I recently ate fish like 2 days ago it was a deep fried fish and at night i noticed a little bit of discomfort however the next day it was all good until i came at night  ( 6 PM ) ate fish it was just like 5 bites and i stopped because i did not like it however i started feeling not good, abdominal pain a bit, and like burning sensation on chest ( i do not have reflux as i have done the endoscopy not too long ago ) and then today i ate french fries and pizza but the french fries dip was with a barbecue i did not feel good at all after exactly 1 hour or 2 max i started feeling burning sensation in throat, chest and esopghagus then i started feeling the burning in my eyes and face and i would taste blood in my mouth but nothing is injured, difficulty swallowing and scratchy throat now as i was having a burning sensation and coughed a bit. Only to notice later that the bbq i ate contains fish..

So could it be fish allergy?

    It sounds like it could be a slight allergic reaction, John. I would consult with a doctor about this as soon as you can. And until you see a doctor, stay away from fish and other fried foods. Better to be safe. Many people develop allergies later in life, so it's possible! Feel better soon...

    Peace

      The thing is i've ate last friday tuna then saturday bbq sauce with fish then sunday fried fish and then monday also fried fish and today bbq sauce with fish, the constant exposure to fish seems to have taken effect a lot today unlike other days.

    I would think it's due to the fried fish and chips more than an allergy. I had to stop eating fried food for similar reasons as you! Heartburn, reflux and indigestion symptoms even now if I try to eat fryups. I have to take Omprazole every day as the reflux stll occurs. It may be that your gall bladder and pancreas can't tolerate such foods any more. Try eating a plain diet with no fat for awhile. If you cough or spit blood go th the doc pronto!

      Yes, that's another thought I had. It may be acid reflux. Fried food kind of catches up to you as you get older. When I turned 20, suddenly I couldn't handle greasy food constantly. Haha. But yes, John, change up your and see if it helps. If not, definitely see your GP. It doesn't sound serious though.
