turn Sorry I haven't been on for awhile. Still trying to figure things out. Still lots of pain and discomfort. D every once in awhile. Went to see an allergist to see if maybe food related no dice there. Allergist said I do have a thing called Pollen Food Syndrome aka(Oral allergy syndrome and possibly defence mechanism disorder.)Going back on the 14th of April to see GI. and hopefully can get some answers (LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!) Colonoscopy on the 26th of January negative for Crohn's.How many colonoscopies did any of you have before a positive result. I've had 3( I don't think the 1st one counts because of the sm. bowel obstruction).

Depending on the severity of your allergic reaction you should talk to your dcotor about carrying an Epi-pen with you at all times. I do, but for bee stings. Also, you should speak to your allergist about any treatment besides staying away from fruits, nuts, some veggies. If I recall they are working on some kind of treatment with shots of pollen to cure Oral Allergy Syndrome. Dont quote me on that please, but I do believe it might be possible
