Unhappy
I know, I know, so bad since I am popping benadryl at least 2 times a week to eat these but a girl gets bred with mango, bananas, watermelon, oranges, and grapes.
I haven't eaten an apple in years. Tried a peach the other day without a benadryl first and swollen eyes, swollen lips, itchy throat and mouth. Blechhhhh!


Have any of you every experimented to see if it's not the actual food product itself, but the additives, artificial flavors, chemicals, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, bactericides, which store themselves in your fat tissue and continue  to poison you long after eating, as well as genetic food modification that may be affecting you?

To the poster above does this happen with organic fruits as well? You may be allergic but you may just as well be suffering from one of the reasons above if its conventional foods and fruit.

*Not singling you out but it's the itchiness of the mouth associated with the skin of the fruit that caught my eye.

Also, (tart) cherry juice is a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory, due to the quercetin flavonoid.

I wonder about this too. When I was younger and on the islands I ate most fruits without any issues that I could remember. Pineapples and kiwis I ate at times, but now older and in the states they give me a bad reaction.
Back home we mostly grew our own foods with nothing on it, so maybe the gm foods or pesticides are giving me issues.Question

Yup happens with organic fruit too. 
I find that when I juice these fruits, (skins and all) I have a little itchiness but not severe like when I eat them whole. 
As well, when they are cooked (into pies, sauces, jams etc) I can eat them without an issue.
The doctor said I am probably allergic to the pollen of the trees these fruits are usually grown on. 

Cherries and cherry juice in general tend to give me an upset stomach but I'll definitely try some before eating fruit and be close to a bathroom just in case, lol.

No gluten products for me at all.
 
I become itchy and bloated.

Doesn't antihistamines and alcohol compound the effect of getting drunk?

The only thing I can think off that doesn't agree with my system is the artificial sweeteners.

I am.  I actually have Celiac Disease.
 
Essentially, I did the process of elimination (with doctors).  I had these weird symptoms that no one could explain.  I saw every doctor possible and none of them could give me an answer.  I eliminated all gluten from my diet.  I haven't attempted to re-introduce it.  I don't think people with CD can, but even if I could (just to try), I wouldn't.  It's not worth getting sick over.
 
I know with my other intolerances it was suggested that I eliminate them and re-introduce them, but I'm honestly too afraid.  It's not worth it IMO, only because of how my body responds to it.

Same for me! I tried removing the skin from apples, so I could eat them, but sometimes I have mild reactions.  
 
It's weird because for the most part I can eat the fruits once they've been processed (apple sauce, sliced, canned peaches, etc), so I don't know if it's the skin or what.
 
I always separated my allergies, intolerances, and sensitives ... but now that I think of it, they're pretty much the same.  In addition to the majority of fruits, aspartame, bananas, cinnamon, and oranges, I'm also sensitive to gluten, dairy (lactose and casein so I don't do dairy at all), raw almonds, red dye, and I believe soy.

How did you find out about this?  Did you take a test at your doctor's office?
I went to an allergist.  I would get the worst migraine headaches ... and I would get them far too often (weekly).  I went to top neurologists in the city and everything was fine.  They couldn't explain the headaches, but they kept prescribing me medication (which didn't work).  My mom made the connection to migraines and allergies.
 
I took a blood test for those.  What exactly it did/does, I'm not too sure.  I just remember receiving a paper with red, orange, and yellow boxes (red = severe sensitivity and avoid; orange = moderate and reduce; yellow = mild and also reduce if necessary).
 
Since learning that, I started to make the connection.  If I mistakenely ate one of those things, the symptoms would instantly come back.
