I've healed myself of a dozen major tms symptoms in the past year by reading the books (back/foot/neck pain, photophobia, tinnitus, interstitial cystitis, toothache, carpal tunnel, cold urticaria etc). Before that though I developed an allergy to spinach that left me with red hive welts around my eyes and I caught cold after cold after cold. I removed spinach and got better. I still have this allergy and now seem to have a new allergy I can't identify (more welts) that is depleting my immune system again and I've had a cold for a full month. I am in a majorly stressful period of life so tms symptoms wouldn't surprise me however unlike when I get pain and say "no, you're tms", I don't know with this one. So I've been very sick for a month. Any insight greatly appreciated.
