I don't know what the "researchers" are claiming but here's what I know. For the past six months I have been suffering from a sudden allergic reaction which included, sore throat, tight neck, chest pain, chills, sweats, headache and sinus problems. Oh and a rash on my back, face and chest that would not quit.
I have had a sinus surgery I didn't need. I've had blood work, cat scans, MRI's, Kinesiologists, you name it.
Finally two weeks ago a specialist diagnosed me with leaky gut, candida and parasites.
I have given up gluten, sugar and dairy. I am taking Nystatin and Diflucan along with parasite killers.
One thing that seemed to be concurrent with these episodes was getting upset anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours prior.
2 weeks ago I had blood drawn while having the reaction. My ige was 24 but nothing on the 50 allergy test came back out of range.
My rash is almost gone and I am not getting headaches.
However, this morning I went into a rage over a telephone automated teller and some business dealings with US Cellular.
Within a half hour sure enough, sore throat, tight neck, chills, sweats and my nose started running.
Shortly after I took a claritin (doc said benedryl but I didn't want to get drowsy) and an Ativan. The symptoms subsided.
So YES, you CAN have anxiety induced allergies. I am living proof of it!
