Last weekend, while out with a few of my friends, I got really sick (chest pain and vomiting). First thought was drinking... but I only had 2.5 drinks (and that would be pathetic). But I kept throwing up every 10 minutes until my stomach was empty and I was just hacking up foam.

Last night and today, same thing. This time without drinking. Went to the doc and it seems that a food allergy is bugging me. There were mushrooms in last night's dinner even though I'm allergic. My family loves mushrooms, and I wouldn't mind the taste had I not gone through this, but this is an experience that I hope will enlighten them that my food allergy is not hog wash and is actually true...

So... I have to eat the brat diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) for 4 days until my stomach stops swelling (the swelling of the stomach caused the chest pain). No more feeding me mushrooms...please..

no sometimes people with allergies quit breathing and shit. I was at a crawfish boil last year and one guy KNEW he was allergic to them and ate them anyways, his excuse was "I have been eating benadryl all week in preparatiuon" (for those of you who have never eaten crawfish, they are just that damned good) and he would be ok.... an hour later they called the ambulance because he was turning blue....his wind pipe had swollen shut...

Ah, I'm sorry to hear that. I have a bunch of food allergies myself, and while I never got a swollen stomach, I've definately vomited/dry heaved.

Are you allowed to drink ginger ale? It's always helped me.
