New Allergies

Sunday, December 22, 2013

So since Demetri was born I have developed allergies to things I've always loved. I am now allergic to peanuts, walnuts, and cashews. All my favorite. I get seasonal allergies, which I've never had until now. God knows what else I'm allergic to. I find it interesting that I am allergic to peanuts because I can eat peanut butter all day long and nothing happens. When I eat them out of a can or in M&M's, my mouth breaks out in sores. Same with walnuts and cashews. I did read somewhere that you can be allergic to the casing that the nut has around it when you crack the nut. So I'm not too sure if it is the casing that I'm allergic to or the actual nut itself. Whatever it is I want it gone!!!!! emoticon

    Be careful, some of these allergies are very dangerous. Please think about seeing an allergist. You can find out exactly what the problem is, you can take preventive measures and maybe get some relief. Good luck.

    I just have to say that I used to have horrible spring allergies, sneezing and coughing etc when things would start to bloom. After I had my kids, they all went away!! Go figure!!

    I would stop eating peanut butter ASAP it will eventually happen and this is nothing to play around with we had a friend that was seeing a woman she had a allergy to nuts and they told her it gets worse with each attack and that her next attack might be fatal.
    She went to a retirement party with him and didn't know that a piece of cake had hazelnut frosting, she told bf she wasn't feeling well and then her throat started closing up and her head grew 2 sizes larger then it should be.
    He stopped at a fire station because he was so far away from a hospital they tried to help her she ended up in a coma and dying the very next day!
    She left behind a broken hearted bf and 2 little girls! Take this seriously STOP EATING THE PEANUT BUTTER.....

    I know the feeling! It wasn't pregnancy though, that induced mine. Oddly enough it was an extremely stressful situation. It caused me to break out in hives, and along with that came allergies. But apparently Im allergic to EVERYTHING! It sounds and feels like I have a sinus infection EVERY DAY. Weird how things in life can trigger allergies!

    Hope you find some answers!
