I've been gluten free for a little over a year now, and I've noticed something that has been occurring the past couple months. Anytime I ride various amusement park rides or even ride an elevator, I get an odd, dizzy feeling. It seems like my field of vision is stretching and moving up and down. Everything seems so slow, and my brain gets foggy, like I cannot think or understand what's going on at that moment.
Before I went gluten free, I've never had problems with dizziness whatsoever. Has anyone else noticed this? Should I talk to my doctor?
It's likely Benign Positional Vertigo. An ENT specialist can confirm it for you. Mine went away after going gluten-free. When you are experiencing it, sitting at the side of your bed and flipping yourself back and forth sideways will induce it, but will also cause your ear to settle down and it will diminish. I also find it is important to keep your ears dry. Make sure you dry them well after showering.
Also, in regards to the later post about dizziness with standing up. Usually that is due to dehydration and therefore your B/P drops a bit when you stand up. Getting drinking some hydrating fluids.
Good luck sorting out the dizziness.
