I'm sensitive to MSG but can handle small amounts (like what occurs naturally in yeast extract). My fiance is allergic to cranberries.

Well, I don't know if I am "allergic" per se, but the two time in my life I have eaten baby corn I have vomited, so I do not eat those suckers!

Husband has a true allergy to corn.

As we've gotten older, we both have problems with cooked bell peppers. I have always gotten headaches from MSG. When we lived on the coast, I was afraid I was developing an allergy to shellfish, and shrimp, but have since moved away, and I guess because I eat less of it, I can tolerate it again. The acid from eating too many fresh tomatoes will break the inside of my mouth out.

I wish I were allergic to just food, in general. I'd even settle for an allergy to chocolate and/or ice cream.

My dad has been getting sick for a while, and breaking out in rashes, too. He swore the rashes were from detergent, and made my mom try every one out there. After going to the doctor a million times, and trying a hundred different creams, they did an allergy test. Turned out he was allergic to pork, chicken, tomato, potato, celery and a few other foods. The getting sick was a part of the reaction, but since they did not know that, everytime he felt sick my mom made him homemade chicken soup! LOL

People who are allergic to a long list of foods freak me out a little. Some of it starts to border on eating disorder.

Quorn. It's no real problem for me because I find the stuff disgusting anyway but if I ever eat it my stomach won't let me forget for about a week!

I'm allergic to my most favoritest thing in the whole wide world...

SHELLFISH

HAppened just about a year ago. Started to go into anaphalxis (cant spell, sorry) and recognized the symptoms (big medical family!).

POpped about 8 benadryl pills and told hubby I had 5 minutes and if my airways didn't start clearing up we were going to the hospital- and FAST.

it worked- went to allergist- got a stash of epi pens.

Man, how I miss my shrimpies. and crabs. and scallops. and lobster......

Onions, especially white onions. If I eat too many I get a migraine headache every single time. Especially from sharp, raw onions, such as having chopped onions on a hot dog or sliced onto a burger.

Sweet onions and cooked onions don't seem to bother me as bad but I still get a headache if I eat more than a few onion rings or one of those blooming onion appetizers. I stinks because I like onions...I love beer-battered onion rings.

Also MSG triggers migraines for me. I get bad migraines from artifical sweeteners too. Especially Nutrasweet/Aspartame but Splenda can do it too. Nutrasweet triggers a migraine every single time, I have to avoid it at all cost. I went on a low carb diet one time and the only diet soda I could drink was diet Orange Sunkist.

I have a friend who claims to be allergic to salad- she can eat tomato slices, or have lettuce on her burger, or salad type things on her sandwiches but she says if she eats *A* salad, meaning, the lettuce with all the raw veggies and stuff you'd eat on a salad, it makes her sick on her stomach. Doesn't make sense to me, if she can eat it as a sandwich it seems the same to eat it as a salad but whatever!
