Allergic reaction
    #4008336 - 04/03/05 01:39 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hello fellow community,

Last night I tripped off the first batch of Ecuador's on PF Style cased cakes.  It was a very small flush (only 2 shrooms) and the cake looked normal (I've have many years of experience).  Initially the mild trip started out very normal and expected.  But a couple hours after ingesting, the trip became unexpectedly turbulent, I was unable to focus on anything coherently.  About an hour later, I started experiencing severe stomach pains and heart burn (which I felt before on shrooms but not to this extent).  This only lasted about 10 minutes and transformed to itchy and tingly sensations throughout my entire body, especially my face.  When I went to check the mirror, I saw a horrific site!  My face and neck was very red and a little swollen, and I had localized rashes and what appeared to be insect bites all over my body!  :confused: This subsided 2 hours later.

Now, I've taken plenty of shrooms before, and this was a small quantity.  I'm thinking there was some contamination in the cake, but the cake and shrooms looked healthy (except for some strange looking puff ball aborts).  Has any one ever experienced something like this, and what could have caused it?

Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.  God Bless ! :smile:

Puffyness and redness can definatly be an allergic reaction. I supose it could be an unseen bacteria or somthing?

I am not too sure but it does sound like an allergic reaction. I would be careful eating mushrooms in the future.

Perhaps it was something else you were exposed to, besides the mushrooms..just a coincidence?

I don't believe it was a coincidence, I've never experienced a reaction like this to anything. I know it was the shrooms since, I could feel it through my body. I didn't eat anything before or after the trip that would cause this. Could it be a bad batch maybe? I did leave the shrooms in a bag for 36 hours in the fridge before I ate it, maybe that had something to do with it?

I've also experienced this. I even keep a bottle of zantac nearby to help with the heartburn. I beleive it's bacteria, because it doesn't happen when I make tea, or with dry mushies. It only seems to happen really bad with fresh ones.

If you speak to an allergist about this - and my cousin has pretty bad allergies and he goes to one a bit - its probably pretty unlikely that your reaction was from some tiny bacteria or mold, since we inject these all the time on foods that we keep in the fridge, etc. If you get a type of bacteria or mold growing on your msuhrooms or substrate, chances are it is an airborn variety that has been living in your house for some time, and if youve never ahd trouble with it before, i find it hard to believe that the injection of a microscopic amount of it (consdiering you saw no signs of contamination), makes it unlikely that this is teh culprit.
Id hate to burst your bubble, but it may have been the shrooms themselves.
Mushrooms are listed as one of the top 8 foods that cause allergic reactions.

Thanks for everyone's feedback. I've eaten all kinds of mushrooms before and never had an abnormal reaction. I've grown many strains of cubensis before (and ate them in large quantities) without any sort of major adverse reaction. Could it be possible to be allergic to only a certain strain of a mushroom? (i.e. allergic to an equador and not a cambodian?) My guess would be no since they are all cubensis.

I know a dude who ate eggs every day for breakfast and when he turned 59 he suddenly became highly allergic to them out of the blue.
But it was probably something else - just try cubies again and see...
