Gluten Withdrawls

Hi everyone,

ive finally gone gluten free (after years of tiredness, lack of energy and horrible brain fog after eating pasta or pizza)

But, 4 days in and my Brain-Fog is constant and 100x worse then when id eat gluten. Before I'd only be fuzzy and have trouble thinking after eating a big gluten meal, Now since cutting out all gluten I have a persistent brain fog that makes even the most basic of tasks difficult. I feel anxious and emotional. Way worse then I ever felt on gluten. Is this normal? Will it improve? Please any advice welcome.

Hi - no I just drew my own parallels from feeling tired and lackluster and fuzzy headed after eating gluten.

Should i rather go and get it officially confirmed from a specialist? I went to my GP today and she was totally clueless about gluten intolerances etc and just ordered a whole bunch of blood tests when I told her my mind feels totally crazy since stopping gluten.

Hi and welcome :)

You've done what many of us did, stopped eating gluten to try and address symptoms. Unfortunately to find out if you've got celiac you actually need to keep eating it.  No-one here can diagnose you, but it does sound as if you have an issue with gluten. Many doctors don't know much about this, mine didn't either! 

The site has an faq here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/

and you may find some of the links in this post useful as well:

Bottom line, it does sound as if gluten is a problem for you. It's possible that the blood tests your doctor ordered may include the celiac panel. You could do with finding that out. You also need to decide whether to keep off gluten or to go back on it until tests are complete.

Best of luck :)

    • I can not speak for mushrooms, but I live in California.  Strawberry fields are everywhere.  All the commercial farmers use plastic.  We even pick them ourselves on several farms.  No straw.   What I would be more concerned about is pesticides.  Strawberries are ranked number 1 for the most contamination.  This is one fruit that you might want to eat as organic.   http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/03/10/strawberries-and-these-other-foods-have-most-pesticides/98966374/ Oh, Jane Anderson's postings are well done, but please note that she suffers from DH, so she is extremely conservative on her approach to a gluten free diet (I would be too if I had DH!).   
    • Let me add that this is a "want-be-journalist" who is trying to make a living.  (Kudos for her!).  You will note that she is selling you a few products.  Is it because she genuinely thinks they are the best products on the earth or she's getting compensated?   Want to improve your dry skin?  Get off the low fat craze and eat some good healthy fats and live in a humid climate (that is my non-medical opinion).  Maybe take fewer showers......😆 Hey, I am not knocking the author, Nicole.  My neighbor, a stay-at-home mom, makes a comfortable living submitting articles for online publishing.  She is not an expert in anything per sa y,  but it allows her to work between toddlers napping while she hangs in her PJ's.   She also gets a lot of free products to try.  
    • You don't need gluten-free makeup unless you are going to get it in your mouth.
    • I say piece of mind is priceless.  Why worry?  My foundation (a mineral) is gluten free as is my lipstick,  sunscreen and hand lotion.   I honestly know that I would have to injest a lot of lipstick 💄 in order to get a gluten reaction (per GlutenFreeWatchDog, Trish Thompson).  But I would rather not worry.  I am willing to PAY extra for it.   If a product line does not offer gluten free items, then  I will not buy it.  They lose my business.   Too bad, those companies are losing market share as there are so many people on the gluten free craze bandwagon (lucky for us who seriously have issues with gluten!) So, I am going to plug Red Apple lipstick and Gabriel Lipsticks.  They are certified gluten free.  Piece of mind.  But if you can read the small print in the drugstore without special magnifying glasses (like I need), then buy the other lipstick.  I used to buy some Maybelline (I think), but now I can not read the label and pride prohibits me from pulling out a large magnifying glass in the store (and dang...I am old and save my phone data for my teenage kid so I will not check the website or call while in the store).  And yes, I pick up the house line without bothering to screen the call and I am still alive!
