CaseyD Posted November 7, 2012 Share Posted November 7, 2012 I've been experimenting with foods I'd rather not eat anymore because of constant morning sickness. I've tried everything and I'm getting very desperate here, otherwise I wouldn't be reintroducing these foods. I'm curious, and I may be posting this in the wrong thread (sorry!), about what is going on here. I've tried reintroducing wheat and rice after many months of not having either, and I'm having reactions similar to the reaction I have with my pretty severe dairy allergy. Now, before I cut these grains out of my diet, I never had reactions that I was aware of, although I'm certain now these foods were hurting me. I started pulling them out, and then caving now and then during the first half of this year, only to have pretty mild reactions. Then, in June, I believe, I completely stopped eating wheat. In August, I stopped rice. Now, when I have either, I have major inflammation in my sinuses/ears so bad that I'm dizzy. This is how my milk allergy starts to manifest when I have a very small amount. But, when I ate the wheat, my stomach felt better for the first time in 4 weeks. So, I tried to bring wheat back into my diet gradually, just for the sake of surviving morning sickness. This isn't working because my reaction is not calming down. I have the same bad reaction each time I eat wheat or rice and it seems to build on itself. I have no choice but to stop this experiment and just be very sick. This was literally my last option. Oh, well. I'll live, but I just want to understand what is happening now when I used to eat wheat all the time and never had this happen. Is it possible to create an allergy by quitting foods you may have unknowingly been sensitive too? I'm really curious as to why this happened, mostly because this is building a case for my husband to not let our kids be paleo (he doesn't want me to cause them to have food allergies because he believes I created mine). I just want to understand this! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
