I told her to take pictures to other doctors, because I'm not sure.

It's been a long time since this was originally posted...I hope "someone" reads this. I have MCS and one of the things I realized was I'm sensitive to plastics (actually, anything that's a petrochemical in any form).
If anyone has a baby like this one, then never use plastic when feeding. No plastic baby bottles, no plastic utensils, no plastic dishes. Never microwave in plastic or use pans with "Teflon" type coatings. Try not to store leftovers in plastics. If you buy a product that's stored in plastic (and most things are), get the largest container possible (this includes yogurts, etc.). And, never ever drink water from a plastic bottle!!!
GERD has been linked to plastics. I developed throat polyps and was told I needed surgery. After I stopped using plastics in any form, the polyps went away.
