I had that happen the first two months or so after I went gluten-free. Then, suddenly, it disappeared. My body was pretty heavily damaged when I was diagnosed, so I wonder if it was my body's way of detoxing from all the gluten. Being dizzy is no fun, though; I remember having to lay down after eating most evenings. Hopefully, yours will resolve itself and go away on its own.

I had that problem both before I was diagnosed, and for a while after. I routinely used to get up from the table and go and lay on the couch for a few minutes. It didn't last long, and then I was able to go back and clean up/do dishes.

For me, it only lasted a few months, at most, after I went gluten-free. It never happens anymore :)

I have been gluten free for 5 months...I just remember feeling antsy and shaky.

Although, I like the idea about detoxing though. I saw my naturopathic doctor yesterday, and talked to her about this headache I have had for about a month. She thinks it's because I am still healing, therefore detoxing. I thought that was a good theory.

Maybe this is the way your body is getting rid of the stuff.

Thanks, this just wasn't a side effect I expected after going gluten free. Glad to know it's not unheard of.

Thanks, That would explain why I've thought I was coming down with a cold twice, and yet it never quite turned into much. It's nice to know I'm not crazy. Before I was diagnosed I actually wondered if I was crazy, I had so many symptoms besides tummy aches. This board has been great, I now know most of my problems are common. Now it's nice to know that these problems after going gluten free are also normal.

Thanks everyone for all your help, it has been the silver lining in all of this.
