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 ;)

    • It's good to know it was of use, thanks for letting me know   All the best, Matt
    • Hi Matt,   Thank you very much for a thorough response. Your link seems to cover pretty much all the questions one might have in my current situation. I appreciate it.   Have a wonderful day, Lex
    • I am worried about the cost but I think having that test done would help me rule things out. Either way I need to see a G.I my issues are getting out of control.
    • Thank you for all the information. I am sorry for the late reply to everyone. I have been feeling worse and worse lately. Got the blood test results, it came back negative. Seeing a G.I specialist in three months (too long for me :/) I've been keeping a food diary and realize I feel worse after eating gluten. After the G.I I want to start the diet. I'm going to call him and see if I can get seen sooner. The bloodwork said theres no signs of inflammation and they don't suspect it to be autoimmune but they want me to do the diet anyway. I wish I had answers because my vision is getting worse, cramping, nerve pain and trips to the bathroom are amplifying. Meh. Also I have a vitamin d deficiency so I am taking d3 2000iu with vitamin b12. Thanks for the help! 
    • I'm sorry you are dealing with this. My son deals with food intolerances that are not identified by any biomarker as well. I hear the same response from doctors in that, "if the food makes him feel bad then it's probably best to avoid the food." (Thanks for your insight doc!) His symptoms are not dermatological though. His symptoms are mostly neurological and psychiatric with some bloating and mild digestive issues. He loses his mind quite literally if he digests gluten. Also develops what is known as a stereotypy, involuntary movement of hands. He is otherwise a normal child. We are unable to obtain any kind of diagnosis though.  I know you're avoiding a lot of foods right now, but don't get discouraged. It's just a way of life and you're doing the right thing. Right now we are avoiding foods such as soy, all types of grain, chocolate, dairy and nightshades. I have limited his iodine intake as well. I have personally found that gluten, iodine and soy cause intensely itchy blisters and joint pain for me. Perhaps have you tried cutting back on iodine intake?
