Does anyone else get these dizzy spells when really bloated. Not spinning dizzy, but more faint-like. I seem to get them when i feel bloated. Do the 2 go hand in hand? I got glutened on Saturday and now i am bloated and light headed. Anyone relate?

I know exactly how you feel! I am bloated all the time even though totally gluten-free, so I'm in the process of figuring it out with my doctor. On my really bad days I will be really faint and will start to black out EVERY single time I get up from a chair. When I'm having days like these I also feel a lot of pressure in my head and a horrible headache. Do you have any other symptoms that go along with the bloating and light-headedness?

i get the dizzies too. before diagnosis and before gluten-free it was room-spinning dizziness but ever since going gluten-free that is gone. lately, however, i have been getting more of the light-headed dizziness, kind of like the floor might fall out from under me. it has seemed to help to try to get up from sitting very slowly, to try to have me feet up as often as possible too. my primamry doctor thought i might have some condition abbreviated as POTS but I am trying to figure out if a food is the culprit before trying any medication or further testing. yesterday, i tried gluten-free noodles and also ate cashews for the first time since starting this gluten-free diet and today I have been having these dizzy, off feelings - and not tertribly bloated but kind of burpie. hope to figure it out.

Sounds like your blood pressure might be low. I've had this many of times. I also have a theory on the dizziness. If there is alot of gas in our stomachs and intestines it must somehow get absorbed in our bloodstream. That has got to be why we feel so spacey and lightheaded. I guess the question would be what is this gas made up of? and can there be anything we can do to rid our bodies of it. Wouldn't it be the opposite of what happens when your deep sea diving and what happens when you get too deep into the waters and get what's called the bends.(sp?)

I guess I should google it and do some researching. Good question though cause I hate that feeling. I wonder if others feel this as much as we do. Doubt if I'll find anything on the subject.

I do. I think I was glutened on Saturday night and it is now a Wednesday night. But even gluten free - I also get faint-like/sleepy/dizzy --- I would also appreciate any insights on this. Does anyone think this relates to blood sugar instability? I think I feel better when I stick to mini-meals throughout the day...

    • Biopsy completed
      I was diagnosed with blood tests in October with celiac.  My numbers were all so positive and high, and therefore, elected not to go through with the biopsy.  He diagnosed with my celiac then. However aftrr 3 months of pain , I did go though wiith the biopsy.  My doctor said I didn't even need to go back on gluten which was fabulous for me.  He said with the numbers that I have, the pain I am in, he has no doubts I sill have damage.  So, that is what I did.  No gluten challenge here. I was happy that virtually everything was good. Stomach was great. However, I did have "duodenal mucosal changes" -- which were "supicious' for celiac.  Now we wait for the biopsy samples to come back.  
    • Normal Iga Levels For Kids?
      Just came back from a pediatric GI doctor with my 12 year old. the doctor told me that Chris' IgA level of 45 is too low and normal range for his age is 70. Although the standard Celiac panels came back negative twice, he wants another done with TTG and IgG.
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life!
