This is support group for Adults living with food allergies.. I could not find any Adult support groups. I could only find ones for children, that is why I started this site.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself I am 40. Married to a wonderful supportive husband. Have 2 children and 1 granddaughter.
I had been suffering from migraines, eye problems, passing out spells, dizzy most of the time since I was a child. I had seen so many doctors they did extensive testing on me for everything. Except a simple blood test to check for food allergies.
Last year I started choking at night time not being able to breath. Waking up in horro,r felt like I was sufficating.This happened for weeks. It had been just getting worse and worse. Till I finally paid out of my own pocket to see an ENT. The doctor told me to get blood drawn that was a start. Well 3 days later I was working. I got a phone call at my job. They informed me that I had multiply food allergies. I had to be so careful not to eat so many things. That I was Highly allergic to Soy, Peanut. Moderately high allergy to Corn. Intolerant to Dairy & Gluten. Felt like a bomb dropped on me but at the same time. Finally relieved there was a reason for all my symptoms.
After all those doctors started declaring me crazy (It's all in your head). I have had to be extremely careful. If i go out to eat there is a huge risk of me getting sick or worse.
So I do know what your going through!! Also to why your here.
Here, I hope you have a great feeling of support, and help. Also that your not alone.
