Seafood allergy



I have just discovered I have an allergy to seafood after being in pain for 3 years. My pain consisted of extreme soreness in particular to one of my feet. Basically I could not walk properly in the morning or if I sat down it would take time to walk properly. Other symptoms were muscles pain, or pain around the muscle and it felt as though my leg was blocked. I believe it was prawns causing the pain. My question to you is, would I have some sort of build up of acid in my leg? It still feels rather congested. Is there some sort of testing I can do?


You may have other symptoms after ingestion of prawns. However it is highly unlikely that your leg symptoms are related to prawn allergy, You should be checked for either a vascular or neurological problem.
