I have just started eating gluten free (today is my 5th day) and for the past year or so I have had some neurological symptoms that I didn't think anything of until I began to realize that all of my random aches/pains/tingles may have something to do with each other! For me the symptoms are tingling (head/skull, hands, feet), vision migraines, and foggy head.

yep I had brain fog.  I can't count how many times I said, "Physically I'm here, but I feel out of it mentally."  It was like an out of body experience feeling.  the fog has lifted going gluten-free!

Yes, I can relate to all of that!   Ataxia fully describes what I go through.  I can't walk or move my arms without an extreme amount of concentration.  I'm dizzy, foggy headed, can't think straight and get confused.  Alot of times a reaction starts with tingling, either feet and legs or lips and face.  Then I notice I am dropping things and running into things.  Then it progresses to where I can't walk.  I have slurred speech and it is difficul,t if I can get anything out, for anyone to understand me.  Then my vision, my eyes cross sometimes so bad that it hurts. My husband says he can always tell when I start having a reaction from my eyes.  They look "freaky" as he calls it and they dilate. Once the reaction is full blown, all I can do is lay down and wait for it to pass.  Usually I can start to somewhat function after a couple of hours but the full effects can last for a few days.  I must be a very sensitive celiac because if I eat out and they don't cook it separately, different utensils, etc, then I will have a reaction.  Anyone else have that many symptoms?  I didn't used to get the neurological symptoms until about 1 1/2 years ago, (I have been sick for the past 6 years and just recently got diagnosed with celiac) and they did all kinds of testing in the hospital to make sure everything was okay neurological and it was.  I also get bad abdominal pains.  I have all of these same reactions when I eat dairy too, so I am now gluten and dairy free.
