The food allergy group have not seen anything ...
Has anyone had, know of someone etc who has had a full anaphylactic
shock episode which has been proved to be due to trace antibiotics in
food chain - specifically in meat or milk (or milk products).
I am being treated by a consultant who believes this to be the case.
(This is an ordinary hospital consultant, not a "quack" or whatever).
I have has 3 episodes in the past 2 months (requiring A&E visits).
RAST tests show I am not allergic to normal foods, dairy products,
dogs/cats, fleas, dust mites, etc etc ... (bit fed up of all the
My normal allergic response is rated near the bottom of the normal
range (near to dropping below it), i.e. I am not a very "allergic"
I have never been allergic to anything in my life until 3 years ago
whan I had a very "spotty" reaction to amoxycillin (which presented
about 5 days into a 7 day course of tablets).
Any clues or help much appreciated. (Being put on a vegan diet with all
high salicylate foods out as well is a pain ... only leaf veg, potato,
rice etc, only water to drink ... no fresh fruit or other veg).
