I know some people get asthma with exercise, but is there such a thing as anaphylaxis from exercise?

In brief: Yes
Can be from exercise alone or from eating certain foods before you exercise called food-exercise induced anaphylaxis.
Best to keep records of when episodes occur and what the circumstances were.

If you develop the initial symptoms of EIA STOP DON'T RUN FOR HELP which will only make the reaction worse. The early symptoms of EIA are any combination of: ●Diffuse warmth and/or flushing ●Generalized pruritus ●Urticaria (hives are usually 10 to 15 mm in diameter or larger, rather than the "punctate" hives normally seen in cholinergic/heat-induced urticaria) ●Sudden fatigue

In brief: Exercise anaphylaxis
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (eia) is a rare disorder in which anaphylaxis occurs after physical activity the symptoms may include pruritus, hives, flushing, wheezing, and GI involvement, including nausea, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea.
If physical activity continues, patients may progress to more severe symptoms as cardiovascular collapses.

In brief: Yes
Exercise induced anaphylaxis does indeed occur and it is unusual.
It can be food associated or not food associated. Any incidence of anaphylaxis needs a thorough eval by an allergist.

In brief: Yes
There is a rare diagnosis called food associated exercise induced anaphylaxis that can occur when the patient eats a certain food (usually wheat, celery, various nuts) and then exercises within 30-60 minutes of eating.
