Last night almost killed me. You’ll see the last thing I ate was apples and cinnamon cooked in coconut milk. Very yummy. I got very itchy and broke out in some hives shortly after that, and I’ve been very itchy this last week (although I hadn’t had hives). I’ve been blaming too much fruit consumption, as I believe I have issues with high histamine foods. Here’s the problem. Apples are low in histamine, as is coconut milk, but cinnamon is high. Here’s the big kicker: I woke up this morning with significant pain in my wrists, base of my fingers, and shoulders. To add to it, I took a shot last night, which usually kicks in rather quick for me. This means something, but I don’t know what. I’ve never linked itch/hives to my pain before, but I think there’s a connection here. Cinnamon? Coconut milk? Ugh, issues with either of those would be very sad. I’d love some thoughts here. I could probably take out cinnamon pretty easily. Coconut milk would be hard. Oh, and I broke out in hives before my shot, so I don’t think there’s a connection there. Comments are most welcome!!
