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.

    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
