I have been eating sushi for 27 years.
On occasion I will experience tightness of throat.
In my 20s I have reacted severly to shitake mushrooms. Severe tightness of throat.
One trip to the ER.
I avoid them and keep bendril in my wallet.
This year I have, only after eating sushi, between 5 and 7 hours after eating sushi (same place everytime, nearly the same food) experienced the following:
After 5-7 hours
wake up due to itchy palms and feet
go to bathroom and realize face, nose, lips are swollen and flushed.
Entire body is flushed and covered in hives.
Itchy all over.
Throat is tight.
I take 100mg of benedril and take a long bath.
In 2 hours I'm back to normal and am really tired all day.
It totally sucks!
Currently I am reducing my usual order and trying to determine who the culprit is.
