Ear-redding And Lump On My Throat

Food allergy. I'm wondering if I have this.

I have a bad reaction to food nine times out of ten. From stomach cramps to diaherrea, to, lately, one of my ears getting very red and hot. There's also been on a lump on my throat (lymph node?) for quite awhile.

Are there tests I can take to ascertain if I have it? I've been to doctors about my stomach problems and nothing's ever worked. I began to think nothing could work for me.. Anyway. Any help would be appreciated.

The doctors should be able to run tests to see what you're allergies are.
Otherwise remember to keep a log and tell the doctors what foods typically cause a reaction and remember to mention the lump in your neck.

Good luck!
