Hi everyone! I have been going through weird things since February, which doesn't sound long but it is a long time if you don't feel good :ph34r:

I was DX'd with positional vertigo, and that was all fine and dandy, but then I noticed my legs felt weak and I have this freaky rash on my elbow that burns like the dickens. I was tested ten years ago for MS and that all came back fine. That was for a vision problem.

With this positional vertigo, I became VERY conscious of everything I do. Then I noticed that what was making me really dizzy and weak and icky every morning was the powered creamer I was putting in my coffee B) and then I decided, to help out my indigestion and constant heartburn, I would start eating everything whole wheat or whole grain (for the fiber) and since then, I have turned into a sick, weak version of my former self. :huh:

So I went online and researched gluten allergy. why, I don't know, all I know about gluten is that I see it in stores - gluten free - and I have thought, in passing, "wonder what that's all about". But I have been praying and I asked God to give me some direction or notions or ideas on why I feel this way. Next thing I know, I'm looking up gluten allergies :o

I've been on this message board for hours and I want everyone who reads this to know how helpful this is. I have some food questions, but I'll hold those until we "meet" - I don't want to come lamblastin' in here! :P

Hi & Welcome!

If all my "issues" are connected, then I probably started to be symptomatic @ 5 years ago when i was diagnosed with Migraines & Meniers. Then I was re-diagnosed as "just" having Vestibular Migraines.

Around the same time, I was 1st urged to ditch wheat & dairy from my diet due to gut bloating.

I FELT MUCH BETTER - but after 6 months slowly those foods crept back into my diet.

After a very "toxic" 2 year work situation, last spring my body finally shut down and my GP started looking at a number of disorders, eventually landing on Celiac. While I have tested negative for both the blood titers & during my endoscopy, he and my Gastro both agree that I should continue to eliminate them from my diet as much as possible because when they are out of my system, I am healthier. (I had already been cutting Wheat from my diet before the testing which may have lead to false negatives, or maybe I am "lucky" in that I only have a related issue.)

The vertigo was a life changing issue for me - I had been a ski instructor, and I have had to all but give up skiing. The better I am at keeping to the gluten-free/CF/SF (i have a LOT of allergies) diet, the less I experience the vertigo.

I also only had a few colds and a minor sinus infection this year, where as I typically catch everything.

Good luck!
