Have been getting bad side effects after eating chocolate & am also suffering with itching rashes on body headaches
This is Dr. David

I am sorry about the nerve damage to your body

you could be allergic to chocolate or the caffeine in chocolate which can cause bad side effects and headaches.

you might need to avoid chocolate to prevent these effects from happening

there are alleryg and immunology doctors who can perform skin testing to set for sure if you are allergic to certain foods like chocolate.

sometimes antihistamine medications like diphenhydramine (benadryl) can block or decrease some of the body's allergic type reactions. this is an over the counter medication you can buy a the pharmacy.

it doesn't sound like you have seen an allergy doctor yet. I would recommend that. ask your GP doctor to refer you to see an allergy doctor for food allergy testing

let me know if you have other questions.
