Allergies and Rage

I had some pomegranate gilatto from a store the other day and I now know I'm allergic to something in it, but thats not the issue.

about 10min after i finished it I got angry like RAGE angry and I very very rarely get that angry. It popped up out of no where.

after about 45minutes I passed out (which is how i know I was an allergy)

But i have never gotten that sort of emotion from eating an allergy food.

I was just wondering if anyone else has had this before or known of someone that had that sort of reaction.

Hi,  I have heard that some allergins can cause changes in emotions ... especially those with chemicals involved such as sulfites, nitrates and chocolate --- tyramine, etc.  I'm not quoting anybody or any resources -- just info I've picked up along the way helping out on communities and with my own child who had behavioral issues with certain foods and what I'd call zero intolerance.

You may have passed out from drop of BP .. next time may not wake up from anaphylaxis . I'd stay away from your allergin and see an allergist ASAP and wear a medic tag .. nothing to fool with.
