i have been coeliac and gluten free for over a year but still had many symptoms. I am finally feeling better since I've cut out corn, soya and rice. However over the last few months I've been having scary symptoms where my mouth/tongue/throat as been going numb and I've been having difficulty swallowing. I watched the post concerning cross-reactivity by FionaGFG (thanks!) and realised I was eating a lot of potato and since then, I stopped and the symtoms have disappeared, until this evening. No potatoes etc only meat, veg and seeds (although my family had potatoes) and very faint discomfort in throat.
I don't know how to deal with it. I am now frightened of eating anything. I don't know why I am becoming sensitive to everything. Not sure how to deal with it. I'm sure allergy tests would come back negative and am convinced I'll be shrugged off by the dr.
I feel lke my immune system has become so highly sensitive that it is scary. And what makes it worse is that I think my 10 year old daughter is following me in my footsteps (she's already GF but is starting to have symptoms come back).
Does anyone else have the same problem and has anyone else found a solution....?
