Mango allergy symptoms, but blood test came back negative?

Hello! I recently had what I assumed was an allergic reaction to fresh cut mango. My tongue was tingling on contact with the fruit (which had never happened before). I get very anxious about potential allergies considering that I have had anaphylactic reactions to medications before, so I could be generous and say that the tight chest I had 20 minutes later may have been a combination of anxiety and asthma. But I can't explain away the fact that my tongue was tingling--almost a pop rocks sensation--on contact with it. I had a case of oral thrush at the time although I'm not sure that would affect anything. The blood allergy test I took for mangoes came back negative. Does anyone know how trustworthy those types of results are? Or if there's another explanation for my symptoms?

Oral Allergy Syndrome- called OAS. Also blood tests for allergies are not as sensitive as the skin scratch test. But OAS won't show up in testing because it's not a true allergy.
