Hi..new here... I have become so frustrated with my food allergies that
I decided to get some input from other people on this roller
coaster...I hope someone can help..2 years ago I had an allergic
reaction to amoxicillin...a week after that reaction I started having
weird reactions after eating certain things...At first I thought I was
having some kind of anxiety attack...(when I had no reason to be
anxious) I just felt out of it, my stomach would get upset and I would
get itchy...I went through this for a few months until I figured out
that this was happening after meals...Went to an allergist and had a
blood test..They said on a scale of 1 to 4 I tested 1 for a wheat
allergy..My husband and I were suprised becasue we thought for sure it
was dairy that was gettting me..
I am trying to understand this roller coaster..Do other people notice
that their food allergies are inconsistent..Sometimes I eat wheat and
it bothers me and sometimes it doesn't. My main issue is rash on the
upper body and bloating and plugged up ears/congestion..I am trying to
figure out why some wheat bothers me and some doesn't.(ice cream
bothers me too) I hope someone can educate me on this..Let me tell you
what seems to bother me..The other night I had a wine cooler for the
first time in a long time..and I was VERY rashy...Is it the malt? I
seem to be bothered by some cake mixes and the homemade breads that
they make in store bakeries but not by pasta. So, is it a certain KIND
of wheat that bothers me. WIth trying to research the wheat allergies
I often see this topic of celiac..I would know if I had that? It' just
frustrating that after 2 years of rashes/congestion on and off I
haven't put my finger on the culprit..For some reason I seemed more
bothered this time of year..late Winter/Early Spring and also during my
cycle. Does anyone have any advice here? Thank you!
Amy

Perhaps you're allergic to yeast rather than wheat. You get yeast
in wine and homemade bread but not in pasta.

Did the allergist test you for anything other than wheat?

It's common to have allergies and/or sensitivities to a number of
different things. It's not uncommon for exposure to one allergen to
increase your sensitivity to something else on your personal list of
nasties. For those of us with hay-fever like sensitivities to pollens,
this can happen in early spring, when exposure to pollen in the air
might increase sensitivities to food allergens.

Figuring out your own personal list of interacting or cross-reacting
sensitivities can be frustrating. It's important to keep careful
records of everything you ingest, and to read labels carefully. What
was in the "home-made breads" in those bakeries?

Expect surprises...

Yep..allergist gave me the basic allergy blood test ...I think another
poster may have somethign with it being a possible Yeast allergy. (This
could be why it seems some dairy bothers me!)I never knew there was
such a thing. Would anybody be able to give me more info on yeast
allergies..Why is is so hard to find info on it on the web? I need a
general overview of the yeast allergy, symptoms, foods to avoid, ways
to get rid of it. Thanks for all your help...Should have coem here 2
years ago!

There are several different ones, none of them very reliable.

Not much correlation between yeast and dairy allergies, though any
combination is possible.

Tends to be idiosyncratic, no two cases are the same. Look up
"candida", "leaky gut" and "gut dysbiosis" for one variety of
yeast intolerance - you will soon see that there are radically
opposed ideas about whether the condition exists at all, if so
what it is, and whatever it is how to treat it. A balanced diet
and probiotic supplements will almost always help.

You will soon figure out which foods are yeast-fermented, which
is the important thing to know.

Don't expect quick results, but this is one allergy that often
does improve with time. Most others only get worse.
