Fatigue

Recommended Posts

I have a real quick question. Do any of you or did any of you suffer from issues with fatigue? My husband has Celiac and for the past 5 years it has gotten worse. He sleeps alot. He has been glutten free for 1 month and it seems to be worse then before the gluten-free eating. Has anyone else noticed that? Any advise?

Thanks and have a great day!

I think the 1st 3 months are the hardest. You are getting used to what you can and can't have. My experienced was feeling less tired at about 6 months.

It has been 3 months for me after spending at least 3 years killing myself and I still find myself needing an afternoon nap a few times a week. It is getting better but of course when I have an accident with gluten it sets me back for about a week. I have been doing good though only 2 glutens in 3 months so I am getting there lol.

Good luck to you and your husband, just be patient and continue to support him through the beginning months I think you will be happy when you get to the other side!! :)

I've been gluten free since March, so about four months. Until the last couple weeks it felt like I really needed those healing naps on my days off and I was in bed at 9pm. Now I'm working 10 hour days and staying up until about 11pm. I'm still not planning fun things to do on my days off or jumping right into my chores like I need to but I'm awake.

Debilitating Fatigue took control of my life for years before my diagnosis. It also took several months before I even started to feel close to normal. About 3 months ago I started getting bi-weekly B-12 injections which has helped tremendously. I also take 1mg of folicate acid daily and a daily dose of SAM-E.

Also, remember that he is dealing with a life changing diagnosis and he may go through a period of depression which can cause you to shut down and want to sleep. I know I went through a period of mourning which is very normal.

Thank you all for you great advise. I cannot imagine having to give up stuff like people on a gluten-free diet. Kudos to you all!!

It took about 10 months for me to get back to normal. If your husband remains strictly gluten-free, the fatigue will go away.

B-12 also helped me a lot. I take a pill that dissolves under my tongue. I believe the brand is Nature Made and it states gluten free on the bottle.

Fatigue was my only real symptom, I didn't sit up for 6 months after a bout of mono, I was so debilitated. It took about 3 months of gluten free to get back to anywhere near 'normal' and even now, a year after gluten free, I still sleep for ten hours every night and nap sometimes too! it does get better though, a baby step every day
