The internet is the new news, and there is no better way to find out what’s really going on with your body than to listen to someone who knows. If you see an article, book, or video that talks about an anaphylactic reaction, you can learn what to do. This is a very hard lesson to learn if you have never had a reaction to a food or drug.
A reaction of any kind to any of the foods or drugs we eat or use can be anaphylactic. This is because we’re in the process of developing an immune system. When we get the food or drug into our system, the immune system starts to attack it in the same way you might get a cold. That same cold can actually be deadly.
Anaphylaxis is a reaction to a substance, which can be an allergen, food, or drug. It can start as a mild rash, which is only one of the symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction. If the anaphylactic reaction takes place at rest, it can be easily treated. If it occurs during exercise, it can be much more serious. But the bottom line is in a few seconds you can die.
I know we’re all afraid of the word “anaphylaxis,” but I think it deserves a closer look. Anaphylaxis is the medical term for the sudden onset of an allergic reaction. In anaphylaxis, the immune system attacks the body due to a substance in the blood that doesn’t normally react with it. Sometimes the reactions are mild and you’ll be fine. But if the reaction occurs during exercise, it gets much more serious.
If you or someone you know has a reaction to an allergen, it is best to seek medical help as soon as possible. You can take your immunoglobulin levels or any other test that may show a reaction, but it may not mean you are fully immunized against that substance. If you have a reaction, you may need to stop exercising for 24 hours. Most people recover in about 12 hours, but some people need to rest for up to 48 hours.
It’s not uncommon for people to have reactions when they exercise that are severe enough to cause them to stop exercising. Some of the more severe reactions might be allergic, while others might be anaphylactic. Most people recover within four to six hours, but some people need to rest for up to ten hours after the allergic reaction.
