    Hi mayco82 and lissmeanstrouble!

    Here is some information about diagnosing food allergies that you may both find helpful.

    I hope that some others will chime in with their own experiences as well.

    The bottom line is to find out for sure if you're allergic and what may be triggering the reaction is to see your doctor and be referred to an allergist.

    Please let us know what happens. Others here can definitely use your experiences to help them find their way to relief.

    Take care,
    Olivia
