I'm still not sure if i have this but...i read on a website that even smelling it can trigger a reaction is this true? I mean...if i can't have high sals foods and my husband can..does he have to give them up because...i can smell them when he's making stuff in the kitchen...

I had salicylate sensitivity for a while, but it seems to be getting better. It turns out I had gastritis, and the sals made my stomach sting.

I don't know if you can get symptoms from smelling sals, but I know I get a reaction from smelling gluten foods when my family cooks them.

I'm always paranoid while walking through the grocery store bread section...it's just unavoidable. I don't get sick but i'm always scared I will and hold my breath :( So is salicylic sensitivity something that is temporary sometimes then? I'd been sniffing young living essential oils-peppermint and ginger (both high in sals) the couple days before i got sick. The sick feeling was way worse than my usual slight tummy aches. And turnip greens seem to have given me tummy ache before too. Completely freaked out :(

I seem to be overcoming my sals sensitivity too. I haven't tried blueberries yet, but I have been eating spices, and spices are high in sals. The thing is, sals never bothered my gut. They made my psoriasis flare badly. I've been eating spicy bison hot dogs, and I also made pork pie with allspice, and clove. I ate it twice a day for several days (because it's my favorite). No psoriasis whatsoever.

I seem to be good with white potatoes again too, so if nightshades were a problem, it seems they no longer are. I'll be testing that next week when I go get some gluten-free pizza. The place I plan on going is owned by a family with celiac members so they are really good about CC. Several celiacs I know eat there without problems, so wish me luck!

Did you ever need an epipen bartfull? I'm on the sals website now reading their forums and utterly terrified. Some people can't even smell mowed grass and that's a huge childhood memory of mine that i savor during summer weather and i sniff it in and it's comforting. I'm really scared I'll need an epipen and that all this is permanent etc. I'm scared i will have to give up that childhood memory along with all the gluteny ones :(

No, my only sals reaction was psoriasis. What is your reaction? If it isn't hives and breathing then what you have is an intolerance, not an allergy. If you get sick to your stomach, you won't need an epipen. :)

I've only ever had stomach problems/digestive issues. I did have itching back in 2009 right after a visit to disney...i had a bad flu and my in laws gave me motrin. But that continued on and off for a couple years after and later i found out hypothyroid and celiac can cause this itching sensation under my skin. When my husband first moved in when we were dating i would get cold uticaria or whatever the name of it is lol....We'd be out walking in the snow in the cold and sometimes but not always i would get this large raised disc shaped things on my cheek. The itching i use to get from time to time use to be that i would either scratch my arm or my husband would scratch my back and a line of bumps would pop up where i was scratched. That doesn't happen the past year or so even before i cut high sals. What do you think? Is that hives?

I chew peppermint trident gum all the time too and usually my tummy isn't bothering me when i do. So i dunno what to think. Because i'm theorizing that these essential oils i sniffed might have done this...because of their sals content....i just dont know..

the group said this about it..not encouraging :(http://salicylatesen...7&page=1#Item_0

NOTE: I did the ice cube test on my forearm just now to see if i get cold urticaria still...i only ever got it on my cheek anyhow but for both me and my husband there was just a red ring surrounding where the ice cube was (which i would think anyone would get really) and no raised areas. Weird. Maybe going gluten free got rid of any urticaria..cold or otherwise that i use to have? I will say I put the ice cube on my cheek for a few seconds..couldn't handle more than that because ice stings....welll..i didn't notice anything at first and now since WARMING UP i feel a small little raised area..not sure if that was actually there before or not. Dunno what to think. What does it mean when you have cold affecting your face but not the rest of you??

    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
