Just introducing myself. I've had two bouts of anaphylaxis, once in April and once last Sunday. Both times were unexplained and happened about 5 minutes after waking and getting out of bed. I am seeing an allergist Monday and pretty scared of all this happening again. I think that my biggest fear is they won't figure out what caused these violent and severe reactions.
I am 35 and have a bit of history with allergies. Used to have severe seasonal allergies but they have improved. I have oral allergy syndrome with apples and other fruits. I had one other anaphylactic reaction about 10 years ago to CT contrast dye.
Both times I started with severe stomach pain. The progression moved to vomiting and diarrhea, hives, itching, sweating, swelling, etc. I was so confused and the first time had no idea what was happening. I have severe anxiety so it makes this a lot harder. I'm praying for answers but we shall see I guess.
Thanks for listening!
