I've had bouts for over 10 years and I'd like to know if anyone else out there suffers from exercise-induced anaphylaxis. If so, what are the triggers, symptoms, and how do you cope with it?

Thanks,
ajpie

Hi Ajpie,

I had one bout of anaphylaxis around 17 years ago, and not one since (knock on wood). I was hospitalized for a throat infection last year, and while receiving antibiotics, I realized I was swelling up all over, though without any hives. I went to have allergy tests done on the antibiotics I was receiving, and they were negative... so the dr. suggested it was angioedema.
The way I've dealt with the allergies is to avoid food for at least 2 hours, ideally 3 or 4, prior to exercising, and always have my epipen with me.

best wishes,
Vicky

Hi Vicky,

I'm glad to hear you didn't have recurrences after the 'big' one... I too carry an epi everywhere I go, and try to avoid eating 2-3 hrs before exercising (or even a walk around the block)... hoping I can better manage any potential for recurrence too. In my case, the consensus was mostly angiodema also. But always with the possibility that it could be something else, still undiagnosed.. which, quite honestly, is the most frustrating part of it all: never being sure if we've covered all the ground (ie via tests). However, I need to believe that with precautions and awareness of the rhythm and sensations of my body, this whole crisis-prevention thing will get me to take better care of me!

peace & health to you,
AJ

Exercice has never triggered an anaphylectic reaction. I did not know it was possible. However, it triggers my asthma... everytime.
