So the last thing that I ever thought about was having food allergies. The only clue was I felt better when I didn't eat and something I thought was IBS, when I went last to Dr My TH17 was high which I thoguht to be associated with allergies and a lot of inflammation. Also I would eat some stuff then get loose bowels and other times I didn't (will be clear bellow why)
At this point I have nothing to loose and I am shooting and swing it. So I took it upon myself to go get tested for food allergies.
So I am allergic to Chocolate, almonds (most Nuts), Tomato, Garlic, Beef, corn, gluten products, rice.........
So why it was so tricky was the GARLIC and tomato!!!! So depending how things were season or what I eat it with I had issues. Since I started diet eliminating the long list, I have crashed!!! I think because I cannot use food as instant energy source. I feel better in the stomach, not loose bowels (except with tea and Pistachios which were not in the test).
Dr is looking into mast cells.
Just another peace of the puzzle or another deterioration, CFS progression???
I have been very low on energy and muscle fatigue, work has become almost impossible, thinking about disability . Some Dark times here.
Food Allergy last thing I would ever thought
