Hey guys. So I have been gluten free since july, I have had no energy for about two years. Still suffer from the anxiety and depression side. Had suppments/tablets etc. Havent had any good response from them. Sleeping bad. Just super tired all the time. Wonder if I dont get enough carbs in my diet but I believe i do. Only things that pull me out of it is caffeince, coffee etc, but that irritates my stomach. 

 

Any ideas, tips? I have probably left some info out here as I am super tired even piecing this information together. Chronic fatique. I have the weakest form of celiacs I believe, marsh...something or other.  But the mildest, minir ware on the villi. So I am just pretty confused with why I am still so exhausted after 5/6 months

John,

Didn’t you say in  previous posts that you ate a burger at McDonalds just this past week and that weeks/months earlier you have had some gluten exposures?  The learning curve to the diet is steep.  Each glutening  will set you back.  I think you said your follow-up antibodies check was good but was that taken close to the times you ate gluten?  Even if you do not get gut issues, celiac disease can do collateral damage, like not sleeping well and mental issues (e.g. depression and cognitive issues).  I think you were homeless for a while sleeping on friend’s couches.  That can even exhaust a healthy person.

Did you get a bone scan?  

Hang in there.  Soon you will feel better.  Most here take a year or longer.  Really.

Not everything is celiac.... Have you had a sleep study to check for sleep apnea? I have severe apnea, and wear a cpap mask every night. I also get 8-9 hours of sleep every night and more on weekends. I'd be dragging if I didn't. I used to nearly fall asleep at red lights. If you can start getting better sleep, it will seriously help the depression.

johnojohno,

I have a couple links that might help you with your depression and one of them also will help you with your energy/sleep problems/chronic fatigue.

Here is the one about B-Vitamins and depression entitled "supplementation after one year improves mood".

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7477807/

It should be noted that improvement was shown at three months though.

Here is the one on Magnesium and the  one that will help you the quickest and also will help your fatigue and sleep problems entitled "rapid recovery from depression using magnesium".

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16542786/

Both B-vitamins and Magnesium Glycinate work quicker when taken with each meal for 3 months then you can taper back to twice a day for the next 3 months.

***** this is not medical advice only my personal experience with taking Magnesium.

Magnesium really helped my depression.  It will also cause lucid dreams usually in the first couple of weeks after beginning and you will find your sleep is peaceful and you wake up rested.

If you have charlie horses at night (waking you form sleep) magnesium should help this too. . .. I know it did mine.  It is wonderful to not be fatigued these days.  I know how you feel.  Find it as a Magnesium Citrate or Magnesium Glycinate and your body will thank you for it with increased energy.

As chlorophyll is to the plant so is Magnesium to the animal.

For anxiety try some Zinc lozenges (the kind you  buy for a cold) sublingually (under the tongue) your body

self regulates the amount of Zinc you need by producing a sour/metallic tastes in our mouths.

If the 2nd or 3rd lozenge becomes sour then spit it out you have enough zinc in your body.  This should help a lot of the anxiety you are having.

You might also have **** (stars) white specs in your nail bed if are low in Zinc as if you injured your fingernail . . .  a classic sign of a zinc deficiency.

I used to have them on my nails.  Since taking Zinc (as a lozenge) they are now gone and so is my anxiety.

***again this is not medical advice only things that helped my depression and chronic fatigue over the years.

I hope this is helpful.

Thanks guys. Really appreciate it. 

 

I have had the magnesium Glycinate. Any recommendations on this? I have got some but i only used them for a few weeks and the dreams got a little bit extreme. Thanks again guys. i need to look a little more into it i guess. It is a frustrating disease as im sure you guys know.

The Dreams is a sign your dosing it right actually, a bit of meditation/thinking about something you want to dream about helps you control them a bit more and can make them fun, I love lucid ones.

Other thoughts I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy and Liquid Health Neurological Support 1 tbsp each 3 time a day before a meal also in a drink. I found eating tons of healthy fats like pumpkin seeds protein, nut butters etc. Helps with my mood.
