Strange reaction eating spleen
« on: September 02, 2008, 06:59:17 am »
On Wednesday for dinner I was eating raw spleen. This is the first time I had the spleen. About 15min into eating it I started to get a severe pain in my chest(not like heart burn or indigestion) The pain was so bad I had to lay down. I got up frequently to get some water, but the pain continued until I got to sleep hours later. When I woke up the next day my neck and lower back were in so much pain I could barely move, my kidneys were also very sore. The next day however the chest pain was gone. The day after that (Friday) I still had the kidney pain, but the muscle tightness in my neck and back were gone. On Friday I also developed a fever. Saturday the fever was gone and the kidney pain was minimal. Today I am fine.

I have been searching and searching for what could have happened....with no luck. My first thought was that maybe something naturally in the spleen caused this reaction, but that seemed less likely the more I searched. Then I considered that it may have been a chemical residue left from either the washing or the inspection process. There was a taste to the spleen that seemed unnatural I don't know how to describe it (and yes I tasted it before the chest pain) If I had to compare it to something it would be menthol.

The only thing I found that would have been added by the USDA inspector is lactic acid, which does not match up. Does anyone have thoughts or input on this?

Don't eat it again.
Or you can be a scientist and self experiment.

My kidneys took too hard of a beating to try it again anytime soon

Maybe the animal was sick.
My current patient I'm helping has an enlarged spleen.
I think the spleen is in charge of destroying old blood.
Spleen they say is part of the lymphatic system.

Thanks for your experimenting.  I'm not eating spleen then.

I have had one package of spleen (shared with my cat) from Slanker's before and didn't have any bad reaction. Just putting it out there so as to not see spleen completely demonized.

I don't want to demonize spleen. I will more than likely eat it again. My thoughts are that it was something from the cleaning/inspecting process as it had a chemical-like taste to it.

Yes, I've eaten spleen before as well with no bad reaction. It actually made me feel kind of high for a while
