The last several times I have eaten ocean fish (tilapia

Resolved Question:

The last several times I have eaten ocean fish (tilapia Haddock cod) I have gotten sick to my stomach vomited cold sweats etc. I'm sure I'm not getting food poisoning that often. I like fishe but this keeps happening. It last also. It is not over in an hour or so but lasts several hours to a couple of days. Could this be some sort of wierd allergy. I ate fish that was caught from a fresh water lake but did not get sick.

This can indeed be a case of sea food allergy .

Often patients are only allergic to certain species of fish but are able to eat other species without problems.Seafood allergies are usually treated with an exclusion diet and vigilant avoidance of foods that cause allergy .
