I am new to this forum - I just found it and am quite hopeful someone out there will be able to help me figure out what's going on.

I have been having multiple ongoing health problems over the past year and a half (new symtoms keep popping up) but have been unable to get a diagnosis. I have seen several doctors and had blood tests done, but none of the doctors seem to have any answers.

So, here are my symtoms:
* Frequent nausea (especially first thing in the morning)
* hair loss (my hair is much thinner than it used to be (overall, not patches))
* allergic reaction (itchy throat (inside and out), itchy face, anaphylaxis) to foods I used to eat all the time
* severe headaches / migraines (though these have lessened over the last few months since I changed my diet)
* dizziness

* and as of last night: severe abdominal pain (still have it) and I also became disoriented and passed out. I am unsure if these latest symptoms should be considered part of my "ongoing ailments," or if it is something that will pass over the next few days.

Has anyone experienced many of these symtoms together? Anyone have any idea what could cause this? I'm starting to get worried....

  • Also, have you been working with treated lumber? (such as building a deck?) I think arsenic is in the treatment.

  • That's an interesting idea. I'll defintely look into that. I worked in laboratories for years with all sorts of chemicals (compounds containing platinum or palladium, carcinogens, various nanoparticles, etc). The doctors I went to knew about my working in labs, but I didn't think to ask about metal poisining. I'll definitely contact my doctor to look into that! Thanks!Any other suggestions, too?

  • I'm having the same issue! Except my trigger is to tree nuts,anything processed with tree nuts, malodextrin and mononitrates , and prednisone. My hair has been falling out as you described, my skin bleeds at random from one poor, similar to if you were to ****k your skin with a needle, but just at random. My allergy is rapid onset too, a year ago I was eating almonds, etc. and was just fine. My first symptom of the reaction was numb lips and then i went into shock. I too have not been able to find answers through doctors. my blood tests come back fine, but I feel like this allergic reaction is masking something more serious. Help me too :(
