I Need Some Help As To Why All Of A Sudden I Feel Horrible

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i develop a horrid rash of hives anywhere from the waist down when i eat something and i do not know what that something is!

i went to an allergist who told me i WASNT allergic to wheat/gluten but WAS allergic to apples, bananas, melon and eggs and had a whole list of environmental stuff i was allergic to.

my bloodwork from my regular doctor came back as a gluten/wheat/eggs.

i had steak and rice on thursday night with a grey goose martini and the next day bloated, in pain on my left side of my stomach and COVERED in hives which are STILL there but fading. now yes, the steak had seasoning, as did the rice. the chef came out and said it was 'gluten free' but i do not know what else i could have eaten!

for an appetizer i had a bite of the salmon and mango and it did have a drizzle of something (maybe soy sauce??) but i do not know.

this felt like a BAD reaction with the way the hives looked and the way my stomach felt.

sorry so long but someone please help!

all of my allergies/hives/bloating started in August when my derm had me on Doxycycline for acne. some seem to think that its because of the antibiotics i took that have caused me to all of a sudden have the reactions i have been having to food.

i just dont understand why 'all of a sudden' these past few months have been hell.

How long were you on the antibiotics . . . long term use of antibiotics can cause an imbalance in your gut. The antibiotics will also kill of your good gut bacteria. You may want to check out probiotics. Definitely do some research, though . . . I am by no means up to par on this stuff. I am in the middle of researching probiotics for my daughter as we have had some long term symptoms that just won't go away and she has been on a long term antibiotic.

Things that make you go hmmmmm.

but everyone says that grey goose is 'ok' to drink i thought!

I went back and researched this a little and apparently some people have no problem with Grey Goose and some people do. If you had soy sauce, that's almost a guarantee that it had wheat . . .

Did your allergist do only scratch testing? Did your other doc do RAST testing (bloodwork) or was it a celiac panel? The RAST testing is suppose to be better for delayed reactions. In general, I've heard (not anything official), that scratch testing is better to find environmental allergies and RAST testing is better for finding food allergies.

Hives are usually an allergic response, but not necessarily. They can be caused by stress, too.

    In addition to celiac & rheumatoid arthritis, I also have Reynaud's syndrome. Mine occurs mostly with my fingers. Sometimes my toes get affected if it's really cold.  The grocery store is the worst for me. I hardly ever go in the grocery store without the Reynaud's hitting my fingers. I've tried wearing winter gloves but they don't seem to make one shred of difference. I've also tried using the Hot Hands hand warmer packets in each pocket & putting my hands in my warm pocket with th
    Thank you everyone I went for a second opinion just to re do the blood work hoping I can find out a answer. Last week I had the upper stomach pain again but no celery juice since November so I’m at a loss 😭 but all of my celiac panel including the genetics were negative just that ema which the second doctor said 1:20 is on the low side not sure if that’s true 
It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
