I am looking for answers to what happened a few weeks back. On a wednesday afternoon, I woke up around 1pm (I work evening shift.). I ate 4/5's of a box of Quaker Chewy Oat Granola Fiber and Omega-3 Dark Chocolate Chunk Bars. Around 3pm, I noticed I had some gas and some stomach aches, around 8 pm, I had to leave work because my stomach felt like it was on a carnival ride.
I got back to work around 9pm and started itching on my arms, under my armpits, and around my stomach line.
I got home around 130 and continued to itch, I started scraching my right arm on the underside, and broke out in hives down both arms, under my armpits and across my stomach line, near my groin and down to the upper portions of my legs.
I had diarrhea and continued to have diarrhea until Friday. I felt generally run down and had some chills Thursday and Friday. I broke out in hives when I returned home from work that Thursday and Friday. I started to sweat all over Friday morning and had hot flashes for about 2 hours Friday morning. Everything returned to normal on Saturday, some minor itching, no hives, and solid stools
That Wednesday, a cold front with 30 degree temperature differential went through the area, and I have been moving dusty furniture around the week prior. I have severe dust allergies and super sensitive skin.
Could my dust allergies have enhanced my sensitivity to what I ate or does this sound like a classic food allergy/intolerance situation? I have no known food allergies that I known of before this incident.
I'm just looking for answers. Thanks
I also wanted to add, that on the first night my neck was completely red, and I felt tingling in my extremeties. I took a cold shower, and that seemed to help a little. I was pretty close to going to the emergency room.
Also, that Friday morning when I woke up I had a blotchy rash on my wrist and near my shoulder which seemed to disappear a few hours later.
