Tonight we had salmon for dinner.
Afterwards, I was making cookies and started getting an itch in my throat. Felt like something was caught.
I tried coughing…but it wouldn’t go away.
Then it became apparent to me. My throat was swelling. I panicked a bit.
I eat salmon at least once every two weeks. Probably more. I had a feeling like this before, but it was a couple years ago, and I can’t remember the kind of fish it was (I didn’t cook it).
I also felt the same the last time I ate shrimp (back in 2002). So folks, I think I’m allergic to salmon. I didn’t go to the ER. I just waited to see if it got bad.
After about 2 hours, it felt like it was going back to normal. I’ve been eating only fish the last couple weeks, but I think I’m going to cut that out until I get an allergy test done.
Just to be safe.
