Thanks Everyone- when I get glutened I fall asleep fine but wake up at 4 or 5 a.m. (I play the kitchen fairy and do stuff around the house when I can't sleep) but then at like 11:30 I'm exhausted and have to nap. I'm wondering what other people experience. Thanks, Beverly

When glutened I usually have a lot of trouble getting to sleep and then wake up alot throughout the night. I am also sleepy no matter how much sleep I get when I am glutened.

Gluten makes me very sleepy, but I have a hard time going to sleep and I wake up a lot during the night. I think it's becasue gluten makes me very anxious for no reason... and no matter how tired I am, my body just has a hard time shutting itself down at night.

I have always had trouble sleeping. I can never seem to fall asleep, but boy can I sleep for hours on end when I am on gluten. When I lay off gluten, I sleep less, am less tired and fall asleep easily.

when I get glutened, I get overtired. I feel like I haven't slept for ages. This also happens when I accidently eat other foods I am allergic to. It actually happened with chick fill-a fries. I was so happy they were gluten-free. I didn't clue into the fact that they were cooked in peanut oil. After 2 hours, I was in the bed, with terrible fatigue. I could barely lift my head.

I've been gluten-free 4 mo. now--the 1st. couple of months gluten-free, it seemes like I couldn"t get enough sleep. I would fall asleep around 10PM and sleep dead till 7AM or so. I would want to lie down in the afternoon as well. At the moment, the pattern seems to be: fall asleep pretty easily, but wake early (5AM or so). I accidently used a soap which I think must have contained gluten a few days ago and during this time I have been waking up every couple of hours all night and still waking at 5. This AM the cramps seem to be gone :) had Cream of Rice for breakfast (so far, so good) hopefully I'll sleep through the night tonight. Also, I dream much more vividly now since gluten-free). Maybe for some reason, I remember them more?...

I wake up early when my symptoms are flaring up and sleep later after they calm down a bit. It's like when I need the rest most i can't get it!

I don't notice a difference at night when I am glutened, but during the day I can't keep my eyes open! That is one way I know I have been glutened... I will be sitting in a chair one minute and sound asleep the next!! Can NOT keep my eyes open!! It is like I have been drugged. NOT fun!

Carriefaith,

I'm so new to this site so don't know if I can get a responce from you even if you post one..I too get so hyper...I feel like my insides are stuck in neutral and running 1.000 miles per hr. Can't seem to calm down. I thought being 'gluten' made you tired, sluggish, and foggy. I've got so much to learn. Have been gluten free for 11 weeks then antibiotics, allergic reacton, trip to ER for breathing difficulty and HIVES the treatment was predizone and antihistimine...the predizone made me more hyper and couldn't sleep but 2-4 hrs a nite for 10days. feel like that again after eating a soup I made from BBQ'd chicken with soy sause marinade I thought was gluten-free and now know it had wheat...been on sites tonight to find the tamari...solution. So glad you posted about the hyper issue haven't seen that before or in my readings.

Thanks so much. You can always email me cause i might not find you again.

    • I added some onion powder to my dinner today.After eating it i became curious and send an email to manufacturer.They told me its not gluten free they add starch to it.And on package it was saying we dont add anything else:( i dont have symptoms yet but they were selling a range of gluten free products so i remembered like it was gluten free and ugh im so tired of getting glutened by random and useless stuff like this i was doing great for more than a month then this happened im just exteremely sad right now Motivate me for tomorrow guys :((())  
    • Thank you both for the replies. The article is very insightful. Right now I am trying to reason with the thought of being miserable for 4-8 weeks to get a diagnosis. I feel so good right now it seems almost not worth it, but I also need to know if something is wrong and if there are potentially any other digestive system issues. I will likely go on a gluten challenge and deal with the side effects... after all, Thanksgiving is coming up 
    • Cheetah, We all have to make our own health decisions based on our individual circumstances.  There is not any “one size fits all” approach.  ☹️In your daughter’s case, she was asymptomatic.  I also would find it hard to believe that she had celiac disease despite confirmed biopsies and antibodies tests.  I get the denial.  I just had anemia that was disguised by a genetic anemia.  I was shocked at the suggestion of celiac disease.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 and I knew exactly what the treatment meant — gluten free for life.  A total game changer.   Because we have bought our health insurance for over 20 years, we have lived through the times that I was uninsurable due to my Hashimoto’s, Rosacea and toe nail fungus (yes, that is right).    I never went without, but I could not freely jump from plan  to plan.  My premiums were higher than my hubby’s.  So, we worry that health insurance could change and I would be uninsurable again.  (Did I mention that our annual premium is $24,000?) However, the genetic test can be invaluable but is mostly used to help rule out celiac disease.  There are other genes associated, but they have not been studied well.   “So far, scientists have identified over a dozen possible non-H.L.A. genes that may be associated with celiac disease, but whether these genes actually play a role remains to be seen.”  (Sheila Crowe, now head of the American GI Association).   https://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/genetic-testing-for-celiac-disease/ The antibodies test, in conjunction with the biopsies is the best means of diagnosing celiac disease to date.  The blood test is the least reliable as there are false positives (rare).    It is hard to dispute villi damage.  Too bad your Aunt did not get a biopsy, but understandably, an endoscopy can be costly if you lack insurance and there are many other reasons, so many are forced to forgo this procedure.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/   It is unfortunate that we must weight the risks and benefits of everything.    
    • Kirsty, in my experience, being ‘gluten light’ is not helpful. I think it doesn’t make any sense tbh – it does more harm than good. The withdrawal period is very different from being gluten-free long term. The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely unpleasant but they are temporary! Let’s say 4-6 weeks. I personally was feeling like a drug addict or an alcoholic in rehab at the time. I was having all kinds of withdrawal issues – one of them was extreme hunger and unusual stomach cramps caused by hunger. I had to eat approx. every 2 hours – otherwise I would get very dizzy and lightheaded. It felt as if my body was finally getting the types of foods it needed (= gluten free) and wanted these ‘right’ foods constantly.   The fact that my body viewed gluten as a drug and was addicted to it was a proof in itself for me that I am gluten intolerant. Let’s say I wouldn’t eat any potatoes for 2 or 3 weeks – nothing would happen. Often the types of food we love the most, crave and can’t live without are the very types of food we are intolerant and addicted to. If you’re not a diabetic, the hypoglycemia could resolve completely on the gluten-free diet.   My advice would be read about gluten withdrawal and don’t let it discourage you.
    • I know this thread is eight years old, but I'm bringing it back because ingredients have (very likely) changed since 2009. Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls still don't list gluten, wheat, etc. But they did give my mom and I terrible stomachaches. I know the scientific method calls for repeat experiments but we don't really feel like it. However, I will say we usually stick to a strict gluten-free diet (only eat if it states gluten-free or if there's no way it contains gluten; fruit, veggies, etc) So it's extremely unlikely it was anything else. These were just a risk we took because there's so few explicitly gluten-free quick meals- we both work long-hour jobs and have school so quick meals are very helpful. TL;DR: They are very likely NOT gluten-free. Just because it doesn't say gluten/wheat in the ingredients doesn't mean it's not present. Call me paranoid, but I feel it's a good rule.
