Mushroom allergy?


Q: I have environmental allergies - pollens, grasses, molds, mildews, etc. Also very scent sensitive. My Question is - since I do have mold and mildew allergies, does eating mushrooms affect me? I have not monitored this but have thought about it periodically and just a few days ago I ate some fried mushrooms, alone, and for the past two days have been very froggy and slight of breath. Could there be a correlation or just my imagination - it is winter now and temps up and down. I do take antihistamines daily and am on two inhalers - one daily (that I do not take - hate taking meds when I am not sure that they are really beneficial) and ventolin - that I do take WHEN NECESSARY!
