The pollen gets to me too. If I walk outside and the wind is blowing, the pollen gets all over me. If I ride with my windows down, it not only gets all over me, but inside my car, so I keep my windows closed (car and house). If I go to bed without washing my hair, the pollen gets on my sheets and pillow cases, then, even if I do wash the next day, it won't help, because I'm sleeping in pollen. Pets can bring it in too. I also wash my clothes right after I come inside for the day.
One of the "tests" my allergist mentioned, was to check my pulse rate before eating something. Then check it again 10 minutes afterwards. If it has noticeably changed, I am allergic to something I ate. You'll notice if you ever get the ***** type of allergy testing that the tester will also check your pulse rate.
Allergies create all kinds of strange reactions. Some of my reactions: blurry vision. Horrible cramps and bloating, feels like my stomach is a balloon about to burst. ADHD. Slow thinking and diminished ability to comprehend sentences. Depression. Back pain. Muscle spasms. Leg muscles twitching. Altered emotions, and inability to control my emotions (crying for no reason). Fever. And of course the normal rashes and congestion and sinus drainage.
I get back pain from phenol, a common preservative. It's been in my allergy drops for over a year and now it's built up in my body to a very uncomfortable level of pain. So last week they went to a new formula, no phenol, but the solutions were way more potent than what I was taking, she said the new drops were twice as strong. Every night gas swelling me, rumbling around in my belly making noise, coming out both ends
. I'm going to get the solution diluted again, because it is apparently the cause of the gassy problems.
Perhaps you could take your blood pressure before you eat, then again a short time afterwards, and see if you can spot the culprit. My guess would be either sugar, caffeine, or wheat, but you're the only one who can figure it out. Good luck!
