  1. I was diagnosed as a Celiac a year ago. Doing very well since then! I am having a serious problem and need some feedback. Twice in the past year I have had a very strange allergic reaction after eating. My face gets very red, I break out in hives, and my throat feels tight. The first time, I was eating at an Indian restaurant. The food was not too spicy. I have also never had any problem eating spicy food before. I went to the hospital just as a precaution, since my throat was tight. They gave me some benadryl and sent me to an allergist. Since then, it happened once again after eating one VERY spicy chicken wing. For days after my eyes were red, as well. The allergy tests came back as negative for dust, cats, most food, etc. The doctors have no idea why I am having this reaction, and what in the food could be setting it off. Have any of you had such a reaction after eating, and figured out what it is? Are there any food allergies like this that Celiacs tend to have? I thought of MSG, but I also eat Chinese food and don't have a problem so far. I also eat other spicy food and have not had this reaction. I am at a loss and don't want to push this allergy to the point where I really have trouble breathing, but I have no idea what is setting it off!
