Went to the ER last night because I couldn't breathe... my chest was very tight and I felt like if I went to sleep I was going to die. I got blood work, an EKG, and a chest x-ray; everything looked great and I started to feel better while I was there. No infections, no liver issues, no kidney problems, normal thyroid levels, perfect blood pressure, etc. They said the sudden shortness of breath definitely could have been some type of allergic reaction, and the other symptoms I've been having could still be complications from mono.
I'm feeling lightheaded and a little flushed this afternoon, but I haven't eaten yet or drank much water. It's kind of scary because I have no idea what I could have reacted to yesterday, and I'm worried it's going to happen again.
Edit: I'm reading a little bit about
detox reactions and Herx reactions from mold, and I'm wondering if that could be happening to me. I took a garlic supplement yesterday and the day before, which has anti-fungal properties.
