Vertigo, Ataxia After gluten-free
Posted 02 March 2012 - 01:06 AM
Just this past week, I've had vertigo a couple of times after sitting down/sitting up. I am also a college student and just during this past week have I noticed a couple times where I feel very uncoordinated and it feels as if my body is wobbly and with each step I have to additionally reassure myself to keep myself "up straight" so as not to fall over (left or right).
I had vertigo and ataxia a couple times before going gluten-free, but they were sporadic and few (maybe twice a month for vertigo but nearly daily for weird unbalanced walking).
Why do I still feel like I can't walk a staight line? I actually can walk a straight line but I have to focus on not teetering to the right or left.
What about the vertigo? Could it just be from vitamin deficiencies since going gluten-free? I think I'm eating a pretty balanced diet still.

Double check to make sure there's nothing that's sneaking into your diet.

Also, I found I was getting vertigo from other foods......high fructose, the various gums like xanthan, carageenan so I had to stay away from all of them for 8 months while my system repaired. I can eat them now but I am still very careful.
Hope that helps!
