allergies... is this possible?
January 23, 2013 at 8:16 PM

first of all i have a doctor appt. for next week (soonest i could get in) however i think i am allergic to carrots, potatos and tomatos. 

is it even possible? i have ate them my whole life. now for the last couple of months whenever i eat them within hours my lips mouth and face swell really bad. 

at least this seems to be what causes it. 

i had a baby 5-6 months ago if that makes any difference. 

the only other thing i was thinkin was a thyroid issue....

any opinions or thoughts. im stressing myself out lately with this.

    Yes, it is possible, especially after having a child.

    My allergies go into overdrive when preg... likely something to do with high hormone levels.

    My food coloring sensitivity first revealed during a pregnancy.

    Having a child can completely change your body in a multitude of ways.  Everything from your skin and hair to your bones and joints is effected by having children.  A lot of women have medical issues that "pop up" after having children, or their prior conditions can get significantly better or worse.  I would trade your food allergies for my post-baby medical problems any day.

    At the end of my pregnancy I developed high blood pressure that I still have 5 years later.  I found out that I had PCOS, which they said I would have had prior to pregnancy, but pregnancy brought out all of the symptoms.  Plus, It made my psoriasis worse.  Unrelated, as far as I know, I also have allergies and chronic sinus infections.  I feel like I am falling apart :(

     I developed tree nut allergies after having my oldest. Every time you're exposed puts you one step closer to a severe anaphylactic shock. Avoid what you think might be triggering your allergy.
