    Are these symptoms of a mushroom allergy?

    I have been having these symptoms for about three years. Before that I was fine. Even mushroom soup powder makes me sick.

    My gastrointestinal symptoms include severe burning and colicky pain, mostly in the upper abdomen and left quadrant about 30 minuters after eating mushrooms and sometimes other foods like red wine or coffee.  I also experience bloating and vomiting.


    I'm 26, active, and healthy, with no other medical conditions.


    I was diagnosed with IBS as a teenager. That is under control, and I now have normal bowel habits. It's just like my colon is very sensitive to stress and certain food.


    I have had scopes (gastric, colo, sigmoid); all they showed was chronic gastritis.


    Nothing seems to help for the pian, not analgesia, PPI's, or hyoscine.


    I'm not sure if it is IBS, food intolerence, or allergy. 


    Please help!
