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."
