My husband eats gluten but he noticed a change in my attitude and mood the first couple of months that I started eating gluten free. I read a lot on here about anxiety, depression and moods (I read them to him as well).

I was really shocked how I was and did not know why, but it has gotten A LOT better for me. I would go through days where the smallest thing annoyed me and I was in a pissy mood to days where I was really quiet (I am normally a very talkative positive person). Over time things have gotten a lot better.

In the beginning you can get discouraged b/c you don't know why you are moody but it does get better. Same thing with the sick feeling....I felt really sick while my body was healing that also got better over the first couple of months as well (also feeling sluggish/tired).

GOOD LUCK :)

When I quit gluten and dairy, I felt dizzy for over a week. My boys tend to get really mean and grumpy when they are in pain or feeling sick (they dont seem to realize they are in pain, they just get mean), so theres a good chance this is a withdrawal. And yes, other folks on this site have said it made them cranky


Cara - 42, mom to dd 15, ds 12, ds 4

Off gluten and dairy (and tapioca ;-( ) since 11/07

A.L.C.A.T. test showed over 50 sensitive foods

Regular allergy testing reacted to every inhalant and all but 6 foods.

Slowly adding in foods, started w 19 and now have 25

This is great info! My hubby started gluten-free last Friday and he has been...well...not at his best. When our son went gluten-free his mood greatly improved. I guess I was expecting a repeat of that. I was thinking it was just anxiety and being overwhelmed, but maybe it is withdrawl. His first blood test came back neg. (we're waiting on second test), but his health looks like a textbook Celiac case (to this Celiac-newbie), so he's going to try gluten-free. He's working toward one month and then re-evaluate. I'm hopeful he'll see at least some improvement by then to keep him motivated. I'll share with him tonight about this thread.

Once again, I'm thankful for this site!!

I went on the Candida diet when I was first diagnosed with Fibromyalgia hoping it was actually a full body yeast infection. (It wasn't) On this diet you can't eat anything that feeds yeast. Basically I was eating meat and veggies, no fruits with some spices. I went through absolutely terrible withdrawals. I couldn't figure out how this was suppose to make me feel better. It was terrible but it went away in about a week. I have been thinking about going gluten-free with my kids as I did feel better and there have been studies about it helping FM patients, however I am a little hesitant just because of the whole withdrawal thing. Good luck and I hope he he feels better soon.

Hi there. I am a newbie to the gluten free diet, and unfortunatly self-diagnosed for now as I could just not live with the pain while waiting for the specialist.

Anyway, I was wondering if it is normal to have dizzy spells, sometimes feel naseated, and feel very lethargic and weak with no energy when first coming off gluten / wheat?

Thanks :-)

Is it any better now? this post is almost a month old! I remember my daughter back then beeing 12 month old getting very clingy for aobut a month or so! since I was still breastfeeeding her until she was 14 month old, I had to cut oput gluten too and let me tell you, you do go through some type of withdrawal and it does not feel good. You feel constantly like you are starving, your mood fluctuates and so on. I feel for anybody who goes through it and feels it so bad, it's tough! It wikllg et better thoguh!
