  1. @stri8ed thank you for the link to the other post! @Lisa I had the full blood panel done. My doctor has Celiac and has no gluten symptoms other than the severe damage shown on his biopsy. It looked really bad when he showed me. I do have a wheat allergy but I also have Celiac which is not a food allergy. We are going to start testing for other autoimmune diseases because we don't think Celiac is the only one I have. Thank you for the welcome! @Juliebove I had an allergist/immunologist administer the allergy tests. I had food and environmental tests done. I know the foods were IgE tests. I had them done twice, once last June and then again on Tuesday. I had way more foods show up this time than last. I am also finding I am intolerant to a lot of foods. The foods that showed up this time are all foods I eat all the time since my first allergy test, and now I can't eat those. I am so overwhelmed and running out of things to eat. Today I am in really bad pain due to consuming soy and corn, but I kind knew that would happen. I also had a pretty bad reaction to some new fish oil pills. I am allergic to tuna, but there was no tuna in them. They caused hives, dizziness, and breathing problems.
  2. Hi, everyone. This is my first time posting but I could really use some help and support right now. I had never had food allergies until my onion one in 2000. I got really sick overseas and when I came back home I was given two rounds of antibiotics. For 2-3 months after that I had major digestive upset that no one (doctors/tests) could figure out. I was basically told IBS deal with it. I got better, for the most part, when I figured out I couldn't have onion anymore. Then last June I was given the Celiac diagnosis along with a couple of other food allergies. I started feeling a lot better until 2-3 months ago. I just had more food allergy testing done on Tuesday and was given a bigger list...mostly vegetables, tuna, oranges, watermelon, and squash. These are things I eat all the time! Now I can't. I already found I can't have legumes, soy, gluten, bananas, buckwheat, wheat, peanuts, corn, nuts, and dairy. Why am I having all these allergies/intolerances all of a sudden, I feel soon I won't be able to eat anything! Is there a way to fix this? Thanks for any help/suggestions!
