The reaction I get is this. My skin gets itchy. My face gets inflamed (you can tell because my lips get big and red). My butterfly rash that never goes away gets worse. Basically my entire face gets more red and SUPER uncomfortable. I am a pretty anxious individual and after I eat I always get pretty bad anxiety. My mouth also always becomes dry after I eat. I FREAKEN HATE EATING NOW. I dread eating every meal because I know that I will be uncomfortable for the next hour.
I don't have lupus. My bilirubin is slightly raised. I have taken large doses of Vitamin A and vitamin B5 in the past. It has been 3-4 years since I ever supplemented with anything consistently. I also took minocyclin when I was younger FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR.
Can someone, for the love of GOD, please tell me what the F is going on. I've tried describing my symptoms to doctors and they think im crazy. THIS NEEDS TO END.
And realize that I eat all organic, home made (for the most part), food. I ate horrendously up until I was 15-16. The last 3-4 years I have been eating a very healthy diet.
I've had blood work done numerous times and all my levels are "normal" besides the bilirubin thing. My thyroid and liver levels are good. I had abdominal ultrasound done and nothing abnormal there. I know there are MANY other tests I should probably get done, but it's hard to do without looking like a goddamn maniac. I nearly got an endoscopy but I did not have insurance at the time so I had to abort that. It would probably make a lot of sense for me to get an allergy test?
