I am worried my symptoms are of a food allergy/intolerance.

Customer Question

Hi,I am worried my symptoms are of a food allergy/intolerance. I have been eating healthily recently and have noticed various sensitivities to foods.The last couple of days I have had aches and pains all over my body and slight nasal congestion - are these known symptoms of food allergy? There is also a cold going around my office and people feeling unwell - is it more consistent with a cold?

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.More consistent with cold virus. Foo allergies commonly cause stomach symptoms. Runny nose is not one of them. Cold related symptoms should subiside with a week or two. Then reassess your symptosm against food ingredients.
