Re: Obtaining Buprenorphine - Pseudoname?

Pseudoname, I found your name after reading this post:

The symptoms you describe seem fairly similar to my own, so I'd like to share what I've learned in my quest to be happier.

I have gluten sensitivity, which is an extremely underdiagnosed disorder, since it has no specific set of symptoms. Gluten is in wheat and some other grains. When eaten, basically anything in the body can act up, or you may appear completely symptom free, or symptoms may slowly appear seemingly without cause as you grow older. If you are gluten sensitive, though, gluten is causing damage in varying degrees to your body. Many gluten sensitive individuals have only neurological symptoms, and never know the cause.

In some individuals, including a majority of autistics, gluten acts as a long-lasting opiate. So these people are basically sending their endorphin/exorphin levels up and down constantly throughout their whole life.

I am almost positive I fit into this category. I cut all gluten out of my diet about six weeks ago. I've had mild depression and anxiety for a very long time, but these past six weeks have been worse than ever. I had to leave college for this quarter since this gluten withdrawal was worse than I expected. Almost all of the time has been spent as hours and hours in front of the TV.

Many of my current symptoms match up with opiate withdrawal symptoms, which reinforces my position. I've experienced depression, anxiety, panic attacks, leg cramps, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, insomnia, and cravings for the drug itself (hunger all day no matter how much I eat).

Look into gluten sensitivity and gluten's role as an opiate, both proven through studies. Who knows, you might find that this is the answer that finally makes sense for you, or maybe not.

To health and happiness!
