Food Allergies were my problem!

After almost a year of suffering with a chronic migraine and being on 6-7 medications and being terribly fatigued and depressed, my ENT Dr. saved my life.

Instead of putting me on another medication, she suggested strongly that I have a blood sample sent to an allergy lab and the results came back with 90 some allergies/sensitivities to many foods. I was shocked but I figured I couldn’t lose by giving a very strict diet of eating only foods that I didn’t test positive to.

In a few days I started feeling better. I went back to my primary dr. and the neurologist and told them I wanted off the meds and I wanted to see how I actually feel without them and only watching the food I eat.

I have my life back. I saw my ENT dr. today and took her an orchid plant and told her thank you for saving my life!

    Not being rude..just not understanding why you’d go to an ENT for migraine prevention…please help me to understand.

    Thanks for sharing your story!! It can be such a long road to figuring out triggers since there are so many out there and every person is different. Was the food allergy test called MRT?
    For anyone else who is interested in learning about food allergy testing, here’s some info:

    By the way, I LOVE that you gave your doctor an orchid to say thank you. It’s so important to let those around us know they are appreciated!

    Again, I’m so glad this testing has helped you tremendously.
    Take care!
