Sonu Nigam, the popular Hindi cinema playback singer, revealed he was hospitalized in Mumbai last week after suffering a severe reaction to seafood.
The singer posted a number of photos of himself in the hospital on Instagram along with the message:
Thanks for your concern and love. Now that you know that I am returning back from Jeypore Orissa after managing a concert last night, I now don’t mind sharing how I was the day before yesterday.
Lesson for all of us, never ever ever ever take a chance with allergies. Sea food in my case. If Nanavati Hospital wasn’t near by, my trachea would have swollen up further and lead to asphyxiation.
It is unknown whether Mr Nigam carries epinephrine due to his severe food allergy.
We urge all our readers with food allergies to always take 2 epinephrine auto-injectors along everywhere, every time!
