Multiple Symptoms...What's going on?!?!
This is going to be long..........does anyone have any idea what is going on with my husband?
My husband was diagnosed with food allergies over a year ago. He had a blood test done which said he is allergic to wheat, corn, soy, and peanuts. For about 6 months he maintained a strick diet, but he was still having problems....breathing issues, severe stomach pains, uvula would swell up from time to time, weight gain, sleeping issues...a little bit of everything it seemed like! He also had a general blood test done at this time and his thyroid level came back a little low, which basically got brushed off. After his problems continued our family doctor referred him to a gastro doctor and he had an endoscopy done last June and was diagnosed with GERD. He was put on meds to control the GERD which helped a ton!! He started experimenting with foods and found that he was able to eat the foods he is suppose to be allergic too. Now fast forward to about September.....he started drinking LOTS of coffee and tea with LOTS of sugar added....all of the sudden he started having issues eating the foods he is suppose to be allergic to again. He stopped drinking "sugar" coffee and tea and all of the sudden was able to eat whatever he wanted to again... but not for long. It seems like when he has a lot of sugar in his body it causes certain foods to not be able to break down, so the result is a allergic reaction. He started avoiding all foods he's allergic to again as well as products high in sugar. Now......he eats hardly anything, but is still having symptoms.........Just today, the only thing he has ate is a salad and he is having extreme pains under is ribs, breathing problems, and tingly/numbness feeling throughout his body (which could be from the breathing problem). Oh yeah...and he is gaining weight again. He'll gain extreme amounts and it seems like he eats hardly anything! I keep telling him he needs to go back to the doctor, but he's lost hope that they won't be able to figure it out and just toughs it out, but it scares me....
Does anyone have any ideas what is going on? I'm sorry this is so long...I'm sure I missed something....he has gone through so much! I really want to get this figured out because we have a baby on the way and I'm sure I'll have my hands full with her and I'll need his help!!
