Food Allergy Withdrawal??

I was diagnosed with some food allergies, to rice, almonds, strawberries (all of which I was eating fairly regularly) and lots more, and had probably developed reflux and eosinophilic esophagitis because of it.

I have been off those foods for a few weeks and feeling a lot better reflux wise (no more chest tightness) and swallowing has improved, but have been feeling very nauseous and dizzy, a sense of fatigue, for a couple weeks now and wonder if there is some sort of withdrawal from not consuming these foods while my body adjusts.

I am sure it's a long shot but seems to have coincided with the timing so figured I'd ask. Would be nice to know it's that and not something else.

Probably more like low blood sugar from not replacing the missing proteins and carbs in your diet. You'll need to add things to take those items' place.

I have read that people could have withdrawal symptoms from eliminating food allergens.

Re: Food Allergy Withdrawal??

Would be nice if all it is - still feeling it. Could just be not getting enough sleep though...! Need a couple really good nights. The reflux has been up and down, and do hope it's related to the food allergy taking its sweet time to go away. Really trying to lay off bad things now (just stopped having my small morning coffee). Thanks!
