Hi all,

My names Tena I am still fairly new, was diagnosed about 2 1/2 months ago with Celiac. Going back to Dr in a week for some more testing. I was just wondering for those of you that have been gluten-free for quite awhile does the feeling of exhaustion ever go away ? I can sleep 20 hours a day but I am always tired never ever have any energy to do anything. I always have headaches, my neck and back always hurt, stomach pain, dry itchy skin my legs swell for no reason that I am aware of. My heels are sensitive, my eyes are sensitive now.. Sorry I am just having a rough week, I know everyone does I just don't have anyone to talk to...........

Yes, you can regain your energy and the symptoms mentioned will go away if you keep a real strict gluten-free diet and get all the nutrients your body needs. You could easily be deficient in some vitamins and minerals which are causing part of your issues. Celiacs typically have problems enough B12, iron, calcium, magnesium and vit D. I basically had to relearn how to eat, trying to load my diet with nutrients. Big help for me was getting outside and soaking up some sunshine.

Yes, you can look forward to feeling great again...but it does take time. I had the energy of three people before I got sick, so having no energy just about did me in. I am a "dope", as I thought it was taking three years to get rid of all my symptoms, turns out that dairy was a contributing factor as well. Now that I have stopped dairy, plus the gluten of course, I have the energy of three people again...I feel great. Getting rid of the gluten resolved the majority of my symptoms. The dairy caused a lot of the same symptoms for me, including some of the fatigue.

You may just need to heal more. Have you had your vitamin/mineral levels checked? Suppliments work wonders.

When I went gluten-free I kept getting extreme fatigue every once in a while. I was keeping a food log and was able to see that soy was causing the tired feeling. It was like being drugged the day after I consumed it.

Are you keeping a food log? It's possible you could have another food sensitivity entering the mix. It might help you pin point some other issue. It gets tricky, because reactions to a food can show up a day or even two after consumption.

There's a posibilty that you could be getting cc by something too?

I hope you can get this sorted out so you feel better.

Thank you for your input, I have a Dr appt in two weeks and will get my vitamin/mineral levels checked then. I have been writing down questions to ask her that I can never remember when I am there because I have No memory what so ever. I have not kept a food log but I am going to start one to see if I can narrow things down. Also can anyone tell me a good gluten-free lotion ? My skin is so dry it makes me crazy, I have been doing alot of looking on the internet but would rather get the opinion of someone who is going thru same thing. Thank you to all and have a blessed day/night.. : )
