    I have an allergic reaction to all forms of beef (cow meat) when I eat it. However, it's not an instantaneous reaction or one that I have every single time I eat beef; rather, my body takes note every time I eat beef and then when it's at it's limit without warning the very next...

    Mosquito bites. If I get bitten by a mosquito,

    it always swells up enormously, and if it's in the wrong place it can end up being very bad. For example, as a little girl I was bitten by a mosquito near my left eye, and it swelled completely shut. Another time, when I was older, I was sleeping in the living room of our...

    My weird allergy is eggs.

    I'm okay if the egg is in baked goods. That doesn't bother me. Eggs in any other form make me sick. People are always so surprised that I'm allergic to them.

    Which is weird because its an endogenous Opiate (i.e. virtually identical to naturally-occuring chemicals in the brain). I should really get a Mecic Alert Bracelet for it in case I'm in a terrible car accident or something but for some reason I've never actually bothered.They're...

    Exercise. No I'm being serious.

    It's actually caused by histamine production through exercise. It also is why I'm even more sensitive to Benadryl's drowsy medicine (it contains an anti-histamine). Weird I know. It doesn't mean I can't exercise just that I have to take some form of an allergy medicine or my...

    Exercise. Well not really exercise,

    but the histamines it produces. I break out in splotches all down my arms and legs and get itchy. Luckily I have found all I need is an allergy pill before hand! Non drowsy though, I pass out easily to the regular antihistamines.

    A Vaccination

    Ok, so there's this series of vaccinations for hepatitis. I believe there's three shots in the series you get over a period of years, and you have to get them to enroll in school. So the first time i got one it made my arm go all numb and prickly, kind of like it was asleep, but...
