Anything orange, ok I'm sure it's something more specific than that that I have issues with, but orange things like orange squash give me migraines. Oh and the coffee from the machine at work does too.
No food, but the sound of hip-hop throws me into call-911, fall on the floor, foam at the mouth convulsions that last several minutes.
Even a small amount of MSG will drop me on the floor where I stand with a migraine within minutes.
Despite food companies denying, denying, denying a link for years, there has been a significant drop in the last couple of years with products that use MSG.
Nitrates in one strip of bacon will knock me down almost immediately.
Excessive sugar also.
Is that a problem with food youve had all your life or is it something thats come on as you got older ?
I am allergic to spoiled fish. Had spoiled fish in a japanese restaurant once and could not get off the toilet for two days.
sound of hip-hop... LOL... me too.

Left out caffeine. Just a small dose and a major migraine in minutes. 'On the floor where I stand' type reaction. I'm so careful that it doesn't happen very often.
They developed after I got older. Used to be impervious to vast quantities of MSG, nitrates, and caffeine. In my late twenties I started having bad headaches, then full blown migraines. Once it started happening, at least the links were pretty easy to make. The time between ingestion and migraine is very short. What is most amazing to me is the minute quantities that it takes. A few bacon bits on a salad may as well be a cyanide pill.
Sugar is more forgiving - which actually makes it a bit riskier because I know that a little is not a problem. It is too much that is a trigger. 'Pure', 'natural' sugars are okay; fruits and such. I can knock 'em down anytime; all I want. It is refined sugars where I can pass a tipping point.
I had a Mexican 7-Up once. Picked it up a local tienda (Mexican grocery or convenience store.) Thought nothing of it, but the recipe is not the same as US 7-Up. It has (or did at the time) nitrates in the ingredients. I was going from there to home and did not think that I would make it. No small dose, it was hours of agony.
MSG is my problem too. If I have a Chinese meal I am on a high for 12 hours and cannot sleep at night. Too many restaurants use stock cubes and those are packed with MSG
I was watching a show Living in the wild (or close to that) and the guy watched a bear take a poot in the woods he ran up and ate bear poop I think I am allergic to bear poop other than that I can't think of a thing.
I find the last year or so that if I eat chocolate that I get a headache. While I enjoy chocolate, no big deal if I never have it again. And it's not bad enough that I really avoid it, I just stick to small amounts. This is new, never used to have these problems.
Other than that thankfully if it moves, it's worth grillin' and eatin.
My wife is allergic to many seeds, nuts, fish, egg whites, and won't eat pork (except for bacon). My kids are allergic to nuts, milk products, fish, egg whites, and others that we have yet to discover. Makes it challenging to go out to dinner.
Peppers. I don't last ten minutes after eating food containing them.
he ran up and ate bear poop - Gross !
