Anxiety Symptoms

Hi everyone!

I was just diagnosed with celiac last week, but I've been off gluten for a month - since right after the biopsy. I've been dealing with some pretty bad anxiety for the last year, which is about the same time I've been going through the motions to get diagnosed with celiac (blood test positive, first biopsy negative, second biopsy finally positive!). I was just wondering how many of you have suffered from anxiety and whether or not it went away when you went gluten-free, and if it did, how long did it take?

I still sort of deal with it, but i'm not having panic attacks, hyperventalating, etc anymore. It has improved majorly.

I have always been described as an anxious person, even when I was a kid. It seems to be improving now, but I still have some bad days. I have only been gluten free since August.

I am going throught the process of being diagnosed at the moment, just had a positive blood test a month ago. I have anxiety on and off as well for a while now, I have started my gluten free diet two weeks ago and have yet to see a change in my anxiety. I am hoping that change will come but I am worried it will stick even after the diet change. Its the symptom I have the hardest time with, the stomach pain and digestive issues are easy to deal with when the anxiety and fatigue arent present.

Im sure it will improve, and I like reading that others are in the same boat.

Thanks

thanks for your replies...

I am holding out hope! I find it hard to tell what's going to end up a celiac symptom and what's not. I am tired all the time, but I don't keep a very strict sleep schedule either. The anxiety is the worst though. It did seem to get bad at the same as my gasto issues did so hopefully they'll both die down together!

Try easing off on caffeine, Im finding some relief with that.

I switched to green tea from thick coffee and i am seeing a little improvement.

I was never one to scrutinize what I put into my body before this, but it seems to hold a lot of answers

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
