I'm from the lyme forum, and I've posted on here once or twice before. I have joint pain from my lyme disease, so my doctor recommended fish oil supplements and MSM. I started taking them both about a week ago and have felt worse ever since. I'm wondering if this could be a manifestation of an allergy to fish. I had the skin test done and it showed up positive to fish and many other foods, but my allergist said the skin test isn't reliable for food allergies. I've also felt a bit fatigued, headachy, and generally sore the past week or so.
The only other strange thing that I've had for the past 2 years or so is a very slight raised rash on my stomach that looks kind of like small hives. It doesn't itch or hurt at all, and the different bumps come and go sometimes. I assumed it was a lyme rash, but I'm beginning to wonder if it has to do with food allergies (it is on my stomach, after all)... Any thoughts?
