OK , now this spring I have really had my hands full. Does anyone on here have alpha-gal from a tick bite? Recently my wife has been fighting extremely high blood pressure and some meds was doubled. I had to take her to the emergency room three times in the middle of the night. She would break out in hives with itching so bad she could not stand it. Her lips would swell up like she was hit hard in her mouth with swelling all over her face. There would be knots and whelps on her that looked like she had been bitten by a five pound mosquito. We asked doctors and they said that it is from a allergic reaction to meds , BUT these are the same meds she has taken for years but is now taking more of them. About a month ago she had a tick on her front upper part of her leg. I have been thinking about what can be causing this severe allergic reaction and we are leaning to red neat. That is our opinion and not the doctors. She has eaten chicken for the last few days and she seem to have cleared up to normal. Anyone else had this and what symptoms did you have?
