I think I may have some food allergies I should try to learn more about. Over the last few years I have become sensitive to eating bananas and avocados. My symptoms began a few years ago with feeling stomach cramps, and then progressed to severe stomach cramps along with a heartburn type of feeling. I've been avoiding both foods but with DS starting solids I've been preparing them for him and they're so yummy it's hard to resist a taste. Yesterday I had a tiny piece of banana and my tongue started burning! I got online and started searching around for information about banana allergies and learned that it is common for people allergic to both bananas and avocados to have an allergy to latex as well! Because all three have some protein in common. This made me very concerned and I started to wonder if I should see an allergist to get my allergies (seasonal and food) identified and know if there are any precautions I should be taking. I'd rather do this proactively than have an anaphylactic reaction to a balloon somewhere, you know? I'm looking for any suggestions on what type of practitioner to see. I don't have a regular doctor and don't ever go to doctors so I don't really know where to start. TIA!
