I've noticed two occasions in the past couple of months where eating some gluten after being totally gluten free (and perhaps with a reduction in protein?) resulted in a day or two of being in a truly foul, angry mood. I look back and its like looking back at a totally different person, very Jekyll & Hyde-ish. How extreme should this be?
I'm pretty certain what precipitated it this time - a couple of days at Disney and 4 occasions that week of eating way more gluten than I usually have (1/2 a hot dog bun (along w crappy dog), gyro w/ flatbread, 1 slice pizza, two slices of poundcake). I carried a good supply of nuts for snacking but clearly I need to research where to eat there since we'll be going back several times this year and take more/different things to snack on.

Some folk are affected this way by gluten.
A good friend would go into unprovoked rages--all stopped when she went gluten-free.
