Ephedrine pen... it's a needle pen you stick into your body, usually your leg, that triggers adrenaline to fight the allergic reaction. [I'm not sure if the (?) is bc you don't know what it is or how to spell it... please don't take the wrong way haha] So Benadryl won't work beforehand? :(

Even better, maybe you could try what others have suggested and check out locally-grown and organic foods. :) It very well could be that they won't contain pollens you're allergic to [if indeed it is the pollen], or there could be a pesticide problem. Mostly I've heard of this happening with food pollen allergies.

food pollen allergy is a term i came across while researching it. ive never really talked to a doctor about it. as far as benadryl, we are great friends. but only after the fact when my throat is threatening to close do i start swigging from the bottle. ive mostly learned to avoid the ones that affect me the most. but my mom is swearing i need an eppi-pen (?). @Makyea im not sure i have. but thats an idea! thanks!

Amy it looks like there's a food pollen allergy. :( Unless I'm totally wrong? You know better than I do lol. Here's a link I found from the Mayo Clinic:

Food Allergy

I am sorry your allergic to so many things you like to eat! I have a friend who is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, and pears.... it's a pain finding things to bake for her. heh. What have doctors told you? I don't know if it would be, but has anyone mentioned a dose of Benadryl before eating one of those fruits/veggies as an option?

If I were you I'd keep at least one Epi Pen around while testing different foods. They can save your life. I have one whenever I am out in my garden(We think I have a bee allergy) Anyway good luck, update what works for you:]

our vet gave us an epi pen for our dog after she tried to eat a bee and then couldn't breathe. it scared the crap out of me. i'm so happy we're prepared now.

maybe your reacting to starch? i know when bananas aren't ripe they're full of starch but when they ripen the starches turn to sugar. probably why i like really ripe bananas:)

Amy Lee said:

thanks for the sympathy heather lol. i actually do eat bananas at times but they have to be really ripe. as far as avacado im scared to even touch it anymore! ive had luck with commercially prepared guacamole but if its made with very fresh avocado im miserable!! the watermelon thing really scared me because ive never had such a bad reaction with it. im thinking it wasnt at its ripest and thats what did it :(
