Avocados! I used to eat them plain with just a little salt, and loved them! But, a few years ago, I started having weird reactions - mainly light headedness/slight dizziness, and a little nausea. Very strange.

I am starting to have a problem with beer. If that's truly the case, then I don't know what I am going to do....

I started reacting to melons, like cantelope, honeydew, watermelon, in junior high.

When I was around 24 I was emergency room allergic to melon!

I was really bummed, as I love it.

Worse, though, is that melon is everywhere !! I can't eat most fruit salads, can't sit in a conference room with leftover breakfast fruit. Have to send back plates that unexpectedly come garnished with melon.

Sad ...

Another is that my partner is allergic to cows milk so I go through a pound of butter in 2 years. I miss it.

For me it is the iodine that is in scallops. I will order them and if I can taste the iodine with the first bit, I have to spit it out immediately. My face and other parts of my body swell up and I become an almost code blue patient in the ER.

I love scallops. If I don't taste any iodine, I will very cautiously eat them. I cut them all into four pieces and eat them very slow. One time when I was dating my second husband, I ordered scallops and that is when the allergy showed up. The restaurant owner took one look at me and called for an ambulance immediatly. I may try to eat them about every two years now.

I'm allergic to seafood (shellfish) but not deadly allergic. I love seafood so I sometimes drink my celestamine and eat some anyway.
I used to be allergic to pineapple and I love the taste but discovered that I am no longer allergic about 4 years ago.

I get ill when I eat very fatty, spicy or acidic foods because of my IBS. Same with white bread and cakes etc. This drives me nuts since I can't really eat anything besides very healthy foods without getting ill and I miss spice!!!!!

Merstar - I think I wouldn't be able to handle that one. I eat at least 5 each week. I'm so sorry! You know what - I got a horrible reaction like you're describing after eating guacamole a friend had made (even saw spots- not like migraine spots...just spots)... turns out it was something like a rancidity of one of the other ingredients.

I'm not allergic to anything, but I'm not supposed to have unfermented soy.

My problem is mostly when a manufacturer changes the ingredients. I used to get President's Choice Italian meatballs and Swedish meatballs. They were tasty and made of real food. Very handy to have in the freezer. Now they contain soy protein. Same with my favourite brand of Jamaican style patties: now they contain soy protein.
