The past two months I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with my digestive tract. I know that extreme emotional distress can flare up a gluten allergy whereas before you had no symptoms. I have undergone a lot of negative life changes in the two months on top of other health issues. My anxiety became SOOO out of control to the point where just leaving my room gave me anxiety.

Has anyone ever undergone so much anxiety/stress/depression that it triggered a gluten allergy?

Can the reverse happen? Because I'm sure that gluten can aggravate my brain fog, making pushing through my anxieties more difficult.

Yes, actually gluten can cause anxiety, depression, brain fog and fatigue so with someone who already has anxiety, it can just make it worse

Then I should just stop eating bread. :'( Which will be hard to give up.

No need to give up bread. If you're actually gluten sensitive, you can get gluten free food or bread that doesn't have wheat/barley/rye

I get a bad reaction if I eat too much gluten, grease or concentrated amounts of sugar. I don't know if it's related to anxiety or not.

Just make the allergy test and you ll know. If you were not intolerant before it s unlikely you ll be so now.

Gluten free bread... is not really bread. It doesn't compare unhapilly. Still eatable I suppose.
