I have posted before but any new info would help.
i got really sick back in Nov 2006 with no one knows what. It seemed like the flu or strep or something.... and I still feel sick. I learned recently that im allergic to almost everything now. Food allergies run in my family but i never had them prior to my illness. I am very allergic (IGE) to wheat and milk, and soy and now sunflower seeds also. I had a high IGG (delayed reaction) to several other foods as well. Im miserable, Its not the food...but i have been free of all of these foods for 1 month now and im still feeling very ill. Swelling in hands, and nausia and fatugie and fullness in my throat. I also get a burning sensation on my ribs occassionally...like the skin hurts to touch.It almost come in episodes about 2-3 times a month. Im not sure what happened but i just want to feel 28 years old and be like everyone else again. I also found out that i have borderline osetoperosis through a Dexa scan (and im 28 yrs old!). I have also gained about 15 pounds and i am used to being quite small, my abdomen is also swelled too but that i guess could be my endometriosis. If anyone has any ideas I would appriciate your help.

P.S. I am also now doing allergy shots for the environmental allergies 3 times a week.
