Mood Swings After Contamination?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't typically HAVE mood swings more than female issues. Like, ever. The other day, mom had to go to the WIC office after she got me from work. I planned fast food for lunch and we stoppe at taco bell (warning: don't get the Nachos Belle Grande even without meat. They aren't safe andante all locations. I can't even imagine what the difference is!).

So that was last week. I had some pain yesterday (my issues are joint issues) and this is my worst contamination issue since nov 2010.

The real issue comes: I've had some major mood swings. I can go from perfectly content to nearly crying in 10 seconds flat for seemingly nothing. And I don't normally cry ever muchless on a dime.

So are mood swings part of a major contamination issue?

I would say they definitely are. I usually don't get very emotional though, I just get very cranky and pissed off.

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the diet or just the fact that I'm actually growing up, but I have noticed in general I have become a much more empathetic and emotional person. I literally never used to cry and I've lost it a couple times these past few years. The whole GI tract is strongly linked to the brain, in ways we do not yet understand.

Yes, I also have a recurrence of joint pain, anxiety, neurological issues, cognitive impairment, insomnia and a major swing in moods when I am CCed. I hate that part the most.

I call it the return of the seven dwarves: weepy, cranky, racy, spacey, dopey, angry and achy. <_<:lol:

Not my personality at all to be in such a funky mood and this is how I know I have been "hit". :rolleyes:

Drink a lot of water and ride it out.

Tell yourself you know what it is and that you're going to get past it in time.

Hope you feel better soon!

Eating soy makes me self-harmingly depressed within hours. I had crazy mood swings constantly before going gluten-free. If the antibodies end up in your brain, well. so it goes.

don't eat at taco bell, my friend.

Oh yes!!! You could touch me wrong and I'd probably be on your case about it after being cc'd or glutened. :unsure: All of the not so great emotions, irritability, sadness, impatience, frustration ALL seem to attack at once and leave me essentially out of commission for about a week. It's almost like being a werewolf on the night of a full moon. :ph34r:

Definitely. There is a reason the Vikings ate the moldy rye bread before their rampages dear. It really is not a nice place to be.

Interestingly I am discovering amines from aged food affects me similarly.

I guess its a no brainer--take your own food! No Taco Bell!! Ding Ding!!

That sounds to me like you might have an underactive thyroid. When is the last time you had a thyroid panel done? If it has been more than 6 months, I recommend asking your doctor to run one. It's a very simple blood test. If you have hypothyroidism, a small pill once a day will make you feel A LOT better! Good luck!

This is totally me too, though I get depression (really really bad) instead of anxiety (at least hardly ever). Though there are some times I get anxiety. I find it much worse than the GI symptoms I get.

Me, too. :rolleyes: The GI stuff passes quickly (pun intended) :)

but the ucky "gluten head" (as I call it) takes a while to subside and I do not like that part at all. UGH! :unsure:
