  1. Thanks for the replies... Two weeks I think I can handle... Tonight I felt like I was withdrawing from heroine or something (not that I'd know first hand but I've seen it in the movies!) - body aches, chills, feeling faint, stomach cramps. Man - if this is the gluten it makes me never want it again. Just woke up, feeling a little better but wondering what is in store tomorrow. Glad to know it hopefully won't last months - eek.
  2. Hey everyone, I'm new here and had a question about gluten withdrawals. I have self-diagnosed with a possible gluten-sensitivity or even celiac, who knows. I'm going to the dr. next week to see about a test, but I am doing a trail elimination as of Monday (today is day 4). I suspect gluten because I have bloating after meals (though painless), chronic constipation, asthma, restless leg syndrome, insomnia issues, anxiety and irritability, and some mild depressive symptoms, chronic stuffy nose/sinus issues, fatigue/difficulty motivating, and difficulty focusing/brain fog. So all of these things are on the list of possible symptoms and it would be amazing if this was my answer. However after 4 days of cutting out gluten I am feeling intensely irritable and sad, body aches, bloating and stomach discomfort, headaches, and starting today suddenly this feeling like everything without gluten is just not worth eating! (even the stuff that I normally like doesn't sound good right now). Just feeling all around crappy. Just wanted a little feedback - wondering how many of you experienced withdrawal symptoms when you cut gluten - what they were - and how LONG it lasted? I can handle this for a few days but I read a post somewhere else that someone was super depressed for three months after cutting gluten.... ugh, I don't want that! Thanks in advance for any feedback!
