I'm doing my research. Determined to beat this. I'm reading on line a connection regarding women suffering from histamine intolerance brought on by the hormonal fluctuations common during meno. Foods high in histamine can trigger allergy-like reactions in your body. High Histamine is hidden in the lists of things that can go haywire with our bodies during meno. I also, read Claritin blocks the action of histamine. It's a HI Blocker they call it and on line I read it can lower any inflammation that is going on to help lower your symptoms by blocking the high histamine levels if you have them. So, I'm on day 2 of the Claritin and my head is calming down from dizziness. I'm feeling more mindful also, of my actions which I haven't been able to grasp in months. So, something is breaking up. I can't wait to be on it for week or 2 to see if it really really works but, today has been my best day in 9 months and it's not due to today being a holiday at all. I think there is a real link with food though during this time. On line there is a lot of info about it. You can look up The Menopause Histamine Connection. Also, The Curious Link Between Estrogen, Mast Cells, and Histamine . It starts off stating that: Headaches. Anxiety. Insomnia. Brain fog. Hives, Nasal congestion. Are just a few symptoms of histamine intolerance or mast cell activation syndrome. I'm no doctor. I think there are other blockers out there too other than Claritin. Always, make sure you can take something new with whatever your already taking but, just wanted to throw this out there. I think for me at least there is a real link here to this helping my symptoms and possibly someone else's. Thinking of you all during this time. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!!!!<3
