Do You Feel More Weepy When Glutened?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got into some gluten, I'm pretty sure I know how. I've been so sick all afternoon and in so much pain! I've had random crying spells that are not like me. Do any of you feel more weepy when glutened? I don't know how I endured this much pain before going gluten-free. Who would think food has so much control of our bodies? I now know food changes everything we are. How we feel, think and function.

Yes! One day after having a bite of bread on accident I was weepy and depressed for the rest of the day and the next. (although some of that might have been pure anxiety since I knew what happened).

I also get really weepy and depressed when I have soy so to me gluten and soy seem related.

yes of course (you can see my whimpering post from earlier today...). But I attribute it to the psychological aspects of the disease - frustration, lack of control, etc...

Yes, I lose control of my emotions. I just can't cope with things that would normally be only mildly irritating. If I have consumed gluten then I wake up crying in the morning, I cry on the bus, I cry in the bathroom at work, I cry if someone pushes in front of me in a line, if a student doesn't pay attention..... Friends have found me wandering the streets weeping and taken me home. Even though I know exactly why its happening, I still can't control it. But the people close to me are used to it, and they and I know not to take me seriously when I'm like that, it wears off in a day or two!

Me too. I cry when someone speaks to me even in love and concern. I find everything profoundly sad when I am glutened.

Yes - I get very emotional and generally feel depressed/weepy. Also get a very short fuse and am irritated by EVERYTHING. Just ask my fiance - he can always tell when I ate something because of my emotional response.

DITTO on the weeping, rage, irritability, feeling "overwhelmed", frightened and anxious, agitated ...it's pretty weird... and before I KNEW what was causing it, I was pretty worried I was going mad :unsure: --as these things are NOT my usual personality. I found even the neighbor's dog barking made me pissed off!! I kept trying to figure out what the hell was going on!!I even went to a shrink!!!--and insisted I wasn't like this--something was making me feel this way. And you know what SHE said? Hey, do you have any food intolerances???? :blink: THAT got me thinking...and led me --a year and a half later, baffled doctors, erroneous testing and misdiagnoses--towards a REAL diagnosis.

They are doing a lot of research on the affect of gluten toxicity on brains.

WE could probably write the book on it :blink:

I sure notice a dramatic change --I call it "the curtain dropping"--- when I have been glutened--and it feels gloomy and awful.

That is a good outlet!! :) --It is good your muscle mass was not affected by the disease. I LIVE for the day I can work out again and swim. I am in so much pain right now and filled with knotty trigger points and restricted movement....I am hoping more months on the diet will help out my massive lost muscle mass and tone. (I dropped 90 lbs., rapidly with this thing) The PT thinks so and so do I!!

Keep at it, Mama!! ;)

Thanks everyone! I'm without power right now due to a really bad storm..day two. I'm struggling on eating. I lost all my food in my fridge, but managed to grill some meat last night. I'm eating fruit, gluten-free ceral bars(don't usually eat these) and some Jello. I cannot eat nuts and I'm trying to stay whole foods. I've got a lot to do after work today and have since thought about that emergency kit someone posted about! I'm going to keep more on hand.

Oh no! hope you get your power back soon and that things calm down. Emergency kit is a great idea!

I just got glutened (just felt the effects, anyway), and my god, I know what you mean. I was in the lounge of my residence hall reading something that I didn't like, and I noticed it irritated me more and more as time went by. Then I realized the pain in my sides was getting worse, and I marched back to my room, worried and frustrated. That soon became anger, and I threw my chair back down on the ground, smashed by fists against my desk. That soon turned to hopeless weeping, back to anger, back to weeping. Then it went into a lesser version of the pain, and I just stared blankly at my wall, wondering where this possibly could have come from. Then I was in the "distract myself with the internet" phase, and now I guess I'm in the "post it online" phase.

Short version: Yes, it makes me weepy and incredibly emotional (on the negative side).

Weepy, short tempered, self destructive and suicidal.

Last week got very 'dark' around here and I didn't know why.....it got to the point where I thought that I had finally had some sort of mental break that wasn't related to gluten. After 3 days of horrible horrible thoughts about running away and hurting myself, I told my husband I was going to the county mental health service and look into some sort of treatment/hospitalization...only then did he confess that he had prepared eggs for me with the community tub of margarine 3 or 4 days earlier. He should have known better, he had to have seen all of the bread crumbs in there when he was scooping it out...either he truly wasn't thinking or he was 'testing' me..he normally wouldn't made the effort to make food for anybody but himself...so I am leaning toward 'testing'.

I am starting to come out of it...knowing what is causing it makes it easier to deal with but every time it happens it gets worse than the time before..it's time to take the house gluten free...my husband refuses to even consider it. It's probably the gluten talking, but it might be time to consider divorce. I hope that I live in a no fault state...I'd hate to tell a judge that I am divorcing my husband over bread crumbs.

Pancake Sunday hating stacey,

I support your thought process. The fact that he refuses to consider (or even try to meet you in the middle) is something that you deem important for your health is a deal breaker. Who knows how much farther that lack of support for you goes. This whole process is tough as it is - the last thing you need is additional battles with people who are closest to you. You'd be ok telling a judge that you are divorcing your husband if he is poisoning you, right?

I would wait to make sure it was a pattern first, and not an isolated incident. Also, don't make any decisions regarding the future of such important relationships while still under the influence of gluten! It is like a drug.

But once you're gluten "sober" if this is a constant pattern and not a mistake/something he regrets and never will do again...
