I’m hoping for some help on an issue apparently inflicting my brother. I’m not so sure he isn’t just imagining this stuff, or overtired or eating himself into a food coma, but he swears that lactose, gluten and chicken all make him “foggy.” He also says medications - he also has ADD, but says this food stuff happened well before he was on any meds - hit his brain extremely quickly compared with “normal” people. His description is that it seems like he has a ridiculously fast metabolism – which does not appear to be the case based on our family and his body – so he feels medications and sugar very quickly in his brain.
He has recently come to this conclusion that he has a brain allergy without any physical manifestations that you might see in Celiac’s Disease or with lactose intolerance. His only complaint is “fogginess” that “clouds his brain” quickly after eating these foods.
My brother is a smart guy, in college, with a high IQ, but sometimes I swear he is an idiot. He says he is going to talk to someone about this “soon.” So I was really just hoping to hear from people if they have any experience with food allergies in the brain, have even heard of brain food allergies, if they might have any other theories I can take to him, or even a type of specialist he should talk to.
