OK, so you say you have not gotten a diagnosis as to why, just a treatment plan for the problem. Is that the way I am supposed to be reading your message.
I know you have taken away lots of things, but is that because MD's are suggesting allergy?
I have lots of experience with allergy, and it sure isn't what I thought when I first heard our oldest had an allergy.
Have you kept a log of her food intake along with times, and then times of serious problem? Has the MD looked at that log and evaluated it? Our oldest had a corn allergy, corn in all its forms. Our younger son has a sugar enzyme deficiency, which we called an allergy. Our older daughter has a wheat allergy. Our younger daughter has a milk allergy as do I. These are all complicated by less severe allergies. Allergies cause varying degrees of problems with amounts ingested. I can't have any lactose. I have never been able to drink a glass of whole milk, for many years I could have it in things. When I started having digestive problems I never dreamed that after keeping the lactose allergy in check for years, that would be the problem. I now cannot have any, none without symptoms, which are severe bloating, gas, and diarrhea. I did have a lactose tolerance test and I don't recommend that if there is the possibility of the problem. I got pretty sick. It takes about 6 weeks for the allergens to get out of your body. So if you have narrowed done the allergen, and decided it can't be it after a month, you could be wrong just because you didn't wait long enough.
Wheat allergy, and / or celiac disease is common these days. Tests are not conclusive and being your own detective works better.
Someone told me to buy peppermints with real peppermint oil in them and it would help, and doesn't seem like poison, like some other suggestions. They became standard dessert at our house, in my purse, and peppermint tea again with the real peppermint not just peppermint flavor has become a comfort.
Now I will say don't let it ride because the MD has not formed a diagnosis. Don't think she is lying, trying to get out of a chore, or any other myriad of things like I did with our older daughter. She was about 10 when she decided if she ate less, it would not hurt so bad. Yes, we are dealing with anorexia because of it.
Thanks for listening.
