For Those Who React Emotionally To Gluten,

Recommended Posts

I have been angry, impatient, and bloated for 3 days now. Just wondering how long this should be lasting. Thanks!

How long depends on the individual....

I get GI stuff (D, cramping, nausea) for a day or two--then the emotional and neuro issues kick into high gear. This can last, for me, for 2-3 weeks.

Thanks for replying. I don't think I get gluten all too often anymore and so this has really surprised me. Back before I was gluten free I don't remember being so irritable, mainly zoned out. I am a bear to be around right now and I feel so bad about it, especially for my kids. I am hoping this doesn't go on for much longer.

I hope it passes quickly for you, too :)

Frequently, what happens is that the longer we're gluten-free, the more pronounced our reactions are.

I also have the mood reaction and it kills me. I notice it as I am being a bear to everyone around me. In general, if I start having a reaction that I can feel - like skin, tummy, dizzy, nausea I take a benedryl and try to lay down. I know this is not an allergic reaction in the true sense, but for me it helps. I also take some Motrin, helps with the inflammation and irritableness. Then I try to get plenty of sleep and remain as calm and closed mouth as I can. And that is hard some days. for me the moods are pretty bad for a week and then it starts to calm down. The bowels are bad for 2-3 days. It's a real incentive to try to never make a mistake. Usually my mistakes are from eating out, but I love it!
