| | Do I Need A Epi-Pen Or Ana-Pen?
Uhh, where to start?
i'm full of allergies. Nuts is the worst one.
My throat, inner cheeks, tongue, and lips swell up and go tingly.
the other day i didnt realise & ate a Classic Cornetto, i didnt realise that there were hazelnuts on it. i only had one bite, of the chocolate on the outside, not even eating any of the nuts, and i knew straight away.
I'm asthmatic [i also can't spell that :P] and instantly my mouth swelled up, i couldn't breathe properly and started to take my inhaler. i took three anti-histamines but they didnt even touch the reaction.
the reaction was worse than any i've had previously, i was in and out of consiousness and couldn't speak properly, my body was shaking and i couldn't feel my hands properly, they felt tingly. Everything sounded really loud & my eyes kept going in and out of focus.
I'm going to the doctors tomorrow, and having looked it up, i think it might have been mild anaphylaxis, and i was wondering what treatment i should ask for..? i was thinking an Ana-pen [adrenaline..] but i wanted to know what anyone on here would say? x
