I drank a Pink Guava Coconut water last night, and suddenly my tongue and face swelled to the point I couldn't breath. My dad rushed me to the ER. I pulse stayed around 130-160 for 4 hours. Finally after benadrly, steriod shot, and 2 breathing treatments things got better. It was really scarry.
I don't understand why it took so long for the swelling go down enough for me to breath though.
I'm thinking about asking for a scripts for an Epi-Pen, because this isn't the first time I've had bad reactions to food that lead to ER intervention. once I was even put on a vent.
I have no idea what in the drink caused the reaction.
I drink the pinapple ones all the time, and I think i've even had the guava one before.
Oh well, just glad I'm okay now.
do any of you have to have an Epi-Pen?
