  1. I went to Denny's tonight. I ordered scrambled eggs, bacon, ham and hash browns. I ended up having an asthma attack within 15 minutes. Usual triggers for me are msg,gluten, cinnamon and yelllow #5. Their allergy list doesn't list any of these. Any ideas?
  2. after having 2 bowls of pasta one night and not being able to get out of bed the next day due to fatigue, I googled gluten free. Out of the online test I took I realized that it might be the problem(s) behind my constant dark circles, borderline anemia, IBS and constipation, asthma, allegies to 30 different food/ environment items, and the list went on. That day I decided to start a gluten free life. I've done well avoiding all things gluten with the exception of having half a burger bun ( which made me hit the sack for a 5 hour nap). In fact I can't believe how full I get on plates of fruits, vegetables and cheeses. My DH is worried because in a weeks time I've lost 12 pounds. I feel better, my asthma is not as bad, I have a little more energy but still needing a nap ( i contribute it to my age and several critters in bed!), though not as long. The weird thing was day 5 I felt crampy and full but that seems to have passed. I still have days where I can't eat because i have a horrible full feeling. Should I be worried over the weight loss and full feeling? I'm hoping it helps my asthma induced allergy to MSG. I try to avoid it as much as possible. Laura
