i have recently been developing food allergies over the past 2 years. My symptoms usually include a very itchy mouth, swollen lips, or hives.
Last week i was opening the bar at work and all of a sudden my mouth started to itch, so i took a benedryl and then shortly after (5-10 mins) i was having alot of trouble breathing and according to my boss i looked extremly pale. I felt faint and started getting shaky. Then my breathing became very very slow and then i could barely breath at all. (that lasted about 2 minutes) then i started to hyperventalate and couldnt catch my breath.
i didnt hadnt eaten anything and had been drinking a bottle of water.
my boss took me to the doctors office next door after i was relaxed and then when i was explaining what had happened he just kinda looked and me & said that it made no sense. he said it couldnt of been an allergic reaction if i was hyperventalating.
soo can someone please explain what happened?
some of the foods that bother me are: carrots, peppers, almonds, peaches, pears, bannanas, melons, and mangos
