Night Terrors/fear/paraoid

Anyone else feel paranoid, have nightmares or night terrors when glutened? I was trying to do a three-day-challenge to show the doc and get positive blood work (but I have already asked about that and I don't know if the blood work will even show my HARD work!) but all of the crappy symptoms are back, including nightmares, waking dreams, and waking up feeling like something was in the room?!?! The dreams are so vivid, and scary, that I call my hubby (who is overseas) and make him talk to me for a little while. Anyone else have dreams/fears like this when glutened?????

These are typical anxiety symptoms and hypnotists deal with them all the time. Their origin is in scary things from the past, like scary movies or news scenes. Gluten may make you more susceptible. At any rate, they are easily dealt with and a trip to a hypnotherapist or a call to one may be in order.

Thank you guys so much for sharing your thoughts about the vivid nightmares, anxieties, paranoia and things that happen when we get glutened. Some days I feel like I am the only one out there that suffers from these problems.

When I get glutened I get into this deep paranoia/anxious state where nothing goes right, feels right. I am paranoid about yesterday, today and whatever may happen tomorrow. I drive my husband crazy with these feelings, he just doesn't understand how I can be so critical of myself and literally hate everything around me. My job suffers, my relationships suffer. I get absolutely nothing done, I'm afraid to be by myself, but at the same time don't want to go anywhere either.

I was glutened at some point this past week, and I am finally coming out of it today. It takes a good three to four days for me to feel relief.

I'm with you BamBam. I got glutened this week (by Sensodyne toothpaste :angry::angry::angry: ) and I took a nap Monday afternoon. I slept very restlessly but when I woke up and the house was dead quiet I was convinced something horrible had happened. It took me a few to "wake up" and settle down. Vivid dreams, etc can be brutal. Mine have decreased so much since i went gluten-free. Totally lost the night terrors and fear of the dark. It was bad. I think I said this before but I used to wake up and if it was really dark I would get claustrophobic and start hyperventilating and tear around the room looking for a light switch.

    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.  
    How is one tested for Celiac Disease? I have had several endoscopes and the lower part too and none of the doctors have said anything about it. I have BIG issues with bloating, severe pain in my upper chest (under the chest bone), at times...
