Thanks for you kind and informative words guys. It's nice to know some people are understanding of my annoying limitations.
I'm trying to avoid dairy for a while now just to see if there is any effect on either sinuses or general health.
I think what pisses me off most about this process is just how long it takes to get results. I've always been someone who needs answers immediately so it's all a bit frustrating.
Oh well, chin up, best foot forward and all that bollocks :D

>>34221 As the good grief wrote: if you have issues with new clothing, you should wash them before wearing.

Titanium Dioxide is E171 (regulated in Europe) thus safe. From wiki: "It is widely used to provide whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, plastics, papers, inks, foods, and toothpastes. Used in food applications, it whitens skim milk and adds flavors to soups, beer, and nuts.[61] It is also used in cosmetic and skin care products, and it is present in almost every sunblock, where it helps protect the skin from ultraviolet light."
As with everything it should be used in moderation. So no need for (dietary) supplements.

The common cold/flu is horrible enough but along with your ME it must make it triple worse.


>>34219 I hope you get to feeling better.
Wood burning in a fireplace can also make allergies flare up.
New clothing, especially shirts and pants that have a 'fill' in them (to retain their shape), can cause problems.
Some foods having Titanium Dioxide (ranch dressing) jelly beans (other foods too) containing cellulose, can make us sick.
Even preservatives in breads.
Seems like everything around and in us has some sort of side effect. Some folk aren't born with immune systems as others are.


>>34216 The chemicals sometimes used in the Modal fabric include formaldehyde which is why I have removed it for the time being. I think I'm also suffering a winter bug currently so I'm not sure if I can currently tell if the removal of the Modal fabric is working or not.


>>34208 Have you added any cabinetry to the house or been around treated wood?
I had a friend that bought a new home and was sick all the time (including watery eyes and runny nose). It was the formaldehyde-based glue in the plywood.

I'm sending a masseuse over!

>>34208 A severe case of when fashion tries to kill you.

Take it easy and have someone check up on you from time to time.


Godspeed and strength to you in dealing with this JC


>>34207 Where did you get this picture of me! [looks out of window, closes curtains] ;D

Oddly my ME probably isn't the cause of my current issues. I've had severe inflammation is my sinus for the last year and don't know why, Dr's think it's an alergy or irritation to something I'm constantly surrounded by so I'm trying things out see if I can figure it out. But the last couple of weeks I've been completely flat probably due to some seasonal bug that on top of everything else is just a bit too much. Hopefully some rest will solve that and I'm also hoping I'll figure out the cause of the sinus problem. I've tried a different clothes washing liquid and that hasn't made a noticeable difference, so I'm now trying out the theory that a fabric called Modal in a new duvet I bought a year ago might be the cause. Oddly some people have had major allergic reactions to the material either due to it being made from cellulose from Beech trees or the chemicals used to create the fabric. It's only been a couple of days but I think I might be breathing a bit better. Time will tell...

bummer, dude.


>>34205 "What do you do to elevate the pain/issues?" - Rest, nothing else can be done :/

sorry to hear. And no need to apologize.

What do you do to elevate the pain/issues?
