Unknown allergy- causes anaphylaxis, get sore throat, swollen eyes

I desperately need help. about one year ago I went into anaphylaxis for an unknown allergen.
It have been tested for pollen, latex, peanuts, some food.
It keep happening and I cant find the common denominator.
I thought it was seasonal until 3 hours ago when my throat suddenly got sore and my eyes started swelling.
I took benadryl and symptoms appeared to have subsided.
Anybody have any ideas? The doctors cant seem to locate an allergy. Thank you so much

How about mold or mildew?  I had anaphylaxis during my allergy testing because of mold.
Thank you for your reply. I recently had blood test checking mold, but the results have been lost..so the doctors are looking for them. Did you have to come in direct contact or just in the vicinity of the mold? My attack last weekend, I had just come in from outside and within 4 minutes the attack started. There is no mold outside as it is too cold. Thank you
