Weirdo...

Veens wants to know 7 weird things about me. I claim, there is nothing weird, they're all just quirks ;) So here goes...

1) This one's a repeat, but still...I still have two baby teeth!
2) I am allergic to trees, grass and weeds, I hate wind blowing into my face, and yet, I drive a convertible :) And I love it!
3) I have a very keen sense of hearing, sab kuch sunai deta hai...door door tak!
4) Eating bananas gives me a stomach-ache, but I love them, SO...I drink banana shakes, creme-de-bananes, etc
5) Eating lychees makes my mouth itch
6) Eating raw carrots (or any crunchy fruit or veggie) makes my ears itch
7) I can touch my tongue to my nose :)

And am tagging....cinderella, pavi, solitaire, neeku

And you even commented on it.

The mouth and ear itching are signs of food allergies. You should try not to eat these food, because over time, your allergies could get worse and you might have an anaphylactic reaction. Benadryl is good OTC drug you can take to help with such allergies. Sorry,,,thats the dorky scientist in me talking.

@cinderella I love bananas too, so I try to eat them in some other form (ice-cream, milk shake, breakfast cereal)

@suneer good question, I don't know why I know that I can do this :) I guess when I was a kid someone found out that I could do it, and then I was asked to demonstrate quite often. Not everyone can do it ;)

@xh yep, thats right. It more of a hassle for me though, I HATE noise, I can't sleep well because I wake up at the slightest sound, I want to strangle anyone (for example guy eating oranges across my cube right now, who knows he is being obnoxiously loud!) who chews their food loudly, and so on...

@carolinagal I do try to avoid these things, I usually take claritin for the TGW allergy. So you're saying claritin would help with the banana-related tummy ache too?

aneri_masi said...

@solitaire Duhh...would you call this ADD? I think I have it really bad. Sorry :(

carolinagal said...

Aneri, since I am not a medical doctor, I cannot advice you to take claritin to help with the banana-induced stomach ache. It might be an allergy and might be not.

If it is an allergy, it is known is latex-fruit syndrome. There are reports out there that have shown that there are similarities between the allergens in the banana plant, and the plant that natural rubber latex is derived from. The most common symptom of such allergies is a stomach ache. Do you have any latex-related allergies?
If not, that does not mean you will not develop them later. Taking claritin or any other anti-histamines may not necessarily help with this because it may not be a histamine-induced reaction in the first place.
My advice to you is to see an allergist about this, and they can prescribe the best course of action.

carolinagal said...

I replied to your question but not sure if it got saved. Lemme know if you did not receive it.

You have baby teeth?? I wish I had those. Right now am fighting toothache thanks to a wisdom tooth that is trying to make its way into the world for over ten years now.
