Hi all,

I am new to this site & this is my first post!

I had a nasty virus + food poisoning last year also mixed in with some PPIs which left my stomach in a mess. I could eat any food, I would just feel full for hours after. This has now eased but I have been left with the following symptoms:

Lactose intolerant (cut all out including milk solids)
Extremely blocked ears after eating eggs, soy & wine.

It takes half a day to a night for it to set in but it becomes so bad. I have no other symptoms when consuming these foods.

Does anyone else experience this? Is it a food intolerance/allergy or do I just have very mucousy ears?

If anyone has any insight on this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks. smile

have you tried any probiotics ? it can be a challenge to find one that works for your particular gut microbiome and specific symptoms, but it's probably worth it to try -

are you eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables ? any fermented foods ?

try removing the foods from your diet that are bothering you for a month - then start adding one at a time slowly and see what happens ?

Sure, it can be a food intolerance.

I've had one specific intolerance that took 8 hours to develop, and some people who are sulfite intolerant don't get a reaction (usually a headache) for 2 days.

The only way to tell is keep a food journal. See many posts by putting the words in the archives - the search box at the top of the page. There are no reliable tests for many food intolerances, and the reactions tested for are generally only histamine skin tests.

I don't tolerate eggs because of the sulfur. Soy products often contain sulfites. I react to fermented foods and wine (sulfites). My reaction is fairly quick for sulfites, usually 30 minutes or less, stomach upset and tachycardia.

I'm lactose intolerant, but do fine with Lactaid. (Lactase pills don't help me unless I take several of them.) If you can't tolerate Lactaid, you may be allergic to the protein - much worse than just avoiding lactose (milk sugar). It's easy to figure out lactose. You usually get gas, lots of gas!
