Since I was young I had this allergic reaction to eating some seafood's like shrimp and crabs. I couldn't eat them for when I do my heart palpitated and would have flat line on the monitor. It really a major issue. But when I got married and had kids surprisingly my food cravings we're those and nothing happened to me. Just few months ago I learned that my allergies on food was turned to allergy on some medicine..one of them is ibuprofen and another was mefenamic.anything with these content made my eyes get really swollen. (The picture on top was taken last week when I accidentally take medical ibuprofen to relieve my headache)

Allergic on many things..I could not have white flowers or vicks.. just by it's smell irritates my nose. I just settle with biogesic instead. Or a good massage will do.

You should have an allergy test to see those that could trigger your allergies. My nephew had that test when he was young and we found out that he's allergic to pollens, dusts, and cockroach. His eyes are swollen just like yours whenever he would have some allergies. My other nephew has allergies on ibuprofen also.

Lucky for the kids now. But way back on my time there was no available test like that in the Philippines. (Way back 1984) And now I don't even think there is any available doctor who specialised on that genetic allergies.

I am also allergic to seafoods. But I still love to taste or eat them. After an hour, I have difficulty in breathing and sometimes I will have stomach cramps.

OMG! You have to be very careful in taking medicines. Don't take ibuprofen because it's for muscle pain reliever Maybe a paracetamol or biogesic is fine with you.

Oh wow the reaction to seafood you have sounds very scary and deadly. Your eyes look terribly swollen from the medicine it looks so painful. I hope the swelling went down quickly. Things like that you can be given a shot to relieve the symptoms. You have very severe reactions to the things you are allergic to.

I am not really sure if I am OK with naproxine. Probably next time I will have a skin test first before I take in any prescribed medicine.

Oh my goodness. Please be careful. Maybe you can find some all natural remedies or other meds for headaches and pain. The doc will know of some I am sure. Maybe search for all natural homeopathic pain relief.
