For most of my adult life eating shrimp causes a fibromyalgia flare the next day, but I tested negative for shrimp allergy on traditional allergy testing and Life Extension's Food Safe test. Food Safe says I need to avoid (moderate result) salmon, apricot and cane sugar. What does that mean? What happens in my body when I eat these things?

Thanks,
Elaine

From Michael Smith, MD:

A fibromyalgia trigger is not necessarily linked to theantibody measured for food sensitivities. So it's perceivable that shrimp isyour fibromyalgia trigger but not a food sensitivity. As far as the foods thattested positive, eliminate them from your diet for 2 weeks and then add themback in one at a time and see if symptoms develop.

I researched this more myself. Most shrimp from Asia are toxic: heavy metals and/or sewage, and many contain prescription medicines. I used to love capitalism until I realized it was destroying my health. I miss real food.
