In Topic: What's The Difference?

I went through actual allergy testing with an allergist to find out what/if anything I was allergic too. She did two series of tests which didn't produce anything. Then we did a deeper series of testing called the patch test, where the allergen is left on your body for a few days and I reacted to that. Allergic to wheat and milk.

In Topic: Gluten-Related Muscle Pain/discomfort

Wow, interesting to see others who feel exactly as I feel...I just joined today. I found out through extensive allergy testing that I have a wheat allergy and milk allergy....I have been diagnosed with EE, which is short for Eosinophilic Esophagitis...anyone even heard of it? The symptoms I have from that include dysphagia-difficulty swallowing, ringed esophagus and also chronic heartburn/acid reflux/GERD.

I have also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia...I have severe muscle pain all over my body, but mainly my neck, shoulders, back and arms. It feels like the muscle pain that you have when you have the flu or like your body is just bruised. It's 24/7 all day everyday. After doing alot of research on food allergies I have a hard time believing (but am HOPING) that all my pain (not only muscle pain, but stomach pain, constipation, headaches, oh the list goes on) could be related to these food allergies???!!!

Anyone in the same boat as me?
