Se alergy specialist: Anaphylactic reactions are life threatening. Chances are that you have enviromental exposure to a precipitant. May need medications on hand to use immediately a reaction starts while the cause is been figured. Good luck.

Anaphylaxis: You should be evaluated by an allergist, a condition called idiopathic anaphylaxis ir exercise induced anaphylaxis needs to be workes up. Consult an allergist sooner than later. You should also carry an Epipen (epinephrine) on you at all times.

Is it anaphylaxis?: Have you seen an allergy specialist to do extensive blood work for evaluation? Most anaphylaxis is idiopathic. Have you been evaluated for systemic mastocytosis.
