Food Allergy Trials
Posted 12 July 2012 - 10:06 AM
Yesterday we gave him a peanut butter sandwich on gluten free bread. No rash! However, last night he had a night terror and he hasn't had one in quite some time. Does anyone know if this could have been triggered by the peanut butter? Should we trial it again today and see if it happens again? The night terror did not last long, about 10 minutes, but I hate that nothing comforts him when he has them. He thrashes around crying and swings and kicks at anyone trying to help him.

Also, I would think it a coincidence with what happened. Those aren't signs of an IgE allergy.
PS Sorry about the other post. I have 3 kiddos running around and must have missed the part about the Dr's advice!

Sometimes I over google. I googled night terrors + allergies and there seems to be a connection, but I don't know if anyone else has experienced that before. I don't want to cause more night terrors and it was pretty coincidental. I was feeling pretty good with no rash showing up and it didn't seem to trigger his usual 'stuffiness' either. I guess I might try another peanut butter snack today and keep my fingers crossed for no reaction! Thanks.

Google shows the peanuts and grapes would be salicylates but the bread would be gluten.
You may have two culprits.
Just wanted you to know.

I wish you the best and commend you on doing this.
I wish I had done it for my son when he was small.

I couldn't prove the connection, but both my daughter and I view them as a side effect of an allergic reaction for us, at least. Obviously this isn't the case for everyone. Personally, I'd just note it down as something that happened and jot down everything he ate before it, yes? And then do it again if it happens again. If you start seeing a pattern, that's probably good enough to make an educated guess that there's some connection at least.
