Hello,

After now months of being in my words "allergic" to almost everything, but mostly fruits and vegetables many are saying that it's "PHYSIOLOGICAL????"

Has anyone heard of this and what happens next?

It's NOT all in my head, I'm not making these sensations and reactions up??????????

That is horrid! :twisted: I am so sorry that people are being mean and unintelligent about this. I go through it every day I leave my house. I am allergic to just about everything. thisis my list. SHELLFISH. FISH. ORANGES. CARROTS. BANANAS. RICE. TOMATOES. PEACHES. WALNUTS. PORK. FIGS. CINNAMON. SORBIC ACID. POLYSORBATES. BETA CAROTENE. CITRIC ACID. STRAWBERRIES. POTATOES. CLOVE. MANGO. PINEAPPLE. RAISINS. WATERMELON.
it does not include perfumes, scented markers, gum in others mouths, candles and room freshoners as well as cleaners. I have reacted to ALL of those as well.

Most people sadly even family members who have not seen my anaphylaptic reactions think it is all in my head. Even though I now have to carry a ebulizer around with 24/7 everywhere I go I still get unbelievers. I wish it was different but its not its the sad state of human stupidness. :oops: I have learned to ignore it as best I can and go cry elsewhere. My mother was a doubter untill she watched me cough and hack for breath as my face swelled in a grocery store. :roll: What can ya say? Except blow them the razberries as you pass.

HUgs and It does get easier though it does tend to be a roller caoster ride you long to get off.

When the mrdical community can't find an answer, "Psychological" is an easy way out.
I think the correct term is idiopathic, and no, it doesn't mean the Dr's an idiot (but we could imply if he was to use the psych' easy way out...)
