Yes, I do get anxious after eating gluten. Not every time, but often. Sometimes comes after D, sometimes before, rarely without any D at all. It's like my brain goes ADHD and everything makes me a bit nervous or cranky. I make bad decisions - or no decisions at all. Luckily the anxiety doesn't usually last more than 36 hrs or so. And 8 or 12 hrs in I usually realize what's going on and can anticipate a bit (like, focus on very discrete tasks).

I get really bad anxiety after a glutening. I get shaky and what my fiance calls "crazy-eyed".

Anxiety was actually the symptom my doctor saw that caused her to test for celiac, oddly enough.

I accidentally got glutened on Sunday at breakfast (restaurant) and spent the entire day reading in bed. I was exhausted, irritable/cranky, anxious, and didn't want to be around humans (lol). My fatigue and anxiety usually last for 4 days, getting a little better each day (I'm at about 80% today).

Yes, anxiety has been described as being related to celiac disease and I've read a lot about people experiencing anxiety after being glutened. Everyone seems to get better at a different rate depending on their level of sensitivity and I hope you feel better quickly :)

Thanks everyone...that puts my mind at ease. It's nice to know that I'm not alone. I'm feeling better...I would say about 75% better...and my hope is that I wake up tomorrow and the "crazies" are gone!

I was an anxious mess during my gluten challenge. Not sure if it was the wacky symptoms that cropped up or anxiety in itself. I use passionflower.

Our gut hosts the same neurotransmitters our brain does. GABA is involved in anxiety and is also in your gut.

Its really funny to read this right now because I just now joined the forum and its because I'm feeling so anxious at the moment.

There was a hurricane warning this afternoon so the family had to camp out at a nearby Buffet.

Big. Mistake.

I barely ate anything at all-actually got chastised for so much wasted food- and even then somehow some way I can't fathom, between ribs, rice, corn, spaghetti sauce, and ice cream I ate gluten. 

The ammount of self-directed-anger I feel when this happens is reflective of how messed up my mind gets. Its incredible how skewed my perspective becomes after a glutening. Everything is darkness, problems are blown way out of proportion, my anxiety is unbelievable, and I get heart palpitations allong with tremors. The worst is feeling my brain-im being serious here-swell. Slowly but surely right after the allergic dry couph goes away the vice like grip of a headache sets in and doesnt go away for about 3 days. I now know its inflamation. 

But anyways no its totally normal.
