  1. Thanks everyone. I've cut down on the diary with a view to cutting it out again probably. The full feeling in my head, swollen eyes, clicky jaw as well as blocked nose and sneezing (which I forgot to mention initially) have all calmed down since reducing it. I guess I'll just have to be a pescatarian...
  2. I used to be vegan and gluten free but had problems with pains in my arms, exhaustion and low blood pressure so I re-introduced dairy back into my diet, just eggs and yoghurt so far. (I can't eat gluten because it gives me hives, diarrhoea, migraines and a swollen stomach). I've noticed that...
  3. Thanks Posterboy and Corinne, that's very helpful information about the vinegar and the fish. I have put mackerel on my shopping list alongside tuna and salmon, I used to like mackerel on toast. I find a lot of fish too strong but I will slowly reintroduce them to get the nutrients. I've been...
  4. Also, thanks for saying that I shouldn't feel guilty NNowak. The allergy type symptoms I've got today made me realise I'm not imagining being gluten intolerant and that I have to stick to being gluten free to look after my health. To be honest almost everyone I've told about being gluten free have...
  5. Thanks everyone. Today I developed the hot red rash on my face again, so whatever I ate my body has reacted to it. I think it probably was gluten in something, although I didn't get the full range of symptoms, just the migraine and the rash. I've also got a feeling in my throat that I usually get...
  6. Yes I feel conflicted about getting retested. I know there are a variety of tests you can have to check for Celiac disease, I just had the one blood test several years ago when I was still eating quite a lot of gluten. Relatives on both sides of my family have a lot of bowel issues like IBS, diverticulitis...
  7. Thanks for the info about B Complex vitamins Kitty. I did used to take a big tablet which contained all of them but it gave me a red itchy face which I learnt was 'niacin flush.' It went as soon as I stopped taking them. It also turned my urine bright green, so I'm now just taking B12. The blood...
  8. Thanks GFinDC and Trents for your replies. I had my bloods tested last summer when I was vegan and it turned out I was vitamin D deficient as well as slightly deficient in calcium. The pain went when I started taking Vitamin D and calcium supplements, but then it returned so I decided to stop being...
  9. I always check labels. It doesn't label wheat or anything related to wheat or gluten in the ingredients. But there's always the possibility they make it in a factory that manufacturers wheat-containing products. Either that or I'm intolerant to something else in it.
  10. Hi everyone, I've just joined so hopefully I'm writing this in the correct section. A few years ago I was having problems with a rash on my face and a 'full' feeling in my head so I got referred to the allergy clinic at the hospital. All the tests came back negative but because I mentioned in...
