Food Intolerances And Sinus Congestion?

07 April 2013 - 10:01 PM

Hi! I have some concerns and would really appreciate any advice!!


I was diagnosed with celiac in August and have been gluten-free since. I still am in a lot of pain/discomfort with constant, chronic sinus congestion, that puts a lot of pain and pressure right between my eyes and on my upper teeth, and then post-nasal drip into my stomach, making me naseous. I think it could possibly be an anti-histamine reaction to some food I am sensitive to? I haven't had dairy for a couple weeks now, thinking that would help, but it hasn't made much difference. I've already had two sinus infections this year and am desperate to figure out why my body is constantly producing mucus. (I've seen an ENT, and had a CT scan done of my face, and they didn't find anything abnormal).


I tried to get my food sensitives tested with the MRT (Mediator Release Test) but found out my insurance wouldn't pay for that. Has anyone found a way to cover this testing or a less expensive way to get it done?


Also, any suggestions on who to see next, (Austin/Houston area), a gastro, rhumatologist, ENT, ??


And I had my allergies tested when I was diagnozed with celiac, but is it common for more food allergies to develop after going gluten-free? Or food sensitivities?


(Other symptoms include: blurred vision, floaters in vision, dry eyes)


Thank you SO much!!
