Hi, I'm Walrus.  I have had allergies since I was a kid but I'm not sure how severe they are anymore because I've been so good at avoidance for so long it just doesn't come up until recently as my baby starts eating more solid foods and running into allergens of mine that I struggle to cook for him.  Glad to find a resource like this.

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!

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.

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.

Welcome MamaDee - I'm also in a suburb of Atlanta (Marietta) and have a daughter with allergies to sunflower (as well as soy and tree nuts) plus two kids with other allergies.  The irony is not lost on me that she is allergic to the alternative product so many use for peanut and tree nut allergies or that many of the allergy safe alternatives such as Enjoy Life are unsafe for her.

I highly recommend Seidu or Rezvani who seem to be the two allergists in our area that understand food allergies.

Welcome MamaDee!

Sunflower can be challenging because it痴 not one of the 釘ig 8.  Wenhave several members here who deal with it, so I知 sure they will be helpful.

How is the little guy today?  How soon are you able to see an allergist?
