CyclingLady, czy ty jest Polskie? Wow, that is too funny! Do you make golabki also? I never developed the knack for making good golabki somehow, but my mom makes them awesome. Too bad we don't have any good substitute for pierogi --- I don't think anyone is ever going to make a gluten-free dough that is that thin and stretchy that still holds together.
I do make a mean wild mushroom soup, from wild mushrooms that I gather and dry here in Alaska. I used to make a pretty damned good makowiec (which all the members of the local Polish Club used to rely on and enjoy), but sadly no longer, as that was made of course with a gluten dough. I also do zupa szczawiowa from szczaw that I grow myself.
While in retrospect it is quite obvious that I had GI symptoms of celiac disease for most of my life (I am 56 years old now), it was only after getting a bread machine in 2012 that I started to get the dermatitis herpetiformis. Up until then, I was eating whole-wheat pasta, and wheat-containing breakfast cereals, but only rarely ever ate bread (I was picky, and only liked artisanal bread). And then, I was suddenly eating bread four or five days a week! And not only bread, but whole wheat bread, to which to improve the texture I was adding EXTRA GLUTEN! And then I would wonder why my symptoms would abate (but not disappear completely) in the summers --- because in the summer, I was almost never making bread.
Interestingly, a few years ago, I read in an LDS ("Mormon") Church publication that they had modified their longstanding advice for their members to stockpile large amounts of wheat before any other food, due to the recognition that suddenly relying on wheat for one's daily diet, when one had not done so before, "could lead to certain food-related sensitivities and unexpected health problems".
I know this is an older post but I am glad that I found this thread in an internet search. I am finally realizing that my months of vertigo are related to eating white rice hot cereal each morning. I even went to a vertigo specialist who did Epley Maneuvers which did not help.
When I took a break by eating grain-free and then resumed by eating a bowl of white rice hot cereal (hey, it’s comfort food for me), I had a bad spell of dizziness. The next day (still not making the connection), I ate a snack of black rice crackers. Awful vertigo. Found out this morning that individuals w/ sensitivity to oats and even gluten-free oats are very likely going to have issues with black rice due to the special ‘bran” shared by black rice and oats. So the answer for me is yes, rice can cause dizziness or vertigo.
You just need to be patient and avoid gluten at all costs. Chances are you are still dealing with the consequences of your recent gluten exposure.
Please keep researching celiac disease and how to avoid gluten. Knowledge is your best defense.
No, never dizziness or facial numbness for me, but everyone is different.
