Does anyone else with gluten intolerance fall asleep after consuming glutens?
Gluten Intolerance Can Make You Sleepy

Lately I've wondered if some of my problems are related to a spastic colon and perhaps gluten intolerance.
Besides the typical bloating and IBS, I have hypothyroid and an impaired immune system.
But I have a rare neuro-nervous system disorder called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) which developed after severe trauma & subsequent surgeries. Impaired immune system also occurs in RSD patients.
I also have swallowing problems that are related to medications to treat RSD- and nerve tingling (also believed to be RSD).
I have strong reactions whenever I eat whole wheat breads and barley.
One of the strangest responses I have is falling asleep after eating barley. I recognized this years ago and thought it was an allergy so avoided anything with barley and/or malted barley.
Recently my doctors have had me eating barley cereal before bed to substitute sleep meds. It works great for sleep but seems to be having a lingering effect. Some days I can't seem to wake up at all. Other days I just fall asleep easily.
Does anyone else notice that glutens cause sleepiness?
Thanks for your help
