Sometimes it is difficult to tell if the symptoms I have are related to food intolerance, lupus, hormones or hashimotos. I used to be able to control my symptoms with diet alone (and thyroxin). There is a link between food intolerance and autoimmune disease and my doctor tells me that it is now recognised that there is a link between lupus and food intolerance.
The worst symptom I have is the dyspepsia or (GERD). It has become worse over the last year or so that I now take medication for it. If I have a weak moment and eat something nice this is when the symptoms become much worse to the point I cannot function. Last week I had fresh white fish (allowed) but it was cooked on a BBQ plate which may have been the culprit .. or perhaps the fish wasn't fresh enough and the amines had built up in it. I suffered for two days with fatigue, weakness, nausea and very uncomfortable dyspepsia.
A couple of new symptoms have manifested over the past couple of days. Even though I feel a bit sick and have lower abdominal pain these are symptoms that are most welcome! I am sure the little soldiers are gaining a foothold so to speak. Lets hope they are persistent in their quest.
