I wear contacts, and when my histamine level rises, one of the symptoms is how strange my eyes feel. They almost feel like they’re swelling from the inside.
I’ve done the research and learned that the sclera (the membrane that covers the whites of the eyes) and the inside of your eyelids are lined with mast cells. Mast cells, when aggravated by an allergen spill histamine.
So there you are. Itchy, burning eyes are a prime symptom of histamine overload. Or in my case, my eyes feel fat. They don’t get visibly swollen. They just field weird.
I’m mentioning this now because I just ate an Entemann’s powdered donut and not only is it not on the safe food list, I don’t even think there’s food in it. I know I shouldn’t have, but there it was, sitting on the table at my folk’s house. And within minutes…fat eyes. So I drove home and took my contacts out and took a Quercetin. Now my eyes burn but they don’t feel fat anymore.
Tomorrow…strict safe foods only!
