My daughter has anaphylaxis reaction to chickpeas, lentils and peas. We are struggling with gram ( chick pea flour) and pea and lentil protein being substituted for wheat in effort to address gluten allergies. She reacts even if these foods have been prepared in same environment as other food. Ie cooked in same oil in restaurants. She has developed major anxiety about food following 2 anaphylactic attacks recently.

Has anyone had this or know if they really caused by food allergies? We avoid everything my son is allergic to. But the past year has been hectic with multiple admissions intp the hospital due to severe abdominal pains and this is wat they found when the colonoscopy was done. We dont have a definite diagnosis seems more like Crohns but the gastroenterologist thinks its related to his food allergies. Pls see pic below. Thanks
I’ve had itchy mouth, wheezing, instant diarrhea when eating strawberries, although blood testing was negative. Today an apple made me feel light-headed, and “just not right.” My husband thinks it’s just anxiety (maybe it is). Is anyone else affected this way?
How and what steps did y’all start to realize your illness was nothing but a food allergy presenting as another illness. For the past 6:7 years my team of doctors taught it was all GI related
