Hi difeterci2, welcome to the forum.

Lots of us have food allergies or intolerances. Do you have something specific or are you just trying to figure out what yours are?

You can look up specific foods in the search box at the top of the page. There are many threads there that will help you.

If you don't know what foods to blame I suggest trying to keep a good food journal. After you find out some general foods, such as a hamburger, then you can do "food challenges" to see which ingredient in the food was the problem. Look these terms up in the search box also.

It took me going to 2 allergists to find someone who helped me find out I don't tolerate foods that are not on the scratch test. Then I was instructed to do the journal and challenges. Some of my docs still don't believe I have a big problem with sulfites, but I could prove it by drinking a glass of wine, and then go to the ER.

Best wishes. Keep in touch.

Obviously, I can't type whilst on a phone.

I have noticed with me certain foods actually trigger my migraines. I took a note pad from the Dollar Tree and wrote "Food/Drink" on the outside. I recordered the day, date, time, what I ate and drank and then if a migraine came I wrote that down too on the proper date, time so on. Every Friday I sat down and looked for when a migraine would start that week and look for something common. That next week I'd eliminate one thing only from my diet and see if I got a migraine. I'd add it back on the third week seeing whats happening with me. Because I did that I have found I get a migraine from too many bananas, too many chocolates (which is funny cuz I'm not much of a chocolate eater unless its just that one week of a month) and too much soda triggers those migraines. Because a migraine occurs it doesn't mean its a food allergy. It just is a trigger. More like an intolerance. Allergy to food or drinks is like you give hives or your airway closing because of how swollen it is (sorry I can't spell the word I want)
