WideAwake

Anxiety Gone In Less Than 24 Hours?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free (self-diagnosed) for over a month now, but the biggest mental change I have noticed is that I no long have high anxiety. It cleared up overnight. Of course I still worry about some stuff like "normal" people do, but nothing like I did before. I was spending all day worrying about stuff that might not even happen. It was driving me crazy! LOL

Is it unusual for anxiety to go away that fast? My sleepiness/fatique cleared up just as fast.

Some people experience quick and dramatic recovery after going gluten-free, and others take longer.

Welcome to the board.

Thanks for the welcome. Does this sound like I am only slightly gluten intolerant - the fact those two things cleared up so fast?

What I mean by that is not even close to being celiac as far as damage goes? Maybe I caught it early?

Saying that I was diagnosed with IBS when I was a teenager and have always been tired. used to fall asleep at work, which is why i work from home now - easy to catnap LOL

Thats fantastic news!! Congratulations!

I've been Gluten Free for about a month now and the first week my anxiety went absolutely through the roof... must have been some sort of withdrawal I think. Since then howeer I think things have improved (certainly better than that first week anyway!!). I've also started taking Vit B which really helps. I'm hopeful for continued improvement :)

Really pleased for you! Dont question WHY its happened... just be happy that it has :)

Mmmmm, I was so far gone when I stopped eating wheat (didn't even know about gluten then) that my family thought I was dying, and my 'episodes' stopped overnight. Some people just respond really fast, others take months. It's hard to draw the line between gluten intolerant and Celiac, as so many of the tests are so completely unreliable. I personally don't think there is much difference, you're hurting yourself just as much when you're 'gluten intolerant' as when you're 'celiac'. I actually have Celiac, I get the rash (dermatitis herpetiformis, DH) when I'm glutened, you can't get the rash unless you have CELIAC (all caps!). This doesn't have anything to do with you, but I kind of wish people would stop quibbling over the difference. Gluten intolerance isn't like lactose intolerance, you don't just take a pill or 'deal with it', you stop eating gluten. Because you never know whether it's celiac or could be soon. Gluten intolerance isn't 'less' than celiac, so you can't be 'less' careful.

Hi:

I am new to this board and I am not even sure I am replying in the correct place...so forgive me if I am not. I was just diagnosed as having a gluten sensitivity (do not know if I am celiac). I haven't had any gluten since this past Monday night and my doctor did not tell me there could be potential withdrawal symptoms. I have been feeling horrible over the last few days...headaches, irritability, severe fatigue, etc. Has anyone had this? I know everyone is different and we can all experience these things differently.

I was also told that my candida is back and I thought I was done with that...so there is alot of stuff going on...

Thanks,

Teri

Hi Teri, I'm glad you found us!

A lot of people have withdrawal symptoms, but then, a lot of people don't...

Try out the search functions on the board and look for 'withdrawal' and 'candida' too find threads about these subjects.

That is great news for you congrats,

Its funny my Anxiety started when I was going through the diagnoses, I think it was all due to the worry or finding out if I had Coeliac Disease and also the related and associated illnesses that are linked with Celiac, and then it just kept snowballing, I am still suffering bad anxiety and it been 6 months gluten free. My poor husband.

It really does all affect everyone so different. I agree dont ask why just be so thankful you are feeling better. Sounds like the gluten-free diet is working well for you.

    I suppose the juices you described would be fine, but remember,  you are trying to heal from inflammation.  Sugar, even in the form of juices, is inflammatory (start researching that topic).  I personally only consume coffee, water and black tea.  Boring?  Yes.  It is safe for not only my gluten-free diet, but in managing my diabetes (TD2).   The diet does allow for Gatorade.  There are other options for obtaining electrolytes and most people do not exercise enough to ever warrant it.  But some
    Kareng, I think you are fundamentally incorrect in stating that "the point of the (Fasano) diet is not to give someone lots of choices".  The point of the diet is to allow healing by eliminating all potential sources of gluten, not to unnecessarily limit one's food options for no good reason!  The fact that the diet IS rather limiting in food options is a secondary aspect of the diet, not it's primary goal. I do indeed want to follow both the letter and the spirit of the diet, in order to a
The point of the diet is not to give someone lots of choices.  The point is to severely limit the foods for a short period of time to be absolutely certain no gluten can sneak in.   So the fact that some herbal teas are made with barley might be why they don't want to even chance that.   I would guess that the OJ you described would probably be fine.  The fact is, I have seen people who really are serious about the Gluten Elimination Diet and others that follow parts of it.  I suppose
