I was wondering if there is anybody who started to develope asthma and food allergies in their 30's?  I had minor allergies as a kid, but this last year it has been terrible.  I have been having respiritory allergies and food allergies to things I have inhaled and eaten my whole life. My family is tired of my complaining but this is a real problem for the people who have it. oh yeah it started last year with a trip to my primary physican because I had chronic cough and rapid heart rate. Well of course he was extremely concerned with the heart rate and not the cough. He sent me home with antibiotics and heart meds. AT 30? I didn't take the heart meds and had a trip to the ER the next week w/rapid heart rate and breathless. Lung Dr. did tests and turns out it was asthma caused by severe dust mite allergy. And my primary Dr. was gonna put me on heart meds WHat? Anyway my breathing improved some by getting rid of old mattress, removing carpet, removing curtains anything that collects dust.  But within the year I started having lung reactions after it eat bananas, pecans, maple syrup, lemons, pineapple and the list is getting longer. My fam thinks im crazy about the food thing but im not, its real.

I too had sudden sensitivity to everything. My allergist did a blood test (ANA) on me to see if my body is allergic to itself. I did get a positive reaction. He sent me to a rhuematologist who did further testing and diagnosed and autoimmune disease called Lupus.

Any doctor can do the ANA test and if you get a positive reaction you'll be sent on to the specialist.
