i think im goint to go insane, the only thing i ate out of sorts yesterday was a peice of ham and when i read the ingrediants (after i ate it of course) their is soy in it for flavor and the night before last (so friday night) i had a chicken breast after i ran that was also flavored with soy. now i had no reaction friday night, but yesterday after lunch my wrist started to swell up and by last night so was my hand, this morning both my hands and wrists are swollen and itchy! anyone have this type of reaction to just soy? i get hives something feirce sometimes when i accidently get "soyed" ugh this is soooo agrivating. at least with wheat/gluten i get a couple of days before all the reation kicks in, my hubby says maybe its only soy giving me the greif all these months but i doubt that.
the crazy thing is at one time in my life i was a vegetarian (i was pregnent and would get sick from it) now we get our meat from a local farmer who dosnt use antibiotics or growth hormones, so its rather funny that now it bothers me i ate tons of it when i was prego with the oldest, oh well,

anyone else get the swolled hands? and what do you do to bring it down, for the longest time my doc would give me prednisone but ug dont want any more of that ,
thanks :blink:

It may not be soy itself, but high protein. That is my experience. However, I've found a magnesium supplement very helpful for increasing nutrient absorption. This has helped with proteins, as well as carbs and fats too. The swelling doesn't usually occur unless I indulge on protein/salt rich foods.

I didn't think about swollen hands to be a symptom of food allergy. I've been gluten free since the beginning of the year. I almost always wake up with swollen hands. Sometimes worse than others, so it makes sense it had to be from what I ate. I so need to get religious about a food diary. Hope you get feeling better. Wendy

thankfully i dont get this everyday, only once in while, my health has been much better since i went gluten-free in feb, but once in a while i still get the puffy itchy hands once in a while and im sure it is related to something that i eat. i cant wait to get in to the GI and allergist may be they will have some answeres for me,
thanks
