So like the title says, my symptoms look like an allergic reaction, but I have never had a food allergy before. This is definitely triggered (80% of the occurances) by eating. I first noticed with a chewy granola bar (Quaker Dipps) and felt immense facial/head pressure, my face turned all red below the forehead, and I felt like I was breathing through a skinny straw. But it didnt end there, I can now add pepperoni, sugar free gum, sugared gum, jelly beans, corned beef, turkey polska kielbasa, birthday cake, fried cheese sticks, a kit-kat bar (sniffle), ice cream, ham sandwich(ham, mustard, white bread), and a fewcothers I just cant think of at this moment. If they had something in common (wven sugar- but the pepperoni and corned beef had no apparent sources) I'd keep looking for the culprit. Doc said maybe its catecholamines (or catecholines, not exactly sure which is correct) so I have been reading on it.
Has anyone at all had this happen to them and what was the culprit? I have 3 children (under 12 years all) and my husband deploys in 4-8 days. Any clue or direction to look would be helpful. I take a benedryl right away niw, but I think it only helps by putting me to sleep? Could this be adrenaline - and so sudden to develop? Thanks in advance for any insight.
