....Thanks for the replies. I've been gluten-free for about 2 years now. When I would get the vertigo attacks, would be if I ate something gluten on an empty stomach. Within 15 minutes everything would start spinning around me, I couldn't walk, I would sweat gallons, throw up, and people who hadn't seen me go through this before, would think I was dieing. This would go on for 4 to 6 hours.
....When I went gluten free, the vertigo attacks from Gluten (I would still get the occassional vertigo attack from Hypoglycemia) of course stopped but another thing of interest also happened. I was also suffering from constant dizziness, constant fatigue, and what we call at the meniere's board as "brain fog" which is a distant, far away feeling where you feel "detached" from the real world. Within three days of eliminating gluten all these symptoms went away also. I later was tested for a wheat allergy but thast came back negative but later I learned that you need to have ingested gluten for it to show up in an allergy test. I have also learned since then, as someone alluded to, that not only do you need to eat gluten but also have a biopsy done to prove that an allergy or intolerance is present.
....Well, I'll just have to be undiagnosed because I'm not eating gluten again and putting myself through all that. After Identifying the gluten trigger, it wasn't too long before I found the Hypoglycemic trigger. Again I haven't been officially diagnosed with that either, but with the gluten-free and HG diet, I have now gone 15 months without a vertigo attack and when I was at my worst, I was having them 2 times a week.
....The problem with th hypoglycemic diet is that I have put on weight and can't get it off without bringing on the vertigo and dizziness again. so I'll continue to search for answers. One of the reasons that I posted here is that I thought all of this was caused by Meniere's disease since vertigo attacks are a symptom of Meniere's. But I got to thinking that there's no reason to think that just becasue I developed Meniere's that I couldn't develope another chronic condition. I've even found that some of the asthma medications help with my dizziness caused by the Meniere's. So there seems to be a common thread between all the chronic conditions even though I don't know what it is but I would be willing to bet that gluten allergies or intolerances could be a big underlying cause for asthma, CFS, Fibro, Meniere's, and who knows what else.
...I don't know why it took so long to think of coming over here to see if anybody with Celiac disease was having vertigo attacks but if you all don't mind, I will hang around and maybe learn something.
