Has anyone ever experienced eye floaters as a reaction to gluten?

There was a thread a while back on this, sorry I can't seem to link to it from my phone. Definitely people with advice.

Can be a warning for retinal detachment among other things.

I've got them. I don't think it has anything to do with Celiac in particular. "Floaters" are bits of detached tissue floating around in your eye. If they suddenly show up, or get worse, you should see a doctor/optometrist as soon as you can, since it could be a sign of something more serious like a detached retina.

I might notice them more when I've been glutened, but then again my vision is generally less focused when I've been glutened.

It is also linked to uveitis (sp?) which can be potentially serious. Definitely a good idea to get it checked if you noticed a change.

My eye exam a couple weeks ago, my eyes has actually gotten better for the first time since I was a kid. That's not floaters though. I've had floaters for as long as I can remember, same place, same shape.

My opthalmologist (of many years) never connected gluten to my floaters either.

I have a ton of eye floaters and issues with my eyes. I don't know what could cause it really but I have read other people on this forum say they have floaters and I have suspicions and it is my opinion that celiac maybe able to cause it. It is an autoimmune disease and effects every person differently. Gluten causes the autoimmune response. Now that I have been gluten and dairy free, I can count on one hand how many floaters I have had. Before I would see them several times a day. It is only my opinion and I am no doctor, but I feel there is a connection.

If followed by headache, they could also be migraine auras.

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
