Hi I'm new to this site and see some very interesting discussions with lots of advice. Thought i'd share my experience in the hope of finding some answers. I have been suffering with puffy/swollen eyes, blocked nose all night, cough for many years. I know this could be dust mite allergy but I also often wake up with a sore throat, swollen glands, sore mouth and sore throat. Sometimes my head, neck aches and often my hands and joints are sore. I think some of this may be due to foods. For example if I eat salt and vinegar crisps this happens, foods with pepper or chilli, wine, crunchy nut cornflakes. The problem is my GP says he doesn't think it's an allergy as my tongue and throat do not swell. I feel like I have hay fever already. But the GP has referred me to addenbrookes allergy clinic. SHould I keep a food diary before going? I feel like this may be several things going on. Does anyone know if the allergy will test with a blood test or by skin prick?
