Rodriguez, who is currently in Texas, USA for a GMA event,  said that he woke up itching, feeling hot and could hardly breathe with hives and inflammation all over his body.

He, however, could not determine what triggered the allergies, although he remembered having a pineapple bought at a local supermarket.
