Yet Another Post About Fatigue

12 posts in this topic

Ok ladies and gents, I have a question about fatigue:

I was diagnosed last Sept through enterolab and have been gluten free since 9/13/03.

Since I have been gluten-free for 4 months I thought some of these symptoms would be gone by now. Do any of you suffer from extreme fatigue? I worked one day last week for 4 hours, came home and was wiped out! :huh: I ended up in bed for the rest of the day resting. I can't do too much housework at one time bacause that wipes me out.

I do not take a multi-vitamin; I have to be careful because I am on thyroid replacement and cannot take anything with chromium in it, because it speeds up your metabolism.

I just want to feel normal. Any suggestions??

Talking about a brain fog, I totally forgot about the article about the 80mg of Vit B-6 for depression. I am going to try that maybe it will help with the fatigue too!

Stacie,

After I was diagnosed, my doctor told me to continue to take the iron supplements, and then she had me start taking B12 injections and the difference was been nothing short of AMAZING. I have so much energy that I'm almost giddy, I'm sleeping better, and feeling better overall than I have in such a long time. I have to get one more B12 and then she is going to check my bloodwork again to see if my body will begin to be able to absorb it through the digestive tract or if I will continue to need the shots.

More details as they become available, and hope this helps.

I also get very fatigued. I am anemic and am hypothryoid. My md tried me on iron and i just got diarrhea most people get constipated not me and I am on thyroid supplement and have been for years. I think this all goes along with Celiac.

I am putting thing together now all the different symtoms, got them all.

I have to rest every day in the afternoon, but I don't sleep well at night either.

I am not sure but I think the fatigue goes along with everything else.

Thanks for mentioning the fatigue I though I was just getting old and having to nap every afternoon.

eileen :rolleyes:

besides vitamin levels, low testosterone can also make you very tired.

Hi Eileen:

I am also hypothyroid and been on meds for it since 1999. My levels have been good for a while and I go to the doc on a regular basis for it, so I don't think it's my thyroid. I think the fatigue is a part of this mysterious disease. I am having blood-work done tomorrow, I am interested to know how my iron level looks like.

I too have to rest in the afternoon, usually around 2-3.

hi all,

a synopsis: diagnosed 11 months ago via enterolab, been gluten free since, am hypothyroid-but i'm on meds and i tested normal a month ago, was borderline anemic and deficient in b vitamins and some others before diagnosis.

i am always so tired. i'm finding it really difficult to be productive. the fatigue can be overwhelming. i don't notice it so much when i'm at home, but i am completely and totally wiped out after 8 hours of work. i've only been working one day a week for the last few months, and even that knocks me out for a day or two. last week i worked two full days in a row and the next day i slept for 16 hours. is this usual? and is there anything i can do to help myself feel less tired?

most of my symptoms have subsided quite a bit, but the tiredness keeps hanging on. any thoughts?

Carrie,

I wonder if you might be experiencing what's known as "adrenal exhaustion." You might want to do a Google search on the term. A website that I have found very informative is www.chronicfatigue.org. Nutritional support and some supplements (like pregnenolone for women or DHEA for men) can help a lot, but the specifics differ depending on each individual's present condition. I hope you find some helpful information in your search!

Beelzebubble, I have similar symptoms but they vary. Most weeks I have sustained energy throughout the day, but other weeks by 2PM I'm shot for the day. Even taking a nap doesn't help. I don't know what causes it, but it is frustrating and I'm sure related to celiac and/or the gluten-free diet. Have you had any luck diagnosing and/or treating yourself since you posted on 3/17?

I would like to know too. I am still tired and can't get to sleep at night. I work mornings only. I sometimes rest afternoons for awhile but whether I do or not I can' t get to sleep unless I use a sleeping pill. I had Iron injections when I was anemic in May. I am still low normal and have been gluten-free for 2 months.

    • 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.
