    I am not sure how to start this journey.  I ended up here after doing a 2 week detox as a jump start to turning my health around. As I tried to add back in grains (quiunoa, rice, etc not wheat), I soon had inflammation,  edema, and muscle aches. My GI symptom is constipation unless I am heavy on the magnesium citrate.

    I had allergy testing about 20 years ago when I suspected peanuts were causing migraines. I remember testing positive for histamines and chicken (yeah who does that?)  Peanuts do cause migraines and dairy causes horrible eczema. I suspect a gluten allergy/sensitivity caused my edema six years ago (my right calf often looks like I have a major DVT going on —just the right one.) I now have a DX of lipedema with possible secondary lymphedema.

     

    So my question is: What do I do to get DX? – I have read about the DNA testing, but if I get that then what? How do I find a doctor who knows what to do? who will respect the testing and get me to where I need to be? I am struggling as I feel if I say “gluten sensitive” without a doctor’s note I will be accused of jumping on the media diet sensation bandwagon.

     

    Any advice would be welcome.
