Used to eat shrimp a lot. Then had coconut shrimp, nuts in a bar-->hives. Nuts are ok. If I sample shrimp, could I have severe reactions or anaphylactic shock?

In brief: Shrimp

Probably not. At a bar what else did you drink or eat?.
How was the coconut shrimp prepared? Have you eaten coconuts safely before. I you are concerned, talk to your doctor. Have an allergy test for both. He might ask you to bring a few shrimps to his office and make sure with you.
