;) Ok, maybe you can define jumpy eyes...

I'm thinking if it's sorta wonky eyesight, I'm in. Some days my eyes seem to cross...not really of course but I'm not sure if my astigmatism becomes an issue or what. Other days, things are fine. It seems worse when I'm tired or if I have grumpy sinuses. It sorta like my eyes won't work together ???

I have had alot of vision problems.....double vision, vertigo, double vision and depth perception issues which have all left on a gluten-free diet and supplementing. The jumpy eyes don't follow a line whether it is reading or whatever. If I read I may have to go back 2 & 3 times and read the same line. I am a piano instructor who is constantly looking at lines and have actually let one student go because I could not keep up with all the notations in the music. I have made so many simple mistakes identifying the wrong notes only to realize my students are correct. Then I feel terrible for correting them when all along they were right but it's because my eyes are doing crazy things.

I believe the jumpy eyes are one of the symptoms of gluten ataxia. I have a friend who shows all of the symptoms of this, from difficulty walking, slurred speech, and jumpy eyes. He has been to see several doctors and has had multiple MRI's, CT scans, and neurological tests. They say they don't know WHAT it is. When I discovered what I did about the gluten ataxia and showed him, he went into denial and refuses to go back to the doctor to be tested. He's risking permanent damage, and quite literally risking his very life. :(

Here is a brief excerpt of an article about it. Click on the link to read the rest.

Gluten Ataxia

Ataxia is the most common neuropathy symptom associated with gluten allergy, according to the 2002 "Journal of Neurology, Neurosugery and Psychiatry." It is known as gluten ataxia. Ataxia is loss of muscle coordination in order to perform voluntary tasks such as picking up a book or walking. Symptoms of ataxia my involve difficulty swallowing, walking, slurred speech and eye movement changes.

So what did you do? The article only talks about going on a gluten-free diet. With time these issues are supposed to go away on the diet. The issues listed are the ones I have not been able to make better so far with my diet and supplements. I have been gluten-free since April.

AVR, I don't have this problem myself. But because my friend does, I've read a lot about it. It is the slowest to heal, and for some it never completely goes away, although it does get better. If you google it, you will find a lot of info. Or better yet, do a search on this site. There are several members who have neurological problems caused by gluten. They can help you.

Yes, I had jumpy eye, dry eye and keratoconus . My jumpy eye and dry eye are better with a gluten-free diet and vitamins, but keratoconus is a life long condition. In some studies, keratoconus is linked to/ a complication of celiac disease.

I've got it. When I'm trying to read and I'm feeling tired or stressed that's when it starts, my eyes will jump off the line that I'm reading or while I'm drawing and staring at one spot real close they will bounce off and I loose my pace. It's annoying, but it's still bothering me a bit and I've been on a gluten free diet for years. Although, it seems when I get a small gluten episode it does show up again. Latley I've found that my chapsticks are causing small gluten episodes, so the jumpy eyes are back today. I didn't think anyone else had this, thought I was going mad or something. lol Yhea I'm not alone :D

Anyway, stress and being tired area a trigger for me, especially when I'm slouching in my chair. Those are the only things I know that's going on when it happens.

Hope this helps.

I have vertigo and double vision and I had severe migraines. I had a mass and they removed it. It was Fibrodysplasia. The double vision and vertigo are still there so I need to go back to my optometrist. Good luck. We're all pulling for each other. That's what's so special about this forum.

Loey

I have MS and Celiacs and have been on a gluten free, dairy free diet for over 4 years now and to my dismay none of my ms symptoms have cleared up. :( All my gastro symptoms are better and I can sure tell when I have has something with gluten in it. I have all the eye problems and the neuropathy but such is life with ms.
