It is hard to say what caused it. With my allergy to tomatoes, it took a lot to track down. My symptoms were not normal either (felt like I had a bad sunburn on my head, neck, and shoulders). It would look normal and have no redness. My first sign was my ears, they would start up and the rest would soon follow. Once i stopped eating them, I no longer had issues with it.

 

It should also be noted that i miss those more than i do gluten. <_<

 

However, if you do suspect an allergy, be careful.

Ok I am going to quit freaking out!! Thats all I can say!! Sometimes my face swells alot some times it doesn't. So I take my Allergy pill and I think it helps. Thru the day my face goes down. I have a Doc appt soon. I will quit freaking out and just go to him let him know, Then he can send me to someone and they can figure it out. I have absolutely no clue. And from what everyone is saying here it can be a number of things, I wall "Suggest" these things to my Dr. So Thanks everyone :) I will let ya know in the end what or if they find out.

Are you taking any meds -- even over the counter? I am allergic to ibuprofen

( e.g. Advil) and aspirin. Both cause my eyes to swell shut, face and tongue to swell.

It seems to me that from all the things you ate on the first day you started your diet, the only thing no one has mentioned is the beans you ate... I know many people don't tolerate them ... I am one of them.. I think quinoa is also a legume.

Quinoa is a type of goosefoot. Surprisingly, it is also related to spinach, beetroots and tumbleweeds.

If you are going in for allergy testing waitin4dave, they will probably need you to stop the antihistamines a few days prior.  The tests may not work if you are on anti-histamines.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
