Peanut Allergy Causes Chronic Pain

5/15/2017:  Peanut Allergy Causes Chronic Pain

Even if people don't go into anaphylaxis, chronic pain can be a result of food allergies according to a study conducted by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute at the Melbourne Royal Children's Hospital in Autralia.  The study followed thousands of children since they were one year old through ten years old.  Researchers have found that while many children grow out of their food allergies after they reach the age of four, babies and toddlers can spend their early lives in pain without their parents knowing the specific cause. For example, one child had peanut butter for breakfast every morning, then once that was eliminated the pain the child felt went from 70% to 10%.
