Asthma/allergy reaction to anything sweet

Does anyone out there suffer from progressively uncontrollable asthma from eating anything sweet? It seems to be a cummulative reaction - I get away with eating small amounts of fruit or honey for a few days & then if I persist it all starts to go downhill. Alongside the asthma I also get an allergic sinus reaction & nose bleeds, & if I really over do it I also get bleeding sores on my scalp, severe nightime restless legs syndrome, hives, insomnia, IBS, coughing up blood & depression.
I'm not diabetic, but do have alot of severe food intolerances (not quite the same an a true allergy-but equally devastating) I also cant digest gluten at all, & have bad reactions to any chemicals (E-numbers), MSG, Wine, beer, Gin(really bad), Cider, fruit, honey, anything starchy including potatoes, anything fermented, tea, coffee, lactose & I also have a low level of salicylate intolerance.

Oh, sounds like you have Multiple Chemical Senstivity (MCS), too.  That part I can relate to.  

I'm not sure why your reactions to the smallest amounts of carbs and natural sugars.  However, I do know that carbs become sugars in the body and sugar will cause inflammation and inflammation aggravates allergies.  You probably know this.  And, no, you don't have to be diabetic to have this problem.

I encourage you to Google the words Tyramine Intolerance.  The information I found doing this helped somewhat, as many of those foods and drinks are problems for me, too, because of Tyramine Intolerance.  I can't touch alcohol, potatoes, anything fermented, MSG or tea either.  And, coffee---only sometimes.  If you have a salicylate intolerance, avoid all NSAIDS.  With Tyramine Intolerance, food preservatives and sulfites are a big issue, too.  I can't touch honey at all.  It makes my throat itch and get all irritated.  Same with potatoes.  Gluten intolerance comes with Tyramine Intolerance, too.

As Tyramine Intolerance is very similar to Histamine Intolerance, research Histamine Intolerance, too.

Your symptoms are much more severe than mine are in some ways, but I have a lot of the same symptoms.  But, I don't have any more ideas other than looking up this information that you may already know about.
