I Can't Sleep!

Ok its about Day 4 into going gluten free and I noticed that I had a hard time sleeping since Day 2. I would go to bed at 9pm or 10pm and I'd still be squirming around at 1 or 2am in the morning. I really don't hit my sleeping period until 8am then wake up at 10am. So I've only been getting 2 hours of sleep since Day 2. Is this normal for gluten free dieting? I'm fine with everything else... I feel much better and active compared to when I was eating wheat all the time.

More than likely you are vitamin deficient. The body has to ahve the correct balance of vitamins or insomnia will result. More than likely it is magnesium that you need but make sure you have enough B12, calcium, d, and iron.

Can celiacs still get all their vitamins by eating vitamin pills? If so, shouldn't that cause some kind of bad reaction?

I can't eat gluten, wheat, shellfish, and corn. I've been eating all kinds of fruits, veggies, and beans.

When I went gluten free I also had trouble sleeping while I was going thru withdraw from the gluten.

Also I would encourage you to have your thyroid checked

No, but I'm sure its low as I have been avoiding foods that contain them. I usually don't take vitamins, but would they be a better subsitute? Does it have vitamins that contain the same kind from wheat and corn?

Vitamins are not a substitute for food but many celiac's have vitamin deficiencys that require supplements.

There are vitamin that are wheat and corn free but you need to read the labels very very carefully.

So the gluten aren't within the Vitamins/Vitamin Supplements themselves but the actual bread or flour?

actually most breads and flours are fortified with vitamins . There are some vitamins that add gluten/wheat as binders and fillers but with careful search you can find gluten free ones. :)

    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
