Health Insurance for Anaphylaxis
Recent studies show that the occurrence of anaphylaxis is increasing, especially among those under 20. In New York alone, the rate of hospitalization for anaphylaxis in patients under the age of 20 increased almost four times in little over 1 1/2 decades.
Anaphylaxis, a potentially fatal allergic reaction, can occur within minutes or even seconds of exposure to something to which you are allergic. Common anaphylactic reactions are to insect bites, latex and certain food and medication. The sudden flow of chemicals released by the immune system during anaphylaxis may cause you to go into shock or cause a sudden drop in blood pressure, narrowing of the airways and irregular breathing. Typically, these symptoms occur in one location of the body, but in severe cases more than one part may get affected at the same time.
Some of the common symptoms associated with anaphylaxis are:
1. Extreme skin reactions like pale or flushed skin, hives along with itching
2. A feeling of heat or warmth
3. Sensation of lump in the throat
4. Rapid and weak pulse
5. Diarrhea, vomiting and nausea
Some other symptoms include:
1. Stomach cramps
2. Chest tightness
4. Abdominal pain
5. Slurred speech
