We never put anything together until these past 2 weeks. We are visiting her in Europe, and we have gone out to lunch and dinner with her many times. On 4 occasions she has complained of sudden ear and throat itchiness, a feeling of anxiety, of swelling around her neck, at exactly 1.5 hours after the meal. Each meal had many nuts in the food, and many nuts in the dessert. So I advised her, stop eating nuts. She did, and her sore throats went away. Two days later she forgot and ate tahini and had another bad reaction, like someone put a rope around her throat.
Now she is taking this seriously, and I think back to when she was younger, the worst acne times, and it was whenever she went through a period of eating trail mixes by the bagful, or nut-butter sandwiches.
When I was pregnant with her I noticed whenever I ate pecan pie she kicked violently in my stomach. I didn't think it was a negative reaction, just a reaction. But now I look back I think maybe it was a negative reaction or I sensitized her too soon enough, in utero. Does anyone else have experience like this?
