So I drove to this place this past weekend to get cookies and brownies for the two swimmers with food allergies so they could have dessert at the swim banquet.  The cookies and brownies were prepackaged in clam shell type plastic so not sure how fresh they really were.  I picked up a couple cannoli because DS has never had them before.  He thought they were great, I've had better but it wasn't a bad cannoli.  There were lots of items to pick from in the case so I will take DS back so he can pick out some stuff to try.

Reactions & Stories / Re: Morning dizziness for days after eating fish
« Last post by GoingNuts on May 23, 2017, 05:56:23 AM »
Welcome Alexandra!

Wow, this sounds very confusing and unpleasant.

First of all, there are different categories of fish, so you can be allergic to one kind of fish but not another.  This can make figuring it out on your own even more difficult.

Did you have any other symptoms besides the vertigo?  Vertigo on its own would be a pretty unusual presentation of an IgE mediated allergy, but one thing I've learned here is nothing is impossible.

I think you should see an allergist who specializes in food allergies to help figure this one out - and avoid fish for now.

FWIW, my MIL got bad food poisoning from oysters, and the symptoms did indeed last for about 3-4 weeks.  It was a nightmare. 

Good luck, and I hope you get some answers!

Reactions & Stories / Morning dizziness for days after eating fish
« Last post by alexandra00000 on May 23, 2017, 02:54:30 AM »
Hi. This is my first post. I have been researching about my symptoms for months now and can't really find an explanation for what's going on with me.

Back in March I went to a restaurant and I had oysters. In the mornings that followed I felt really dizzy when waking up, it is a strong vertigo that makes it hard to be on my feet. I went to the doctor and he said that it was poisoning due to the oysters and it would last some weeks. Indeed it last around 3 weeks.

A few weeks ago I had a tuna steak and I felt the same symptoms. After that, I had white fish and salmon, both grilled and felt nothing. This weekend I had Japanese food (avoided the tuna) and here I am, dizzy for the 3rd day now.

I have never had any allergy reaction to food and I really don't know what's going on. Is it possible that after poisoned by an oyster I became allergic to fish? Or raw fish?

Wait, I'm confused....you are saying that these

http://www.quakeroats.com/products/oat-snacks/chewy-dipps/chocolate-chip.aspx

are safe in the US?  Made on separate lines from the PB and Caramel Nut flavors?

These are USA. I bought them at Giant Food Store.

I believe Giant is Stop and Shop in the Northeast, so I'll be on the lookout for those.  Thanks for posting.
