Earlier on I had Chinese food, although a few hours after my lips started to swell, my eyelids are still red and sticky, my pupils started dilating and then my throat started to feel like it was closing up on me, I also had a red rash on my chest which has disappeared and this is the first time that this has ever happened to me, I'm scared, Should I go to the hospital now or leave it?

Thanks,

Jonathan

    First thing that came to mind is MSG, whenever I eat chinese food it's always without MSG added in the cooking.....many restaurants here in the U.S. do not use MSG now......but many still do.

    Chinese food is yummy, but truly not the healthiest, lots of sodium and other cooking chemicals......drink lots of water and keep calm...I would not go to hospital.....it's probably like I mentioned. j
