Eye Doctor Vistit?

19 October 2012 - 10:37 AM

I have reacted with migraine all three times at eye doctor when they dilated eyes. I specifically asked this new eye doc if it had gluten or wheat or anything that would cause me to react and explained I am highly sensitive. He assured me not..Well, guess what?? I could not see the road to drive home very well and got a horrible migraine by the time I got home with no relief until about 6:30am the following morning. If my meds do not help it, then it is a gluten sensitivity. I have learned that much. :( Just wondering if I am only "oddball?" Thanks!

I Have Not Posted Before

Hello! I am 48 (almost 49 yrs old) and was diagnosed 3 years ago and remained in denial and then partial denial that it would go away. Well, it did not go away and the reactions are very disturbing. If I get wheat my lungs shut down completely. I was recently diagnosed Hypothyroid. I almost died twice as an infant and had growth problems. So, I was undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for 46 years of my life. :(
I decided to make my son some pumpkin/chocolate chip bars to take back to college today. Working with the flour made the sharp pain in my head come back and the allergy triggers start. It is so hard to cook for yourself and keep your family on a regular diet. I do not feel like it is fair to them to change them to gluten free. My son plays college football and I do not want him sick by drastically changing his diet. (suspicious that he is wheat intolerant) so what do you all do??????
Thank you!!!!
