In brief: Get tested
Before you give up on tomatoes, get an ige blood test to see if you are allergic.
Immunocap offers such a test. You can get it at quest labs. Maybe you are just having heartburn from the acid?

I agree that the testing is useful if it is placed in context with the History and Exam findings.

In brief: M.D. visit/workup
I would advise a detailed history outlining your intake and then possible reactions.
If it is consistent with an allergic response, testing can be performed.
