I have just read this thread having been a sufferer of allergies my whole life. Last year my allergies took a turn for the worse and I now carry an Epipen , being allergic to cats and peanuts in particular. I have been on an elimination diet for almost 12 months, writing a food diary in the process as I am now reacting to most of the foods I eat , these being very healthy. I was interested to see that someone else has problems with green fruit and veg - these cause many symptoms for me , primarily anaphalaxis . I note that ' white ' veg like cauliflower and cucumber seem ok but spinach , green beans etc cause tingling , burning sensation and then swelling of arms , face etc... I would be interested to hear anyone else's story as this discovery is relatively recent , however the hives like eczema has been a big problem for 5 years and doctors have been dismissive to the point of rude when I have suggested such an allergy. Many thanks.View Thread
