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:
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?
