Female - 60 years Not diabetic No Kidney disease Allergic to MSG and Sulfites and Sulfa Drug. No Heart problems Swelling takes 4 to 7 days to go down. Not my legs, just my feet. No Meds at the moment.
No recently started meds.
It just pops out of nowhere at any time. It's very painful when it happens inside the body. When you can see and feel it on the outside it often is accompanied by an itch, especially on the feet and hands. You can actually watch your tongue grow until it comes out your mouth. Emergency Hosptial? Yes. They have nothing to give without Sulfites. HELP
I do not accept this diagnosis. I specified that I have a serious sulfitie allergy. There are sulfites in Benydryl, epinephrine, asprin etc., non of which have needed thank goodness.
Now I need an antidote to sulfites. The swelling is nothing like ankle swelling, it is hard swelling and major in the area affected at the time. I am thankful that it has never affected my breathing yet. Again, I know people with these types of swelling that you mention, but this is nothing like that.
The allergist has already ruled out angioadema. Why is the SULFITE issue not being addressed? Do you have an antidote to this serious reaction? I am desperate!
It is unfortunate that I cannot find an answer to my health issue with you. I have found the diagnostic results to be unsatisfactory, therefore, I would like to cancel and have my deposit returned immediately. Thank you.
