Super Dizzy W/ No Other Real Symptoms..
0

6 posts in this topic

hi everyone,

brief backstory: had 2 accidental glutaminations which I am recovering from, so it's not much of a mystery WHY I'm having these symptoms,

-but-

I am hugely dizzy, not the lightheaded, shaky kind, but the I-just-spun-around-fifty-times kind, where the room feels like it's swaying and swooping and if i try to walk I bump into the wall eventually.

other than that, no real symptoms.

is there any way to make this go away/ease it up

or do i just have to sit on my couch w/ my eyes closed and wait for it to stop?

it's not low blood sugar related, i don't believe, b/c that feels very different.

help!

I also get this, it is usually related to your ears. I have allergies and every August I get this symptom, especially when lying in bed and turning over. I usually just wait and the spinning stops. I tahe a antihistamine, like Zyrtec or Claritin. Ideally a decongestion would work better but they make my heart beat too fast.

I've had this happen twice - and the feeling lasts three days or so for me, but I didn't connect it to a gluten experience. My allergist ran some blood tests, though I forget exactly which ones, but found nothing odd. I would encourage you to talk to your doctor about it!

Several years ago this happened to me. Since I travel for my job and I would have to stay up late to complete a project, I would be drinking a lot of caffeine drinks and eating processed foods (this was before I found out I couldn't eat gluten). I found out that I had Meniere's Disease.

So I no longer drink caffeine drinks and I watch my sodium intake. Since then I haven't had a vertigo attack ... and believe me, I know what you are going through! It is the worse feeling.

Hope this helps.

Kathy

I have been suffering from dizziness for years before finding out I had celiac,

my M.D. said it is a neurological condition and it's called gluten ataxia. Evan though I AM GLUTEN FREE it never goes away. Life is a roller coaster except sometimes I'D LIKE TO GET OFF THE RIDE!

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      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.
