In Reply to: Oral Allergy - plus throbbing back pain... posted by Mike Pozsgay on July 15, 2000 at 13:21:59:

: I was wondering if anyone has similar symptoms: at first if I ate an apple my lips was itch, and that was annoying but not painful. Now, if I eat an apple, or many other raw fruits, vegetables and nuts (anything healthy?) I sometimes get a sharp pain in my back and slowly comes and goes for about a half to a full hour. I can't figure out any way to make this better, and I need to eat raw foods for my health!!

: Please let me know if you have heard of anything similar...

: Thanks.

Yes, I've had something similar happen to me. It was when I purchased a juicer and juiced an apple, along with about 6 carrots. After 2 nights of drinking one 8oz glass each night, I became allergic to all fruit (not just apples), and carrots. When eating the fruit, I get itchy. When eating the carrots, I feel sharp pains here and there, even on my scalp. At a restaurant I had mixed veg on my plate with a couple slices of carrot, just eating one small slice made me have sharp pains for a couple minutes. I have acquired chemical sensitivities that mostly involves inhaling chemicals (paint, chlorine, etc) - wasn't sensitive to food until the juicing experience, which I think overwhelmed my sensitive bloodstream with those chemicals in those foods. I'm still looking for help, sorry I can't offer advice on what to do. I avoid things I seem to be allergic/sensitive to. Sometimes, if I avoid it totally for a week or more, then try it again, I find I can tolerate it - but sometimes not. Seems to be no rhyme or reason to this condition.
