I had an episode of sudden onset allergy symptoms this afternoon, but i hadnt eaten any of my known allergens and the only other allergens I had been around was peanut butter, which I had not eaten so could cause a reaction. what might have caused this?

      &, you’re probably way too young to know this, lol, but your screen name is also the title of a really great Todd Rundgren song. :)

      I have MCAS & am currently in a flare up, so I am in hyper-reactive state. But, I also have CIRS, so mold(unavoidable in humid climate) causes reactions, too. You may be reacting to an airborne allergen like dust or mold. Since mold is mycotoxin(i.e., toxic to everyone, but even more so to those of us who are reactive to it), I’d look into that, first. Either way, wish you luck, & hope you can figure out trigger!!!

        @MeeB333 thanks! I've had mcas mentioned to me before as I'm currently undergoing testing for more sever types of EDS. And I know I'm allergic to mold containing foods like mushrooms, so airborne mold is a real possibility, thanks!

          @hello.its.me - I am also presumed to have EDS. If you react to foods in the mold/fungi family(I cannot eat mushrooms, either, but I can take medicinal mushrooms from Chinese Medicine practitioners.), then CIRS is a very likely possibility. Sorry U may be joining our crappy club, ;P but super glad & grateful to be potentially helpful! Good luck!! ;) :)

One possibility could be mast cell activation syndrome. In the simplest terms, it’s like an ongoing allergic reaction. Around 3-4pm your body naturally has a “histamine dump,” which often causes people with this condition to feel symptoms around that time of day. Another possibility is that you have developed a new allergy. Hormonal changes can turn something you're not allergic to into something that triggers an allergic reaction. It's recommended to get allergy tests done if you think you are developing new allergies.
