Is constantly being dizzy and tired normal symptoms associated with celiac disease. I have been gluten free for a couple months and I always have tired eyes in the early afternoon, lightheaded and dizzy. I can hardly even focus while doing computer work. I cant tell if it is being caused by stress from my new job, anxiety from not feeling good for so long, or something actually seriously wrong. I dont have anemia or any malabsorption issues. What's going on..... is my dizziness caused by my tired eyes, or vice versa?

I also have felt light-headed and dizzy increasingly lately. I've been gluten-free for 7 months and have not recently changed my diet/lifestyle etc. Don't notice a distinct pattern of it happening only when I'm really hungry (I'm frequently REALLY hungry) and I know I'm eating enough food. It tends to happen when I stand up from my desk at work - but feels different from the starry eyed thing I get sometimes from blood pressure drop with change in position. Hmmm? Could this be an anemia type of thing? I feel like I'm adequately hydrated but maybe not??

I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes I even have it when I close my eyes. I just went gluten-free recently and I notice it more now - maybe because I feel better everywhere else?

I'm going to chime it as well. I've gotten so dizzy that i have to close my eyes sometimes to stop the room from spinning. I was thinking that it might be allergies here. but if you all are getting this and being newly gluten-free, maybe it's a symptom of being gluten-free? I was gonig to ask my doc in April when i go to my follow up.

I went through a tired and a dizzy period and all I can say is that they eventually passed. For the tiredness I drank Ensure (Watch....Chocolate Malt Flavor has gluten) and tried to get as much sleep as possible. As for the dizzy I just had to fight through it.

Best of Luck

I'm curious as to what you mean by "tired eyes"? One of my sisters was having trouble keeping her eye lids open after say three in the afternoon. She wasn't necessarily exhausted or sleepy, but just unable to keep her eye lids open. About two years ago her doctor diagnosed a type of auto immune syndrom that causes that. I thought that was somewhat odd at the time, but now, having been diagnosed with Celiac I don't find it odd at all. :rolleyes:
