My PCP is wanting me to see an allergist b/c she prescribed an epi-pen because I had a reaction to a drink (coconut water w/ pink guava). My tongue swelled, the whole shebang.
I have felt like I have some kind of allergies that we don't know about. I get a lot of headaches, sickness, stomache problems, , a lot of which can't really be explained and I have A LOT of medication allergies. Also, I always feel like my tongue is too big for my mouth...if that makes any sense.
I have seen an allergist once or twice and had the basic test and scratch test wich showed just some seasonal/dust/pollen allergies and I have to be careful with Red Food dye 5, but not all red stuff....
I was wondering, what are some questions I should ask him? Are there test I should ask for?
Can you have an intollerance to something but it not be an official allergy?
I really don't want to take any extra meds so hoping just to learn what to stay away from.
