Hey everyone!!!

I'd really appreciate your support on this one, because I'm confused. Big time.

Sometimes, I get major mood swings...I know there's a thread on it somewhere, but I don't remember where it is or if anyone posted a message similar to this one.

It seems as if celiac disease has "thinned my skin" (opposed to the saying, "having thick skin.") I have been worrying about or forgetting things a lot lately. I keep having fears that everyone thinks I'm a different person, when I know that's not the case. I keep missing cross country practices because I keep forgetting the times for practice. I swear someone told me when had to run at 7:00--why were my teammates running at 4:00, then?

Oh, Lord. Am I getting cross contamination?

I love you all. It's comforting to know I'm not alone.

Does caffeine increase stress/anxiety in Celiacs? I had coffee shortly before dinner, and after that my heart began pounding, thus starting my anxiety. Am I imagining things? :(

I don't think the caffeine helps with stress........okay, that's putting it mildly.....caffeine is bad for stress or anxiety......you might want to stay away from that a bit....or at least limit it............about the other stuff.......I don't know what's with forgetting or imagining things. Someone here...I think it was Jessica (angel_jd1) made a thread awhile ago about being forgetful.....I didn't really read it, so I don't know if it had....sort of imagining things in it, but if you found that one, it might help with forgetfulness..................

celiac3270,

I guess I'll try to limit my caffeine intake...but there have been incidents (two) without caffeine that I've been extremely worried about. Today, the episode was identical to the ones I had before my diagnosis...

I don't know.

Thanks for replying,

Jill,

I'm almost 29 (I know it's hard to tell from my pic :lol: ) and if I don't get enough sleep, I cry like a baby... I have these super-sensitive moments that just can't be explained (it's not hormonal either). Usually Eric (my fiance) sends me to bed to get some rest when that happens. If I can say anything, it's directly related to the amount of sleep I get, because I seem to need a ton. I will set my alarm clock and a few seconds later have to check to make sure I did it right.. Hahahahaha! What I'm saying is you're not alone... I forget appointment times too. I really wish I could offer you advice, but if anything it's just best to know what your limits are and say "no" when you can't do what other's want from you. I think it's just that our bodies need a little more grace at times... they work pretty hard.

I had to fight with my doctor and insurance company to get me an appointment with a dietian. I had to wait 2 weeks for the appointment. That day I forgot all about it. I called crying, I could not believe I missed the one appointment I though I might finally get some help. She was nice and forgiving and rescheduled it for me.

oh, and I have never been able to tolerate too much caffeine. Makes me VERY jittery and nervous. I wonder if our bodies are still in a state of shock or on the defensive. Working hard to heal takes alot of energy, just like when you get the flu and your body is working so hard to fight the infection.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
