Sudden Spells Of Extreme Sleepiness When Glutened

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

When I'm glutinized, I get extreme fatigue and weakness. Feels like the flu and will last 24 hours. I've had customers tell me I look like crap during these events and no amount of coffee can keep me awake. I'm like a zombie.

I found this post after waking up from an accidental glutening.  I have Celiacs disease and bought a package of Atkins bars that I thought were gluten-free.  I ate a few things at home this morning but I am sure nothing else contained gluten.  I was about to get going with my day when a wave of exhaustion came over me.  I could not keep my eyes open.  Luckily it is Saturday and while I had a ton to do, I did not have to work at a set time or anything like that.  After about a half hour, I forced myself to get up and I looked at the wrapper to confirm - grrrr.  One the website I bought it from, it was listed as gluten-free but on the wrapper in bold letters "CONTAINS WHEAT"  I don't have any other condition and I just had blood tests confirming that everything else is fine and I am not deficient in any vitamin or hypoglycemic, etc.  I am quite sure this is a common Celiac reaction to getting glutened.

I'm tired all the time. I only discovered that I have celiac a few months ago, and I feel like all I do is sleep. And if I'm not asleep, then I wish I was asleep. Decorating for Christmas this year has been exhausting. 

My friend has an autoimmune disease, and we were talking about how tired we always are. But we both noticed that it seems like we're more tired when our body is in recovery mode, and not so much while in symptomatic mode.
