I just went to the doctor who stated that I was having an allergic reaction. I had an IgE test result of 201. I have been having a reaction when eating solid food. I had a food allergy panel done which came up negative. I can't see an allergist for two weeks.

Welcome Anon!

I hope that you are doing okay today and am sorry that you have to wait so long. Please let us know how you are and have you had allergies in the past? Starting a food journal to pinpoint what your triggers are may be a good idea while waiting for your appointment. We look forward to hearing more. Take care.

Sorry you're having problems. Allergy testing for food is not the most reliable, many allergists have patients follow an elimination diet to determine what's causing the problem. What type of symptoms are you having? You say solid foods, are there particular ones that seem to cause trouble?
