Wow, thank you so much all of you for the positive and uplifting responses! I hope you're all feeling better from your individual experiences. In addition to my other symptoms, yes, I have been extremely hungry! I'm trying to stay away from processed foods as much as possible it's just very hard when constantly on the go; however, I have been pretty ardent about checking labels and doing research for hidden gluten. I've also been having headaches and weird pupil dilations which I assume is also related tot he fatigue and withdrawals. It helps a lot knowing that I'm not alone. Thanks, hopefully it'll be over soon.
Hi there everyone. I'm new to the forum and also new to the gluten-free diet. I have been gluten and casein free for the past 3 weeks, with a few minor accidents; however, I have been having extreme withdrawal symptoms. I've always had anxiety disroders, but it has dramatically increased since going on a gluten-free diet. I have been nervous with almost no provocation and had multiple panic attacks while just trying to fall asleep! I'be woken up in the middle of the night with the "shakes" and also have been feeling extremely fatigued. My gastrointestinal problems are essentially how they were before I started the diet and I think the fatigue is improving. I was just wondering if these symptoms are normal? And if eating a small amount of teriaki sauce last night by accident(one small sliver of meat basted with it), and accidentally ingesting soy sauce over a week ago will prolong my withdrawals? Thank you.
