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.

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!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
