  1. I am obviously out of it. I thought bare minimum that it's been 3 weeks. It's hasn't even been 2. February 4th was when I cut cold turkey. So no wonder not much time has passed by and I still feel like this. The first few days were great, and then I just couldn't focus and even when sitting I felt like I could fall over. Wow....I can't believe it's only been 2 weeks 😑.
  2. Hoping I'm replying correctly lol. Thank you for the input, I might have to look into the salt tablets. I think I have been taking in enough calories...I well exceed 2000 calories easily a day. And since I've been so strict with eating gluten free it's nice to see the initial weight I loss come back. I have been reading all day on this subject and finally discovered "gluten withdrawal". There are many different opinions on the subject but it would make sense. I mean I went from cheating here and there, to eating everything in sight (probably super high amounts of gluten intake), and then quitting cold turkey. And I read cutting out processed foods decreases your salt intake significantly. I just hope eventually the light headedness and the feeling of passing out eventually goes away because it worries me when I drive
  3. I was diagnosed being Celiac almost 3 years ago. After having my daughter 2 years ago I started slipping on the Gluten free diet. Every time I ate gluten I almost passed out. But I also had a hard time gaining weight. It got to the point where I was eating and i just wouldn't gain a pound and sit at the same weight. Well then I thought I would just eat anything in sight, even if it had gluten. I must have built up a tolerance because feeling light headed wasn't as bad but made me sluggish and tired. So after a couple weeks I actually lost weight doing this (Keep in mind I know it was a dumb decision). So anyways I've been almost 4 solid weeks gluten free and for the life of me I can not stop feeling light headed...all day. It's worse when I'm sitting, especially while driving. Which is what led me here because I have lots of questions. I'd like to know what type of doctor I should see? What questions should I be prepared to ask? Has anyone else felt this way after eating gluten free again? I worry especially while driving. The good news is I'm back to my normal weight...even though I'd still like 5-10 more pounds. Any advice would be appreciated. And I just hope I can find this forum again after I hit the done button since this is new to me.
