Yesterday afternoon I went to get the allergy skin testing for wheat and soy. There were two sets of test. The first tested both along with a saline and histamine control "prick" on my arm. The first did not show anything for wheat, and it had a slight showing for soy. Not sure if it was enough to warrant "allergy" rating. Then the second set of punctures was fresh wheat and fresh soy, and I had no allergic reaction to either. That leaves me in a soy conundrum. Am I or am I not? Unfortunately, I do not have a follow up on this til August, though I am sure the doc will look at it and get back to me. The nurse performing the ordeal, I mean the tests, said he may request an oral test, and I don't mean spelling out loud. Typically I guess it means ingesting the culprits.
So for now, my hubby is cooking with wheat again, although I am scared to eat it. I know my stomach hurts after soy, so I will still avoid that til I have a better idea about it.
Meanwhile, I totally avoid eggs since I know that allergy is true.
Off to rest. I am exhausted after working 6 hours today, and having a rough night sleeping last night (I slept, just kept waking with back pain).
Today I managed to walk 3 miles, including stairs! Go me!
