I had been enjoying shrimp for a very long time with no reactions or incidents. I loved shrimp! My favorite seafood. Then one day, while eating out with two of my friends, I had a severe reaction to the shrimp I was enjoying for lunch. I had to leave work, go to the doctor to get an injection to combat the reaction, then go immediately home to recover. I was very sick and could not understand why. That was probably close to 10 years ago and I have only had shrimp one time since that day – just to see if I was allergic after so many years. I had no reaction but after looking into shrimp and seafood – I am pretty certain I understand why now. I have not had any since that day and I have lost my taste for any type of seafood.
Have you had any poor experiences with seafood?
