In brief: Maybe not

Banana allergy can present with abdominal symptoms, hives, itching and even anaphylaxis.
Isolated abdominal pain may be a symptom. The commercial skin test for banana and blood test may "miss" a true banana allergy. In that case, your allergist could do a skin test with fresh banana. Either way, if eating bananas results in significant symptoms, plan on avoiding them.
