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. A lot of people have told me that I need to try and figure out if something I am eating is causing the inflammation. How do I do the elimination diet? Where do I start?

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

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

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

On top I have egg, honey and pine nut allergy.

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

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

Trying to pinpoint what reaction is caused by each thing. We don't have an affirmative diagnosis yet. At least looking at dairy, but could be others as well.

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.

Your allergies are similar to mine. Do you go to restaurants/pubs and watch others eat. The thought of not eating out again is depressing
