A weirdness.

At Diesel tonight, I had what appeared to be the beginnings of an anaphylactic reaction. Weird thing? I hadn't had anything that could have set it off; I hadn't had anything to drink for over an hour, and hadn't eaten in four.

So. Tingling, starting with the mouth and spreading outward over my face; them numbness (not total). Was flushed. And a little weakness, scattery thoughts. This lasted for about... 20 minutes? Then it subsided gradually... and came back about ten minutes later, but worse, with my lower lip feeling like it had been shot full of Novocaine. :(

Aaaand then it went away.

o.O

I seem to remember the face-flushed-and-tingly thing being one of the side effects of Trileptal. But that didn't come with numbness. And, well, I've been off Trileptal for two years now.

o.O

Also I have had a lower-right-eyelid tic for two days, but that's probably unrelated. Just setting it down for the record.

feste_sylvain suggested that tonight's thing might have been triggered by me hugging someone who'd been using a soy-based body product, but yeesh, I hope not, as that would be an all-new sensitivity. Like, an order of magnitude.

I am discomfited.

...on the bright side, my hair looks great.
