“If you’re allergic to bananas, do you go into bananaphylactic shock?”

People who have banana allergies don’t go into “bananaphylactic” (banana + anaphylactic) shock, but there are jokes. “For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs...He turns blue & chokes to death. Eric is Bananaphylactic Shock Man” was posted on Twitter by Marc C. on November 22, 2010. “RT @MicrowaveH3RO: If you’re allergic to bananas, does that mean you can go into bananaphylactic shock?” was posted on Twitter by Peter Petrelli on June 30, 2012.

“Who the hell called it banana allergy and not bananaphylactic shock” was posted on Twitter by doug&! on May 1, 2015.


Healthline
What is anaphylactic shock?
For some people with severe allergies, when they’re exposed to something they’re allergic to, they may experience a potentially life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis. As a result, their immune system releases chemicals that flood the body. This can lead to anaphylactic shock.

When your body goes into anaphylactic shock, your blood pressure suddenly drops and your airways narrow, possibly blocking normal breathing.
