How to tell if you're allergic to shrimp?

I just had some shrimp scampi. I only ate two shrimp and right after my mouth and throat started to tingle. I'm also starting to itch a bit. My throat is also itching and it kind of hurt to swallow like something it stuck in my throat. Is this an allergic reaction? 


This is my first time ever having shellfish. I eat fish and nothing happens

    Have you ruled out that it could be the garlic? Otherwise sounds like an allergic reaction.

    Sounds like an allergic reaction.

    I have a friend who has a toxic allergy to iodine.  Iodine is found in all salt water seafood.  He once took a bite of some dip at a buffet that had crab meat in it, his throat swelled shut and he passed out within 30 seconds of taking the bite, woke up hours later in the hospital.

    I'd get that checked out before you eat any more seafood.
