I am not sure if virtigo is related to food allergies anyone know? I don't suffer everyday and some days are worse than other days. Some days are so bad that I can't get out of bed. Have to hold onto everything or else I bash into everything and fall all over the place. I am permanently bruised. People ask questions like "are you being abused"

Elimination Diet

Has any body got a food elimination diet. When I was first diagnosed I was put on a diet to eliminate most foods and only eat certain non allergic foods. New food were then added so I could identify my triggers.

I am now at the stage where I have eliminated all the triggers however I think I may have "new triggers" which are causing my asthma to flare.

Looking for a basic diet I can start so I can start the process again. There are just to many tests to go through to try and find the cause. Was… read more

anyone watched Rotten episode 2 on Netflicks on allergies?

What is your view on it? I wasn't too impressed as it seemed to only highlight peanut, and as milk is most common allergy didn't understand why it wasn't mentioned .
also the myth that reactions get worse over time with each reaction was a shame.

I liked the segment on the indian restaurant owner who got 6 yrs in jail for a peanut allergy death.

If you haven't seen it have a watch and let me know what you think.
