Reaction causing chest pain
I am 19 and have had a peanut allergy since i can remember. In the last few years my reaction has changed significantly. I now suffer severe chest pain from my aesophagus spasming. This usually lasts around 20 minutes, but yesterday it happened, was the most severe pain i have ever experienced...and it has also lasted from 10:30am (continually severe for 1 hour) and has continued occational spasms, still occuring now (1pm the next day)
Is there anyone else who has come across this type of reaction? What do you do to relieve the symptoms? My doctor has never suggested me to have an epipen, but i am getting more paranoid as the reactions are getting worse.
Thanks in advance!
