I have to drink at least a pot of coffee a day just to make it; I do a few things, then want to crawl back into bed. So little energy, I can barely hold onto a simple retail job. Anyone else feel this way? I saw a recent photo of myself and I look so fat and bloated, I could barely stand to look at myself. No wonder why I am still single! Fat and tired all the time....yeah, what a catch!

Please tell me this gets better. Started going gluten free this week......can't wait to see a difference. Sometimes I think I hear death knocking on the door. This is not living. Not living well,anyway.

Okay, think of it this way. Pretend you are in hospital, have just had surgery (they excised the gluten :D ) and you are in the recovery room. Are you going to feel and look great? No way, lady!! You have got a lot of recovering to do. So undergo your convalescence and then see how you feel and look :)

Stick to the gluten-free diet (no cheating at all) and you should start feeling better very soon. I lost weight very quickly once my villi began to heal, and I started absorbing some nutrients again. :D

Have you tried cutting the caffeine out? That seems to really mess with my energy levels. When I first gave up caffeine I had a banging headache for days, it wasn't pleasant, but I did feel better without it in the long run.

Now I can tolerate a little but feel it if I had to much. I get jumpy then my energy levels crash later.

I did go decaf for a month, and yes, had the headaches,too. Didn't feel any better without caffeine,to be honest. I just love a good cup of coffee,whether it's regular or decaf. In spite of all the coffee I drink, I still sleep a lot.

Stick to that gluten free diet, you will start to feel better soon. When I started, the first week didn't seem to do much for me, but by the end of the second week I felt a huge difference.

When i went gluten free i was really anaemic as well. So my doctor told me that was why i felt completely tired out. Id have two naps a day usually a few hours and still feel exhausted. Its like a detox on your system, and all the bad stuffs getting cleaned out, so you wont feel great initially but you will get better! Just give your body the rest it needs!

Also i noticed cutting out caffeine also helped, i actually felt more tired whenever i had tea!

Before I went gluten free I was sleeping so much and so exhausted that I really thought I was dying. I had other symptoms such as joint pain, migraines, bloating, gas, severe brain fog and abdominal pain. I had no idea they were all connected and was all because of FOOD!!! I have two small children and felt like the worst mother and wife but knew I was truly doing the best I could.

After being diagnosed and starting the gluten free diet I started feeling better within a couple of weeks. Hang in there it will get better and don't be so hard on yourself. There is a learning curve but it gets easier.
