Sometimes a feeling of uneasiness and discomfort occurs immediately after a meal. It is often thought that the result of a food allergy. In most cases, however, this feeling of discomfort is the result of the intolerance of some foods rather than food allergy. The difference in food intolerance and allergy is mainly realized through the difference in time scale and severity of symptoms.

To understand and diagnose the difference between the two is important. Symptoms of food intolerance can manifest within hours or even a day later. In the case of allergies, the onset is immediate and generally within an hour. Food allergy occurs when the immune system attempts to process a protein found in the food incorrectly, leading to an overreaction by the body and the production of certain chemicals. It is important to identify the allergen in question is causing the food allergy so that it can be avoided in future.

Some of the key symptoms that occur with food allergies are:

1. Skin rashes and itching
2. Severe diarrhea and vomiting
3. Stomach cramps
4. Swelling skin especially in areas of procurement, such as the eyelids, lips and inside the mouth
5. A runny nose and blocked nasal passages
6. Inflammation throat, trachea and larynx
7. Headaches
8. Fatigue and dizziness
9. Joint pain
10. Hives

These symptoms should be identified immediately as delayed treatment can lead to malfunctioning of the internal systems. Ingredient labels should be read carefully when buying food and when eating out it is always a good idea to check with the waiter at the restaurant about ingredients used to prepare a plate. Some patients are so vulnerable that doctors even advise them to carry self-injectable epinephrine pens, which can literally save your life duringĀ  a severe allergic reaction.

The foods below are five of the most allergic foods for people with food allergies:

1. Eggs
2. Milk or dairy products
3. Seafood and shellfish
4. Peanuts and cashews
5. Wheat

These are the foods which most common affect children and adults, and it is important to visit a medical professional as soon as you experience any signs of a food allergy. In cases of food intolerance, smaller degrees of similar symptoms may occur but usually disappear after a short time. In the cases of food allergies these symptoms even more pronounced and severe, and may also lead to severe breathing problems or diarrhea.
