Burning stomach, once a month or every other month

About once a month I get an allergic reaction type of experience. It usually lasts from 45 minutes to an hour. Typical symptoms are an intense burning of my stomach, like someone is holding a lighter to the lining. The pain is excruciating, and almost feels like a burning hunger. Sometimes my hands and feet get extremely itchy. I usually become light headed and dizzy and come very close to passing out if I walk around. I usually gag and have general stomach upset. If I drink a corn syrup product when I am on my period it is most likely to happen, though it isn't related to cramps, but sometimes it happens randomly or when I haven't had anything to eat or drink for 8 to 9 hours. I'm at a loss to what causes it. I am 20 years old and it has been going on since I was about 12 or 13.
