Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! I was diagnosed with Fibro around 3 years ago. Last year at this time I was diagnosed with Food Allergies. We found out that I am allergic to eggs, dairy, soy, corn and wheat. Needless to say I have had a lot of trouble finding others with such as vast amount of food allergies for support. It seems like it would be easy with the internet and all, but as an adult it is not. Most sites are for parents of children. Since I was diagnosed it really bothered me to think I am 31 and not only have to deal with Fibro, but also food allergies. It has been a great struggle, but I am trying to deal. I really want to know if this is just another symptom of the Fibro since I never had trouble when I was younger so….
My BIG Question is: How many people out there have Fibro and Food Allergies or Food Sensitivities??
Not only food allergies, but to many other things too. Who develops and peanut/ legume allergy at 60 years old? Me! The allergist was shocked! Over the years I have had allergic reactions to formerly tolerated anit biotics, narcotic pain killers (anyphilaxsis) MSG...the only anti biotic I can now take is in the 'myacin' class. I wouldn't say that I am 'allergic' to some of the OTC cold remedies, but most of them make my heart bang out of my chest. And eggs..no flu shot for me! Don't know if it's a fibro-thing or not, but fibromites seem to be very sensitive to many things.
