Sometimes I forget how bad my reactions can be. I eat so well on my low amine diet with all the amines in food kept to a minimum because I choose wisely.
I forgot tonight that it does get bad, and fast, when I stray. I tried out a new BBQ place. I’ve been craving good brisket for a while. Yes, there’s tomatoes, probably some vinegar, too. Both are high in amines. But I’ve been good… How bad could it get?
Well, its just over an hour later and my wrists, elbows, spine, and knees are locked out, swelling, cracking, and sending shooting pains down my nerves every time I move. *sigh* I guess I answered my question. I just hope I will be mobile tomorrow.
So the lesson and recipe tonight is simple:
1) Never underestimate your amine allergy.
2) Don’t stray from a low-amine diet unless you are prepared to handle the consequences.
3) Drink a lot of water and pray for sleep, and for a decent recovery by morning.
Goodnight all, thanks for listening.
