Exercise Induced Anaphylaxis

Posted Nov 24 2009 10:02pm
This article has excellent information about anaphylaxis.

The symptoms I had were dead on to the "classic exercise-induced anaphylaxis."
Here's a brief description of those symptoms: "A prodromal phase is characterized by fatigue, warmth, pruritus, and cutaneous erythema. The early phase follows, with the urticarial eruption that progresses from giant hives (about 10-15 mm in diameter) to become confluent and may include angioedema of the face, palms, and soles. Then, the fully established phase occurs, which can include hypotension, syncope, loss of consciousness, choking, stridor, nausea, and vomiting and can last 30 minutes to 4 hours. The final phase is the late or postexertional phase, which is characterized by prolonged urticaria and headache persisting for 24-74 hours."

Eyes still on the puffy side today. And just a little bit on the tired side, but all the other symptoms are gone. One more day of complete rest and then back to running tomorrow.
