Round 2 Withdrawl



I thought i was gluten-free for the first 1.5 weeks but discovered I wasn't. My hummus has gluten and I forgot about checking one vitamin. I was having bad headaches too... thought it was withdrawl. I guess it was pms. :huh:

I am almost 100% sure I am gluten-free now, and have been for about 4 days, and I feel just beat! My headache is back and huge and I feel so tired it seems like an effort to open my eyes after blinking. I'm a bit down too so that could be contributing to the fatigue.

At least there are no big stomach aches right now. I get minor ones, like my morning coffee is stirring up a bit of discomfort, but it's really mild. It's a discomfort that I don't notice unless I stop and take stock of my state of being. Also, I get a bit bloated when I eat too many raw veggies but nothing like before.

This headache and fatigue are not something I can forget about. I was even dreaming about a migraine before my headache woke me up this morning. :rolleyes: LOL I'd go to bed for the day but I've got young kids so it's not an option... or at least not one I'm comfortable with.

And I'm grumpy... so grumpy. I have to remind myself to smile with the kids around. Bah hum bug.

I figure I'm about 4-5 days of truely being gluten-free (I'll ignore my gluten-lite days). From what I've read, most people have a tough first two weeks and then it slowly gets better. It sounds like withdrawl can last up to a month, but not usually that long... I should have planned this for winter instead of our incredibly short summer! LOl
