Symptoms Of Food Allergies

Symptoms of food allergies can range from life threatening to mild with some not realizing initially that they even have allergies, which is what I experienced.  

I always had seasonal allergies and experienced awful hay fever that accompanies it but never thought I had food allergies until after I took food allergy tests.

Food Allergies Developed Later

After having our second little one, I noticed that I continued to experience stomach pain and could not figure out why.

I continued to eat the same foods prior to giving birth to include almonds, cucumbers, mushrooms, etc. and did not think that eating these foods were causing me to have stomach pain.  

Pain In Stomach 

Severe stomach pain is definitely one of many of my symptoms of food allergies and at times I may have to an antihistamine.  My other symptoms include:

  • horrible gas
  • trapped gas
  • bloating
  • itchy skin rash (eczema)
  • skin breakouts

I really try to limit my antihistamine take but sometimes I must take one to calm my stomach.  

Food Allergy Attacks

My food allergy symptoms have never consisted of me needing to use an epi pen but nonetheless still not a very pleasant feeling.

I really try to avoid the foods that have an allergy towards.

If I don't, I find that my body goes to attack mode.  And attack mode equates to large amount of mucus being produced within my stomach and sinuses and then from sinuses to my ears, mostly my right ear. 

Food Allergy Tests

If you are experiencing ongoing unexplained stomach pain, always consult your physician.  

Also, think about going to see an allergist to have food allergy tests completed.  Your pain could be from the foods that you are eating.

Keep in mind, as it happened to me that food allergies can develop later on in life.  

Food Journal

If you can't make it to an allergist, think about keeping a food journal to help you with determining the foods you may have an allergy towards.
