Actually, most of my allergies were discovered before I ever had any testing done, based on symptoms. The Sensitivities were partially discovered by trial and error, and partially by testing. There are a number of different ways to get tested, but the blood tests (IgE and IgG) are the simplest and least subjective. Yes, I had to get a referral to see an Allergist because my insurance requires it. Take care,
