Hi, everyone. I'm sorry if this question has already been addressed here. I'm wondering if any of you with APS suffers with severe food reactions? I've read, with APS, that many people have developed food and / or environmental allergies when they never had any, or had very few, due to the autoimmune aspects of APS. I guess the allergies could be part of the "syndrome" part of APS?
Well, I've had a couple of food allergies my whole life: poultry and eggs. Later, in my 30's, I developed a severe reaction to nuts. Other than that, I could tolerate most foods pretty well. Then, as I got sicker with whatever I have (APS and other things), my intolerances to foods / chemicals have gotten ever so much worse. My food reactions have gotten so bad that, last year, I was put on a feeding tube. It's since gone and I drink the elemental formula now and try to eat a couple of foods every now and then, but eating is never without negative symptoms. I've had allergists watch my reactions to eating, and they say I'm not experiencing an allergic reaction, but they don't know what it is.
Does anyone else here have terrible reactions to eating? I'm not talking stomach ache or even diarrhea. I'm talking something that looks like a seizure with itching and flushing.
I'm being tested for ME, and I know that some people with ME have developed allergies to all foods, but I'm wondering if that's happened to any of you with APS?
