ok

ive been trying to be gluten and dairy free for 2 weeks now( 90% id say) im having trouble saying no when someones made me a dinner or if im out shopping an we go for lunch. so my acid reflux has completely disappeared but my sleep patterns have changed.

from sleeping from 12 midnight to 7.15 in the morning, no dreams, no waking up- dont think id have noticed if a brass band had played a whole concert in my bedroom, to literally not being sleepy, im wide awake and when i finally sleep im having vivid dreams of the willy wonka/ texas chainsaw massacre variety :unsure: . its completely doing my head in!!! last night i woke up, lay there a bit - wide awake and thought oh well i may as well get up. when i checked the clock it was 3.45am , i cant cope not sleeping and coz my symptoms are anxiety related i find im overanalyzing the dreams.

is this common to have your sleep patterns change when going gluten free coz it driving me bonkers!!!!! :blink:

Hi, I have had vivid dreams/nightmares for a while but I haven't noticed any corelation between what I eat and what I dream about. I find that if I nap 15 minutes in the evening that I don't have any nightmares during my real sleep.

I've noticed crazy dreams as well. ........and troubles sleeping. I found out about the celiac a month ago. I was very careful, but got glutened when I ate at a restaurant (twice in the same week!)

I'm feeling extremely tired and my whole body hurts. My doctor says it's normal and might take a while to get back to normal.

I cannot wait

You might be wise to limit restaurant eating for a while until you get more experienced with the diet and which places are safe to eat at ;)

    • Try to order from Indian Sweets and Spices  in the Silver Lake Area of Los Angles.  Also many stores in Chicago that have millet and amaranth. I make  Ragi roti  but buy the  ragi in LA good luck
    • Thanks for the responses- I was hoping that there could be another possibility. Talked to her endo who is referring us to a gastro so that she can do a biopsy. Trying to come to terms with this. I knew something wasn't right with her but was hoping for it to be a thyroid condition like her sister since we already deal with that. If celiac is in her future - I'm sure we will figure it out like we did with type 1- and looking forward to having her feel better. 
    • I do think sunscreen could be an issue for people. I realize that it is only an issue if ingested. I have very pale children. We use thick zinc oxide and waterproof sunscreen. I apply it every hour or we will burn. I have it coating my hands at the end of every pool trip. We swim daily in the summer in a Texas. There is nothing else to do when it's this hot!  It takes me multiple hand washings to get it off my hands. Often times, while at the pool or beach, we eat - chips, watermelon, nuts etc. I assume it touches the food i ingest. Ours is gluten-free. 
    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
