Do Your Ears Ring?

Recommended Posts

My ears ring really bad when I'm gutened. Anyone else have this problem? Or is this unrelated? It is rather anoying at times.


Rheumatic fever at age 5 and again at age 6. Antibiotics for 6 years to prevent strep throat.

Anemia, Mono, Hepititis, Pernicious Anemia, Enlarged Heart, Osteopenia, Vitamin D deficiency, Ataxia, Digestive issues, reactive hypoglycemia, and on and on and on!

Following the SCD diet after gluten free didn't solve symptoms. Much better and getting back my life!

Research tinnitus. I have tinnitus and I truly do not think it is related to my celiac's. The ringing has been terrible for the last 4 months and I have not been glutened. The "eye" doctor I work for tells me that in the winter months when we have the heat going, the air inside is too dry and it dries out the mucous membranes in our bodies, giving us ringing in the ears and dry eyes. Not sure if he is correct, but it's possible. I also started taking Celexa about the same time the ringing started getting worse--could be that. I stopped taking my 81mg low dose aspirin and the ringing calmed for a time, yet this week, it has been back with a vegence. I have had tinnitus all my life, yet never like the last few months.

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!

My dad has tinnitus. He has also gone nearly 100% deaf. But his is most likely from to many blows to the head. LOL! Ok all kidding aside, he grew up in a very rough neighborhood in Brooklyn and even if he was looking for it he would end up in fights all the time. He had his head cracked open a couple times and later in his teens started training to be a boxer; which is what he was going to do until his brother told him he would kill him if he dropped out of high school to become a boxer. Hehe!!

So although we don't know 100% the doctors (and us) pretty much speculate that both his tinnitus and hearing loss are from all of that.

Like Deb said, look into the tinnitus. You never know, but I doubt it is celiac related.

I have ringing ears ... it's from my Lyme Disease though, I have never seen it related to celiac.

If what Deb's doctor said is true, I'd bet you're getting dehydrated when you get glutened. I know I get dehydrated very easily when glutened.

I've had it my whole life as near as I can remember. I had no idea until a few years ago when I read something about it and realized I had it. It was just there as far back as I can remember. The sound changes, but gluten doesn't seem to affect it one way or another. I'm so accustsom to the ringing it's background noise to me. I suppose if it ever stopped THAT I would notice.
