I'm a new member here and was diagnosed with BD in February of this year. I'm Thai and currently live in Thailand. The posts on this site help me feel that I am not alone and have not gone mental. Thank you so much.
My first sign of BD was since 2004 or 2005 during the end of my 12-year stay in the US before moving back to Thailand. However, the progress became very fast after I moved to Singapore in 2008. I moved back to Thailand in 2010. Just as everybody else with BD, I have had my fair share of specialist visits, hospitalizations, and ER visits before this diagnosis.
What is strange about myself and have not found anyone talking about it here is that, in the year 2010, I developed a severe allergic reaction to shrimps and prawns. It will cause abrupt swollen bronchial tubes, and sometimes swollen tongue. Serious inflammation in the eyes as well. My allergist told me to carry an epi-pen for injecting adrenaline into my thigh if I get exposed unexpectedly.
I wonder if anyone else has experienced any developments in food allergies during their BD saga? It could be that it is something else I have, not related to BD. Please share!
