Want To Sleep 24-7

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I really am Celiac or not (unhelpful GI says no) but I want to sleep all the freaking time. Can barely work or stand on my feet, bloated like a stuffed pig and weigh 240 pounds,have mouth ulcers,depression and acid reflux that was so bad, I was misdiagnosed with asthma and put on steroids that I never needed. I sleep 10 hours a night and wish I could sleep around the clock....I hate being awake. Oh yeah, I've been gluten free a week and a half and cheated once because I came face-to-face with a Wawa pretzel that I coudn't pass up.

Yes, your symptoms are all the miserable symptoms of Gluten Intolerance, which is just as serious as Celiac in terms of how it destroys your life. Get off the gluten as diligently as you can. It is very important. I ballooned up to 200 lbs and cried or slept all the time. Just miserable and could sleep all evening and all night and barely functioned the next day. You might feel rotten for a while before you start to feel better but you really could have all that weight from inflammation. I don't know why but it happens to some people. I weigh 115 now and am back to a normal size and feeling pretty good for all the hell my body has been through. Give is 6 months and see how you feel. I am only on month 7 of the rest of my life...but it feels great and I no longer sleep all the time. When I do need a nap, it is refreshing, not like the gluten fatigue you are describing which is very real. Wishing you fast healing.

Hang in there Cruise! I had many of the same symptoms you have, same answer from the GI, and the gluten-free diet has helped GREATLY! Energy level through the roof, acid reflux has gone down quite a bit...the overall improvement blew my mind! Give it another week or two, especially since you were just glutened, and hopefully you will start to feel better! I'm usually a little bit off for a few days, sometimes a week or more after I've been glutened. If you're not feeling better in a few weeks on the gluten-free diet, you may want to get your thyroid checked. That's a simple blood test, and may explain the tiredness. But I think you may be like me - intolerant, but no positive diagnosis for celiac.

P.S. - I know what you mean about Wawa pretzels! I used to love those. Now, I just stick to their coffee.

I weighed 200 or more since I was 14. No diet ever helped until I went on a whole foods diet 2 years ago. I have since lost close to 50 lbs. I can't eat any of the gluten free foods because I react to them..

I eat plain meats, fish, chicken, brown rice, sweet potatos, carrots, corn, asparagus, lettuce, peas, peanut butter, nuts, tostito chips, grapes, apples, etc.

It's gonna take awhile for you to heal.

I went from sleeping 3 to 4 hors a night and falling asleep when ever I got still to sleeping 7 to 8 hrs a night and not needing to sleep during the day. My fatigue has eased up a lot but not perfect.

Hang in there and try to be patient. After all it took several years to get this way, so it's gonna take awhile to heal.

I had all of your symptoms plus a whole lot more. They have, I would say resolved about 70%. I've had this since I was 7, so I figure I have another 3 to 4 years to go before I heal 100%.

I wish you well, good luck.

I have had same problems and never realised why I was tired all day and slept in the afternoon or even evening after coming back from work. My kids would also joke on me that either I work or sleep. I have very unusual presentation of Celiac, I had tiredness and deranged liver functions with Diarrhea which was not that profound. Once I was off gluten after diagnosis, I realised I didnt to sleep and was never tired during the day.

Recently again had tiredness and got the tests done, my Anti-TTG level was high, probably some exposure. So please be patient, it is part of the disease, it shall improve once you leave Gluten products.

    • Hi guys. It's me Jenny 😊I feel like I post every other day with problems or questions. Well I'm here again. I have this problem with my left leg (in particular) at night going numb it wakes me up in the middle of me sleeping and is difficult to fall back to sleep. It's not my bed mattress, it's not the location on how I sleep. I don't know what it is. It only happens at night. The neurologist said I was sleeping on my spine wrong because I sometimes end up on my back wrong! Happens just as much on my side. Don't know if this is celiacs related damage or something else my quality of sleep sucks! Any one experience this? Also I have a mysterious pain that started in my neck atleast 2 years ago got use to it but over the summer I noticed there was pain (unbearable) on the shoulder generating down to the wrist on one side. Any one know what this could be. My doctor diagnosed arthrits but I'm only 30
    • I have been gluten free for about 7 months. I had a check with my gastroenterologist at 4 months post endoscopy, and asked him to check my thyroid, iron, vit D and Vitamin B12 levels. They told me all were fine (which I found surprising, but I take vitamins). Shortly after that, my hair started to fall out like crazy. At first I thought it might be due to an accidental glutening in mid Sept, but it is still falling out. I finally did a hair count after yesterdays shower - 919 strands!  Thank goodness I (had) thick hair, but its getting noticeable. Coincidentally, yesterday I noticed bruising on my arms & don't remember hitting anything, but I remember getting bumped by someone. Could my iron change that fast? I'm looking for answers. Yes I use gluten free shampoo & product, but I dont know if my hairdressers shampoo is gluten-free. I only go there once a month though. Any ideas would be much appreciated! 
    • Just wanted to revive this thread with an update. My daughter's appetite/calorie intake is slightly better these days, especially in the morning--though overall I'd say that she usually still has to eat deliberately rather than out of true hunger. The main problem is that she still feels terrible most evenings. She often can barely tolerate dinner some nights (we don't force it, and she eats enough at breakfast/lunch/snack that she can do without major evening calories). She describes it as a general malaise, "like when you have a fever and you feel a little nauseous and bad all over, not really hurting in one specific place." No diarrhea, cramping, or other specific GI symptoms. It seems much more related to time of day than to anything in particular that she's eating. She's still eating no oats. She has a relatively low-lactose diet--a little milk in her morning smoothie (that doesn't seem to affect her at all), doesn't like yogurt, occasional hard cheese that would be low in lactose already. Her diet doesn't vary a lot right now. She uses ginger chews and ginger tea. We're exploring probiotics and did take them a few times, but her celiac specialist warned that some probiotics are grown on a gluten-containing medium and we are awaiting a list of approved probiotics from her nurse.  We are aware that there is probably an anxiety component--she's definitely anxious--but we also don't want to discount her symptoms after all those years of thinking she had a "nervous tummy" when it was really celiac. Does anyone have other insights or suggestions to help with evenings? thanks!
    • My daughter also loves to make ginger bread house every Christmas. I buy this gluten-free kit every December from a gluten free bakery called Sensitive Sweets.   They ship the kit to our house. http://www.sensitivesweets.com/holiday-items/gluten-free-vegan-gingerbread-house-kit
    • We are going to try to make our own this year, but I've seen some great gingerbread houses made out of graham crackers. There are plenty of gluten-free graham crackers out there--Pamela's are nice and sturdy for building! If you make your own, the nice thing is that you don't have to worry whether it tastes good.   https://www.happinessishomemade.net/make-graham-cracker-gingerbread-houses/   https://gfjules.com/recipes/gluten-free-gingerbread-house-how-to/ https://www.glutenfreebaking.com/how-to-make-a-gluten-free-gingerbread-house/
