Re: Vasovagal response to Shellfish?

From: J


I am mildly allergic to shellfish. I usually take an allergy pill when I eat shrimp or lobster since I love it so much. I can get an upset stomach on occasion. The stomach cramps/pain can lead to a VV reaction. I would see if you can get tested for food allergies.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
