Good luck
LOL, hon, I have soo many food and chemical sensitivities it's not even funny.

I'm down to the point I eat the 90/10 hamburger by itself made into patties, no seasonings of any kind or tuna fish in water with mustard. And I can drink Goat's milk with no problem. Plain water even gives me problems at time.

As long as I eat just that i'm ok, I introduce anything else and I get sick

I've gone to the dr's and all they want to do is give me medications that dosen't help the problems at all. Just makes me sicker. I've had all sorts of tests and it comes down to Chron's, food sensitivities and what 1 doctor thinks is chemical sensitivities. You ought to Google Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. It is scary as hell. In fact i'll give you a link to 1 spot. Here is the Wikipedia page

The more I read about chemical sensitivities the more I wanna go live in the woods in a mud hut, LOL.

I haven't got Celiac disease, so they say, but I react to gluten like I do.

I can't afford to see a naturepath, I think it's called? So I am researching through books, Google and people on Youtube who have similar problems.

That's why I am going to start my own garden next spring, that is from heirloom seeds, organic as possible, non GMO, companion planting, etc in hopes that might help. I'm also researching herbs and what they were used for in the old days and growing those to see if that helps. I've stopped using plastics, gone to glassware and stainless steel pans. Ditched the non stick cookware and started using a cast iron skillet, researching homemade soaps and shampoos, etc. Some of those changes is starting to make a difference. I am feeling a noticeable change in how I feel in that respect.

I've watched a bunch of Youtubers who have some or all of these problems and they have gotten better by doing that. 1 of them is an older gentleman who has been growing food for over 30 years. He started getting sick like me in 08 and has adjusted accordingly.

His name is Danny, his channel is called Deep South Homestead, he's a retired minister and had his own construction company at 1 time. He built his big house and he's in the process of building a small off grid cabin where he and his wife can go to get away from modern conveniences to see if that might help also. They have 10 acres and nobody to tend to the gardens and animals if they leave. He processes his own animals too, So, this is their getaway cabin to destress.

Anyway, that's what's going on.

There's lots of crap in the food most people eat nowadays. If I eat a hot dog or cured ham sandwich, my joints feel like someone's sticking pins in them. Pizza, burgers, soda pop, all that crap is poison. For me, it's pretty much bottled water, fresh eggs, fresh fruits and veggies, and nothing that wasn't bleeding in the last week or two. Even frozen foods that claim to be pure or "fresh frozen" are usually treated with some kind of chemicals to keep them the right color. If you check the ingredients on canned goods you'll see the same thing.
You might consider going on a water fast for a couple weeks to see how it affects your joints. Can't hurt and you'll lose a few pounds which is always good for your joints.

It is strange how many will essentially say and want one to be healthy when that is not the case. I have an IBD condition. No matter how much I explain my illness and how it effects me and limits my abilities, typically most people are incapable to imagining beyond their own health. I'm supposed to be healthy and do as other healthy people. it used to irritate me but now it tends to go in one ear and out the other.

Sorry about your father. I've recently learned of myself that a couple foods cause me to bleed and experience fatigue. Bleeding is something that can happened to those with an IBD condition. They are garlic/onions and pork. The garlic/onion reaction can not only make me bleed but also will cause my muscles to ache something terrible, after a number of days of consumption. It makes for bland eating avoiding garlic/onions but hey who knows if the aches and pains stay away and the stomach does better I might eventually become the assumed healthy person others expect.

I'll also say that being forced to change diets due to several medical conditions, has made me more aware of what goes into foods, and why when eating something I'm miserable for days.

The medical community would like to have you believe that anything can be managed by medications and reoccurring "maintenance". Reoccurring maintenance is what I do to my truck, and not my body.

I've had to seek people outside the medical community for wisdom and help, using herbs and other forms for medicinal use.

In pharmacy, I've found that not all medications are the same, and that sometimes paying a little more to a pharmacy which does compounding can produce better results as the effect can be related back. (I find some doctors unwilling to compromise in prescriptions, which has me asking why.)

I've found that I've had to pay attention to what is called food, and the methods in which it's grown, processed, and served. Likewise I've had to weigh a lot of the medical advice, prescriptions, and treatments.

I've also had to open my mind up to accept things such as CDB oil, which three years ago I would have side was "snake oil" and silly.

Finally, I find that much advise has to be weighed as opinion because what works for one person may not work for you. And sometimes people like to feel helpful by suggesting things which have not been thought out carefully.

The bottom line is that while we're all human, each of us is complex to the point where we don't react the same as the next or previous person does. You have to really meditate and take stock of the cause of pain, and then experiment with different things to mitigate it.

Have you had your thyroid checked and/or adrenal glands checked? I'm reading a very informative book by Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed titled "Stop the Thyroid Madness". All the symptoms you listed sounds like Thyroid issues. I've just been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and have been suffering with your same issues. It is no fun at all!
Sorry TX, I went back and read all of the posts and saw where you do have Thyroid problems. That alone is enough to knock you on your butt. I'm so sorry you're having all those health issues. I'll pray for you to get better.
