Vertigo After Going Gluten Free?
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free for a little over a year now, and I've noticed something that has been occurring the past couple months. Anytime I ride various amusement park rides or even ride an elevator, I get an odd, dizzy feeling. It seems like my field of vision is stretching and moving up and down. Everything seems so slow, and my brain gets foggy, like I cannot think or understand what's going on at that moment.

Before I went gluten free, I've never had problems with dizziness whatsoever. Has anyone else noticed this? Should I talk to my doctor?

It might be worth talking to a doctor. Maybe you have something going on with your inner ear. I have not had this happen since going gluten free. I can't imagine what might be causing it.

I've been in the same boat. My vertigo started after starting the diet, and I've been gluten free for 3 years. I've been to different doctors, had different tests run and everything has been "normal". <_< So, I have no idea what's causing it. I do sometimes feel like my ears are draining when my allergies are acting up, so that might be part of the problem.

It probably wouldn't hurt getting an appointment with an ENT to check your ears out. A lot of the time, that's where that type of dizziness stems from. My primary care doc also had me see a neurologist just in case it was something more serious, but they didn't find anything to be concerned about.

I don't get that exactly, but pre gluten-free life, I never had this issue, I get up at a normal speed, and I white out, my vision kind of get's flash-banged, it's brief and hardly of concern but I find it odd I get so lightheaded from just sitting and standing up at what used to be normal speeds o.O

It's likely Benign Positional Vertigo. An ENT specialist can confirm it for you. Mine went away after going gluten-free. When you are experiencing it, sitting at the side of your bed and flipping yourself back and forth sideways will induce it, but will also cause your ear to settle down and it will diminish. I also find it is important to keep your ears dry. Make sure you dry them well after showering.

Also, in regards to the later post about dizziness with standing up. Usually that is due to dehydration and therefore your B/P drops a bit when you stand up. Getting drinking some hydrating fluids.

Good luck sorting out the dizziness.

Thanks for the replies! I have always had problems with my ears and build up. I'll follow some of your suggestions!
