First time posting, but I'm looking for some background info to research before I head down the specialist / allergist path.
Throughout most of my life, I have had some strange food sensitivities come and go. For example:
- Egg allergy as a child. Went away at some stage during primary school and only returned recently (I'm 32) after completing a body-building challenge where I ate 6+ egg whites every morning for 3 straight months.
- Cow's milk protein allergy as a baby. Went away until well into late 20's, then came back with a vengeance (excruciating stomach pain for hours). I don't quite get this one, as I can have yoghurt, sour cream, ice cream, custard etc until the cows come home, but not milk. I can also have Lactose-free milk, so go figure. I can also have dishes that have cooked milk.
- Recently developed sensitivity to Avocados. Similar stomach pain to milk but shorter in duration.
- Recently developed sensitivity to Bananas. Similar type of stomach pain to milk but far less painful.
Could these be related in any way?
