Suddenly about 15 years ago I began having drug, food and environmental allergy problems. I am even allergic to allergy and asthma meds. I am able to eat only beef, tomatoes, and "wheat only" products, aka certain pasta and cream of wheat cereal. I'm desperate and scared and no one seems to want to help me or to be able to help me. I have been to many doctors and they all seem too busy to be bothered. I'm tired, and hungry and scared and I don't know how much longer I can live like this. My body is falling apart. I'm in pain and can take nothing for it because I'm allergic to everything. Please, somebody help me.

  • I am so sorry to hear about your situation. I know how it feels, because it happened to me too. It was awful. I had hives, weeping sores, eczema and angioedema / eye swelling. My eyes would swell almost shut. It happened to varying degrees whenever I ate, and then sometimes it happened spontaneously. For me, it turned out to be intestinal parasites. The waste of the parasite builds up in the intestines and starts causing histamine(allergic) reactions, and then any little thing can set it off, because it's common to have very small histamine reactions to lots of things. But if you have a large, underlying load of histamines from the presence of the parasite, then even small things will send you over the edge into a full blown severe allergic reaction.I wrote a website about my experience, including the details of how I got rid of the parasite. I used all natural things, and had to use things that were safe for a baby, because I was nursing a baby at the time. The address is:http://www.howigotmyhealthback.comI hope this helps you. Don't be embarrassed about possibly having them. They're all over the place, and the CDC says that 85% of Americans have intestinal parasites at any given time. We just don't talk about them! And in some of us, an infestation can build more easily than others, even if we're exposed to the same stuff. I know this is two years after you wrote, but I hope somehow you find it, or that others in the same situation can find this and benefit. All best wishes to you.
