    Yes I developed food allergies, make sure you have BENADRYL in your cabinet and don't eat that food. Work on your SLEEP hygiene , many articles on this on the web. Use Tylenol PM on bad nights of sleep. Do not make this a habit though. Use an acid reducer (omeprazole ) for GI problems, use it till it subsides. I will be using it till my other peri-menopause issues subside. Issue of peri-menopause are transient so hopefully you won't have to do this in the future, just for now.

    Hi Kim,

    It's amazing--I was thinking of posting this same question as I was driving home tonight! My food allergies have been extra sensitive lately and I wondered how common it was to develop so many food allergies during peri. And I wanted to ask the ladies on the forum if that is something they are dealing with.

    Around the time my earliest peri symptoms showed up, I became allergic to eggs, onions, nuts, and all fruits with a pit. Add to that a gluten and dairy intolerance and I am pretty miserable trying to keep my guts in order. (Bonus: I also now have an allergic dermatitis to all laundry detergents. Pro tip: vinegar is great for cleaning clothes.)

    Someone on this forum a few years ago suggested I google estrogen and histamine. There does seem to be some research indicating that there is an inverse relationship between the 2. As estrogen declines histamine rises. I just googled it again tonight after reading your post. And there does seem to be a bit more information than when I looked last year.

    Do you get anxiety with your skipping heartbeats? My main symptoms of food allergies is a raging anxiety and a racing heart. Do you take a probiotic? Food sensitivities change the bacterial flora and can amplify the GI upset that comes with allergies.

    How is your appetite? The weight loss could be from poor absorption that comes with food allergies/ intolerances. I've had that happen.

    Do you have the results from your GI scopes? Did they show anything?

    Feel free to PM me. I've had to become a little bit of a self-taught expert in this subject. 😦
