Can Gluten Cause Ms And Other Autoimmune Disorders?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, after my last post my eyes have been bothering me so much that I don't come online very much.

My original symptoms have changed. It first started off with dry eyes, especially after reading a book. Sometimes it cause a headache. My eyes would also turn read. Now, whenever my eyes look at the computer screen, I get a weird headache and it feels like its coming from behind my eyes and near my ears. After being on the computer too long, veins start popping out on my forehead. Looks kind of scary. My regular doctor sent me to the optometrist and they did an eye exam expecting me to need prescription glasses, but NOPE. My version tested perfect... I was having sensitivity to light until I upped my eye drop dosage...but still have a computer screen problem.... I'm just trying to figure out if this is part of my weak body recovering from gluten (3 months gluten free), if I have some other issue or disease, OR if this is something really simple, like bad lighting while on the computer.......I know that ever since being glutened, my back strains super easily.....my carpel tunnel syndrome is more under control but still flairs up from time to time..

I am supplementing with a multivitamin , magnesium , probiotics and a few more things. I am thinking of contacting some kind of alternative care practitioner..anyone think its worth it? My new regular doc actually knows about gluten sensitivity and the wide range of symptoms..I had to go through like 7 doctors just to find one that didn't think I'm crazy. But even so, shes always pretty busy and doesn't seem to have the time to really sit down with me and figure things out.

Tom...you need to see an ophthalmologist for your eyes. I would suggest being screened for Sjogren's Syndrome too. It's a blood test but it isn't always accurate, like Celiac testing. Your symptoms sound like Sjogren's.....I have it and have many of the same symptoms myself. When the mold counts rise outside, my eyes turn brick red. I look like a hell hound! :P It is just because my eyes are so dry, allergens kill me.

If you are having that much trouble with your eyes, see an eye specialist.
