Ringing In Ears Anyone Have This Ever And Often?What Was It?
0

21 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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

Christina - One of the most common causes of ringing in the ears is drugs in the group salicylates. The prototypical example would be aspirin, but the main ingredient in Pepto Bismol, Bismuth subsalicylate, can also cause this annoying side effect. So can a number of prescription drugs commonly used in gut problems, like the 5-ASA anti-inflammatory agents, such as Pentasa. I've personally had ringing in the ears from all these drugs. Susceptibility can vary widely among users. The good news is the ringing goes away when you quit taking the drug, though it can take a day or so to taper off. Are you taking any of these types of drugs?

That is very interesting. Around the holidays, I had a HORRIBLE time with my ears ringing. I was eating gluten-free (or trying to, anyway!), but I was also indulging in more sweets than usual, as well as more processed gluten-free foods.

I had a definite increase in ringing. I was also very sick for a time. I thought it might have been because I had been cross-contaminated or the refined gluten-free foods, but maybe it was the sugar specifically.

I appreciate your post -- I will need to pay more attention to sugar "ringing" in the future.

Augh: I really need to keep a better food jounal than I now do. I HATE journaling, but it would probably help.

Thanks again, ilikepie.

I came to this website searching for any connection between celiac and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Since I started the gluten-free diet a week ago, my long-standing tinnitus appears to be lessening. So odd. Reading these blogs suggests there may be a connection...but perhaps more from a nutritional standpoint than the disease itself...and then again, maybe not? Is there any real research being done on this subject? Thanks.

Many people report it but I don't know about the relationship. My tinnitus didn't start until I was gluten free and dealing with other intolerances. Fortunately, only one ear.

I just found I have anemia due to deficiency of folate and one of the symptoms of that is Ringing in the ears!

I had it WORSE when still consuming gluten--my head buzzed like mad..whooshing, etc....but now, it is just a low tone.

Maybe it will resolve after my folate level goes up?

CANE SUGAR! Cane sugar caused horrible ringing in my ears. And it's not just after I eat some. It could be days later, randomly coming on in the middle of the night...it took a long time to figure out. Now that I eat zero cane sugar, I get the terrible ringing almost instantly after it's ingested. It lasts for days and days and days, even from less than half a teaspoon. The more I eat, the worse and longer it would remain.

Don't believe anyone who tells you this ringing only comes in the form of a disease, and the only cure is medication.

Good luck.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
