So I never had food allergies. I had allergies to dirt, grass, perfume, smoke, animals, everything in the world except for food.
or so I thought.
Since my first MC in march I've started realizing alot of things.
1. my mouth tingles and/or goes numb - it started with inorganic apples then went on to tofu and even edamame. now it's inorganic strawberries, and spinach and walnuts and a few other random things. (three times i ate some thai food with tofu and once an amy's organic meal with tofu and had a bad allergic reaction with a sore throat and sneezing and everything)
2. I've always had clear skin but since my MC2 I've been getting the ocassional little bump and itching on my chin. I don't wear makeup or use any special face products so I thought that was strange until I realized that reaction is similar (but less severe) to what happens when I'm around cats.
3. Tonight I was eating some raw spinach, sun dried tomatoes, kale, guacamole and pumpkin seeds and the underside of my forearm started to itch. That's also a reaction I get from an allergy to something like a cat or perfume or detergent.
So I'm wondering now, why all of a sudden do I have these food allergies? or did I have them before but because my other allergies were so intense I couldn't pinpoint what it was? Or is my body more sensitive to things now and just rejecting things left and right?
Any ideas on what I can do to figure out what''s going on? ( and i can't take an allergy test bc I don't have insurance so that's not an option right now)
