my eyes, my ears, my esphogus, my mouth, gums ,tongue, my legs, feet, head/scalp, my nasal cavity, and my Vagina.
How does one work all of these issues, I'm exhausted , tired, weak, I use sprays, ointment creams,eye drops, ear drops, probiotics, Vit D, pills, more pills, 2 types of insulin for diabetes 4 times a day, C-pap....and the list goes on...and on...where does one start??, was at mayo for 2 years, Froedter Hosp Milwaukee over a year, now have Appt new Spec of L.P. Seem at Northwestern, Chicago Late Feb. Can't wait.... some say no milk/dairy, what actually are we trying to avoid in the dairy? some suggest no diet products that have sweetners?? Once again what are we trying to avoid? Does anyone know if there is a book out there for LP/OLP diets, the dos and donts to avoid flare ups?? I feel like I'm drowning with no way to surface, I've noticed many comments from the UK, they seem to have Doctors that are more learned with Lichen Planus than our stateside Physicans, why is this?
Things I have had to give up are tomato based sauces, ketchup, bbq, spice if any kind, Chinese, Korean, even egg rolls, tacos, my favorite tomatoes, eating out ff there is no way and restaurants are a thing of the past, anything citrus lemon, lime, oranges, tangerine, fruit juices, I have to cook everything plain and bland, it's getting old...no crunchy foods, chips, cereal, tortilla, cookies, and the big one chocolate...
I'm also allergic to vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves.....
Ok I'm off my soap box, if anyone has any suggestions on how I begin a way of eating that will benefit me so it's not so overwhelming all at once, List in the Midwest! Thank you !
