How Do I Stop The Craving For Shellfish? I Will Die If I Even Try To Eat It Again. SOMEONE HELP MEEEEEE

How Do I Stop The Craving For Shellfish? I Will Die If I Even Try To Eat It Again. SOMEONE HELP MEEEEEE

I grew up eating all types of shellfish and seafood (fish) Feast of the 7 fish on Christmas eve (Italian tradition). Within the past 6 years the allergy was getting worse but I know i can't eat it but i have been doing nothing but craving it. What do i do?

doing better, but i keep a food diary and always ask when i go out to eat if everything is gluten free and if they have a menu! thank you for asking, today was not so great, i had a very bad reaction to some antibiotics had to take 2 benadryl tabs, and almost went into shock! no more ciproflaxin for me!

wow, that is confusing! i just know that wheat and gluten in any form is very very bad for me, i get very sick and so i just stay away from it! i was told by an allergist that i am definitely allergic to wheat and gluten, when they offered allergic shots i said no way! why would i want to do that when i got so sick i lost almost 50 pounds and almost died! not worth it to me!

I've been tested for celiac but it was clear. more likely i have a lot of different allergies, mostly suffering from constipation as well as a spastic colon. I do believe that Gluten allergy and a gluten intolerance is different as i have been tested for gluten allergy which was positive but were as i have also been tested for gluten intolerance which was negative. could someone share the light on this????

No, you can have a wheat and/or gluten intolerance. I have wheat intolerance but can thankfully handle other forms of gluten in moderation. I just had the biopsy for coeliac and it was clear but I am very reactive to wheat. I can have Durham wheat as well.

yes you are right some allergists are not always a good fit, will have to see what the drs office suggests.
