I am trying to follow a elimination diet that i started yesterday,I am trying to recognize on my own what else may be bothering me ( i heard this elimination diet can be more useful than Elisa Allergy tests)I am frustrated already as I do not know what to eat.I am avoiding dairy, gluten, corn, caffeine.....I took the few things that i feel may be a problem not sure.
anyhow I am already destraught as to what to eat during my avoidance diet.I keep getting this ringing in my ears and it could be anything but I just ate some carrots with artichoke, basil dip that I made and the terrible ringing began.
I dont usually eat carrots or artichoke and its healthy and not highly allergy foods so i cant figure out why.....I figured if anything my elimination diet will reveal dairy issues and maybe thats a big sumptom but I just started and I havent even got anywhere yet and carrots and artichoke is setting off the ringing????
any feedback from others who have ever had this

Ringing in the ears is called tinnitus. It can be caused by any number of things, and there are lots of ways it can be fixed. I wouldn't automatically assume that it's the food that made your ears ring. Correlation isn't causation. If my stomach hurts while I'm watching TV, it isn't the TV, you know? So I'd go to the doctor and have your ears checked out. My MIL has tinnitus and it drives her nuts, so I sympathize. I'm trying to get her to go to the doctor, too! Good luck!

The only time I've ever had tinnitus was when my doctor overprescribed a prescription medication. The ringing was unbearable and only stopped after eliminating the meds after several days. It doesn't seem likely that foods would cause the unusual reaction but throughout my 15 years of being gluten free I have had many weird and unusual symptoms that my doctor tells me he has never seen in other patients. Best to have this checked by a professional.

have you recently been taking a lot of analgesics? (aspirin, Tylenol etc?) or any other medications? These can cause tinnitus.

As can noise damage (mine started after an AC/DC concert in 1984 ;) ) Mine got worse recently while I was doing an 8 week gluten challenge. I'm waiting for it to stop screaming in my head, but it doesn't seem to want to go away this time.

I've read here on the forum that there may be some correation between tinnitus and B12 deficiency. I don't know if there is any scientific evidence of that, or just anecdotal.

The American Tinnitus Association is a really good source of info. There's some very interesting research in clinical trials now for Magnestic Resonance as a treatment for tinnitus.

http://www.ata.org

My spouses's tinnitus seems a bit more variable now that he has changed his diet. He has linked gluten mistakes to "screaming T." But he has also had the occasional "bad ear day" when he's very confident that his diet was correct. These days seem to line up with big barometric pressure shifts.

i have ringing in my ears. i did a search before being confirmed for celiac and the main reasons i found were to be loud noises/damage, ms, celiac and medication reactions. i was very afraid i had ms because i also had numbness/tingling. when i found out i had celiac i kinda assumed its a symptom from that. its been 6 weeks and i am still dealing with it. i hope it goes away. an ear, nose and throat doc said he didn't see anything unusual but you should get checked to be sure! :)

I too have the ringing in the ears and asked my natural doc about it Monday. He thinks it is connected to my liver, which has/is congested, and thinks it will clear up when I get straightened out.

I've had tinnitis for years. It doesn't seem to have any correlation with my diet, as I have at some point eliminated most everything. ENT doc couldn't find anything. I've read that it's not unusual not to find a cause.

I've had it in one ear only for over two years now, ever since I had six-week bout of coughing flu :(

I've had a 'whooshing' in my right ear for a couple of years now. I had a bout of vertigo right before it began. It comes and goes, but can be annoying.

Actually, so did I. But my ringing is 24/7 in my right ear. Very rare and short-lived appearances in my left.

I only get the ringing if I eat something which my digestive system has trouble with, but in those cases I know from the intestinal distress what food caused it. I have no doubt that the causes vary from person to person. I've read that certain nutrient deficiencies can also be involved.

Thank you for posting this.

When I get really sick from being glutened, the ringing in my ears increases. I have had ringing as far back as I can remember. Since going gluten-free, it gets much worse when I have been glutened.

For most of my life I've been able to ignore the ringing. However, now when I get a reaction, it gets so loud, it drives me nuts.

I definitely believe there is a connection with gluten.

Gluten aside, I also believe there is a connection with being over-medicated -- the only other times I've had an uncomfortable level of ringing is when I've taken too much aspirin or whatever.

I remember my mother-in-law, after being diagnosed with lung cancer, telling me that her ears rang horribly while on chemo.

I hope others will post here. I know I am probably not alone in having a gluten/increased ringing reaction.

Gluten Intolerant with double HLA-DQ6. Pre-diagnosis: Weight gain, swelling, diarrhea, mouth sores, back pain, body aches, fatigue, muscle weakness, BRAIN FOG, runny nose, recurrent sinus infections, bruising, low white cell count (whole life), and more. My feet were so bad, I could hardly walk. Toward the end: Chronic Vit. D deficiency (almost no D in my body despite a quality multi-vit. each day).

There is hope! Gluten-free since Sept. '09, and I have my life back - I feel better than in many, many years!

Cane sugar makes my ears ring. Depending on how much I eat, they can ring for days after wards.
