Ethiopian Food

medmtl | Nov 5, 2010 03:21 PM

E.F. is one of my most favorite foods and we are fortunate to live near D.C., the capitol of Ethiopian food.The last 2 out of 3 times I ate at an Ethiopian restaurant (2 different ones) I had a very bad allergic reaction. I am not allergic to any foods; I have a fairly cast iron stomach and a leather mouth and can tolerate any degree of heat,. Both times I had hives, welts all over my body and had to go to the E.R. Now I have an emergency Epi pen. Who wants to die eating.?.. let me rephrase that. I don't want to stop eating E.F. but am starting to get concerned. Anyone have any ideas about this??, Which spices could be a problem? How to re-enter? my email is MEDMRL@AOL.COM not MEDMTL
