Hi Dalene, welcome to the FAS community.  We have many people here with a wealth of allergy experience and knowledge.  What brings you here: do you or someone you love have food allergies?

Hi, this is stormspotter. I知 into severe weather spotting. I also have allergies to peanuts (legumes, too) , soy, sesame , and tree nuts. With peanuts, soy,  and sesame , my asthma gets in on the act. My lips swell, too.  Tree nuts make my nose run and my lips swell.  Sesame makes my lips swell and my asthma kick up, too.  I知 glad I found you guys, trying to figure out these allergies. Hummus started this whole thing off. Nearly passed out after I had it... and used my pen. Was right as rain afterward, I must be blessed. Scariest thing I ever went through, and made sure I told my doctors about it.

Thanks, I知 in the US. I知 interested in tornadoes , and hope one day to take a storm tour to chase these storms. Also dealing with allergies, both the food an environmental allergies... another reason why I want to try chasing by going on a storm chasing tour. I知 a spotter for the national weather service, through their Skywarn program. I知 glad I found you all and thank you for the warm welcome

Stormspotter, I live in a part of the country where tornadoes are pretty rare, but several years ago our area had two microbursts in one summer; we took a direct hit from the first one. What an experience!
