What is Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis?
Have you ever joked “I’m just allergic to exercise?” after a lackluster workout—or even used it as an excuse to get out of going to the gym?
Chances are, you’re just a little out of shape or tired. But some people really are allergic—at least, they exhibit symptoms after or during exercise that are identical to symptoms of someone experiencing an allergic attack. And it’s no joke. It can be very serious—and in a few tragic cases, even fatal.
