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?
