Default I think something tried to kill me(UPDATED)

I just got back from urgent care, I started feeling my top lip swell yesterday evening, took a couple benadryl and figure it would be OK. Got up this morning and it was still swollen and as the morning progressed, my whole top lip and my bottom lip nearly doubled in size. I looked like Bubba from Forrest Gump. Then, I felt my tongue swelling, so I went to the Urgent Care.

They checked my vitals and my heart rate was 100+ and they were debating on calling an ambulance, but first put me on an IV drip with 3 or 4 different meds and some kind of breathing treatment.

Finally, after a couple hours, everything seems to have gotten normal. I had to call a buddy to come get me cause the doc refused to let me leave if I was driving.

They still didn't know what happened, the only thing different is that I have been on a Z pack to clear up a bronchial infection and anaphylaxis is one of the rare side effects of the drug, but who knows. I would of thought I would of had the reaction on the first pills and not the last.

I take most things in stride, but after seeing the panic of the doctors and nurses, I realized how serious it was getting.

Anyway, I'm back home with different prescriptions and an Epi Pen in case it does it again and I'm by myself. (which is everyday at work)

Scary how fast things can go bad.

Glad you are ok and hope you stay healthy. If you miss your hunting trip the statewide deer mortality rate will decrease 17% this year.

Glad your better, probably gave you solumedrol in your iv and followed up with albuterol and atrovent updraft. Good call giving yourself Benadryl, really good choice!
