About Me

Started having GI problems 3 years ago. First symptom was histamine intolerance, found that I couldn't eat avo, tomatos, spinach and especially chocolate without getting a sinus infection/cold.

Second symptom was food intolerance. I found 1 to 2 days after eating chicken, egg, turkey and goat cheese, I would get severe diarrhea and cramps.

However even after eliminating these trouble foods, I still had random and frequent diarrhea attacks.

The last straw was constant nausea, bloating and burping/reflux. I also started having panic attacks and chills/fevers at night accompaning the diarrhea. After a scope and an initial IBS diagnosis, I went gluten free for a week and noticed a huge improvement. I then insisted on the IgA anti-gliadin blood test, which came back negative. TTG IgA test a few weeks later was also negative.

All symptoms gone after a few weeks gluten free, and accidental glutenings brought back all symptoms rather badly, so in spite of negative tests I'm convinced I'm gluten-intolerant. In addition, a few minor neurological/psychological issues cleared up much to my relief.

To date still gluten free and now also soy free.

Glutening symptoms that started *after* going gluten free - dermatitus herpatiformus-like itchy rash after accidental trace glutenings, joint pain, depression/tearfulness, mouth ulcers, insomnia.
