Re: Soma-Allergic reaction???
Ya know,I have had the same thing happen with certain meds.things that I had taken before with absolutely no problem are now causing all kinds of wierd reactions.what you described is much more life threatening than any of the types of just weird reactions i have had in the past.
yours sounds like a definitel anaphylactic reaction,in other words a true allergic type of a reaction.you should never ever take this med again at all.the effects would keep becomming much more severe everytime you would use it.talk to your doc about this and also make sure to keep note of this med now as one you can no longer take as you have become allergic to it.
I really dont quite understand just how this type of thing actually happens but it does.I dont know if a persons body just reaches a certain point when a specicfic med is taken over time and something just reacts to it or what.i have had this happen with zithromax(just recently)and another med years ago.
This is kind of the same bizarre thing that happened with regard to certain migrane triggers I now have/for all of my life I could actually eat certain foods with no problem then all of the sudden,things like peanut butter and italian suasage would just trigger migranes in e.and I haven't a clue as to why,it just all of the sudden started doing it.Now,just over this past year it happened again with red licorice.ate it for many years(I really do just love it)and then about six months ago,I noticed that everytime I would eat some,(just like with everything else I get the my migranes the day after i would eat the trigger foods)the very next day,bam after a few hours upon waking in the morning,a migrane.very bizarre.
I think our bodies must actually just be under some sort of ongoing physiological type of changes that have some sort of effect on our tolerance for specific things.Its all just really kind of freaky tho.
at any rate,talk to you Rxing doc about the reaction and make sure that when you are ever asked about any med allergies,that you DO tell them that you had an actual anaphylactic type of episode the last time you took soma.you should also do some more research on this med and fine out just what the actual name of the active med is that is in it so you can possibly avoid any other type of meds that could possibly contain that active ingredient.You don't want to have to go thru that again i am sure.
hope you can find a new med that will work for you.just make sure it does not contai the same active med in it.good luck and i am glad the reaction was not full blown.Marcia
