Re: Gluten Withdrawal Symptoms
Hi, I think it's quite normal to have these symptoms when first going gluten free. I had a similar experience when I first went gluten free almost 2 years ago now. It's difficult to maintain a gluten free diet at first and I think that can cause anxiety, then in turn upset stomach and feelings of depression because of not being able to partake of all things you have been able to have in the past. There are now alot of places that serve gluten free foods but you can never be to sure especially with cross contamination issues and for me that still causes some stress but it gets easier as you go along and you learn to relax a bit more too. And of course there is the trial and error of getting gluten by mistake but it does get easier and you make notes as to what places and products are safe and that way you feel more in control and you will lessen your anxiety. I think I started to relax after about 6 months into it, so just hang in there. Let me know how you are doing and if there's anything else I can help with.
