So I've never been an allergic person other than allergic to pollen. Well, this morning I decided to give soy milk a try since I havent been eating dairy and I need to get calcium somehow. BIG MISTAKE. I had a cup full of soy milk with Chia seeds. Within an 30 minutes of d

rinking it I started getting really nauseous then within an hour I started getting itchy eyes, throat, ears, and mouth. Then I started sneezing like crazy and my eyes and head started hurting. Now my nose is really stuffy. Is this an allergy to soy? I had less than an ounce last week  (to taste it) and I don't recall having any problems. Anyone else with issues with soy? Is this common? 

 

Oh and one more thing last summer I started being intolerant to casein...well I'm imagining it's casein because I can't drink Lactaid or goat's milk bc I get the same reaction (extreme sleepiness and fatigue with a headache). I'm not quite sure what's happening but I'm becoming more and more intolerant/allergic to foods and supplements. I'm going to talk to my gastro about this tomorrow.

You are  still in the infant  stage  of  healing  celiac. some  people  have  found  they  are sensitive  to  many other  food  items... Doctors  sometimes  tell patients  to stay away from  any  type of  dairy for at  least 6 months... Dairy  is also broken down at the tips of the villi .....There  are  many  who react  to  soy products, I  for one  can not tolerate  any soy....or MSG which is another beast....

I would  suggest  eating  only  grass fed  beef, organic  chicken, wild  caught  fish,  veggies &  fruits  until  your  gut  settles  down. It  does  sound  very limited but  it  works....When  your  gut  is  better  it  will tell you what it likes & dislikes. You maybe  surprised that  things  you never thought  were an issue  are  &  things  you thought  were  nasty  are  now  okay... plus  cravings  do  go away .....good luck

People with celiac disease often have food intolerances due to intestinal damage.  I know you are not officially diagnosed, but you are attempting the gluten-free diet.  Like the rest of us, you are discovering that you have developed intolerances or allergies along the way.   The most common is lactose, but corn and soy are other top offenders.  Eat plenty of leafy greens (I sautee them for breakfast) and consider a calcium supplement for now.  

Talk to to your doctor about your concerns, but remember, it takes time to heal.  Lots of it.  Do not try too change so many things in your diet or what you supplement all at once.  Introduce new things slowly.  Chances are you just consume too much soy at one time.  Everyone is different.  Often with intolerances you can have a little of the offending food.  Problem is you do not know how much is too much!  It could be an allergy.  Often allergies are minor.  It is like a cup.  Fill it too full and you react.  Of course, you should discuss with your doctor because allergies can be deadly, but that is rare!  I am allergic to NSAIDS (anaphylactic) so I never take them.  I am mildly allergic to horses.  Do I ride, yes!  I just take an antihistamine to avoid the sneezing, itching, runny nose,etc.).  

eat those simple foods that MaMaw suggested.  That is my fall-back diet when I get glutened!  Eat them for a month or longer until symptoms resolve.  Keep a food and symptom diary.  Remember, what is healthy for some (like garlic and onions) could cause allergic or intolerance reactions.  (I used the onion/garlic example because they make me sick! ).

Thanks for the suggestions. I didn't know Chia seeds could be CC. Although my reaction wasn't how I normally react to gluten well besides the nausea I got 30 minutes after I drank the soy milk with the seeds. I am now getting what seems like ibs type issues (no D, but pain under my belly button and sooooo much morning sickness... not pregnant, currently on my period). Hopefully it's just a new period symptom bc I'm having A LOT of gas. Weird. I never really had abdominal pain before going gluten free.

Maddi, stick to simple foods while you heal.  Anything can make you sick.  Don't start eliminating foods until there is a reason.  

I think you need to settle into the new diet, don't eat out and heal.  Keep anxiety and stress low as this can also effect your immune system

Keep a food journal.  Include your activities to find a possible airborne allergen, like horse back riding.  If you are trying a new food, like the soy milk, small amounts~ in pure form~ for 3 days as a challenge.  Keep note of your reactions, symptoms, and B.M.s.

I don't really have much faith in allergy testing, but it may be something for you to consider.
