Has Anyone Ever Suddenly Developed A Food Sensitivity?

Has Anyone Ever Suddenly Developed A Food Sensitivity?

I am on Prozac and Neurontin for Fibromyalgia and CRPS. I have recently (within the last couple months) become sick every time I eat meat. I realize I should go to the doctor but it usually takes a bit to get an appointment, and I'm sure they will want to run a million tests. Being a human pin cushion with tests run all the time, I'd like to avoid as much as possible. So I was just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced anything like this...

Sensitivities can come on quite unexpectedly. For me it started with makeup, so I stopped wearing it. Then it was perfumes and body lotions, then it was bath products, then the smell of candles, then music, then going to the movies, then too many people talking at once, it goes on and on and on. I feel like I need to live naked in a bubble, and even then I would be asleep most of the time.

Have been eating less and less food for year's now.. Meat being the first to stop on my list... Started I couldn't pat out a hamburger and then eat it if I had to touch it eew now the smell of it cooking ,or the touch of it in my mouth oh no .. And chicken in any shape or form ,I can do bacon sometimes , just depends on the day and my tolerance for it that day ,good luck it doesn't get better.. Hugs to all

I'm starting to notice a revulsion to certain meats. I thought it was just me. Sometimes I can eat out of house and home. Others that same food may make me nauseous. It can be texture, smell, taste etc. I never know. Some days I exist on next to nothing.

I'm shocked. I have developed aversions to a few foods, including meats. Only occasionally eating meat if I have the odd craving. I also have developed a complete aversion to garlic. Just the smell of something cooking with garlic sends me running. I used to love Italian food, but now the blander the better. Thank you for bringing this out - I also thought it was just me.

It may be the type of meat you are eating. Try organic grass fed beef or organic free range chicken. Make sure the chickens are not being fed corn or soy. It could be a secondary reaction to what the animal has eaten. Look local and find a farmer who you trust and give that a try. Or you could go plant based like me and get more than enough protein from bean, nuts, seeds and such! Either way good luck
