Hi Everyone,
I am visiting from the uc section. The other day I broke out in hives
and I went to the hospital and they put me on prednizone and some
shot to help my chest open because it was real heavy. Now tonight the pain is back. Does
anyone know why this is happening to me?
I can't call my doctor till tomorrow.
Anything I can do to try and open my air waves?
Thank you

If you are having trouble breathing from an allergic reaction, you need to call 911, or get to the ER!!  This is not anything to fool around with!

Please seek help now!  It's better to be safe than sorry!

"Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening type of allergic reaction.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors   

Anaphylaxis is an severe, whole-body allergic reaction. After an initial exposure to a substance like bee sting toxin, the person's immune system becomes sensitized to that allergen. On a subsequent exposure, an allergic reaction occurs. This reaction is sudden, severe, and involves the whole body.

Tissues in different parts of the body release histamine and other substances. This causes constriction of the airways, resulting in wheezing, difficulty breathing, and gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal pain, cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea."
