what allergy is this? *HELP PLEASE*

Hi I am 23 and have been suffering with a allergy for a long time. It got pretty bad in January 2012. My symptoms are burning stuffy nose, burning eyes, burning tingling mouth (irritated), slight mouth sores, joint aches and burning, full body aches, severe stomach pain, ocassional vommiting, diarrhea, not digesting food right, stomach cramping and burning, burning and aching from head to toe, flushing, dermagraphia, ear pain, sinus pain and burning, headaches, rectal burning, burning veins, tingling in hands and feet causing numbness in toes from no circulation, and extreme fatigue. I have had times where I get worse and get a little better. I ate wheat pizza the other night and had terrible stomach pain and nausea and ever since I have been very sick again. Its been three days and I have been eating gluten free, not better yet.
I have been tested for celiac and had a endoscopy and it was clear just stomach irritation. Does this sound like a gluten allergy. I have had mild symptoms for years. I have a allergist appt. in two weeks but desperate right now. What else can cause this?

Re: what allergy is this? *HELP PLEASE*

You can definitely have gluten intolerance without having celiac disease or positive tests for celiac. One test that can be helpful to establish gluten allergy is an IGG (not IGE) blood test to wheat or gluten. Some people only figure it out by going on a gluten free diet and seeing how they feel, but 3 days is way too soon to expect any change. You need at least a month or more to get a feel of whether that is helping.

3 days is nothing it takes a lot longer than that, drink tons of water to help hydrate

I would also consider milk protein allergy too, and that can be tested the same way.

Re: what allergy is this? *HELP PLEASE*

Do yourself a favor while waiting to get to the allergist stop any and all alcohol drinking since this generates histamine , which by the sound of it your body has too much to handle. Also drop all caffeine this does not mix with a gluten allergy even though it contains no gluten. It will also affect your muscles for the worse since they are already inflamed . Just an FYI , I wish you luck and hope you find out what your allergic to soon.

Re: what allergy is this? *HELP PLEASE*

Thank you... I'm going on day 6...no gluten at all and still burning from head to toe. I feel like I am on fire. Is it normal for it to be lasting this long ? What other food allergies can be this severe?

Re: what allergy is this? *HELP PLEASE*

Are you taking any antihistamine? Something like fexophenadine or loratiine OTC would help respiratory symptoms and ranitidine or Prilosec might help stomach burning. I would try both fexophenadine and ranitidine as they are both antihistamines, just different types, and work well together. Antihistamines may need to Jae stopped a few days before your appt with allergist to not interfere with testing. You can call dr office and ask about that. Good luck!

The list honestly is endless , for all you know it may not even be a food allergy it can very well be environmental . Take some Benadryl at the very least and see if this help, and pound down the water thirsty or not.

It takes a good month trial when you remove a food. Move one at a time to be sure of what it is
