Allergies

Seafood allergy

12/19/2008

Question:

I have just discovered I have an allergy to seafood after being in pain for 3 years. My pain consisted of extreme soreness in particular to one of my feet. Basically I could not walk properly in the morning or if I sat down it would take time to walk properly. Other symptoms were muscles pain, or pain around the muscle and it felt as though my leg was blocked. I believe it was prawns causing the pain. My question to you is, would I have some sort of build up of acid in my leg? It still feels rather congested. Is there some sort of testing I can do?

Answer:

You may have other symptoms after ingestion of prawns. However it is highly unlikely that your leg symptoms are related to prawn allergy, You should be checked for either a vascular or neurological problem.
