How Long Does Dizziness Last If It's Cc?

Recommended Posts

Guest thatchickali

I've seen my doctor for my dizziness that comes and goes and I've had all the tests. So right now we think it's either anxiety symptoms, or CC from gluten. I just don't know right now because I have stress that I'm dealing with (classes start tomorrow) but I've been so careful fixing my food and I've been sticking to only foods that are made to be gluten-free (not mainstream grocery store foods).

Anyway, the question is, how long does the dizziness last if I am getting glutened?

Whoa, I just saw your message about the Dizziness. I never equated dizziness with Celiac disease, but I am newly diagnosed so am still learning a lot about this.

However for months I have had off and on unexplained dizziness too. Some days its worse than others. I thought it was just due to old age, but perhaps not.

I sure would like to learn more about this. And pardon me for being old fashioned but what do you mean by "CC"? Is that short for Celiac something or other?

Thanks

It's Cross- Contamination. I think people use it a lot on the site.

I'm only 19 with it, so I don't think mine is old age, although I do feel a lot older than my friends out here at college....not able to eat pizza and fast food and all.

Hope your dizziness is better!

My dizzyness from cross contamination (CC) or glutening myself usually lasts about a week. I will have it every time I stand up in the beginning and as the week progresses it gets less and less. It drove me nuts in the beginning. I thought I was having inner ear problems or like you was just getting old. But after I read about it on this web site I started noticing it came for me with an itch as well. Then the pain in my joints and muscles would get worse and I started looking to see what I had done wrong and found I was glutening myself.

27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

:o I'm so glad that I stumbled across this post!! I've had this problem for a long time and it's been driving me nuts. I didn't and think about connecting it to my Celiac. I guess I must be getting glutened somehow and I will have to figure out how. Thanks guys! :)

When I get CC my first reaction is vertigo. I have had vertigo for over 12 years. It has nearly disappeared gluten-free (and grain free). But if I get some, I get the vertigo. For me it only lasts a couple of days followed by a migraine. Thankfully it has only happened twice in the past 5+ months. Before gluten-free I would have migraines 2 times a month or more.

So this is a MAJOR improvement for me. :)

Hang on.....it gets better.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

I have what I Think is something called sycope happening now. I just start to fall over in my chair and then snap back aware. I haven't figured out any certain relation to dizzynesss and glutening time frames. Could be you have an inner ear thing going on also. Allergies can do that and make a person dizzy.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Yeah, I couldn't stand up straight all last week, definitely an inner ear thing for me, I was NOT Cc'd. You might look into getting adjusted by a chiropractor, that always fixes my problem.

Me too! Whenever I get CC I get really dizzy, tired, and start losing feeling in my hands and feet. Then I get a migraine, etc....

I've learned to push through the symptoms (if it's only trace amounts of CC), but I still feel awful for days after.

Oh sure! That's a celiac thing. I get dizzyness, loss of balance, ringing in the ears, extreme irritability, disorentation,numbness and neuropathry in the extremities, and bone and joint pain all accompanied by extreme sleepiness and exhaustion. But you can't lay down cause it makes it worse. AAAUUGGHH!!!

My reations always get better in sequence. First I feel better mentally ( less sort of creeped out feeling or basic anxiety) then I know the dizzyness and and balance problem goes. Numbness next, but the joint pain lasts longer. Usually 24 hours or so, but the disorentation ( I call it the Jessica Simpson complex) and ringing in the head can go on for days with any food at all stirring things up and I have to be really careful eating too much at a time.

I'm losing too much weight and worry about being malnourished. I take good vitamins and calcium too because after a bad reaction I have to eat nearly nothing for a few days so as not to "stir things up again" I've been told that when this kind of thing happens some Celiacs take laxative to clear out whatever caused the darned crap in the first place cause it can take a few days to natually void it out. I haven't tried that yet. It seems so drastic! But I almost did that this weekend. My reaction ruined my weekend totally. I'm going to ask my doc about the laxative thing to make sure it's OK occasionally before I do that.


I'm new, and it's all been so freakin' much.
