    Please don't ever give up. It is your anxiety, I've suffered for years. Your stomach hurts due to this to. Anxiety causes acid and your stomach upsets. Hope this helps x

    Anxiety I had the same feAr about food and scare of having allergic reaction I overcomed it by trying different food and facing the fear I used to have panicks trying new food but I did it. And even though I was packing and scare I ate the food and wait for the anxiety to go away it self don't run from it or avoid now every time I eat new food my brain tell me I m going to get allergic reaction but that thought don't make me anxious because I overcomed it and I know is false I was scared of trying new toothpaste And yesterday I bought a different toothpaste and tried it my mind was racing with thoughts but I tried anyway and let the thoughts bit there and give no attention to it and it all went away and I didn't have a allergic reaction our brain is lie to us facing the fear is the only way to overcome it

      When you think u having allergic reaction sit and wait don't listen to ur mind just say ok let sit if is true sit for 30 minutes at least if u don't see any other systoms different from the systoms of panic attacks then u will know is ur ur mind sending false messages. If u sit and ur face is swallowing minutes after touching the object or rash and difficult breathing then I will know u don't get rash or swallowing when is. A panic attacks. Do this really helped overcomed that thoughts
