The failure to recognize anaphylaxis episodes when they occur is becoming an increasingly important issue as these life-threatening reactions become more common, says Dr. Estelle Simons.
"There’s this paradox. Despite anaphylaxis becoming more common, it is under recognized," the allergist and clinical researcher explained to Allergic Living. "The reason is: it’s not so easy to recognize." Simons, a past president of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) and the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and a professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Immunology at the University of Manitoba, says this is not only a problem for lay people â€" but also for medical professionals. Symptoms of anaphylaxis can include hives and itching; breathing problems (throat closure, wheezing or coughing); gastrointestinal distress (stomach cramps, vomiting or diarrhea); as well as faintness and passing out due to low blood pressure. But not all symptoms occur in every attack, and they may vary from one attack to another, even in the same person. Hives, for instance, are an obvious clue that someone might be reacting to a food or insect sting. But 10 per cent of people with anaphylaxis don’t get hives, says Simons. She notes that breathing problems can cause confusion over whether a person is suffering from anaphylaxis or an asthma attack. In an infant, they might be mistaken for choking. If someone is having their very first allergic reaction, he or she might not have a clue what’s happening to them. "Lack of recognition is a major issue for our patients and their families," says Simons. She stresses the need for greater public awareness, and urges physicians to tell patients about helpful resources such as FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) and Anaphylaxis Canada. “We need to get the message out," she says.

The allergic diseases are so interconnected, in fact, that immunologist Estelle Simons, MD, a past president of the AAAAI, proposed in a recent paper that the terms "allergic rhinitis" and "asthma" are confusing and should be done away with altogether.
Her proposed name change for both conditions is rhinobronchitis.
