30 Bananas a Day!

I had a curious reaction to some spicy tomato sauce last night at a restaurant. Ordered a plain salad and they were nice enough to whip up some tomatoey "dressing" on the side for me....except it was spicey. Not terribly spicy, but definitely noticeable. In the past, I've eaten plenty of spicier dishes with no obvious reactions.

 

Anyway, I ate about a tablespoon's amount in total of the sauce with the salad and within 5 minutes of tasting it, my ears began to grow very warm and red/swollen. Then the part of my neck just around my ears started itching uncontrollably and I began to break out in hives which proceeded to spread down the back of my neck, to my chest, shoulders, stomach arms etc, over the course of the following 4-5 hours. It was FREAKY. I felt fine otherwise...just very itchy and hot but boy, did it spook me. 

 

So for any of you wondering if what they say about spices and certain herbs (that they're irritants to the body) is true....IT'S TRUE!!!!

Really? I'd be afraid of them trying to stick anti-histamines and/or other drugs inside of me. I just drank LOTS of water for the rest of the evening

 

Megan Alyssa, you got the same reaction from eating something spicy? Was it the first time? How bizarre...

sounds like an allergic reaction to something. Please go to the emergency doctor next time. Your throat could swell up which is life-threatening!!!

I know! this has happened only once before since my LFRV journey, when I ordered a "papaya salad" at a thai place and it turned out the be fire on a plate. I swallowed one bite as to not be rude and spit it out but that was enough to cause a milder version of yesterday's hive flare up.
