  1. Does Anyone Get Virtigo?

    Yes, yes, Meniere's disease. Inner ear disorder, hearing loss, vertigo etc. I had it terribly until I stopped eating gluten and unless I have an accidental hit, I am fine. Took 6 years to figure it out but not before I was poisoning the crap out of myself with the healthiest whole wheat grain diet ever!!! So, Gluten free bread is far from healthy but atleast now I am not sick. I just don't eat as much bread. God luck.
  2. Gluten And Vertigo

    I was so happy to finally find people talking about vertigo and gluten. I have Meniere's disease, no two ways about it. I have the constant ringing, onset in my early thirties, dizzy spells, hearing loss in my right ear, blah, blah, blah... It was crippling, and when I was attempting to make myself healthy, no salt, no caffeine and only WHOLE GRAINS (wheat) I was getting worse and worse - killing myself. I was probably always gluten intolerant, suffering from eczema and asthma. Apparently, once you hit a certain age, your immune system just can;t fight it any more, in my case the gluten poisoning and it started to react. I tried everything for my Meniere's syndrome. Nothing worked and when the doctor suggested surgery, I lost it. I was seeing a shrink because I started to believe it was stress related panic attacks. One major symptom of gluten poisoning is definitely anxiety. Anyhow, it was she who suggested to go gluten free and I WAS CURED, - like the next day... I was good for 7 months and I suppose I had a few relapses because my now clean body was so sensitive that when I would get accidentally glutened by chocolate, malt sweeteners, pre-packaged ground pepper, whatever, I would react. Now it barely happens. Sometimes maybe light headed and I know it's happened. Amazing, when I told my ENT doctor, he was basically uninterested! I couldn't believe he wouldn't want to share with his other patients. I've tried to spread the word, but people are clearly not as sick and desperate as I was.
