Where Do I Start?

Where Do I Start?

I have recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis and my inflammation levels are not coming down. I am waiting to see a Rheumatologist but my one doctor thinks I might have Fibromyalgia as well.

I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more

I have had the same issue for over 20 years and the only thing making it better is a monthly injection of xolair.

Wheat Allergy - False Positive Chances?

Wheat Allergy - False Positive Chances?

Saw a comment on a group saying something like "after a (severe) allergic reaction ige levels go up a lot and this takes 3 months to clear. If tests are done within 3 months of a reaction specific ige tests and/or skin prick test have a higher chance of false positives"
Is the above true? I can’t find anything supporting this on the internet
Want to check on wheat allergy in particular where an infant 9 months has a 7mm in skin prick (positive control value was 8 for histamine on skin prick… read more

Food Intolerances

Food Intolerances

Hello everyone
I have been suffering for many years the excruciating stomach pain if I eat raw fruits and vegetables such as Avocado, Raspberries, Banana etc. The list keeps on increasing every year and one food item gets added

Is There An App On Android Phones To Help Track Foods And Reactions.

Hi, Is Food Allergy And Food Intolerance The Same Thing?

Hi, Is Food Allergy And Food Intolerance The Same Thing?

I have severe IBS symptoms. Eliminating food that causes reaction for the past 2 months. Notice my nails became extremely brittle, meaning I dont get the necessary nutrients I need.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member said:

Oh how I relate with the severe IBS! Battled it since 1994 and still no relief. I take several vitamins to try to help my body absorb nutrients. I’ve noticed it does help with a bit of energy.
