Was this a reaction?
I was staying at my sister-in-law's home and made a simple dinner of regular Barilla pasta and butter. Within 20 minutes of beginning to eat, I had violent stomach cramps, diahrerra, feeling of thickness in my throat and panic. (I do suffer from panic attacks also). I took benadryl and it did not seem to help. I could not calm down. My sister-in-law and her family do eat nuts in their home. I ended up calling 911. My pulse ox was 99, my blood pressure was fine. The ER doc said it was not an allergic reaction. He said it probably was gastritis caused by the butter. But could it have been an allergic reaction to any nut residues that might have been in the kitchen? Help! I am so confused. I now feel like I don't know when to call 911 and when not to.
