  1. Hi, I'm a 23 years old male and I've been suffering from severe reactions to gluten for about 5 years. My symptoms immediately after eating gluten (proportional to the amount ingested) are: Heart palpitations. Strong anxiety. High blood pressure. Belly bloating and strong indigestion. Strong water retention (depending on the amount ingested, anywhere from 4-6kg), seen on the scale in a day approx. Lots of energy, probably due to the high blood pressure or anxiety. Insomnia. Inability to rest. Whenever I eat gluten, I feel very energized and euphoric (and somehow very motivated to work and do stuff, and focused), but these comes with anxiety, heart palpitations, restlesness, bloating, etc. The problem is, I have done a gluten free diet for 3-4 months and my digestive issues, anxiety, etc were immediately and totally relieved, however, I got back to eating gluten because I was feeling very depressed, unable to enjoy any activity, very low mood, very strong brain fog, extreme fatigue, low sex drive, I had really low blood pressure and I was VERY hungry. I was never satisfied by any amount of food and I was gaining lots of weight, plus I felt very depressed all along. Whenever I eat some gluten (e.g. 1-2 slices of bread), I get instantly energized but the anxiety is strong and I retain many kilograms of water (alongside the big swelling of my lower abdomen), which makes me look quite fatter without actually eating more. What do you suggest I can do? It seems like a gluten free diet is not viable, and, after sticking to it for almost 4 months, I had to give it up as I was severely depressed, always hungry and tired, and could not keep going on with my daily life anymore. I feel like there's nothing I can do to feel completely good, since either eating gluten or going gluten free has its own set of side-effects. (Eating gluten keeps me mentally sane and going gluten free does not) Last, it seems that gluten-containing products, mostly bread and cookies, are the only thing that can reduce my hunger and make me feel full and energized. Note: I have done blood tests for celiac disease and got negative, but it was after I was 2 months into the gluten free diet so the doctor told me it might be a false negative. Any thoughts and help you can offer is greatly appreciated, I am very desperate about this. Thank you.
  2. I haven't been diagnosed with celiac but have 2 of the possible 4 genes that celiacs have. I am needing to get an endoscopy. I'm hypothyroid with digestive issues for a few years now. I've been low gluten for this time but am currently 4 weeks cold turkey. A slip up a week ago though, where i ate gluten. I have good and bad days - mostly bad. I feel like I'm getting worse. Severe bloating. Depression. Fatigue. Cravings. When does it get better?
  3. I’ve read a number of posts about gluten withdrawal in the archives but I have some specific questions I didn’t see any answers to. I’m on week 9 of a gluten (and dairy) free diet; and I’ve noticed that the very symptoms I meant to improve are the same symptoms that the gluten free diet has aggravated. Memory, concentration, fatigue, and energy have all gotten much worse than they already were. I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome a few years ago but now I have to wonder what the cause of that is. No change has been noticed in my other diagnoses like IBS or hypothyroidism. This is the second time I’ve tried this diet, I did it first just a month before the second attempt. I got these symptoms then too, but I had thought it was because I went cold turkey and shocked my system. So I ate gluten again for 2 weeks and weaned myself off this time before starting the diet again, but 5 days into the 9 week gluten free diet and the symptoms were as strong as they were the first time. My first question is to people who have experienced longer withdrawals upon going gluten free. Was it the case that the withdrawal you dealt with was proportional to the improvement of symptoms after the withdrawal went away? That is, the improvement relative to your pre-gluten-free-diet state of health. I am wondering whether those with the most severe withdrawals notice the most intense improvements and whether those who experience more tolerable withdrawals only improve a moderate amount, or whether the two things are unrelated. For my second question; can anyone speculate whether I might have made a major mistake by going off the gluten-free diet for 2 weeks? I am concerned about whether I somehow tricked my body into thinking that glutening was something that could happen again at anytime, and that it might think it can’t let its guard down now. If that happened it could be much longer until the withdrawal lets up, and 9 weeks with zero sign of getting better is making me a bit antsy already.
  4. Hi, I am new to the site. I was just diagnosed at the end of December and started the gluten free diet a few days ago. I did not have any symptoms while I was eating gluten (I was diagnosed because my doctor decided to run a routine blood test and added the celiac panel because I have had Graves disease) but the second day I was gluten free I started a horrible headache and I have been feeling sick ever since. I even threw up this morning. Is this typical and if so how long does it usually last?
  5. Hey all, I've been on a gluten free diet since I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. Just wanted to know if this was normal. Um....for starters I feel like I've just left a drug rehab facility. This is gluten here folks! Why am I so moody and out of my mind? I am having these extreme highs, and extreme lows in mood, and am crying all of the time. Sometimes because I am happy, sometimes, because I am sad (over nothing of course). Then a few days ago I was driving to work and felt like I was stoned out of my mind (in a good way of course, along with my body getting all tingly like it does if I were to hypothetically partake in such an activity). I just wanted to grab everyone's face and be like "life is great!" and kiss them on the forehead. Then after a few days of that, I just wanted to cry because I was really depressed. Also the bloating seems to be coming back, and I am not ingesting any gluten (I have been REALLY careful about this). I am a little worried that I got gluten bombed at Christmas dinner, but I checked all of the labels for gluten, and my family knows what is going on (I've also convinced them to get screened because they have all of the same symptoms that I have). Some days, my anxiety completely goes away, other days it's out ocontrol. What is going on? Is this gluten withdrawal? Or have I been gluten bombed? I am also on a gluten-free colon cleanse right now (it's uber gentle and uber awesome for anyone with IBS or constipation- It gets rid of all of the undigested plaque in your system- been using it for years http://www.drnatura.com ), so I am supplementing with gluten-free probiotics, and multivitamins, and making sure I am drinking PLENTY of water. I just need to know that this is normal, and going to a doctor is out of the question since I am uninsured and am flat broke. When does this get better? It's so early in this game, I can't quite tell what my body is reacting to! I just want to get back into my pants again!
