  1. Has the dizziness gotten better after more time. I'm constantly dizzy and only Cf for about 2 weeks. I really hope cutting out gluten gets ride of my dizziness.
  2. How are the vision problems now? Thanks and happy new year
  3. Hello, Sorry for the long post. I'm new to this. I has experienced some lightheadedness at time last summer. It made me nervous as the summer went on, I decided to quick smoking cold turkey September 22. I smoked for 20 years. The quitting went well. About a month later I was more dizzy. The doctor blew it off, along with my heart burn, tingly toes and fingers and intermittent diarrhea. After a second visit he put me on a antibiotic for a "possible ear infection". Then thing became worse: sever dizziness, ear pressure and tinnitus. I also had non stop diarrhea. I should have never takin the amoxiciline. My fiancée sent me to the emergency room, that doctor ordered a MRI, visit to a ENT and neurologist. What happened! I was healthy maybe a lite overweight 2 months before this. We'll my primary doctor did not like me going to the other doctors and stated you are perfectly healthy and maybe had the start of meniers. Neurologist suggested B12 deficiency. Turns out my dad has this and gets shoots. Not the answer for me my B12 is fine. Each appointments is one month away. ENT and audiologist. Dizzy chair test and ear tests revealed nothing. They do think it is inner ear related. I found one guy posting about dizziness much like mine and after six months it turned out to be celiac. I read the Mayo clinic symptoms and it mentioned: Nervous system injury, including numbness and tingling in the feet and hands, and possible problems with balance. I also have some rashes on my butt, elbow and shoulder. The rashes aren't supper bad or supper itchy. My teeth are dis colored which is mention on the university of chicagos web site. I have cut gluten out of my diet. Maybe a bad move before it can get in to a gastro doctor. I did not want to wait because I have been dizzy for 3 months now and want relief ASAP so I can help my family and play more with the kids. After being gluten free I might have some slight improvement in my dizziness, brain fog has improved greatly, heart burn gone, stomach still very burrpy at times. I have lost about 22 lbs since mid October (lucky it have some pounds to spare). I do eat and never go feeling hungry. Does anyone know how long it would take the dizziness to get better? Any thoughts on this story? Thanks and happy new year
