No problem about the questions!
I was tested by an allergist after I started to develop severe joint pain over time, sores in my mouth and on my back, as well as massive hives on my face that nearly blocked my airway (I had to carry an Epipen). I also had severe eczema. I tested positive for a flour allergy (this is different from celiac disease), potato, tomato (the whole nightshade family of plants), berries, soy, and benzoate (a common preservative). I am also lactose intolerant. Well once I cut these food items out the hives and eczema and other symptoms went away.
However, I went on like this for most of my life before I was properly diagnosed with allergies. Looking back I can remember that I had brief “spells” of dizziness not long after I got my allergies under control that were the precursor of full blown MAV (that feeling that the ground was giving away). At the time I thought it was low blood sugar but it always happened in busy visual environments. A few years later true MAV hit. I wonder if years of chronic allergy did play a part - Lisa
