How toxic is cucumber as an allergy

How toxic is cucumber as an allergy

Hi--can you tell me what happens exactly when you consume a cucumber?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Bloating, pain, wind and the runs. I don't actually "eat a cucumber" just the juice from a slice is enough to bring on the pain and bloating and within 1/2 hour I've got to have the loo.

Any shortness of breath, wheezing, or difficulty swallowing after that? And are you asking if the reaction you have is somehow dangerous or could lead to other problems?
