Identified Symptoms - Salicylate Sensitivity
Each of the following symptoms and conditions has been found, in some individuals, to be caused by salicylate intolerance. Please do not assume that just because your symptom or condition is listed that you are salicylate sensitive. As I continuously say on this site - consult your doctor. The primary reason for this list is to give you an idea of the range of symptoms and conditions that can arise.
The symptoms list is divided into two sections: 'Mainly physical' and 'Mind, emotions and behaviour'.
