It was probably from an overdose of MSG.  I avoid that stuff like the plague!  :puke:

I think you might be right. I got it at a fast food joint, a nice dim sum restaurant, and Panda. None of this happened before I took amoxy. My inner conspiracy theorist is brewing.

I'm not taking anything ending with -cillin unless I know I won't have a reaction.

Be very very careful with this. I had the same thing happen to me when I was 10 years old. 3 years ago I was in the ER with major pain from an infection and forget to mention my allergy and had a severe reaction.

Someone I know says he can't take penicillin, and he told the nurse that.  Her response was a laugh and a "sure you can't." or something like that, and then she gave it to him.  He said that he just fell limp to the floor and she was in shock.  He was okay, but it was a rather stupid thing for the nurse to do.

Sounds like a good lawsuit ready to happen.
