Topics I've Started

My Frustration Level Is At An All Time High

07 September 2012 - 07:42 AM

I have no idea how I can go forward.

I'm eating almost nothing, and came up poisoned by something.

Since I'm only eating about 4 things, the one thing that seems most logical since I don't have it every day would have been the banana I had.

When I was in deep fog and pain over the rest of yesterday, I totally forgot I ate one, but last night I remembered that I did eat a banana.

So I google'd banana intolerance and came up with this whole "histamine" class of food that I had no idea even existed.

When I look at the list of foods - many of them are things I have known I was intolerant of - this is the first time I've ever had a problem with a banana.

My reaction to the banana was the same as my reaction to gluten - brain/vision fog, severe joint pain, very tired, bloat, constipation.

I had an allergy test about a month ago - in that test I was pricked for about 40 food items. Non-reactive to all of them, and many on the list are on the histamine "avoid" lists.

I don't know what to do with this new issue.

I read some posts that suggest my intestinal system could recover and these foods might become tolerable once again.

I don't know what bothers me more, just being poisoned again or having another full set of items I have to avoid.

Restaurant Inquiry For AZ gluten-free'ers

19 August 2012 - 01:04 PM

I came across a restaurant in my online scouring that seems to be run by people that are close to the gluten-free issue.

I have been wanting to go do a test run, but they are a little out of my general neighborhood so I haven't made it there yet.

Their menu is both loaded with items, and well identified on the menu. And Italian, to boot.


I'd love any feedback, positive or negative.

Looking For Feedback From Folks Who Have Used Immunolabs

18 August 2012 - 07:12 PM

In addition to gluten, I am being negatively affected by other things that are kind of hard to pin down.

At the moment I'm on an extremely limited diet, which allows me to recover. However if I stray away from a very tight grouping of food/drink I get poisoned.

An acquaintance mentioned that he had done this immunolab testing, and learned some things that allow him to feel really good and to enjoy more variety without running into unknowns.

I'll be consulting with a doctor in the next couple of weeks - but one of my questions that comes to mind right of the bat is will the test still show +1/+2/+3/+4 for items if I'm on a very tight diet?

My acquaintance showed me his results booklet, and it showed about 25 items that he was "+" for and I can't imagine that he was necessarily currently consuming all of those items when he went in for his test.

His test booklet date was from 2007, so his reference information was a little dated.

Anybody that could chime in with some current information would be greatly appreciated.

Product Warning - Marked Gluten Free

02 August 2012 - 05:38 PM

The product that I have been contaminated with - and I say this after getting the 2nd contamination today (the first time I thought was possibly from something else)- is Tyson's Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips.

I'm furious about this, because I had one other brand in my shopping cart but it didn't say gluten free. The list of ingredients was safe, but when I came to the Tysons it actually said gluten free on it, so I put back the other brand and bought the Tyson's.

Another costly setback on my wellness. About 20 minutes after lunch today I was feeling a little bloat. By the time I got up from my desk at the end of my work day all of my joints were in heavy pain, and a light fog was setting in.

I know I have some sensitivities to other things like nuts and rice's, so I guess it's possible it is something else affecting me from the ingredient list, but the ingredient list doesn't have anything on it that should set me off at all.

Everything else I ate today is 100% clean - broccoli that I eat almost every day, hard boiled eggs, kraft cheese slices, cranberry juice, banana, grapes (well washed), nectarine (well washed). And water.

I was suspicious of buying anything from Tyson, but the fact that it said gluten-free lured me in.

I blame myself. I have to prep for lunches better with my own prepared meats.


Tomorrow will be long.
