Common Questions and Answers about Allergies headaches food

allergies

Avatar f tn botax - lasted 1 1/2 weeks, steroids - one week, traction - 2 weeks relief each month. Food allergies a month - took a blood test and restricted a ton of food items. Seems to help but not sure. Today is day 6 of my headache. They usually last 4 days after I eat something wrong. Why could the other treatments relieve the pain and I could eat whatever? Do I really have food allergies? If I exercise with a headache, the headache lasts longer. I also wear a splint at night for TMJ.
Avatar f tn Hi Mark: I can so sympathize with seeing our children in pain and not knowing how to help them. My sympathies are with you on that! There are SO many reasons for headaches on a continual basis. Eyestrain, posture, neck and shoulder problems, jaw tension, right on down to allergies...especially, food allergies!
Avatar f tn I am 55 years old and have been suffering from headaches for over 20 years. Since I also have sinus and allergies I always associated the headaches with sinus and is pretty much what I'd been told until last year. Over the past 2-3 years they have become worse. So bad that I had sinus surgery in 10/11. However, I was told it would not completely eliminate the headaches because I suffer from severe allergies as well. The headaches got better for about 10 months. Then around Oct./Nov.
Avatar f tn I eat good foods, with no preservatives, and organic, but somedays are horrible!! my symptoms are muscle pain, when i eat the food offender, headaches, and hives, and depend the food , is the severyty of the symptoms, i don't like to take cortisone, the common medicine ,doctors recommend for allergies. Do you know if people with thyroid problems, have lot of allergies problem also? Any other suggestion?
Avatar n tn Hi, I haven't been on here in a long time but I have great news to share! And I'm thrilled to find a post saying Dr. Bolognese agrees :) I've been stuck on meds (Diamox) for the last 3-4 years. It's the only thing that works and my doctors are happy with that...I won't be happy until I'm a perfectly healthy 25 year old :) I spend a lot of my free time trying to make myself healthier overall so that maybe I can get a handle on these CM symptoms.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried LDA for food allergies? I'm desperate! I recently tested positive to over 20 foods! I'm starving and feel malnurished. This is ruining my life. I no longer can go out to eat, travel, or be a guest at anyone's house. Friends have stopped inviting me to do things. My family thinks I'm exaggerating my allergies but when I eat an offending food, my mouth goes numb, tongue feels funny and my asthma is triggered. That is a very scary feeling to me.
Avatar f tn I recently came across articles and videos stating that chronic headaches might be cause by food allergies. Sometimes a mild allergy to something can give you chronic headaches. Have you been tested for food allergies? I would try to explore if your thyroid labs are okay or if you have any food allergies, per example. More knowledgeable member here like to see test results to give a more informed opinion. Maybe you can post your results.
Avatar m tn It really depends on the person and how sensitive they are. I'm lactose intolerant and I usually know an hour after I have something if someone put so much as butter on it. If someone mixes up my coffee I know in 10 minutes because the bloating gets so bad. I'd also imagine food allergies don't act that much differently from other allergies- I'm allergic to fragrance but it could take a couple hours or days for me to experience symptoms.
Avatar n tn The best thing is to see your doctor, get tested out for various things like high blood pressure, food allergies, any thing abnormal in your head.
Avatar f tn So, watch for behavioral and mood changes, and watch for bowel habit changes. Food sensitivities can even cause headaches and sore throats--even if one tests negative for "true" allergies. Unusual hyperactivity or unusual lethargy can also be food sensitivities. A simpler way to look at food sensitivities is the other layman's term is sometimes referred to as hidden food allergies.
184420 tn?1326739808 food allergies, sinus issues (like you said, then maybe something like Sudafed would help better), sodium, blood pressure. But try the Advil or Tylenol first and see if you get relief. Space out your meds so that you are not taking different ones at the exact same time (it will be less hard on your stomach and give your system more time to process). Or you may need to take something BEFORE (like 30 minutes) you take the tx meds.
2038601 tn?1333407618 I am a woman who suffers with many allergies..including food allergies. Much of what is good for people is bad for me such as: fruits (all), many vegetables, nuts, wheat (my biggest allergy) just to name a few. I have been to an allergist and was told they have not seen a person like me in a long time...but because of that it has been very hard for me to loose weight. My nutritionist has been great in helping me get on track; however, I have lost touch with her because of my insurance...
Avatar f tn Unless you're allergic to peanuts, it's fine.
Avatar f tn So, has anyone else just randomly developed food allergies or intolerances? Two weeks ago milk products were fine. Now I cant have it at all, or I get really bad cramping and vomitting. Anyone else have this happen?
2191826 tn?1343830483 i have recently seveloped food allergies to meat milk an other things now i dont have anything to eat anymore since my life style requaires that i eat all food groups coz of my weak immune system. any ideas?
Avatar n tn There are allergy tests for chicken; however, what you described was more like food poisoning. Most common form of food poisoning is from under cooked chicken. If you continue to feel ill, suggest you go to your doctor.
541196 tn?1293552936 Your symptoms do not sound like food allergies. Possibly, food intolerance, which effects the digestive system. There are a slew of gastrointestinal diseases that can cause the symptoms you are experiencing (ie:colitis, irritable bowel synsrome, diverticulitis, crohn's disease, and list goes on). Have you to tried an elimination diet to see what may be causing your symptoms?
Avatar f tn s itch persists despite strict flea control every month, antibiotics, antihistamines and the OTC hypoallergenic diet, then the potential reasons would be a yeast skin infection, microscopic skin parasites such as cheyletiella, food allergy unresponsive to OTC foods (many food allergic dogs require prescription foods such as Royal Canin rabbit/potato, and the key is to give nothing else but water since it only takes one bite of a non-hypoallergenic food to ruin the diet trial), or a different al
Avatar n tn Most definately food allergies can come and go. It is very common actually for example for children with lactose intolerance allergies to actually get better ;and also vice versa for kids who weren't and then when they get into adulthood they become allergic to it. If you eat too much of one thing all the time your body can become intolerant of it and can cause an allergy. And finally yes, it is very possible to have a food allergy and not realize it until you have a reaction.
Avatar m tn yes, allergies can definitely trigger headaches - I suffer from Migraines and if my sinuses or allergies start acting up it will trigger them
Avatar f tn My son has alot of allergies and is on alot of meds for them, food and outside allergies and this time of year the out door ones is acting up. He gets runny nose and watery eyes and headaches. mabye if you wanted you could try to take a allergy med and see if that helps when you get a head ache or go to a dr that can test to see if your allergic to anything outside.
