Hi all, I'm about to go for allergy testing sept11th and need advice on what to test. Here is why I'm going for tests and also what tests ive had done to me. A brief history of my 36 years is I've always had heartburn. I have a very touchy stomach and am a large consumer of Zantac and tums. My event started march 3rd, I woke up with a massive chest tightness.I equated it to weightlifting since I do that 6 times a week. I started taking lots of supplement shakes in January/ feb/ march. This chest tightness left but was replaced with major back pain due to knots in my muscles upper back. Then my neck started to get stiff and tense and then finally jaw tension. (not pain but tension) . I then in June started a post nasal drip clear mucus no infection. I also had more acid reflux than normal .I cut out alcohol, sugar and junk. My stomach seemed to feel a lot better,muscles also seemed much less tense. Can it be that all those supplement shakes finally acted as the last drop before the glass spilled over? And compounded an already pre existing allergy like gluten? The tests I've had so far are ( MRI spine, MRI shoulder, gastroscopy and pylori biopsy negative, 7 x rays, 6 full blood work tests,2 urine, EKG on heart, tmj specialist that said my muscles are tense but no bite problems , ENT specialist that said sinuses were swollen shut and hence post nasal drip). So my gp says it's anxiety??? Which seems like bs excuse because I'm not anxious at all except to find out what the hell is wrong with me . So now I'm at the stage of going for allergy testing since my doc doesn't see cancer as a posability or other right now. Opinions?
