Food Intolerances

Food Intolerances

Hello everyone
I have been suffering for many years the excruciating stomach pain if I eat raw fruits and vegetables such as Avocado, Raspberries, Banana etc. The list keeps on increasing every year and one food item gets added
The pain is a level 9 on a scale of 10 and I feel very flushed, palpitations etc. I believe it is intolerance to these food.
On top I have egg, honey and pine nut allergy.
I have tried to explain this to many doctors over the year but nobody seems to find an answer.

Is There An App On Android Phones To Help Track Foods And Reactions.

Trying to pinpoint what reaction is caused by each thing. We don't have an affirmative diagnosis yet. At least looking at dairy, but could be others as well.

Hi, Is Food Allergy And Food Intolerance The Same Thing?

Hi, Is Food Allergy And Food Intolerance The Same Thing?

I have severe IBS symptoms. Eliminating food that causes reaction for the past 2 months. Notice my nails became extremely brittle, meaning I dont get the necessary nutrients I need.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member said:

Oh how I relate with the severe IBS! Battled it since 1994 and still no relief. I take several vitamins to try to help my body absorb nutrients. I’ve noticed it does help with a bit of energy.

Fragrance Reactions

Fragrance Reactions

I have a comment, not a question. I have several allergies and when a new school year begins w/ meetings, I end up leaving the auditorium because many are wearing cologne and/or perfume. I must sit in the hall because attendance is mandatory and the migraine is just an added benefit to the start of a new school year, every time!

Same with me - to most allergists, I'm not allergic to peanuts, but am sensitive to peanuts. My old allergist (who retired about 10 years ago) said I could include peanuts on my allergy list because… read more

What Is Your Experience With Celery-mugwort Spice Syndrome?

What Is Your Experience With Celery-mugwort Spice Syndrome?

About 20 years ago I had a sudden first-time anaphylactic reaction to something I ate or drank. Allergy testing soon afterward showed pollen sensitivities to birch, sage (aka mugwort), and many grasses, but few food allergies other than mustard (which I tolerate in tiny amounts—good because it hides in everything) and rice (perhaps a false positive?). I was prescribed oral antihistamines (now available over the counter) which I still take daily all year round (alternating every few months so… read more
