I was recently tested and found out I have a soy allergy among other things.My question to fellow sufferers out there is do you get facial pain? I get it pretty bad below each ear and in my maxillary sinuses. I also have a dust mite allergy which compounds my problem .Also can a soy allergy cause muscle pain and tension or is it the histamine release that is the causing factor? I have received little guidance from my allergist/ENT/ or doctor,more a good luck pat on the back and thanks for your money send off. I just tend to think at this point my body is over loaded with histamine yet I have little knowledge on how to deal/compensate for this??

Where you prescribed an auto-injector of epinephrine? Where you given a list of foods to avoid?

I've not heard of facial pain but perhaps they are related. Coulld it be sinus pressure from inflamation? You can ask the allergist for another appointment. If you say it's for a consultation you can probably be sqweezed in between other patients tests.

Hi LP, Nice to meet you. I've got adult-onset soy allergy as well.

If you are fully avoiding soy now, you shouldn't be having any issues that relate to it. However, if you're not reading all ingredient labels and fully avoiding, you likely would get exposures and could have sinus inflammation (or other) symptoms

Soy is tricky to avoid - shows up in everything from crackers and breads to soups and sauces. Read more about where it is (and why that is) in our soy/legumes allergy section: http://allergicliving.com/index.php/cat ... allergy-2/

If you are fully avoiding soy, I'd look elsewhere regarding these symptoms. Facial pain that relates to the sinuses is fairly common with environmental allergies to dust mites, pets, etc.
If your doctor thinks that's the issue, you may want to look into barrier bedding in the bedroom if you haven't. And a good quality air purifier. They do help.
