Is it likely to test negative in all tests and still have allergies?

Because of sore throat and constantly running nose, I had skin pricks that showed negative.

There are other tests like blood tests and shots under the skin to check for allergies. I may get them done.

Just wanted to know, how likely is it to test negative in ALL tests, skin pricking, blood test, and shots under the skin, and still not have allergy? Is this common? Because I have this feeling that I'll show negative in everything, and then I don't know what to do.

Medicine for allergy and inhaler NOT helping. I've tried. Would love to go for immunotherapy, but can't be done if I don't know what I'm allergic to.

Well the best thing you can do is google it. Trying to find the reason why and what your allergic to, could be like playing Russian roulette. Its dangerous, you could google it and symptoms, and also speak to your GP about it.
