ALIUM ALLERGIES?

My entire family can't eat anything in the alium family (onions, garlic, leeks, chives, scallions), whether cooked, raw, pickled, whatever.

Some of us get severe headaches lasting days; I get anaphylaxis which lasts for about 4 days.

None of us are prone to migraines. So far, the only solution is avoidance, which makes eating out very difficult.

Does anyone have a similar problem? One of the worst parts is that no one believes us and thinks we're just being whiny when we ask for alium-free.
