Patient Comments: Food Allergy - Describe Your Experience

Please describe your experience with food allergy.

Published: June 30

My food allergies start when I eat very spicy Mexican food. First I get gas, then I hear loud noises in my stomach, then I have a severe itch somewhere on my body for a few minutes. Then I get this warm sensation through my body in waves, and my breathing slows down. It's a little hard to swallow.
