I am a 40 year old, and recently have had a severe reaction to "something". It has happened twice now, in early april i had a reaction after dinner one night. It started with itching on my leg, groin , and reasonably quickly my hands went red and itchy, my torso and ultimately whole body was red like i jad sunburn. My lips swelled up a bit and my tongue was a little swollen. I took two antihistamines, and things settled down within an hour or so. Foolishly i didnt follow up on it.
Anyway this thursday, it happened again. Similar buildup, but this time it was way worse. The antihistamine didnt work for starters , and about an hour after i took those, i got a locum doctor to come to the house. By the time he got there i was shaking jncontrollably and very freaked out. He ended up giving me a predisonlone injection, and eventually the reaction settled down. The doctor stayed for about a half hour deciding if i needed to go to hospital or not.
So.. It appears im allergic to something. I have got a soecialist appt for monday, but in the meantime wondering what the hell is going on !?!?! Anyone had a similar late onset thing like this kick in?
