Has anyone had symptoms of dizziness that seem to be related to pressure or swelling behind the eyes. By noon my eyes feel heavy from pressure and it makes me feel nauseous. Is this from Celiac or some other issue? What do you guys think? :unsure:

I personally have not heard of that with celiac disease. I think you should get to an optomitrist as soon as you can and have it checked out. If you tell them just what you typed here, I am sure they will get you right in. This could be something not related to celiac's. I work for an optomitrist and I know he would want to see you as soon as possible.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I often feel eye pressure, but mine is to to climental change and not due to celiac. Where I live, we go to very humid to very dry weather in a matter of days. I do feel this in the pressure change, in my eyes and sinus.

As always, I am not a doctor, but sometimes dizziness can be an inner ear issue. You may have a small infection that effect both. Eyes and ears can have a common issue.

I experience sinus pressure and pain, fuzzy vision/inability to focus, and positional dizziness (looking down, then moving, like in the kitchen when cooking) when glutened. The vision problem persist a long time after a glutening.

The opthamologist I saw rolled his eyes and sent me on my way when I went in to have it checked out. Now I know that for me, it is a symptom that is consistent with being glutened.

You should have it checked out by a professional, though, especially if you have not experienced these symptoms before.

A lot of celiacs have sinus problems, like chronic sinusitis. This might account for the pressure and dizziness. I think you should see your primary care doctor, and if you have no luck, see a specialist. Good luck,
