I do not know if this will pass or if I am on a fast trip to the ER. I have had a strange reaction. I had just topped off my buckwheat pillow and about five minutes later I am having a very hard time breathing. Now I have had this pillow about seven years, and no problems. I do not have any allergys or asthma but it actually hurts to breathe, along with limited airflow and slight wheezing and a cough. A hot steamy shower did nothing and its been about 25 minutes, and it has subsided little. Am I on a fast trip to the Er or should I see if this will pass. I am wondering if it was alot of dust or something with the hock.gif?

Dying isn't fun. I'd be long gone by now.

I would have gone already.

No Doc but...


Call some medics or go to the hospital ASAP, ive heard allergies can onset suddenly after years around the same substance with no ill effects.

Let us know how it turns out.

I agree with the post whore


Get a little fresh air. On the way to the hospital.

I always have to laugh at people who stop in to ask an internet forum if they should go to the ER.

I have been outside for awhile. I am not that alarmed yet or to the point of hypoxia or passing out just a weird experience. It does seem to be subsiding somewhat. although it had taken awhile.

Even if it has subsided I would still recomend seeing a doc. Whatever you do dont go anywhere near that pillow again.

I am usually the first to shout dumbass for someone waiting... But myself, I am thinking well lets just see what happens. But seriously I am getting my stuff together to go to be safe. I had called my docs emergancy number to see what he recomends and decided to post while waiting, but he would more than likely say the same things your are. I wil l let you know what turns up.. thanks.

Anaphylactic shock

Benadryl, not sudafed. It's a histimine reaction.

Benadryl. Or run your ass to the ER. Or call an ambulance and get a shot of Epinephrine. Don't take the time to post here. RUN FUCKER FOREST RUN!

Allergic reactions are nothing to play with. They can actually cause your throat to close cutting off your airway completely. Go to the drug store if you dont want to go to the ER. Get Benadryl. Take two. Lay down. Drink Plenty of water.

EDITED TO ADD: DONT LAY DOWN ON THE BUCKWHEAT PILLOW! YOU HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO IT!!!!

Arfcom, I've just injested three bottles of vodka, 47 sleeping pills, 24 vicodin, an eight ball of heroin, and am sitting in my garage in my car with the engine running and a hose from the tailpipe to the passenger compartment, how long should I sit here before going to the ER?

ETA: I'm getting sleepy, should I go yet?
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 4:01:15 PM EDT
I have had pretty severe histamine reactions.... they typically come on strong, and subside slowly.... in a hour they are almost allways 90% better once they peak.

No big deal. I wouldnt sweat it..... but keep a phone close.

Quit your crying titty baby. You will be fine until tomorrow. Just sleep it off.

Alright, just listen. Everything is going to be fine. You're very high right now. You will probably be that way for about five more hours. Try taking some vitamin B complex, vitamin C complex.. if you have a beer, go ahead and drink it..

Just remember you're a living organism on this planet, and you're very safe. You've just taken a heavy drug. Relax, stay inside and listen to some music, Okay? Do you have any Allman Brothers?

You know, I'm against drug use myself, but I'm not going to lay that on you right now. Just mellow out the best you can, okay?

Don’t bother, you should be fine when you wake up.

Oh, and as they say on the gaming forums…

Can I have your stuff?

The one where Jimmy Carter (Dan Akroyd) is a drug counselor. Funny as hell. I seem to remember the line 'Fiery, demonic Holocost' from that same sketch.

Damn dude, anaphylaxsis is no joke also shortness of breath can also be a sign of a heart attack, jeez.

I can tell you all about Anaphylactic Shock, I nearly died from it when I was 7. It was extremely rapid in my case, luckily I only lived about 3 miles from Beaumont hospital in Royal Oak, MI. Luckily for me, my Aunt Lila pushed the pedal to the metal on 13 mile rd and that my cousin called my Aunt Marge who was the head ER nurse there at the time to have some nurses and docs ready. I couldn't breathe when I got into the hospital and I had swelled up. I was greeted by several nurses who drilled me with epinephrine, steriods, and antihistimines shots, in about 30 seconds the reaction was over. The Doc said I was lucky, any longer and I wouldn't have made it.

I tried a buckwheat pillow once. The wife and I woke up with a really stiff neck and headache.
It's supposed to be much cooler than normal pillows.
Returned it to the store the next day.

Chances are that since he has had this pillow for years, the buckwheat has produced "powder" from usage, when he opened it to top it off, he released this powder thus causing a reaction when he inhaled it.

hope he is OK

Then Salsa bought your slightly used pillow, and is now dying because he's allergic to your hair gel.

You Bastard! You killed Salsa!
