Stomach pains from bananas?

My husband, within the past year or so has noticed if he eats bananas (mostly if our toddler son doesn't finish his and he will take the last few bites) that he gets horrible stomach pain about an hour later. So he stopped eating them. What's funny is that my sister has the same problem and did a little research and found that avocados can have the same effect on her.
We had dinner tonight and I got my husband a salad from Panera. He ate it and about an hour later said "that salad is really making me not feel well" Then it hit me that it had avocados on it! He's had really bad stomach cramping and says it feels just like when he eats bananas. He's also been burping REALLY bad, like a bear growling lol I feel really bad for him and my sister said there really isn't anything to relieve the symptoms except vomiting (he said he kinda feels like it, but doesn't want to make himself do it)
The connection I find online between bananas and avocados is latex. He's not allergic to condoms, gloves, band-aids etc. Can one have an allergy to latex if it's ingested, but not if it's touching their skin??

Re: Stomach pains from bananas?

I think this is fairly common, it's not necessarily a full blown allergy but for many people it's more of an intolerance to bananas. I get the same thing with bananas and with kiwi fruit and haven't eaten either of them in years. I don't have an allergy to latex either but if I eat bananas or kiwi, I get such terrible stomach pain it's almost unbearable.

That's what he and my sister both said, its like doubled over stomach pain. I guess we just know for him not to eat either. I hope my son doesn't inherit it
