Ringing In Ears Anyone Have This Ever And Often?What Was It?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am trying to follow a elimination diet that i started yesterday,I am trying to recognize on my own what else may be bothering me ( i heard this elimination diet can be more useful than Elisa Allergy tests)I am frustrated already as I do not know what to eat.I am avoiding dairy, gluten, corn, caffeine.....I took the few things that i feel may be a problem not sure.

anyhow I am already destraught as to what to eat during my avoidance diet.I keep getting this ringing in my ears and it could be anything but I just ate some carrots with artichoke, basil dip that I made and the terrible ringing began.

I dont usually eat carrots or artichoke and its healthy and not highly allergy foods so i cant figure out why.....I figured if anything my elimination diet will reveal dairy issues and maybe thats a big sumptom but I just started and I havent even got anywhere yet and carrots and artichoke is setting off the ringing????

any feedback from others who have ever had this

Ringing in the ears is called tinnitus. It can be caused by any number of things, and there are lots of ways it can be fixed. I wouldn't automatically assume that it's the food that made your ears ring. Correlation isn't causation. If my stomach hurts while I'm watching TV, it isn't the TV, you know? So I'd go to the doctor and have your ears checked out. My MIL has tinnitus and it drives her nuts, so I sympathize. I'm trying to get her to go to the doctor, too! Good luck!

The only time I've ever had tinnitus was when my doctor overprescribed a prescription medication. The ringing was unbearable and only stopped after eliminating the meds after several days. It doesn't seem likely that foods would cause the unusual reaction but throughout my 15 years of being gluten free I have had many weird and unusual symptoms that my doctor tells me he has never seen in other patients. Best to have this checked by a professional.

have you recently been taking a lot of analgesics? (aspirin, Tylenol etc?) or any other medications? These can cause tinnitus.

As can noise damage (mine started after an AC/DC concert in 1984 ;) ) Mine got worse recently while I was doing an 8 week gluten challenge. I'm waiting for it to stop screaming in my head, but it doesn't seem to want to go away this time.

I've read here on the forum that there may be some correation between tinnitus and B12 deficiency. I don't know if there is any scientific evidence of that, or just anecdotal.

The American Tinnitus Association is a really good source of info. There's some very interesting research in clinical trials now for Magnestic Resonance as a treatment for tinnitus.

http://www.ata.org

My spouses's tinnitus seems a bit more variable now that he has changed his diet. He has linked gluten mistakes to "screaming T." But he has also had the occasional "bad ear day" when he's very confident that his diet was correct. These days seem to line up with big barometric pressure shifts.

i have ringing in my ears. i did a search before being confirmed for celiac and the main reasons i found were to be loud noises/damage, ms, celiac and medication reactions. i was very afraid i had ms because i also had numbness/tingling. when i found out i had celiac i kinda assumed its a symptom from that. its been 6 weeks and i am still dealing with it. i hope it goes away. an ear, nose and throat doc said he didn't see anything unusual but you should get checked to be sure! :)

I too have the ringing in the ears and asked my natural doc about it Monday. He thinks it is connected to my liver, which has/is congested, and thinks it will clear up when I get straightened out.

I've had tinnitis for years. It doesn't seem to have any correlation with my diet, as I have at some point eliminated most everything. ENT doc couldn't find anything. I've read that it's not unusual not to find a cause.

I've had it in one ear only for over two years now, ever since I had six-week bout of coughing flu :(

I've had a 'whooshing' in my right ear for a couple of years now. I had a bout of vertigo right before it began. It comes and goes, but can be annoying.

Actually, so did I. But my ringing is 24/7 in my right ear. Very rare and short-lived appearances in my left.

I only get the ringing if I eat something which my digestive system has trouble with, but in those cases I know from the intestinal distress what food caused it. I have no doubt that the causes vary from person to person. I've read that certain nutrient deficiencies can also be involved.

Thank you for posting this.

When I get really sick from being glutened, the ringing in my ears increases. I have had ringing as far back as I can remember. Since going gluten-free, it gets much worse when I have been glutened.

For most of my life I've been able to ignore the ringing. However, now when I get a reaction, it gets so loud, it drives me nuts.

I definitely believe there is a connection with gluten.

Gluten aside, I also believe there is a connection with being over-medicated -- the only other times I've had an uncomfortable level of ringing is when I've taken too much aspirin or whatever.

I remember my mother-in-law, after being diagnosed with lung cancer, telling me that her ears rang horribly while on chemo.

I hope others will post here. I know I am probably not alone in having a gluten/increased ringing reaction.

Cane sugar makes my ears ring. Depending on how much I eat, they can ring for days after wards.

Christina - One of the most common causes of ringing in the ears is drugs in the group salicylates. The prototypical example would be aspirin, but the main ingredient in Pepto Bismol, Bismuth subsalicylate, can also cause this annoying side effect. So can a number of prescription drugs commonly used in gut problems, like the 5-ASA anti-inflammatory agents, such as Pentasa. I've personally had ringing in the ears from all these drugs. Susceptibility can vary widely among users. The good news is the ringing goes away when you quit taking the drug, though it can take a day or so to taper off. Are you taking any of these types of drugs?

That is very interesting. Around the holidays, I had a HORRIBLE time with my ears ringing. I was eating gluten-free (or trying to, anyway!), but I was also indulging in more sweets than usual, as well as more processed gluten-free foods.

I had a definite increase in ringing. I was also very sick for a time. I thought it might have been because I had been cross-contaminated or the refined gluten-free foods, but maybe it was the sugar specifically.

I appreciate your post -- I will need to pay more attention to sugar "ringing" in the future.

Augh: I really need to keep a better food jounal than I now do. I HATE journaling, but it would probably help.

Thanks again, ilikepie.

I came to this website searching for any connection between celiac and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Since I started the gluten-free diet a week ago, my long-standing tinnitus appears to be lessening. So odd. Reading these blogs suggests there may be a connection...but perhaps more from a nutritional standpoint than the disease itself...and then again, maybe not? Is there any real research being done on this subject? Thanks.

Many people report it but I don't know about the relationship. My tinnitus didn't start until I was gluten free and dealing with other intolerances. Fortunately, only one ear.

I just found I have anemia due to deficiency of folate and one of the symptoms of that is Ringing in the ears!

I had it WORSE when still consuming gluten--my head buzzed like mad..whooshing, etc....but now, it is just a low tone.

Maybe it will resolve after my folate level goes up?

CANE SUGAR! Cane sugar caused horrible ringing in my ears. And it's not just after I eat some. It could be days later, randomly coming on in the middle of the night...it took a long time to figure out. Now that I eat zero cane sugar, I get the terrible ringing almost instantly after it's ingested. It lasts for days and days and days, even from less than half a teaspoon. The more I eat, the worse and longer it would remain.

Don't believe anyone who tells you this ringing only comes in the form of a disease, and the only cure is medication.

Good luck.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    • OK good to know. Thanks for the tip
    • This is an old thread but I just need to get this out of my system! I am just so fed up with how every caregiver has been dealing with me case. My enzymes have been abnormal and my doc continuously asks me if I'm binge drinking - I literally haven't had a sip of alcohol in 2 years. Never been a heavy drinker.  She also tells me that all of my troubling neurological symptoms - sensory hypersensitivity, tinnitus, jaw/pain, headaches, fatigue, teeth grinding, nightmares, and EPILEPSY are "all in my head." ??? When my GI symptoms first started, she tried pushing acid reflux medications on me, even though Ive never dealt with heartburn. She was confused and aggressively asked, "Then what do you want!???"... um, to figure out the root of my issues? Some diagnostics? Gosh... When I told her my symptoms had decreased on a low gluten diet and I was interested in being tested for celiac, she asked me "why bother? if you're feeling better, just eat less gluten" - not understanding the value of a formal diagnosis.   I just wish I had some other disease that was more medically recognized and understood. Its so demeaning, and I try to see my doctors as little as possible now. I do my own research on PubMED and google scholar. And I don't even think I've had it the worst- I'm totally appalled by all of the crap I've read on this thread. Anyways, I'm done ranting.
    • Has your Dr mention Microscopic Colitis at all.  You mentioned taking PPI's.  I took them for over a year - 2 morning and 2 night.  I think that's how I ended up with Microscopic Colitis.  I don't think I have Celiac disease but do think I am very sensitive to gluten.  My GI dr. told me to eat whatever I want , but have learned from research, partly from microscopiccolitis.org that almost everyone with MC is sensitive to gluten and most to dairy and some to soy.  I know some on this site don't agree with some of what is said on that site, but they are really good people who want to help.  Just said all that to say, maybe you should ask your GI if you could have MC.  Hope you get it all figured out.  I know the frustration.  It can take over your life.
    • Yeah their shreds raw are nasty but melted in recipes they are decent, they make 2 different shreds a cutting board super stretchy version and a plain, they also sell that mac and cheese sauce by itself for use in other recipes. https://store.veganessentials.com/daiya-deluxe-cheeze-sauces-p5079.aspx The company makes a decent cream cheese and cheese cake also if you can stomach the xantham gum.

      I am going to copy and paste something from another thread thread and link you a list of alternatives. " Violife...makes vegan Feta...I have been dying to try their cheeses and hear good reviews. They also make other cheeses.
      https://store.veganessentials.com/just-like-feta-by-violife-p5342.aspx
      Kite Hill makes great Ricotta, the truffle cheese from them....yeah you will eat the whole thing in one sitting stuff is addictive,  decent cream cheese if you can stomach xantham gum (only one they have that has it).
      
      Miyoko Creamery makes great mozzarella and even a smoked version I hear they make great cream cheese and wheels also but I have not gotten any. Leaf Cuisines makes the best smoked gouda, and a strong garlic and herb cheese

      Tree line Scallion is glorious, and their garlic and herb is milder then Leaf cuisines but decent flavor...the peppered is meh.

      Daiya Blocks flavor wise are better then the shreds, the jalapeno Havarti is one my my dads favorites and he loves their cheddar...again xantham gum so not for me. Their cream cheese is decent but noticeable artificial. Their shreds come in 2 formulations a high melt version (cutting block) and standard I they taste better cooked into recieps over raw.
      Daiya recently started offering cheese sauces...like the stuff they used to sell with their mac&cheese but just the sauce.

      Lissanatti makes the best "raw" shreds for cheddar and mozz.

      Parma makes great Parmesan sub...the better then bacon one is SUPER addicting.

      I heard good reviews on so delicious cheese....but corn makes makes me not even able to do a chew and spit taste without an allergic reaction.

      I recently found a creamery you can contact about getting cheeses...I found their sauce on a site and got it.....great Alfredo sauce.

        Dairy Free cheese products  NOTE CHECK FOR GLUTEN FREE ON THEM
      https://store.veganessentials.com/cheese-alternatives-c6.aspx

      Other gluten free options for everything else  
    • Dairy is dairy on a elimination diet, your trying to void all the proteins, lactose, whey, casein, and the enzymes, hormones, pus, etc that could be setting off issues. I would even say wait at first on the dairy free alts. IF anything go with the fewest ingredients ones without starches or gums like the plain kite hills, tree line, leaf cuisines and miyoko. And completely sideline the crazy ones like daiya, or the blends of more then 2-4 ingredients.
