Just to alert all who might read this: I may or may not be reacting to gluten in this story, It is a mysterious reaction. This is certainly not a normal reaction for someone with celiac disease.
First off to anyone who may be interested, my IgE is nearly non-existent, so my doctor told me that I don't have allergies. I got near a bag of flour being carried today. Another person, who has a gluten problem picked it up and carried it for me as I protested. Assume she is fine and dandy and does this all of the time. I followed the bag by a few feet, stood back as it was set down on a truck platform. There was no visible puff in the air, nor did I touch the bag. Over the next few minutes the glands in my neck felt swollen , my throat hurt, and my voice became husky. My face turned red on the forehead, cheeks, and chin. . My body simply tells me it doesn't like wheat.
Next time I go to grocery buyers club, perhaps I need to put on a mask?
