The mass stupidity, brutish ignorance and lack of basic empathy of some of the posters on here should astonish me, but sadly doesn’t anymore.
I had two in the space of two months in my late 50's . I didnt know what caused the first one and took the same trigger a second time .Only becuase it was a common denominator did we realise what had caused it .,My trigger was a medication with a gastric coating on it and so the symptoms were delayed by 2 hours causing the confusion . I had taken that medication often throughout my life and one random Tuesday
it caused a massive anaphylaxis . I was resuscitated , intubated and ventilated only because my neighbour drove me to a hospital only 10 minutes away .
The second time two Epipens kept me alive till I reached the hospital
For the ignorant on this thread i could write about the sheer terror and the horror in my head as I felt my life slipping away and hear an anaesthetist roaring for an instrument but it wont help the ignorant or the trolls unfortunately as they have not seen the hell a child could suffer .
No one who has could write such ignorant posts( I hope) .
