I have been to many specialists, had lots of tests done and have very little results. I am writing to see if there is anyone in this community whom may help me. Or in fact, if there is anyone who has had symptoms similar to mine.
Firstly, I am a 28 year old woman, 5'3" and 128lbs. I have had experience with the Bulletproof Diet in the past, and went off it because I gained an unwanted 12lbs. I have otherwise experimented with typical American homestyle style eating, clean eating and other Paleo diets. I would say my diet right now is overall quite healthy.
For much of my life I've had issues with food, having suffered with an eating disorder for 8 years and thus dealing with issues like constant constipation and acid reflux.
About five years ago, I had a equivocal IgE allergy response to egg white proteins, with hives. This occurred shortly after childbirth and coincided with my first experience of vertigo on all raised surfaces.
About 8 months ago, I found myself completely unable to "tolerate" milk and egg products. I also have a moderate reaction to garlic. I finally decided it was time to see a doctor when I had a hallucinatory experience (in addition to the list of symptoms elaborated on below) after eating a large amount of cheese.
I had a full body reaction to any small amount of egg or milk, and went to my primary care doctor. After some blood testing came back negative (including testing of the pancreas, liver, kidneys and for celiac disease or diabetes,) I tested positive for H Pylori and underwent the triple antibiotic/PPI treatment. Subsequent tests showed it was cured.
I then had an endoscopy, and was diagnosed with moderate GERD and gastritis. This was believed to be a result of the H Pylori infection, but I still experience symptoms of the GERD, even after further perscriptions of PPI and later Zantac.
It was then assumed that the issue was allergy related. An allergist later demonstrated that there is no allergy to either eggs or milk. The egg allergy is gone.
The symptoms that I experience can be any or all of the following, while eating or within 15 mins after eating any egg or milk.
Extreme fatigue (difficulty moving/doing any activity, just want to go to sleep)
Labored breathing (out of breath)
Heightened pulse (example: 108 while seated)
Mental fogginess (feeling "stupid" for lack of better words)
Occasional ringing in ears
Itchy ear canals
Developed psoriasis on scalp
Tingling of the lips and hands
Headache in forefront of head
Pain in stomach/chest
Sometimes diarrhea and/or constipation
Gut feels inflamed
After having discussed these symptoms with the doctor, being cured of the H Pylori, my GI doctor ordered an MRI. Results showed severe constipation, but nothing else.
I am open to any and all thoughts, comments or advice.
