RE: post 1618
thanks doc 4 the advice. i however spoke to a different GP who gave me a transferral 4 an allergen test as well as celiac and heliop bacter blood tests. i will go after work to have it done.

it might be gluten intolerance that is causing these symptoms as i had 4 slices of bread last night and 2 hours after i was in tremendous pain and itching like mad. i itch every day. also had another huge headache. in the mornings when i wake up im tired but the other symptoms have subsided til i eat wheat again... and the cycle starts over. never realised what triggers it til last night.

i hope it is due to the wheat, will see 2nite.

take care

Hi Candy
Let me know what the tests say? If you are gluten intolerant, try switching to rye bread, and you can also eat oats, rice and potatoes instead of wheat products. Be careful as many soups, cookies etc contain gluten.
