Hi, what you are experiencing could be food intolerance. These symptoms are generally less serious and are limited to digestive problems. If you have a food intolerance, you may be able to eat small amounts of the offending food without trouble. There could be many reasons for this, like IBS, lactose intolerance, celiac disease and sensitivity to food additives. Sometimes the mere thought of a food may make you sick. The reason is not fully understood. Regards.

Hello, I'm no expert but I myself do suffer from a few allergies myself, The main symptoms that occur are some like: sickness, vomiting , an outbreak of hives, swelling of certain areas of the body(for me its my throat), rashes. I personally think that you shouldn't disregard this theory and maybe have a blood test just to be sure but it sounds more like food intolerance, so you may be able to eat a certain amount of food but anymore will give you the symptoms you are experiencing; but as I say I'm no expert.
kind regards (hope you get better soon!) H

I'm trying to get tests done as we speak because It does seem to happen around certain foods,however not all the time. I've noticed one thing that does it is Milk so I've managed to cut that out so far. I will update on how it goes :)
