I have reactions to citrus [I Have Food Allergies]

My tongue breaks out whenever I eat acidic fruit. I love fruit but can’t have much. I am wondering, if my tongue has a severe reaction, do my intenstines have a reaction as well?

Do you get bad reflux, cramps, bloating, or even the runs? Those are the symptoms of gi allergic reactions.

Thank you you! No I don’t. Well acid reflux sometimes. Not often. I’ve learned to eat very little and not near bedtime. @SwampFlower
That's rough, especially if an orange juice lover, etc. I get it too in the throat and mouth.
the inside is affected by it too

They hurt a lot. I get pain in my joints and stomach. The only fruits I can eat without that happening are mango and grapes.

@KuroNeko I can eat grapes, watermelon, pears, apples. It’s mostly citrus. Cantaloupe. It’s kinda strange that a healthy fruit can do that. Maybe it’s the pesticide seeping into the fruit?

@Mindful all bodies are different. Apples are the worst for me and they have that effect even if I grow them myself.

Oh noooooo!!!!you have even tried growing your own!!! I’m so sorry! Take folic acid? @KuroNeko

Definitely sounds like an allergic reaction! My mom has started taking allergy pills so that she can eat without this reaction. I just hate to add another pill to my diet!@Stereoguy
