Ringing In Ears Anyone Have This Ever And Often?What Was It?

21 posts in this topic

I am trying to follow a elimination diet that i started yesterday,I am trying to recognize on my own what else may be bothering me ( i heard this elimination diet can be more useful than Elisa Allergy tests)I am frustrated already as I do not know what to eat.I am avoiding dairy, gluten, corn, caffeine.....I took the few things that i feel may be a problem not sure.

anyhow I am already destraught as to what to eat during my avoidance diet.I keep getting this ringing in my ears and it could be anything but I just ate some carrots with artichoke, basil dip that I made and the terrible ringing began.

I dont usually eat carrots or artichoke and its healthy and not highly allergy foods so i cant figure out why.....I figured if anything my elimination diet will reveal dairy issues and maybe thats a big sumptom but I just started and I havent even got anywhere yet and carrots and artichoke is setting off the ringing????

any feedback from others who have ever had this

Ringing in the ears is called tinnitus. It can be caused by any number of things, and there are lots of ways it can be fixed. I wouldn't automatically assume that it's the food that made your ears ring. Correlation isn't causation. If my stomach hurts while I'm watching TV, it isn't the TV, you know? So I'd go to the doctor and have your ears checked out. My MIL has tinnitus and it drives her nuts, so I sympathize. I'm trying to get her to go to the doctor, too! Good luck!

The only time I've ever had tinnitus was when my doctor overprescribed a prescription medication. The ringing was unbearable and only stopped after eliminating the meds after several days. It doesn't seem likely that foods would cause the unusual reaction but throughout my 15 years of being gluten free I have had many weird and unusual symptoms that my doctor tells me he has never seen in other patients. Best to have this checked by a professional.

have you recently been taking a lot of analgesics? (aspirin, Tylenol etc?) or any other medications? These can cause tinnitus.

As can noise damage (mine started after an AC/DC concert in 1984 ;) ) Mine got worse recently while I was doing an 8 week gluten challenge. I'm waiting for it to stop screaming in my head, but it doesn't seem to want to go away this time.

I've read here on the forum that there may be some correation between tinnitus and B12 deficiency. I don't know if there is any scientific evidence of that, or just anecdotal.

The American Tinnitus Association is a really good source of info. There's some very interesting research in clinical trials now for Magnestic Resonance as a treatment for tinnitus.

http://www.ata.org

My spouses's tinnitus seems a bit more variable now that he has changed his diet. He has linked gluten mistakes to "screaming T." But he has also had the occasional "bad ear day" when he's very confident that his diet was correct. These days seem to line up with big barometric pressure shifts.

i have ringing in my ears. i did a search before being confirmed for celiac and the main reasons i found were to be loud noises/damage, ms, celiac and medication reactions. i was very afraid i had ms because i also had numbness/tingling. when i found out i had celiac i kinda assumed its a symptom from that. its been 6 weeks and i am still dealing with it. i hope it goes away. an ear, nose and throat doc said he didn't see anything unusual but you should get checked to be sure! :)

I too have the ringing in the ears and asked my natural doc about it Monday. He thinks it is connected to my liver, which has/is congested, and thinks it will clear up when I get straightened out.

I've had tinnitis for years. It doesn't seem to have any correlation with my diet, as I have at some point eliminated most everything. ENT doc couldn't find anything. I've read that it's not unusual not to find a cause.

I've had it in one ear only for over two years now, ever since I had six-week bout of coughing flu :(

I've had a 'whooshing' in my right ear for a couple of years now. I had a bout of vertigo right before it began. It comes and goes, but can be annoying.

Actually, so did I. But my ringing is 24/7 in my right ear. Very rare and short-lived appearances in my left.

I only get the ringing if I eat something which my digestive system has trouble with, but in those cases I know from the intestinal distress what food caused it. I have no doubt that the causes vary from person to person. I've read that certain nutrient deficiencies can also be involved.

Thank you for posting this.

When I get really sick from being glutened, the ringing in my ears increases. I have had ringing as far back as I can remember. Since going gluten-free, it gets much worse when I have been glutened.

For most of my life I've been able to ignore the ringing. However, now when I get a reaction, it gets so loud, it drives me nuts.

I definitely believe there is a connection with gluten.

Gluten aside, I also believe there is a connection with being over-medicated -- the only other times I've had an uncomfortable level of ringing is when I've taken too much aspirin or whatever.

I remember my mother-in-law, after being diagnosed with lung cancer, telling me that her ears rang horribly while on chemo.

I hope others will post here. I know I am probably not alone in having a gluten/increased ringing reaction.

Cane sugar makes my ears ring. Depending on how much I eat, they can ring for days after wards.

Christina - One of the most common causes of ringing in the ears is drugs in the group salicylates. The prototypical example would be aspirin, but the main ingredient in Pepto Bismol, Bismuth subsalicylate, can also cause this annoying side effect. So can a number of prescription drugs commonly used in gut problems, like the 5-ASA anti-inflammatory agents, such as Pentasa. I've personally had ringing in the ears from all these drugs. Susceptibility can vary widely among users. The good news is the ringing goes away when you quit taking the drug, though it can take a day or so to taper off. Are you taking any of these types of drugs?

That is very interesting. Around the holidays, I had a HORRIBLE time with my ears ringing. I was eating gluten-free (or trying to, anyway!), but I was also indulging in more sweets than usual, as well as more processed gluten-free foods.

I had a definite increase in ringing. I was also very sick for a time. I thought it might have been because I had been cross-contaminated or the refined gluten-free foods, but maybe it was the sugar specifically.

I appreciate your post -- I will need to pay more attention to sugar "ringing" in the future.

Augh: I really need to keep a better food jounal than I now do. I HATE journaling, but it would probably help.

Thanks again, ilikepie.

I came to this website searching for any connection between celiac and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Since I started the gluten-free diet a week ago, my long-standing tinnitus appears to be lessening. So odd. Reading these blogs suggests there may be a connection...but perhaps more from a nutritional standpoint than the disease itself...and then again, maybe not? Is there any real research being done on this subject? Thanks.

Many people report it but I don't know about the relationship. My tinnitus didn't start until I was gluten free and dealing with other intolerances. Fortunately, only one ear.

I just found I have anemia due to deficiency of folate and one of the symptoms of that is Ringing in the ears!

I had it WORSE when still consuming gluten--my head buzzed like mad..whooshing, etc....but now, it is just a low tone.

Maybe it will resolve after my folate level goes up?

CANE SUGAR! Cane sugar caused horrible ringing in my ears. And it's not just after I eat some. It could be days later, randomly coming on in the middle of the night...it took a long time to figure out. Now that I eat zero cane sugar, I get the terrible ringing almost instantly after it's ingested. It lasts for days and days and days, even from less than half a teaspoon. The more I eat, the worse and longer it would remain.

Don't believe anyone who tells you this ringing only comes in the form of a disease, and the only cure is medication.

Good luck.

    • First degree relatives of celiacs should be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present since celiac can present at any age. Celiac affects every cell in the body & inflammation is common. My inflammation began in my lower back and the bend of my leg (on the back side of the knees). It progressed to literally everywhere. You name it, back, neck, arms, legs, ankles, hips, wrists, fingers. Excruciating pain as well as swelling. So excruciating that opiates didn't even phase it. I just had to bear it. I would take ice packs & use them until the area was pure D numb. You're never supposed to leave ice on that long but if I hadn't then I would have shot myself. I can not begin to describe the intensity of the pain. The last year before diagnosis, I was sure that within a year, I would be confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of my life. Now, 5.5 years gluten free, I can't tell you the last time I took a Tylenol or any other anti inflammatory. In fact, I'm not on any meds at all. Nothing.
    • Thanks for all that info and the links.  It would be such a relief if I could know what is causing the fever, and that maybe it will go away as I stay gluten-free.  Both my gastro dr and rheum dr said to still stay gluten-free even though I apparently don't have celiac.  They are saying to give it 2-3 months to see how I feel then.  My fever has been down to around 99.9 the past two days, instead of over 100 and 101 like it's been since February.  That is the most exciting thing so far.  My stomach is not as severe or bad, but certainly not great, and I don't feel out of the woods at all concerning that yet.  I still hope to feel a lot better as more time goes by without gluten....I hope.  I seem to get bloat and also discomfort in my ribs more in the evening, even if I ate the same thing at lunch.   I started a food journal.  I guess I need to keep being patient. My rheum dr wants to see the journal in October when I see her again. She said she loves detective work.  It sounds like we all need to become food and symptom detectives when dealing with this.  Now if we could only get an NCIS episode where they investigate how gluten can "murder" our stomachs, and figure out a cure for gluten issues, besides going gluten-free.  It actually hasn't been too bad so far, other than foods that you are iffy or unsure about with all sorts of weird ingredients listed in it.  The internet and this site here helps a lot with some of that.  Luckily there is a whole lot we can still eat, but corn and corn products are an iffy for me too at the moment, and my dr suggested trying to avoid soy, and that xanthan gum, and a few things like that. Only thing that has shown in my bloodwork so far is chronic inflammation that may mean an underlying autoimmune disease.  Ya, I've been hearing "it seems like something autoimmune" for the past few decades.  It'd kind of be helpful to figure out exactly what.  I'm so tired of being tired.  I am sure you all can relate to that.  You just want to wake up and feel good.  
    • HEB organics does not bother me at all. Their plain one has to be boiled before I can drink it so I tend to use it in moderation in cooking...it also has xantham gum which explained that issue. MALK gives me no issues (Local Only Brand I think). Used to drink something called Mooala but could not find it unsweetened after my UC dia.  Almond Breeze is next up but I can only drink about a cup of it before I start getting burping issues, silk bothers me the least but still causes some issues. Silk cashew is alright and I use it all the time with NO issues at all...but I use it in cooking and do not think I have ever used it without boiling it first either in a icecream base or mixing it in a soup, cheese sauce, or adding a bit to eggs for fluff.   Hmm there is one other brand of macadamia milk that dose not bother me and Good Karma Flax milk I have NO issues with....been a good 6 months since I had any though. http://malkorganics.com/products/   https://www.heb.com/product-detail/h-e-b-organics-unsweet-vanilla-almond-milk/1741526 ^ Two that give me the least issues  
    • Oh goodness me so do you guys bother to get histamine level diagnosed or do you just treat it as you did the food diary ? taking note of high histamine time of year/ season and diet into your seasonal food diet? I'm pretty good at rotating foods I've done that longer than I've known about my issues from a nutritional standpoint I rotated which is why until the gluten challenge derailed my immune system entirely. it was challenging enough to do that gluten challenge I am not really up for more testing. I have symptoms of IC, POTS, fibromyalgia, and now you reveal that yes histamine threshold are part of the celiac autoimmune party bag too. how do all branches of medicine not find this group the most intriguing group of people ever? Really?Or Do you just all avoid them and go on your merry way? Ennis - what almond milk can you drink ? the almond milk 3 we tried/ bought prior to making my own (had unlabeled ingredient  fortified and thickeners corn derived added. ) I was shocked to call and discover it had it in (not labeled as it was corn not top 8) it finally explained why the right elbow joint hurt but it was a small enough derived amount of derived  corn not to trigger the Full blast corn intolerance symptoms. For this reason and now the orange juice incident I'm really leery of unidentified corn or corn derivatives or highly processed any additive for they are prevalent in processed land.  
    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
