In brief: Like anaphylaxis

Same as anaphylaxis but not due to allergy.
Same symptoms such as hives, shortness of breath, wheeze, low blood pressure, loss of consciousness and possibly death.

In brief: Her some difintion

Anaphylaxis is defined as "a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death".
[1] it typically results in a number of symptoms including an itchy rash, throat swelling, and low blood pressure. Common causes include insect bites, foods, and medications.

Anaphylactoid reactions are like anaphylaxis, that Dr. Hadied described, but do not require antibodies and happen when something directly activates certain cells in the immune system, and causes them to do the things that occur in anaphylaxis. The resulting symptoms are similar.
