Man, Dude!!!!! Good grief!! Susan had something similar a few years back. For some reason she suddenly developed an alergy to "tree foods". Pecans, walnuts, cinnamon, etc. SHe had a reaction like yours, minus the "shocky symptoms". Luckily, I got her to the hospital before anyhting really bad happened. Now she can eat those foods in moderation. Just one of those things, I suppose.

You take care of yourself. We have business to do in the future!

Jim

glad you're feeling better!

Oh, Richard! Just found this thread now. Glad things turned out okay in the end- thank god for your wife! Gotta go along with the general epipen and benedryl advice - it's definately cheap insurance. I keep bees but won't mess with the hive without my suit, veil, and smoker. The aforementioned has also come in handy when I am eliminating wasp nests with Raid too! Stay well - Tuesdays nights and Ebay would be boring without you! Diane

Glad you are better

An Epi-pen is best and Benedril liquid is faster acting than the tablets. If you don't have access to an epi-pen you can use an asthma inhaler like Primatine for some quick relief - or even coffee can help relieve the breathing problems.

It's still best to go to the hospital because of high blood pressure as a side effect of epinephrin, the active ingredient in the inhaler or epi-pen. Low blood oxygenation is a serious consequence of breathing difficulties.
