Today i walked like crazy. Bathed myself in the sun for that vit D. Then played soccer a bit. Went window shopping and to my surprise found gluten free treats in several supermarkets close to home. So I cheated with a gluten free chocolate rugelech (http://www.katzglutenfree.com/Chocolate_Rugelech_Gluten_Free_p/1064.htm) and this peanut bar. About an hour after eating them I started getting a crazy headache. Im just not sure if it was the food or because of the headers during soccer(since i hardly play nd am not used to it). My nose is also stuffed and my left ear also..Cant penetrate it much with q-tips..cant hear much either through that side..its stuffed..This is definitely a food reaction, no? But thing is ive ate this treat before(the rugulech thingy)..Must of been the peanuts? Coud it have been the tapioca cross reacting since i have hashimotos? Any thoughts? This' making me uneasy. The left side of my throat also kinda hurts.
I wear earplugs to bed (boyfriend snores) and get this occasionally when they get inflamed. I clean them out with alcohol and lay off the plugs for a few days and it goes away on its own. Yours may be more serious and since you haven't experienced this before (also, the sore throat is worrisome) you should see an ENT about it.
