Hi and welcome :)

I had a similar experience--I suffered with depression and anxiety before being dianosed. After going gluten-free, I noticed a change almost immediately (I felt calmer, began to sleep better and wasn't depressed as often) but it didn't last. I would say it took me about 18 months to really see a difference in my anxiety on a daily basis. Anxiety has always been a much bigger issue for me than depression.

After 3 years, I still get anxiety when accidently glutened, it's one of the first things I notice when this has happened.

I'd give it more time, the anxiety and depression tend to take longer to ease up. A gluten-free sublingual vitamin B12 might be a good idea--I used it for a while after going on the diet.

Hi there...

I had terrible depression when I first went gluten free. It really did clear up for me though after a couple months. It does come back if I eat gluten though - so I'm very very careful now.

All of the icky side effects of being gluten-free really do go away when your body gets used to it.

Good luck!

you have not been gluten-free that long & you might still be getting some gluten...

a few ideas - did you replace all your gluten food items with a gluten free substitute? If you did that is really not a good idea. You might want to look at your diet to see how much nutrition you are getting each day.

get your vitamin & mineral levels checked & take a B12 regardless & probably you will also need D

you could also just be grieving for the loss of your favoite foods, do not worry your taste will change.... really :)

I was extremely depressed the first 2-3 months after going gluten-free. I would cry all the time. It was almost like I was in mourning for the way my life used to be. I, too, started taking a sublingual Vit B-12 about 6 weeks ago and noticed a difference within a week.....felt more like my old self. You will feel better. Hang in there!

flutterby, you're a better person than I am... I would have clocked a co-worker the second time they said that. It's not a bleepin' diet, it's a food plan that's saving my bleepin' life.

(and, yes, I stole 'food plan' from Babylon 5, 'cause, yes, I'm a nerd.)

Hahahahaha! Thanks for making me laugh. I JUST about gave into that temptation today when my officemate came in and said:

"OH YUMMY ... Yummy Yummy Yummy. Oh How Yummy. My friend just gave me this FIG CAKE. Yum yum. I had one of this before and it was soooooooooooooooooo good look they gave me another one .... Oh how rich and goood..."

........ And then I walked out of the room. :lol:

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
