This risks going off into another subject, but thanks AVR! The tinnitus I can handle, but I was having inner ear problems (so I thought) last year and went to specialists and tests and the whole bit and they found nada. So I cut back on salt, which helped, and eliminated dairy, which helped more, and then (ergh) took out soy and I rarely get the dizzies/sinus issues anymore. I can handle the ringing, but if I ever decide to cut out grains for other reasons, I'll look forward to non-ringy ear and a potential benefit.

Still need nettle tea. To the health food store tonight!

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

Hey Peg-

I've had lifelong inner ear problems. Had significant hearing loss in my left ear by 7 years of age. Had tubes as a child, an inner ear surgery at 18 to replace part of an inner ear bone (this improved my hearing dramatically in the operating room, but the anesthesia caused severe nausea - threw up after the surgery and lost any improvement). By the time I was dx'd with Celiac Disease at 43 my left ear was about 75% deaf (could hear some sound, but not distinguish words, etc).

At about a year gluten-free my hearing improved dramatically! Since then my left ear continues to get stuffy, itchy and ringing that correspond to my other symptom flares caused by food intolerance, but my improved hearing has remained. My daughter has this same condition in only in her right ear - her hearing also improved at nearly two years gluten-free.

I am very interested to see if nettle tea stops the ringing in my silly left ear.

Huh, how did I miss this post? I've been living on the forum while hiding from house work lately... can't believe I missed a post. LOL

Hmm, so ringing ears isn't normal, eh? Huh, well there's another thing to keep an eye on. :rolleyes:

I'll buy my tea tomorrow. ;)

First - far from scientific observation.

I was accidentally glutened. My symptoms have been far less severe than with any past experience.

Can't prove, nor disprove the tea as the reason - but I'm going to keep drinking it.

Last time I got glutened I picked up some digestive enzymes, detox tea, and some activated charcoal. All that seemed to work really well to reduce symptoms, I'll be picking up some nettle tea anyway, but that's a good thing to know! I wonder if there were nettles in that detox tea, I had only looked at the dandelion....

Just wanted to add something else benficial I found that I am relating to the tea. I have tight muscles and connective tissues in my legs and shoulders. My physical therapist keeps telling me I need to find the reason. I get a deep tissue massage 1-2 times a month and every time is painful, to a the point of near tears....not something I look fwd to but understand it is needed. Last Fri was my first massage since drinking the tea.....amazing, seriously amazing, only a little tightness in left calf and right shoulder. I contribute the difference to the tea. No change in my nerve pain or the pain in my low back from my bulging discs but I am not expecting that either.

Hey, take what you can get, right?

Glad your massage was pleasant for once! Aren't they nice when they don't hurt?

Well, I finally got around to trying it. I thought it tasted pretty good. I bought loose tea and made it in my french press.

And this morning I woke up to a psoriasis flare! :angry: Probably salicylate related. This really stinks. Every time I find something good for me, I find out it's bad for me.

Being that today is "National Grouch Day", I must say I am in the spirit for it. GRRRR...

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Here's my unscientific results so far:

I have had 1 cup a day (from tea bags). I was noticing that some stiffness in joints seemed less. Yesterday, I didn't have any. Woke up several times with pain in hips and shoulders. My feet and fingers are stiff this morning.

I'm drinking some right now!

For the past week, I have added 2 tablespoons of tart cherry juice concentrate in addition to the tea. Too early, probably, to tell if that is going to have an effect but the tea seems to ease the stiffness a bit.
