Ugh. Okay, SO. Here's where we stand right now. My RAST numbers came back completely negative. Like, zero. I went for a second opinion... The second doc re-tested me via skin prick and added all the foods I've had problems with. ALL negative. So that's great! Back to square one, though... And I'm congested like woah. (Ugh--sorry for the teen speak. I need a little coffee.) So I "get" to go have a CT of my head, specifically to check my sinuses. The second doctor wasn't quite sure why I'd not been referred to one by the previous doctor (no names given here, obviously), and why I'd not been referred to a GI specialist... which is my second stop. To probably be re-tested for celiac and other related conditions. For now, I'm cleared to use dairy since it doesn't give me GI symptoms (no lactose-intolerance here), but to stay away from gluten like the plague since it makes me feel so horrible.
Also, the negative results just mean that I don't have IgE responses to food, not that I have no responses or intolerances to anything. At least that means the reactions really aren't life-threatening. (I'm incredibly relieved.)
But you know, I feel SO much better with gluten completely out of my life, that even if my intolerance isn't something like celiac there's no way in hell I'm going back to eating wheat. Migraines, fibromyalgia flares, fatigue, eczema, and GI distress. Not worth it. SO not worth it.
Anyhow, for now I am going to have a lot less anxiety now that I have consistent skin AND bloodwork results. Even if I can't breathe through my nose and my ears are fluid-filled all the time.
Even if I do feel like kind of an idiot.
In other medical news, since I'm over-sharing already, I had my follow up mammogram and ultrasound yesterday from that scary issue last summer. NO CHANGES. Completely negative. I go back now for yearly exams, even now at 28, because of the family history.
Great news all around, eh? Except for maybe that I am insane.
