- CASE FILE
For 3 years I have been told I have idiopathic anaphylaxis and have episodes of throat closing and severe allergic reactions with no pattern
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
After having an anaphylactic reaction to the flu shot in 2016, I began having reactions to food and environmental stimuli. I cut out wheat, dairy, corn, soy, and anything fermented, processed, acidic, or containing food dyes. I had a baby and have slowly been able to add food groups back in. I still have skin reactions to the sun, butterfly rash on face, brain fog, cramping diarrhea, headaches, nausea, fatigue, heartburn, leg swelling and random facial flushing and throat swelling. I have diagnoses of adrenal insufficiency and a pituitary prolactinoma and am on long term steroid therapy. I just want my life back and I refuse to accept idiopathic anaphylaxis as an explanation.
-negative ANA and sedimentation rate
-seen two allergists and skin testing only shows mustard as a trigger
-tests for carcinomas and neuroendocrine tumors negative
