I've enjoyed fruit my entire life until the last few years. After I eat many different types of fresh fruit (apples, pears, peaches) and sometimes almonds I get a numbness and uncomfortable sensation in my mouth and recently after eating a peach I had far more severe feeling symptoms. After my mouth regained feeling, I felt the pain in my esophagus, and around my chest area. It was uncomfortable and it could have been in my head, but felt like it constricted my breathing a little. Any idea what's causing this (pesticides???) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to the forum!
I am sorry to say but you have developed allergy to apple, peach, pears and other related fruits. It is possible to develop allergy at any time of your life. You could have enjoyed the same fruits for years and then one day find that you have developed either a sensitivity towards them or an allergy. An allergy test can diagnose this for sure. What is advisable is to stop taking these fruits or their products like jams, juices etc. Do discuss this with your doctor (preferably an allergy specialist) and get yourself examined.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
