Hi folks, I'm Rhaevin, from over on the Chronic Pain section, but obviously that's not why I'm here. I'm hoping I can find someone with a similar issue who can maybe give me a little insight as even my "Female" doctor is a little baffled.
So I have this bizarre allergy. The long and the short of it is .... I'm allergic to being a girl.
Go on, scratch your head, look puzzled, and then laugh. Laugh long and loud. Trust me, I do.
Seriously, I'm allergic to elevated levels of estrogen in my body. Elevated levels, like you find when you're on an estrogen based birthcontrol pill, you're pregnant, and a few other natural times in a woman's life are down right life threatening for me. It builds up an excess of biosalts that my body is unable to break down and as a result my body starts shutting down, starting with my liver.
Does anyone else have this allergy? If so, and you don't mind talking about biology I'd really like to ask some questions off forum.
Thank you for reading, and hope you had a good giggle.
