Sometime in February I woke up with incredible swelling of the lips and eyes, and slight swelling in my tongue. I was covered in hives. Fast forward
a week, and all I'd been prescribed was an epi-pen, despite having hives everyday, and swelling of the lips almost every morning. Fast-forward to
May and I was admitted to the hospital after a scary experience where my throat closed up at work, not enough to fully constrict, but enough to
terrify me. After being practically dismissed at the ER, my family doctor, who is also an on-call ER doctor had me admitted. I was given a shot of
epinephrine, and I was sent home. From then on out I was absolutely covered in hives every single day. My doctor put me on a regimen of Reactine and
I was still covered in hives, and at the end of my patience with being itchy every single day, so I started eating only plain white rice. This brought
my hives down to 0, but most attempts to add in foods resulted in hives, with the exception of broccoli ....but not too much broccoli!
This mystery is so unnerving to me. After 30 years of never having an adverse reaction to anything, except my Hepatitis vaccine as an 11 year old, I
wake up one day and BAM!
Has anyone else experienced such a sudden onset of allergy like symptoms?
