Hi. I'm 41 yrs old and have never had a allergic reaction. This past Thursday ate out at a Mom and Pop chalet chicken place. I had to start colesaw, a hot chicken sandwich brown meat with peas and sauce, friends chicken skin dipped in sauce and a cherry candy. After 10 mins of finishing my supper and starting to drive stomach started turning, made a pit stop at a coffee shop to use bathroom. Then my lower eylids started to swell up, I felt congested and started developing a rash on my skin. I went home and called a Info health hotline and they rexcommend I either call 911 and rush to the hosiptal. I called my dad and off we went.
 
I'm stunned I've eaten at this place many times before, and never anything has happened. Is it possible that I've become allergic to chicken at my age? The doctors where also very surprise since I hadn't eaten anything out of the ordinary. They were unable to determine the cause, is this normal experiencing a reaction of this sort without a clear cause?

This kind of allergy can be from almost ANYTHING you ate or the things that were used in the process of making it. Allergies though can happen at any time/any age no matter if you've had these types of things before. It sounds like you had a pretty bad reaction to whatever it was so I would recommend you see an allergist to determine exactly what it was that caused such a reaction.

I agree it was severe reaction and will schedule a visit to alergist ASAP, will they find what I reacted to?

There's a good chance that they might find what you are allergic to. Allergy testing is sort of process of elimination in combination with different kinds of allergy tests such as the RAST, skin test or epidermal. I hope they find the cause of your allergy soon though. If you go in to see an allergist, you might have them give you a prescription for an Epipen to help you in the future if it was to happen again.

The epipen has been prescribed and I carry it all the time, also was prescribed medication which I have finished taking last nite. Is there a possibility of reoccurrence once the meds are completly gone from my system? I booked my apt for my allergy test, in the mean time I need to be aware of what I eat.

I guess there is always the possibility of it happening again until you know for sure what it is that your reaction was to. I wish you luck on your allergy test, please let us know the outcome! And yes, please please please be careful of what you eat! I'm glad to hear that you got an Epipen :)

zoso0...eating junk food like you describe will make you ill.the amount of salt and fats in the foods you described will raise your blood presurre and make you prone to many serious health problems.why not go to the local market and get lots of fruit and veg ..fish and lean meat and cook it for yourself and your family...more fun and tastier...junk food is not good for you so ditch it now.......eat healthy grooveyxx

Groovey,
 
I need to do all of the above myself.  I just wish I had someone to shop and cook for me.  :-)
 
Take care!

Groovey,
 
If you don't mind, please email me a couple of the soup recipes.  I'll try to make them.  I am so lazy when it comes to cooking.
 
Hugs!
