Re: Anyone here have Food allergies that cause sinus symptoms?

I have never been tested for food allergies but I need to be. I know I'm allergic (not lactose intolerant) to milk. I love milk but rarely drink it because it makes my sinus drainage so bad I almost choke. I only drink milk when my sinuses are not already being a bit bothersome. I've heard before that milk has something in it that makes your body produce more mucus but I've only heard it once and never again so I don't know if it's true or not. (Note: I have no problems with milk as far as my stomach is concerned.)

There's also something else that I eat that I know I am allergic to but haven't quite pinned down what it is. A lot of times when I get through eating I start coughing cause my sinuses start draining. This happens a lot and I'm still not sure what it is.....
