Be Safe from Anaphylaxis-Mayo Clinic

Оценок: 288 | Просмотров: 219129
Every year up to two thousand people in the United States and Canada die from anaphylaxis -- a serious allergic reaction. The most common causes are allergies to peanuts, insect bites and seafood. But not all anaphylactic reactions are severe. They can be mild with subtler symptoms. And most people don't know that if you've had a mild reaction in the past, you're at risk of having a life threatening one in the future. More from Mayo Clinic on a new anaphylaxis awareness campaign.

Watching this from High Dependency Ward after peanut allergy.

I have just got home from hospital here in the UK after a severe anaphylactic shock. I used two adult epi pens and two junior epi pens (my daughter's) and it did nothing. The paramedics gave me 7 adrenaline injections to get me under control as well and anti histamine and hydrocortisone steroid. I have been told I am so very lucky to be alive. I was touch and go. The cause, an antibiotic that I had never had before, I've used amoxicillin plenty of times with no issues it's main ingredient being penicillin. I was prescribed co-amoxiclav today for a nasal Infection. Within ten minutes I was blue head to toe, couldn't breathe and became unconscious. I feel so very lucky to be alive right now.

I got bed ridden for a week straight, with constant fever, severe rashes all over my body, I couldn't sleep at night bc my rashes hurt and were itching. It was the most scary thing I had ever experienced. I also found it very difficult to breathe. My doctor told me to be careful, as I could die if it happens again. The worst thing? I don't know what caused the allergic reaction

I used to be a bee keeper....I got stung most days....multiple times......just normal stuff.....no reaction from me. Then one day I was stung, and my arm came up in very itchy red bumps.....then the Next time.....I nearly died. I'm now allergic to bee stings.....two epi pens at all times. Can't really describe the feeling.....but I have scarring from where I tried to itch my skin off my body...I was taken to hospital....unconscious.....woke up later...after adrenaline shots..and something to reopen my airways..staff called me Shrek....from all my face swelling... Best way to get a bee sting out....is to scrape it gently out with a card or knife......not to grab and squeeze it out.....as all the poison will be ingected at once......like a cake icer... Honey bees can sting multiple times...(myth they can sting once).and do all the time against non human threats....but have trouble with our elastic skin....so most of the time...( not all) the bee will loose her stinger as she frantically tries to remove it by walking around in circles. For me.....bees are deadly......40 mins till death.....I don't keep bees anymore but am around them all the time......strange how people can become ilergic..... The more they get stung?

I'm recovering from anaphylactic shock due to 50 mg diphenhydramine iv infusion. As an antihistamine it should have treated the initial allergy on my face (due to a peel off mask that I used). But my body reacted differently to the diphenhydramine causing my bp to rise to 200/130 and my O2 sats to go down. I was wheezing and my airways were closing. I also had involuntary jerking movements. They injected a hydrocortisone. The effects were slow but my bp was going down. Currently I'm on prednisone 20 and omeprazole. My face is still red and itchy but atleast the swelling had gone down.

For the people who are terribly ignorant, you DO NOT need to kill any bees. If you are allergic to bees, just keep your distance, the same way you prevent eating food that cause you allergies.

Please see your Healthcare Provider to prevent a life-threatening, potentially fatal allergic reaction.  Well done, Mayo!

Wish I had seen this video sooner. I had a mild reaction to shrimp, I just got itchy lips. Last week I had sushi with shrimp before an NFL game, I walked 1.5 miles and knew something was wrong. Thank God I happened to arrive at the gate where medical staff was. They saved me life and an ambulance took me to the hospital after they gave me an IV and Epi. It started with an itchy face, then itchy dry eyes that started to swell then dizziness, then I was red from head to toe and started itching. Once on the gurney o had the worst stabbing cramp pain, nausea, I felt so weak. I deteriorated within seconds! It was a blessing because now I have an epi pen bit had I known this was a possibility I would never had eaten shrimp.

I am allergic to all nuts and other stuff. I had an anaphylaxis nut allergy over a boiled sweet size of a pee yesterday. My face swelled up, my lips and my tongue swelled up, my eyes swelled up and they started to close and it was hard to open them. My whole body swelled up and it was red, sore and itchy. My body felt like it was tightening. It was hard to breathe. I have an epipen but I didn't use it stupidly because I'm scared of needles. I went in an ambulance where I was given 1000mg of an adrenaline and a few other drugs and needles and then rushed to the nhs hospital where I stayed the night. I then found today in the hospital how lucky I am to be alive because I never took the adrenaline. but When I had the allergy I took 4 heaped spoon fulls of Piriton syrup.

Past 20 yr's While around frying hamburgers I would instantly loose my voice upon inhaling the fumes in the air. Quick fresh air used to be all I needed. As time went on the shorter exposure would have longer effects. Today my throat closes and I can't breath. I even carry a small rubber hose with me encase it happens again while I'm driving on the freeway, I can jam it down my throat to breath. We tried organic beef from a farm and I have no problems. Have you heard of this before?

wtf? There are people who are allergic to water. Besides, the epinephrine is artificially created. And I posted this comment damn near a year ago...

"Not all Anaphylactic reactions are severe?" If it isn't severe then isn't it just called an allergic reaction? I was trained that one was severe and one was not. Can someone please explain the difference to me?

Yes, please share our link to this video. Thank you for asking!

Anaphylaxis is no joke. I'm going through a mild condition that my throat is closing up but I'm gonna get checked up tommorow

Are you able to get an epinephrine pen if you are in charge of a group who is traveling, and want to have one just for safety? We don't want them to be too available, because some people are abusing them for an energy rush.
Mayo Clinic (6 лет назад)
If you go to the Mayo Clinic website and search for "Epinephrine", perhaps one of the findings will be helpful. (Unfortunately YouTube does not let us offer the exact links in this reply.) If you would like to request an appointment at Mayo Clinic, call - Arizona: 800-446-2279 Florida: 904-953-0853 or Minnesota: 507-538-3270.

@rosiejuly3 - Lots of people who have hypothyroidism are misdiagnosed because the only test the main stream medical community uses for diagnosis is the TSA test which is a mechanical reading of TSA in the blood and doesn't take into account the patient's symptoms at all! On about dot com theres a very good hypothyroid section.Also many people get hypothyroid in the beginning from anemia, which means low iron and many of these anemias are caused by malabsorption of vitamin B12 by the body!

@mayoclinic whenever I get a bee sting is it normal for me to start sweating uncontrollably and then my throat will swell and I can't breathe?
bjapan96 (7 лет назад)
@Irondo11 if you live in california ask your doctor for medical cannabis and buy a vaporizer if you have an emergency reaction, inhale the vapors from the cannabis, which doenst have thc so you dont get high (just the good effects of it) and it will dialate your bronchial tubes resulting in easier breathing of course call 9/11 if you have it still

@yjllsapath thats not true
yjllsapath (7 лет назад)
I took the h1n1 shot. As the result I became anaphylaxis now. Now I can't have fish, shrimp or aspirns. I never sued anyone before, but if I could, I would. I read the insert on the internet about the h1n1 shot and anaphylaxis is one of the many side effects it caused. I really miss Long John Silvers. I had several episodes of anaphylaxis shock before I figured it out. Now I have to have an epi pen everywhere I go. This is bull, and the pens cost me $180.00 each.

@vickiormindyb benadryl needs time to start working, PS: it has little to no effect against anaphylaxis, since its an antihistamine which needs time to work, plus its not a major vasoconstrictor of arteries.

@rosiejuly3 - Also regarding exercise symptoms - check to see if your blood is low in iron and get your blood TSH (thyroid) checked for hypothyroidism! Having a low thyroid, can in itself make you more sensitive to allergens and reactions!
La Poetessa (8 лет назад)
Anaphylactic shock is so scary, I have been dealing with it my whole life and only two years ago was I diagnosed with Systemic Mastocytosis...in other words, almost everything makes me go into shock including the slightest bit of stress! And there are many other horrible symptoms! Anyone who has many allergic triggers should ask about Mastocytosis, took doctors over 3 decades to catch on with me and I nearly died too many times to count!! Wishing everyone health and safety!

i dont know what they gave me, as i dont remember. but i flat lined in the hospital
quinnalora (8 лет назад)
well you can get twinject , which have two doses ( but there has been a massive recall on them). It doesnt save your life, it prolongs it for about 10 minutes while you go to the hospital.
Mayo Clinic (8 лет назад)
Dr. Decker says: These may be allergic reactions, and recommend visiting an allergist.

When I take aspirin, which I do not anymore, the insides of my mouth, cheeks, tongue, lips and throat swell, and it becomes really hard to swallow. Once a co-worker insisted that I take a Tylenol, and it happened again, although mildly. I was at the head of a conference table, and I noticed people staring. Can you tell me if this is the same thing? When I've taken penicillan, my chest feels painful and deflated and constricted. It reminds me of times I had severe asthma when I was young.

Shellfish in seafood Alfredo at Olive Garden when I was in the military was what set off my first and only attack. I was never allergic to shellfish before that point. I hadn't had shrimp since I was five before the attack. Now I avoid all seafood like the plague.
Kimberly Muttart (9 лет назад)
Short for epipen. Anyone has anaphylaxis must carry at least one at all times. In my case I don't have allergies, but still get anaphylaxis. Mine is a problem with a my bone marrow releasing abnormal mast cells in the system which than can cause your histamines to react like you are anaphylaxis. Unfortunetly, I like with daily possibilities of another attack. I suffer with symptoms everyday, because this is what my immune is doing 24/7
tranurse (9 лет назад)
i have had 2 anaphlatic reactions. i have developed allergies to penicillin and cephalosporins. the first was after surgery, i was in the hospital, so it was treated quickly. last night i took penicillin for a sinus infection, i told my doc about the cephalosporin allergy, but he prescribed it. i took one, and 2 hours later, my husband was rushing me to the e.r. . now i get to carry an epi pen with me. fun.
Kimberly Muttart (9 лет назад)
Yeah, I made it through that one, but had 5 more attacks in the month following, not clams and not allergies. They now call it Idiopathic Anaphylaxis. I'll be seeing a specialist soon. Thanks
Kimberly Muttart (10 лет назад)
I just had my first anaphylactic attack this past Sunday and it was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. I had no idea I was allergic to clams, but that is what did it. I keep my pen close by now.
