Allergies Now Too? Anyone Else? Had Enough Today

Hola.

Well, I've ignored various (nothing major) intermittent small patches of hives around my body these last three gluten-free months... I have even almost ignored 3/4 small lots of hives around one eye... But tonight I'm annoyed.

I ate an omelette (nothing new), onions peppars, bit of paprika, rocket, few green beans.

1 hour later...

Warm eye. Didn't even realise til I found myself pulling at my eyelashes because it felt like something was in there, that actually the corner of my eye is swollen and there are 5 hives under my eye (within eye socket area). Wtf? Sorry. I'm so annoyed. I've had enough.

Ok so I also had some wine (my usual, and I'd eaten 5/6 mint chocs, again my usual).

Why?

Suddenly I'm so much more allergic? I seemed to react to celery a while back too? What could this be? Also felt funny in the throat after eating fennel seeds in my rice a few nights ago.

So....

On just one eye?????

Anyone know what this could be about? All I know for sure is that I seem to know less and less every day. It's getting to me.

I'm becoming food phobic and feel as though every time I eat its like a time bomb waiting...

Could/ would leaky gut do this to me?

Won't be able to sleep again tonight :(

Gluten has a tendency for masking other allergys. I had this issue with tomatos. Didn't break out in hives, but i got the worst sunburn sensation ever.

Take a benadryl that should stop it. An elimination diet is in order, or perhaps even a trip to an allergist.

Thanks for replying.

It's a real downer. If I cut much more out I'll have nothing left. (Vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, caffeine free, soya free, corn free, virtually processed free!)

I hope it's not eggs, (although the increase in the amount I eat is substantial recently).

Also can't have nuts lentils and legumes in house as my son is allergic.

Gonna give up eating I think. Ugh.

I get hives *in* my eye. The first time it happened, I have no clue what triggered it. Then the next time, I was in the woods and my BIL had moved a tree branch out of the way so we could get through. As in a branch that was attached to the tree and he accidentally let it go just as I was passing. It whapped me in the eye and the eyeball immediately began to swell.

Other times both eyes swelled and turned red when I was around a certain dog. This didn't always happen so I have a feeling that it was not just the dog but some product that they used on the dog.

I have also gotten hives all over my body for no apparent reason and once for a very apparent one. Hyacinth bulbs. I don't think it was the bulbs themselves but something they were packed in. I couldn't touch them. And since I was the garden shop manager I rather had to. So I would try to wear gloves but then it would contain whatever it was to underneath the gloves. So if I couldn't find another employee to do it for me, I would look around to find a kid and offer to pay them a quarter or two to hang them on the peghook. Thankfully they didn't have this effect on other people.

Hi Designer-

I am sorry to say I could have written this post myself more than a few times. It sucks to continually lose healthful foods.

Took me over two years to find the right combo to start healing and then had another setback and lost more. I remain hopeful that once I finally heal my digestive system I will get some foods back - for now I am once again improving - I often say I would eat cardboard to stay vertical -- thankfully I have found lots of tasty options with my short list of foods.

I hope you find the right combo for you soon -- until then -- hang in there and feel free to vent as much as you need -- we get it!

@juliebove

I totally understand the hive thing you poor thing. I have had hives in reaction to animals and dust, but since I avoid them I have not had hives for 20 years! Except for now. And it's totally destroying to think that it's now from food. I'm in giving up mode today. Eat nothing. Just on the herbal tea. Though I'm sure I'll eventually react to that too!

@gottaski

I'm sorry you have gone through so much. Did you get hives? I have also come up in eczema patches around my eyes, and look completely gorgeous. Got a good look going here with the thinning hair. Went to my alternative health practitioner for some acupuncture today, and Osteo. He reckons the few chocolates and chips I ate over the holidays has put my body out and has set me back :( apparently all my GI valves had 'blown' and he reset them again. He says that perhaps by eating these things I have 'sensitized' my self again and flared my intestines (must admit they've been feeling sore for a few days)...

Thanks guys for answering. I can't even bring myself to rant anymore, today is just gonna have to be food free, I'm beginning to despise the stuff and look at it as if its out to get me. (Bad day today)

Yep - I get hives from crab, lobster, all seeds and heat.

Feel better - try to have some veggie broth at least :)

Oh seeds... I eat seeds.

It's the 'not knowing' that taxes me so much.

(I just ate a banana, having a sugar high) thank you

    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
    • Summer sausage, rope sausage or link sausage? what were the ingredients? Msg makes me dizzy.
    • I found it confusing as to whether this was gluten or free not.  However, I've not had gluten in two weeks now and had Hillshire Farms beef sausage this morning and my head is literally spinning.  I'm going to assume I shouldn't have eaten it.  It was good......but will avoid it from now on.
    • I've suffered with this for a very long time and never knew it was part of celiac. At age 13 I had the very first episode that I can recall.  Much later in life I had the bad peristalsis that accompanies celiac and would suffer for up to an hour after the initial symptoms began accompanying the D.  Mine would courteously wait until later in the mornings as I would get up at 4AM to get ready for work, and then it would burst upon the scene at about 7:30 AM with a vengeance.  Finally, 17 years ago, I did a search on my computer for causes for D and learned it could be caused by wheat, or celiac most likely.  Afterward I visited my MD who poopoo'd the idea that an adult could possibly have have celiac, her words "That's a children's disease".  She then sent me to gastro for a Sigmo, and it was then labeled IBS.   The symptoms continued until I got all the glutens out of my diet and then there was mostly quiet in my gut.  Then 10 years ago she sent me back to gastro to have a look at why it kept happening, had both upper & lower GI and the old Doc could not confirm anything as by then there was healing. Had it been caught back when I was 13, sure the food choices would have been plain foods instead of the cool pies and cookies offered at home, but better health. BUT, yes Night D does accompany celiac disease.
