I'm ok, it's not another I'm dying do I need to see a doctor thread but my throat did just swell in reaction to something I just ate (I think it was pesto). I often have a reaction to food in my mouth, often tomatoes will swell my lips and tongue and occasionally nuts although not peanuts there is no ryhme or reason to it sometimes a food will be fine and other times I'll react to it.
It usually only lasts an hour or so. My dad suffered with the same problem for years and often his throat would swell and he'd have to spend a night in hospital and it would be fine.
This is the first time I've had swelling in my throat it happened very quickly and I could feel my breath catching iyswim, it has subsided now and I'm fine, but do I need to see anyone? I think I probably do thing is I've never been to a doctor about the mouth and tongue thing and my dad is abroad atm, will they be able to look at his records to help me iyswim?
Yes I'm certain it's the pine nuts. This sounds crazy but whenever it happens in my mouth tongue and lips I can tatste whatever it is that has triggered it. I have finally managed to speak to my dad and he has urged me to go in today as it was not unusual for it to happen to him more than once a day after the initial swelling. It lasted about 4 years for him and then stopped, he would also get hives etc and they were unable to pin it down to one food.
