Food Allergy Tests
May Determine The Source
of Your Stomach Pain

Food allergy tests may not be something that people think about having done when they are experiencing constant stomach pain.  

Always consult your doctor if you are having severe pain.

Newly Developed Food Allergy

When I continued to have constant stomach pain for a few years, I never thought it could be from the foods I was eating since I never had food allergies before.  

After having our second little one, my body did a major shift to include developing an allergy towards food that I was always able to eat before.

I developed an allergy towards almonds, chocolate, yes chocolate! among other foods which I found out through allergy testing.

By reading different articles and talking to others, I've heard when the body goes through a major change or shock, that a new allergy towards something can possibly form throwing the body out of whack.  

Symptoms of Food Allergies

Symptoms can vary from each individual.  For me my symptoms include:

  • tickling of the lips, throat
  • slightly swelling of the throat
  • horrible stomach gas
  • bloating
  • food allergy rash (eczema)
  • diarrhea

Initially when experiencing these symptoms, I did not know they were due to an allergy towards a food.  

I had so many ideas of what it could possibly be to include irritable bowel disease but finally knew exactly what it was after my food allergy testing was completed and by doing some additional research on my own.  

If you are also experiencing stomach pain like I did, having an allergy testing completed may provide you with some answers.  

Food Allergy Tests With Your Allergist

When I had my test completed at my allergist, the nurse administered pricks (not too bad but mostly irritating) to my back to check for allergies towards nuts, dairy, chicken, barley certain fish, fruits and vegetables to include but not limit to:

  • plums
  • peaches
  • apples
  • cantalope 
  • carrots
  • celery, etc.
  • I was shocked to discover the amount of allergies I had.   

    Squeamish About Seeing An Allergist?

    If you are a bit apprehensive about going to pay an allergist a visit, there are a few things you can do at home.

    1. Start journaling  your foods.
    2. Eliminate dairy and nuts for 30 days and then reintroduce one at at time.
    3. Take note when your lips start to tinkle or when you experiencing the type of stomach gas that literally clears the room.  :)
