten-free and my headaches are really bad. I have had MUCH LESS stomach and abdominal pain, but the headaches are really bad. Anyone else have different PMS after going gluten-free? Any ideas or tips? Maybe since I used to have headaches all the time and now I don't, these seem so bad, but I am just wondering if I am the only one who had different PMS......

I can't say mine is worse but before I went totally gluten-free I noticed I started getting what I refer to as Post-menstrual Syndrome, in addition to the common Pre-menstrual syndrome. This has continued since going totally gluten-free earlier this year. Basically it consists of bad GI symptoms similar to a glutening, and lasts for a few days at least. I've tried changing my diet around and during my period to very safe foods, but it doesn't seem to matter. It's very frustrating, because overall I feel much better on the gluten-free diet but every month like clockwork I have this setback. I'm experiencing this wonderful condition right now, as a matter of a fact. :(

I guess I'm totally the opposite. I never expereinced pms until I became symptomatic. Then for that whole 3 years I had it BAD. I dreaded it every month. Since the day I went off gluten I havent had pms again...knock on wood.

Thanks for the posts....I asked that question at the beginning of my "week" and now I am at the end and things are odd, but much better than they were before going gluten-free. I have read on other posts and in books that the absorbtion rate changes so much when you are healing, so I think that my pill might need to be changed. I made an appointment with the GYN for thursday, so I will ask her about the patch or the ring..... I am so overwhelmed with all of the changes!!!!!!!
