Yes I do have environmental allergies..actually just found out. The allergist said that food allergies don't cause post nasal drip or the redness that is on the skin under my eyes.

food allergies (IgE mediated) as well as food sensitivies (IgG mediated) can cause postnasal drip. dairy is very inflammatory, regardless if people have senstivies to it or not. my daughter got postnasal drip and then asthma from dairy. after i pulled it out of her diet for 1 yr, she can now eat it, in limited quantities.

I'm another one who has chronic post nasal drip. It's so bad at time that it's made me vomit. I asked my doctor about this a few years ago and she couldn't really give me any info, but I did have blood tests done for a slew of common allergens (respiratory) and was negative for all of them (and I also have no other common allergy symptoms whatsoever, like sneezing, itchy eyes, etc).

Don't know what it could be except that it gets much worse after I've eaten... it's really aggravating. I still haven't gone dairy-free, though it's on the agenda. If you find out anything please post.

I had chronic postnasal drip for years, despite everything I did to avoid environmental allergens. However, after I abtained from dairy, my postnasal drip and chronic congestioin magically disappeared. Even when I get respiratory infections, I no longer have congestion or pnd.

Excellent. So in this short thread already 2 people have resolved the post nasal drip by removing dairy. This is great info. Last night after dinner (which involved a salad with feta cheese) I had a coughing fit with post-nasal drip so bad that I was gagging. Yuck. Might need to move that dairy-free trial up on the schedule...

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
