Do You Have Dreams About Accidentally Eating Gluten?

14 posts in this topic

The reason I am wondering is that I have had these dreams for so long. I'll be eating something like a cookie, or a sandwich (last night it was corn flakes) and then it will occur to me that I'm not supposed to be eating it at all. In the last week both my mom and my daughter have both asked me if I had dreams where I'm eating gluten. They have the same dreams. I have a dream almost every night.

OFTEN! I used to have "fun" nightmares - like zombie-movie-action dreams. Now all of my nightmares involve accidentally eating cake or bread. I'm usually several bites in before I realize, causing my dream self to spit and scrape my tongue. Also, whenever I discover a new food that unexpectedly has gluten in it, I'll dream about it that night (I'm looking at you, Twizzlers).

This is one of the weirder symptoms of this whole troublesome disease.

Definitely. I have these a lot. I remember thinking in my dream,'what am I doing' but can't stop eating whatever it is.

Then you wake up and feel relieved. More of a nightmare really.

This has happened to me too! It probably sounds stupid to non-celiacs, but when you know what that would do to you it's legitimately terrifying!

have these a lot. Usually in the dream I either induce vomiting or end up vomiting for a long time, even though vomiting hasn't ever been once of my symptoms (but reflux so bad I WISH I were vomiting, now that I've had). or I'll spit it out and scrape tongue... once I had a dream that I ate a lot of gluten and ended up unconscious/paralysed. That one was weird.

I also have dreams where I'm scared to death in a bakery or something. or refuse something that looks and smells delicious and when I wake up I'm like, "damn, i could've eaten that"

It's completely normal to have these dreams. When I first went gluten-free it was always about being at a BBQ party eating big fluffy buns. I mentioned it to my doctor and she said she had those dreams when she was about to graduate from med school. In her dreams, she couldn't find the lecture hall where she was supposed to take her last exam, so she would be running all over the place looking. She said it's from feeling unprepared. It's a major life change and something that causes anxiety.

Those dreams were so realistic too!

I have these dreams too, but I rarely have the realization in the dream that I can't have it. Instead I wake up thinking "What the h***?? Why would I do that?"

I have these dreams (or nightmares) quite often. Fortunately I do not get sick if I get glutened (in real life, and in my dreams as well), but it still harms me in the long run.

I've had a couple in the last year. I'm always glad when I wake up and determine it was a dream!

Oh yes. I hate those dreams. My last one, I was eating a cheeseburger. And when I realized my mistake, I was even more upset because I don't even really like cheeseburgers, and I was like, "WHY am I eating this???"

I have that too! All the things I never enjoyed when I could physically eat them show up in my dreams now.

I have these dreams every once in a while (more like nightmares). It really sucks. Once I wake up I have to figure out if it was a dream or real.

I have had those dreams a million times ill eat something I can't have and realize all of a sudden that im not supposed to have it then I'll either spit it out or pig out on it because i already ate some anyways. Its a relief waking up though knowing I didn't really get glutened

    • Thanks for the response, all helpful. Here is the ingredients for the Claritin reditabs:  anhydrous citric acid, gelatin, mannitol, and mint flavor. And here is the ingredients for the nasal spray: An aqueous suspension containing the active ingredient fluticasone propionate USP, and the inactive ingredients 0.02% w/w microcrystalline cellulose and carboxymethylcellulose sodium, dextros, 0.02% w/w benzalkonium chloride, polysorbate 80, and 0.25% w/w phenylethyl alcohol, and has a pH between 5 and 7. Does anyone see anything suspicious I am still new at looking up unusual hidden gluten sources.
    • Hi Spencer88- just wanted to update you on the splinter hemorrhages. I went to my GI doctor and he ran a bunch of bloodwork. I didn't actually get the bloodwork done for a few weeks as I wanted to go back to consistently taking my B-12, D3, K, and multi.(Solgar VM-75)  When I did get the bloodwork done, all the numbers came back fine. Vitamin C is water soluble so harder to test for than A,D,E, and K but I thought A,D,E, & K would serve as an indication of how my body was absorbing. Splinter hemorrhages have grown out on my one toe and seem to be growing out on my other foot as well. Today, I think one may be starting on another toe, so am increasing my clementines to 3 a day again and seeing what happens. (I had gone down to one a day). This seems so non- scientific, but I am giving it a shot. My GI also wanted me to check with a rheumatologist, but my tests for RA and Lupus all came back fine, so not sure I will be making an appointment. Getting tired of jumping from doctor to doctor. So far have seen General practitioner, GI, Cardiologist, & Dermatologist. We have ruled out a lot, but no answers as to why. Getting tired of hearing the word "idiopathic". How are you doing?
    • :-D I'm hoping the labs will show something, but I'm thinking you're right and I'll just have to go gluten-free if there're no "evidence". My doc seemed willing to ask for a skin biopsy if it flares again, so that may do it if the labs don't. The tricky thing is most of my symptoms are gone since I cut out milk, except the rash crops up every now and then, my scalp never calms down completely, and my hair falls out. Huh, I guess that's still pretty unsatisfactory, lol.  I may just need to cut out the gluten after we get through the testing.
    • Are you now gluten free? Urinary issues are definitely a celiac / NCGS symptom. I used to drink tons of water / other drinks and had to urinate quite frequently when I was eating gluten. Once I stopped this was no longer the case. I still have the urge to urinate though, but far less frequently!
