Moved from December thread because I meant to post here:
I just had a fairly bad reaction to something. I was driving back from picking up my Azure Standard order, eating dates I had just gotten (definitely cc), with a bag of chicken feed (definitely full of wheat) I grabbed from the dropsite for someone else, and I stopped at Goodwill to use the bathroom and check the tag sale. The bathroom reeked of fragrance from a cleaning product. After I peed, I went to wash my hands and looked in the mirror and my face, neck, chest, and ears were all red/blotchy and bubbly and I felt very hot, itchy, and faint. I washed my hands quickly and went outside. I was scared so I called my friend who I knew would be coming from the dropsite and asked her to stop and check on me. By the time she got there, my face wasn't very red anymore and I was feeling better so I decided to drive home. It's been about an hour and a half and all the redness is gone, I feel better but still a little itchy. Kind of freaked out though. Never had a reaction like that. I think despite the confounding factors, I am leaning towards a reaction to the cleaning product at Goodwill since it went a way fairly quickly once I was outside.
I did used to get panic attacks at the mall, and I know smell sensitivity was one of the main triggers. I haven't had any problems in a long time. The last time I can remember was almost 2 years ago when I was using Mrs. Meyer's cleaning product with geranium fragrance to clean the kitchen. I sprayed it and immediately got all light headed and hot. I didn't notice at the time if I turned red or anything, but this time I wouldn't have noticed how red I was except the mirror was right there.
