How Long Is It Before You Feel The Emotional Effects Of Being Glutenened?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was curious - how long does it take all of you to feel the emotional effects of being glutened? I got glutened this morning by a bowl of Kix which I believe must have had cross contamination. It's 3 pm now, and I've been feeling teary and depressed already. Whenever I'm accidentally glutened it usually takes a few hours for me to feel awful. I know there's been alot of talk about Kix and if it is gluten free or not. I won't be trying Kix again until if and when they officially label it as gluten free! This is horrible. Once I feel like this it takes at least a week for me to feel better again!

I know exactly what you are talking about. Within a few hours of being glutened I get teary and emotionally erratic. It settles down a bit after a few days, but I still feel some effect for several weeks. It took me a while to realise this, so now I know to go easy on myself for a while after.

I get like that too just a few hours after being glutened. It took me a few times to realize that was the connection. Not only do I get the depression and sadness part of it, but I overreact, I become very irrational, and very irritable. I'm very lucky my boyfriend understands and loves me so much because there have been a couple times where I've accidently been glutened and the poor guy has to deal with my irritability and anger for a week. It takes me about a week to get everything back out of my system. The scary thing for me the first few times was that I could not control my feelings AT ALL!

Thank you for all of your replies. Yes, I know exactly what you mean. I also become very irritable as well as teary and anxious. My husband can tell when I've been glutened before I even tell him when I suspect I have been accidentally glutened. I'm just starting to feel less teary as of today since my last post, but I'm still feeling a bit off. Hopefully I'll feel back to normal in a few more days. :)

Wow this is interesting, its making me wonder if i have been accidentally gluten and not noticed, I have had days recently when I have felt like this and my anxiety just got worse for a week or so with no real reasoning behind it. I am usually quite careful but this has given me something to think about.

I've suspected that my depression results from ingesting gluten. Ate some blue cheese the other day and have been on a downward spiral ever since. I've already been under a lot of stress, but I think the gluten has exacerbated my emotions. I've been taking my Zoloft again just to take the edge off them; I feel so raw and catatonic. The thing I really hate about accidentally ingesting gluten is that I feel like I have to solve certain problems in my life, when it is the gluten that is blowing everything out of proportion. So my life is basically on hold until I bounce back into reality. Sheesh.
