Question Fish allergies: anaphylaxis shock

I recently took a fish oil capsule and subsequently had a severe case of anaphylaxis shock and had to go to the ER. I am okay now, but I want to know which type of fish I may be allergic to. I will go in for an allergy test in two weeks. The fish oil capsules had the following types of fish in them:
1. Salmon
2. Sardines
3. Herring
4. Anchoivies
5. Mackarel

I have eaten salmom many times without problem. I may have had an accidental anchoivie on a pizza. I have never had sardines, herring, or mackarel. Any inofrmation you can share about your experiecnes on this issue would be greatly appreciated! God bless! Dave

Re: Fish allergies: anaphylaxis shock

So are you allergic to any shell fish? or gellatin?

Good question. I doubt it is the gelatin stuff because I have taken many supplements for years that have gelatin in them. I will find out soon after I get my allergy test done on the 28th!
