Celiac Disease and Sleep


Sleepiness and fatigue are common symptoms coexisting with a number of diseases. So is the case for celiac disease, a chronic autoimmune disease – which means that you cannot “grow out” of it. Screening for celiac disease is especially important because some people have no symptoms except seeming to need more sleep than usual.
Has anyone here experienced excessive sleepiness prior to a celiac disease diagnosis, or since diagnosis?
