On September 29 2013 I had a severe allergic reaction, I started itching and broke out in hives. My face turned bright red. I found some tylenol allergy tablets took two and laid down. I had to go to work so I forced my self up and jumped in the shower then drove to work. When I arrived my boss took one look at me and said, "What's wrong? You do not look good". She told me to go sit down. That's when everything started blurring around me. Coworkers were talking, I could not hear or understand what they were saying. Suddenly my left arm dropped as if it fell off my body. I used to be an EMT, so suddenly I knew and slurred out oh my God call 911 I am having a stroke. I do not know how long it was by the time the medics got there I snapped back and was really in shock.. No one at the hospital thinks that my allergic reaction had anything to do with my stroke! Does anyone know about reactions like this before a stroke?View Thread
