I am posting this in the fibro thread and not an allergy thread because I think having fibro makes one more prone to allergies, and the effects might last longer. So I am hoping someone in the fibro group can help!
Yesterday I ate an orange. It wasn't long before my tongue started itching. Then my throat started feeling weird. I took a Benadryl strip and tried to relax. I've never had problems with orange juice. But I have had itchy tongue from fresh pineapple and I think watermelon.
Now, not quite 24 hours later, my throat still feels irritated. A pressure almost (Similar to the GERD-related pressure, such as after ate a tortilla chip the wrong way and it was like this for a few weeks).
I know I should get tested for allergies, but until then
-anyone else have citrus allergies?
-anyone else get this throat feeling after an allergy attack and it takes longer to recover?
-does this mean I can't take Vitamin C?
