allergies, asthma, joint problems, migraines and digestive problems

I have been suffering since birth from allergies (many) and asthma and for the last 15 years from stomach, intestinal (IBS like), and joint problems. Just recently I have started having migraines on top of it all. It gets worse as I get older (35). None of the various doctors have treated any of the problems as if they were related. I currently take several prescription medications, none of which work particularly well. I am convinced it is all connected as it all becomes worse during the peak allergy seasons (like now). I have requested referrals to see allergy and GI specialists but I don't really know what I am looking for other than a possible untreated food allergy. (I have a history of positive food and drug allergy tests.) Does the combination of manifested problems throw up any red flags to you that I could bring up for discussion during upcoming consultations?

Probably you are looking for cats at the dog pound by going to mainstream doctors. There certainly is a core issue/connection in what you describe, it is not likely to be dealt with by those doctors. The core issue is the immune system and the fact that it is both immature and dysregulated. You probably were not breast fed for very long as an infant and you probably also have a load of dental amalgam along with a damaged digestive system. (All these items are intimately related and typically present together in the same person). I cannot tell you how to deal with these doctors, nor can I tell you how to make Pima indians understand Latin. You may have to back up a step and find the right doctor as mainstream medicine is notoriously inadequate to the task you are about to present to them. They will simply whip out their Rx pads as that is what they know how to do. Read here for starters:
