Allergy or Intolerance?
Pretty graphic details, read if you'd like to help me
[2 years ago I ate some salsa. It was delicious, my boyfriend had some with me. Within 5 minutes of eating the salsa my stomach -the area under my boobs- started swelling. My boyfriend had no reactions to the salsa.
30 min after consuming the salsa, I started to puke uncontrollably. My vomit was black. I puked for 2 hours. Then I got diarrhea so bad that it was just a clear liquid. That lasted for another couple hours.
I was unable to lay on my back or side following this scenario. My stomach was so bloated that it protruded past my C-cup boobs.
Someone mentioned that I might be allergic to a spice that was in the salsa... They suggested that I may be allergic to cumin. I know that cumin is in curry. Whenever I eat curry I get diarrhea, but not to that degree. That night with the salsa was so bad I literally thought I was going to die.]
Anyone know what my problem might be?
I don't know how to find out if it's an allergy... but I never want that experience again.
