In the past two months the I've had 3 major anaphylaxis reactions and one minor. The first led to motivation, all the others a night in IF I.
I've seen an allergist,had the test to foods(as all episodes were when eating), and blood work but we ha B-) e no idea what's causing it.
I carry 2 epi pens at all times. I get scared every time I eat. Especially if out or with friends/family.
My tongue, and lungs tissue swell more than my throat closing...I don't understand all that. They had to urinate through nose bc of you've and said my tracks was swollen but not horrible but lying tissue was badly swollen.
At a loss... even kept labels of the foods and soy bean oil was in 2 o f the 4, only similar ingredient.

Hi Ang,
I would think a more detailed food and beverage test is in order. In the mean while, why not get a binder and paper or a notepad and write down Everything: time, date, what you eat, what you drink, time of anaphylaxis, what you did. It could be a chemical within the foods. Ie: I am allergic to asprin. Not many know this, but a lot of fruits, veggies, teas have the natural form of asprin in it. My body can normally fight off the allergic reaction, unless I am ailing underweather. If I eat tomatoes, cucumbers, berries (all types), lots of fruits and veggies while ailing I break out head to toe hives. I always make sure to have my epi and benedryl in my purse at all times. I do know a kid who happens to be allergic to red dye 40 and yellow dye in foods too. Have you tried organic? Have you been checked for the soy bean oil? Can you ask your dr to see if you can take benedryl before eating to help ward off allergic reactions while you are out eating? Could your allergy be MSG? Also, I have noticed throughout the years, different companies of foods list the ingredients different ways ie: chemical compound name, generic name, so on.
