In Great Britain, there’s a boy called Finley Ranson who can’t eat anything except boiled hard candies. Other products cause him to bleed. To supply Finley with protein, vitamins, and other useful substances, he has to be tube fed up. This strange reaction is caused by a severe allergy. In this article, we’re going to tell you about some other weird allergy symptoms — don’t worry, they aren’t as frightening as Finley’s.
8. Stomach cramps
Sudden acute abdominal pain may indicate that a person suffers from ulcers, appendicitis, cholecystitis, kidney stones, or other dangerous diseases. If cramps and aches aren’t that severe and occur right after eating certain dishes, you might have a food intolerance or an allergy.
The symptoms of these diseases usually resemble some digestive problems: stomach ache, diarrhea, and bloating. But there are some features that indicate you’re definitely facing an allergy:
- Rashes or itchy areas on the skin, especially around the mouth;
- Swelling of the tongue, lips, mouth, or throat (10-15 minutes after eating or immediately after);
- Breathing problems;
In many cases, a food allergy is caused by peanuts, eggs, milk, fish, seafood, crustaceans, soy, and wheat. If you experience abdominal pain after eating these (or any other) products, temporarily exclude them from your diet.
