    Exclamation Propane reaction. Please help

    Hi I've been having this reaction to propane for three years to where when I am around it I become pale and weak and after I start feeling better I have an after shock to where my body starts having a spasm. When the spasm starts I barely have control of my body and it just flails around. I have been to see my doctor, a neurologist, and a allergist and they do not what is going on. If anyone can help I would be really greatful. Thank you.

    You are evidently very sensitive to propane. The only thing to do is avoid it. That should be fairly easy as it only involves staying away from propane toches and grills - for the most part. You could try an antihistamine.

    Thank you, I'll try keeping away. I just didn't know if it was an allergy or some sort of disorder. Thank you very much

    It is not an allergy per se but rather a sensitivity. Happens with a lot of irritants/chemicals/etc. Typically for an allergy you can be desensitized to it. But for chemical sensitivities, no such thing exists. So you just have to avoid.
