Given food that had cheese in it on Thurs afternoon. Thought I noted the taste but told myself no, b/c restaurant made it clear no dairy. Late Friday night started having problems breathing. Now (Sat) intermittently gasping like a fish on dry land.
This is a delayed Type IV hypersensitivity reaction, say the interwebs. When you get a reaction about 48 hrs after the 'initial insult'. It's slow b/c it requires replication of T cells that have an antigen to one of that food's proteins on their surface.
This is similar to what happens in #celiac. It's also possible for the response to come from basophils or eosinophils. Sometimes it's IgE-based, sometimes it's not. It appears we know little, or I feel there'd be sub-classifications for the reaction types.
