Ring! Ring!

My ears ring constantly when I sit in dead silence (ie, falling asleep at night). What causing this? I need to answer my "head phone".

Thanks!!!!

I saw something on ringing ears on Jessica's group....USA Silly-Yaks....maybe you could join or contact this person with a subject "Celiac Disease" or something....after all, it was asked if anyone could relate....I don't know if this is the solution, but it might help to have someone to talk to about it or compare with....hope this helps:

I also get a ringing in my ears quite often. Sometimes it bothers me, but most of the time it doesn't. I've always had it since I was a kid, so I figure I must just be used to it. It could possibly be a nutritional deficiency, but I don't know, since I can't get any of my doctors to order any more tests for me... I guess I could push harder, but I am just so sick of having to push the doctors to do anything for me.

But sometimes the ringing is so loud that I can't hear anything else for about 30 seconds or so. Other times it is just this noise in the back ground (but really it's just in my head!) It is more noticable at night when the house is quiet.

God bless,

Well, I won't be much help here...but...

I have heard that ringing in the ears is caused by a vitamin deficency. But, alas, I don't remember which vitamin. I know, I know, I am sooooooo helpful! <_<

That's helpful :D ....after all, you're confirming Mariann's idea of a nutritional deficiency. I have had that ringing before, but very infrequently........I don't have it anymore........so I'm the one that isn't of much help :P

I have had the ringing for years. It happens in silence and not. It drives me nutty most of the time!

I have a book on vitamin and mineral supplements and in the section on hearing loss (which also includes ringing in the ears) it says that ringing in the ears can be caused by magnesuim deficiency and also might be connected to a zinc deficiency. Other hearing problems can be deficiencies in vitamins A, E & D.

It also said that many hearing problems are aggravated by sugar and high fat foods, and also by food sensitivities. So for most of us it could be any one or a combination of all those things!

God bless,

Mariann

    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid.
