Did you read this wine allergy story from the United Kingdom ? "A teenager has developed a rare allergy that sends her into exhausting sneezing fit if she so much as smells a glass of wine."
The story continues: "Miss Miller said she used to be able to drink wine and suffered no other side effect other than feeling slightly light-headed, but then she began to suffer shooting pains. 'I would get terrible back cramps but then one day the sneezing started and it just has not stopped,' she said."
I've not heard of back cramps related to wine allergies before and I wonder about the rest of her diet and her whole health picture, which unfortunately was not reported.
Whether it's flushed cheeks or sniffles after a glass or two, many people report negative reactions to wine and liquor. However, according to the AAAAI : "It is usually not the alcohol that produces the allergic reaction to the wine or beer.

Hello, I have recently been suffering from severe headaches that originate behind my left eye, behind my ear, to the base of my neck. It hurts to cough, sneeze, or even bend over to pick something up. I had a CT of the sinuses and it turned up nothing.

Causes There is no single cause for eating disorders. Although concerns about weight and body shape play a role in all eating disorders, the actual cause of these disorders appears to involve many factors, including those that are genetic and neurobiologic, cultural and social, and behavioral and psychologic. Although much has been written about the roles of families and parenting as causes of eating disorders, there is no solid evidence supporting this claim. Genetic Factors Anorexia is eight times more common in people who have relatives with the disorder. Studies of twins show they have a tendency to share specific eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and obesity). Researchers have identified specific chromosomes that may be associated with bulimia and anorexia. Biologic Factors The bodys hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) may be important in eating disorders. This complex system originates in the following regions in the brain: Hypothalamus . The hypothalamus is a s...
