I wasn't gonna post about it, but it's gettin worse
Had an allergic reaction to something...was eating the other day an all a sudden BAM! I start having a reaction to somethin, My throat immediately swelled up, and I got red blotches and hot yet kinda chilled at the same time!!

Thought it was somethin I ate, but now it has happened now 5 times in the past month! Twice last week. It really wears ya out from having to take benedryll it makes me super tired sick tired
Could use some prayers if ya'll are willing to send some my way!

Have to take benedryll within 10 minuets or the results could be bad.
Got an EppiPen and carry benedryll everywhere now...

Not sure what is causing it yet, it is something I eat but nothin is in common with the things that trigger it!!
Never been allergic to anything except poison ivy so this is pretty new to me.
Anyway, I'm still alive an kickin grin Don't let nothin stop me,
remember to live each day to the fullest

Well I can not pray for you, but will keep you in my thoughts. Thats probably not going to help much either, so my advice is that you stay with simple foods, Like just beef for example and then add something like pepper, then add one thing at a time to narrow it down to the thing that hurts you.
You can live on beef and potatoes and water for quite a while, Keep things simple and add one thing at a time and monitor what it does to you. It does not have to be beef, Pick any of your favorite proteins and stick with it.

I have cold urticaria a allergic reaction to cold . Really bad with cold water . In winter I carry benegryll and eppipen also .

I had it my whole life but after having a reaction to a antibiotic it fired up real bad I also find stress will make me have more out breaks .
What I am tring to say is it may not be food look for other thing that could be triggering it .

Have you by any chance, been eating Morels? My wife ate those things for 30 years and then all of a sudden, she got sick from eating the darn things. she wasn't sure that Morels made her sick the first time, so she ate some more of them and within 3 hours she was sick again. Caused a rash, up set stomach, and tunnel vision .

If one has cold urticaria how do they trap when fur is heavy?

Lydia...food allergies can happen at any age and any time. Your epi pen is your best friend, followed by a trip to the emergency room. If you feel swelling, shallow breath do not hesitate to put that pen in your thigh. If you hesitate could be to late. Then have someone drive you to the ER.

Yes you have my prayers, but you also need a game plan.

What happens if you are running a line stop for a break and this occurs. You may only get one shot to react and communicate back for help. Be advised once you get your epi injection you time starts. Thus give the shot, then call 911 on the cell phone. Be prepared to provide Lat and Long.......don't say I am 5 east of the big red barn. Because you could be confused and and your ten mile's south. So provide Lat and Long. Then grab a blanket and wait. Do not disconnect the call. You'll get help.

Prayer and hugs they find out what the culprit is. But don't stop there make sure the experts tell you what family of food is associated with the culprit.

Larry

Prayers sent for you Lydia. Hope you get it figured out soon. Aspirin causes the same reaction in me. Keep track of everything you eat or come into contact with. Good luck.

Lydia, it may be that you are allergic to tomatoes. Tomatoes are in lots of food and cause reactions like yours in people who are allergic to them. Because tomatoes are mainly used as flavoring, rather than the main ingredient, people often don't quickly figure out that is what they are allergic to.

My youngest Brother and Grandfather are both allergic to tomatoes. My brother would not eat anything with ground beef growing up or tomatoes. When he was in college he ate a dish at his girlfriend's aunt and uncle's house, that had tomatoes in it and got sick like you do. He found out he had a food aversion to ground beef, because it is commonly eaten with tomatoes.

I'm alergic to all nuts, it sucks but is not as bad as some people have it. Have you had to use the epipen? I have not had to but have gotten close a time or two.I hope you figure out what is causing it. I'll be praying, keep us posted.

Thank you all!!
Thought it was peperoni, nope.
Thought it was some kind of bread. nope.
Now thinking possibly a preservative.

What threw me off was it happens at both restaurants AND homemade food. Seemingly no corrolation between. Guess i just like to keep people thinking grin

Could be pollen from fruit or vegetables. Have a coworker that claims that's his deal with not eating fruit. Gives him a bad allergic reaction even though he used to eat the stuff.
