My daughter since birth had food alergies to milk,eggs,carrots...Also, severe asthma which has improved. She is pettite and has not grown much since 5 and is very fearfull trying new foods and most foods are discusting to her... Since the begining of 2008 she has had problems swallowing water... We had been at several hospitals in NJ and had tests done with the camera down into her intestines/with a culture and could not find anything... So they opened a case with the social workers thinking we have problems at home.
Resently we had another count of food alergies(milk,eggs,carrots,beef, pork, peas,corn,green beans,soy,wheat, poatatos,apples,oranges,shelfish,etc...) She is also very alergic to animals... We had questioned her alergist and asked if it could be alergic esophagitis and she agreed... A shrink had seen her and does not think anything is causing this mentally. She is fearfull to even go outside now and is being homeschooled.
