So yesterday was a day like any other.
I ate lunch at work and it was yummy I had shrimp and fries, I must also add that I have eaten seafood about 4 days a week since birth.
About 2 hours after I ate I walked into the kitchen and felt light headed. Then I broke out in HUGE hives, turned bright red. The paramedics came to check me out and said that they think it was a shellfish allergy and I had some benadryl.
They also made me have my husband come pick me up or I was leaving in a ambulance. I was feeling fine but about half way home I started having chest pains. And trouble breathing.
So yep off to the ER with me. The hubby was behind me because I did not want to leave my car at work.
They originally thought it could have been a blood clot in my heart, they thought this because of all the symptoms and the fact that it took us 13 hours to get home at thanksgiving which could have caused the clot.
No blood clot.
They moved on to allergy's. Which I have NEVER had. EVER. I love seafood, I always have but now I am the proud owner of an epipen because there is a "chance" that I have developed an allergy to shellfish.
And they have NO idea what is wrong with me. And I am still having the chest pains.
We touched a bit on the anxiety bit, well you know because there is nothing going on in our lives. and I had another "attack" while shopping today.
So I need to find a doctor to figure out what is going.
Its all scary. And yes I cried. The hubby is going through so much more than I can ever imagine and I am falling apart at the seams.....
When it rains it pours I just wonder what the frig is wrong with me. And both times my chest hurts and I lose my breath I am not doing anything weird or worrying about anything?
Sound strange to you?
