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.

Personal stories and advice would be highly appreciated- I feel I will get a better understanding of the road ahead if I can learn from what others have done.

Fragrance Reactions

Fragrance Reactions

I have a comment, not a question. I have several allergies and when a new school year begins w/ meetings, I end up leaving the auditorium because many are wearing cologne and/or perfume.

Same with me - to most allergists, I'm not allergic to peanuts, but am sensitive to peanuts. My old allergist (who retired about 10 years ago) said I could include peanuts on my allergy list because… read more

What Is Your Experience With Celery-mugwort Spice Syndrome?

What Is Your Experience With Celery-mugwort Spice Syndrome?

About 20 years ago I had a sudden first-time anaphylactic reaction to something I ate or drank. Allergy testing soon afterward showed pollen sensitivities to birch, sage (aka mugwort), and many grasses, but few food allergies other than mustard (which I tolerate in tiny amounts—good because it hides in everything) and rice (perhaps a false positive?). I was prescribed oral antihistamines (now available over the counter) which I still take daily all year round (alternating every few months so… read more
