I am wondering how many people have developed allergies, or new ones, since they first got CFS? If so, how many? and did you already have some allergies before, or none? Allergies crop up on here a lot, but I would really like to know what proportion of us do have them, and what proportion has developed them as part of the illness symptoms. I don't remember having any allergies before I got ill, but now I have loads! I'm allergic to cats, oven cleaner and carpet cleaner (almost deadly allergies), dust mites, many types of pollen, tomatoes, gluten, dairy, yeast (very bad allergies), formaldehyde, and many other milder allergies.
