I voted G.I. issues, but am not going to disclose them because they're quite embarrassing. :huh:

My other is neuro and psychological. Anxiety, black moods, insomnia are my primary psychological.

Still discovering my reactions to gluten. I've only been free of it for a month. So far: neuro first then GI. FUN. :angry:

I voted for GI even though I also get some neuro - my GI responses are more severe than the neuro, so that's why I voted GI. I get the runs for a day, followed by constipation for about 4 or 5. Bloating, gas, rumbly gut. Not fun.

On the neuro side, I get anxious, depressed, anti-social and grumpy.

I also get sinus migraines, but I'm not sure which category that fits into.

Boo to gluten. <_<

I'm calling my depression and insomnia from gluten neuro. This poll is getting really interesting...

I first get stomach pain that turns into constipation in a couple of days. The rest is anxiety, depression, brain fog, grouchiness, headaches/migraines, forgetfulness, bloating, slight weight gain, insomnia, chronic fatigue, intense cravings for wheat products...........I forgot what else..........I had gluten yesterday! LOL

I voted G.I. issues. If I stick to my gluten-free diet religiously then I'm fine, but if I give in to a craving and have something with gluten then I pretty much just stay home the next day (at least the morning/early afternoon) because of "bathroom issues." :(

It's interesting to see what others are saying. I have been thinking my foggy brain and forgetfulness was because of menopause, but maybe not???

basically bloating, distention, diarrhea vs. constipation (IBS) stomach cramps.

Also extreme fatigue, spinning head, headache, dry eyes, brain fog. I didn't know if that was neuro related so I put GI related.

I voted other. I have Muscle and Joint pain when I eat gluten. I've been poked, prodded, stuck, Biopsyed and still tested Neg. When not eating gluten I can move and I have no pain or muscle tremmers. This has been a painful 25 years and finally @ 48 years old I live vertually pain free unless something unknowen to me is in my eats.

I get a little stomach pain and fatigue. The one thing other than fatigue that I notice is neuro problems. I can't think straight or remember things.

I'm still trying to figure out if its gluten but so far going gluten free is the only thing that seems to work.

I've been gluten-free for a year and I'm lucky that I've only been glutened properly once. However, as well as GI issues, tiredness, brain fog etc, the longest-lasting effect was a big increase in my word muddling. Weird.

I get stomach pains, bloating, nausea, reflux for about the first 12 hours after the glutening. Then it moves into plain old bloating and GI cramping for a day or two. Then it moves into diarrhea and discomfort for another 5-6 days. All in all, I've had a week's worth of symptoms from 2 bites of wheat pasta (accidentally given to me by a waiter). I've also had a couple hours of plain old stomach cramping without anything else after a contaminated pan was used. I don't get neurological symptoms, though.

Hmmm I have equal neuro and G.I

GI: Constipation 1 day, and then diarrhea 2 days. Bloating, acid reflux, grumbling tummy... tummy pain :o

neuro: Anxiety, 'black cloud' depression, paranoia, anxiety, going from mania/hyperactivity on and off with intense fatigue/sloww moods, horrible attention span, visual disturbances, rage

So, this is more neuro for me actually but I put both

I voted both but I don't feel my GI symptoms much, but they do take a lot of damage. The neuro affects are what actually bother me and they are similar to the others listed here. One thing that is very common for me as well is a difficulty swallowing. Like to the point where I have almost actually chocked on food that I can't neither swallow or move out of the back of my throat. It happens right away.

Does anyone get this? Do you think this would fit as a neuro or GI?

I get this. :P The choking I mean. I'd put it as GI not neuro, but next to GI symptoms neuro are the most common.

I don't know why Michael J. Fox hasn't been able to find a cure for Parkinsons, it's right there on his plate.

I turn into a raving jerk! and it's funny (?) how long it took me to realize the connection. (my poor kids)

YEARS.

so, neuro issues: anxiety, rage, hyperactivity then brain fog.

gastro: first sign is a sharp pain across the top of my belly under my ribs....then I know what's coming. then it's the IBS, constipation for a day the D for the next 2-3 days. all the while grumbling belly and bloating and discomfort, insomnia....ugh.

I got glutened 2 weeks ago from a "gluten free" cupcake--from a bakery that I trusted. obvious CC issue, that I alerted them to. I was scared to death to try another cupcake, but I did, this week and was fine, thankfully.
