If someone is unaware of any allergies. If it's severe will it happen right away?

Not necessarily. It depends on what the allergen is and what the reaction is. There's no reason to worry about a reaction that hasn't happened yet.

Not allergies are like peanut allergy. A severe reaction doesn't have to be throat closing or hives.

For instance, I am sensitive (allergic my allergist calls it) to sulfites. My reaction to that can start in a half hour to 2 hours. I don't get swelling in the throat, but I do get tachycardia, which once triggered a heart attack and has sent me to the hospital a few times.

Or, my allergy/sensitivity to albuterol - which started 8 hours after I inhaled a puff and put me in the hospital.

A severe allergy can happen the first time you come in contact with the allergen, or the second, or even after years.

Do you have a particular reaction? Do you think you may be allergic to something?

I never had a severe reaction. I only react by itchy eyes , watery nose sneezing from seasonal allergies. But since I suffer with anxiety. I keep thinking I'm going to have an anaphylaxis reaction to foods, nuts etc. so I was wondering if the reaction (anaphylaxis ) would happen right away or hours after ingesting ?
