When I first started having food issues, it seemed everything was making me sick. Indeed, I thought I must be allergic to corn because there are very few things corn is not in.
Also, food smelled awful. Theatre popcorn smelled like urine. Other milk products smelled rancid. The bread aisle smelled like a brewery and made me feel ill.
Imagine sitting in a theatre surrounded by people eating food that smells like urine. I stopped going for awhile.
Since starting Plaquenil in December and going completely gluten free, my sensitivity to yeast has reduced and things smell like food again! Vinegar still hurts my tummy, but I believe that is due to the lack of moisture from having Sjögren’s Syndrome being combined with acid.
I seem to be very sensitive to precooked grocery store bbq chickens. But that could be gluten contamination.
I’ve been tested for Celiac’s and it came out negative, but I could be intolerant. My symptoms are in line with intolerance rather than allergy. I’ll spare you the details.
I successfully ate a Gluten Free vegan pizza, that I added meat to, a couple of weeks ago with no ill effects. Next, I plan to try again to see if it was just a fluke only I’ll buy the premade crust and just add my own toppings like goat cheddar. I will try a gf pizza from a pizza place with a light amount of regular mozzarella in about a month or two to see how my milk sensitivity is. I’ve never been a big egg eater, so I’m not in a hurry on that one. If I can have a gf pizza once in awhile, I’ll be super happy.
I just thought I’d share an update on my food situation.
