Should I get an allergy test in order to correctly fill out my health history form?

<p>I don't know what I'm allergic to. Possibly pollen, but I haven't ever had serious allergic reactions. Should I get tested for codeine, foods, sulfa, et al?</p>

<p>unless you have a history of allergic reactions for things, no.</p>

<p>Write "No known allergies" on the form.</p>

<p>Well it never hurts to get tested for allergies. Though if you do not get tested for allergies before you feel out your forum you will have to opt for "No Known allergies" and from my understanding can also update.</p>

Writing that you don't know of any allergies you may have is probably a good idea.</p>

<p>However, you should get tested at some point. While you may not have common allergies, like say to shellfish or something, you may have some that it's useful to know about later on. For example, I'm allergic to a chemical sometimes added to anesthesia for surgery. While it's not pertinent in my day-to-day life, it's imperative to know when going in for an operation.</p>
