I'll try to make this as short as possible. Today is one of those days when you just don't think you can take anymore. My ds had no allergies until the age of 6. Then we found out that he had a Peanut Allergy. We kind of suspected that one because he would throw up after eating PeanutButter. After we found out about the PA, we then had him tested for Tree Nuts. We found out he was allgergic to Hazelnuts. At this time we had him tested for Peas, just because he always gaged on them, and a mother just knows. We found out that yes he was allergic to peas. Now 4 months latter after dinner, his throats starts to close up, he was having a cheeseburger, and some of his sisters clam chowder. I immediatly thought the sesame seeds on top of the burger. But he has eating sesame seed many many times. So we have him tested again. So last friday we go for the skin test for sesame seeds, and I just ask if they can throw in clams just incase, the nurse then ask me what else do I want tested, and I tell her to just let test for all seafood, and strawberry's. I figure those are the big ones and I just want to know. She asks me if I want to test tuna. I say no he eats tuna fish at least 3-4 times a week. So we finish the test and he is allergic to seasame seeds, and all Shell Fish. How can he be allergic to shellfish, he just had last week shrimp and scallops? He tested positive for all shellfish but not for any other fish. So today I give him a tuna fish sandwich for lunch and his throat closed up again. He is fine now, I gave him the epi pen and called 911, but we are so lost now. How can be eating all of these foods one day and then the next be allergic to them. All of this has happend to us in the last 5 months. We are scared to feed him everyday now. It just seems like he is becoming allergic to everything that he eats. Any thoughts? Why is this happening?
