Double Vision

Has anyone heard of a connection between double vision and celiac disease. I have double vision caused by nerve damage to three cranial nerves. My eye specialist recently mentioned a possible connection.

Hello Jean.

I am a 39 year old woman with celiac and a history of thyroid disease. Unfortunately, my celiac was misdiagnosed for 6 years and I now have a great doctor, however, prior to my diagnosis of celiac, I went to the emergency room from work thinking that I was having a stroke or something. I couldn't take the pain in my left arem and my leg would ache and go numb on me. My reg docs wouldn't listen to me so after feeling awlful the whole day in my office I drove myself to the emergency room. They did a ct of my brain and found a large mass on my brain stem. This alrmed the docs and the report was sent to my general doc and he concluded that I had severe calcification which was known as osteoarthritis. Hmmm....well, now that i have celiac, I am rethinking as I have made an appointment to see a neurologist so that I can once and for all put that part to rest. My new doc told me that the pain in my legs and arms is most likely due to celiac. My vision has been blurred lately. It kindof goes on me and then returns to normal which is why I decided to see a neurologist. All of this so many years later. It all makes me sick. It could've been diagnosed so much earlier. Well, I also read that calcium will build up in various sites in the body including parts of the brain. So, in a long answer to you, yes I have heard of it. I will know more in a week or so as I have my appointment then. I would be int. to know more as to what your condition is. My doc at prebyterian hosp here inpgh would like me to give him the inof. that I found in some studies on the internet as he never heard of that kind of calcification and celiac. Take comfort in knowing that there are others like you. I will keep you updated when I go to the doc. I would like to know more about your condition though. Take Care. Natalie

I too have double vision and it feels like a lot of work to keep my eyes focused. All of these vision problems leave me feeling dizzy most of the time. I haven't seen or heard it mentioned as a symptom of celiac, but I understand how you feel. Take care.

I have double vision too.I have a lot of health problems also. I feel dizzy always.

I see neurologist , eye specialist and gastr.,ENT specialist.But we couldn't solve this problem.My neurologist suspected sixth nerve pulse and my gast. said that it might be deficiency of B-6, B-12 vitamins. Is there any one who knows the treatment of these diplopi and vertigo problems related to celiac disease.I'm doing gluten-free diet for 2 years.I need help!!!!!!

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
