Can Acid Reflux Cause Throat Swelling
0

6 posts in this topic

Last night I had a horrible time getting any sleep. My throat felt thick and a little swollen and it must of set off

sleep apnea because I would wake up frequently with a need to catch my breath.

I've been eating some blueberries and raspberries for the last 5 days after getting these big containers of them at Sam's. Thats the only thing different that I've been doing and also yesterday afternoon I had a cup of coffee in the afternoon to stay awake. I don't usually do that eigher.

I know those fruits are high in salicylates and and I may have a sensitivity to them. Those of you who are did you have this kind of reaction? I'm wondering if I should take something like zantac for awhile. My throat still feels thick.

Thanks, Gail

Gail this sounds like an allergic reaction, have you had any other symptoms like hives? If you are still feeling like you are having trouble breathing you should contact your doctor to be on the safe side.

Yes it might of been an allergic reaction. The symptoms are gone so I'm relieved about that. I just won't eat them anymore. It could be the berries itself or something they spray on them too, who knows. I already threw them away so I don't know where they came from.

I'll be tempted to try organic locally grown berries at the farmers market to find out. But I don't know still alittle rattled about it.

Thanks, Gail

Raspberries are one of the most contaminated foods (chemicals of all kinds - fungicides - pesticides). I will ONLY eat organic. They are THAT BAD!!

These are a list of the 20 most contaminated:

1. Peaches

2. Apples

3. Sweet Bell Peppers

4. Celery

5. Nectarines

6. Strawberries

7. Cherries

8. Pears

9. Grapes (Imported)

10. Spinach

11. Lettuce

12. Potatoes

13. Carrots

14. Green Beans

15. Hot Peppers

16. Cucumbers

17. Raspberries

18. Plums

19. Grapes (Domestic)

20. Oranges

I will only buy ORGANIC with these. And if they dont have, I skip.

:( That is a svere allergic reaction, the thing is that you could be eating say blue berries all your life and then one day wham you get an allergic reaction worse an Anaphylctic reaction. If I were you I would get a blood test : write down every thing that you ate that day and the day before ( incase you had a delayed reaction or there was cross cntamination) then write down the names of all the foods you love to eat and go to the food and Anaphylactic website and write down the 8 most commev foods that people are becomming allergic too then add sesame ( that is already included in Europe). Also add mold because that is what I found in my Blue Barries last night. When the Doctor asks you what do you want to be tested for ... voila you have your list also you can be tested for say Tuna, Salmon etc...seperately. I wlk around with an EPI- PEN that is incase I go to Anapylaxis, I also have chewable Benedryl not sure it is gluten-free ( I am looking for the ones that are liquid that comes in a seperate tube? I also have a bronchodialater, that is to open the airways if you have Asthma and you can tolerate black tea drink that it has a natural broncho healant taht is in the inhaler. After using an inhaler rinse your mouth you do not want to wind up with thrush. These blood tests are not reliable food allergies are very seriouse. My Doc. said never mind you got 0 on all the foods we tested you for you still are allergic depending on your symptoms hives. your throat shutting down and a sense of doom discoloration of the face.

That's interesting about mold because I do avoid anything with mold just because I've been told by a doctor to stay away from it. He did a test on me way back in the 80's. If I'm in a moldy inviroment I'll get extremely tired and weepy. I have to have dehumidiferiers going in the summer. Can't have peanutbutter etc. all those foods but I haven't looked at a list lately of mold containing foods. I've changed up my diet a few months ago and I've included fruits which I never eat except maybe an apple or pear.

I'm sure that's what it is but I will check into this since my reactions are getting more severe. Thanks for info on the website. Gosh its scary to think it might come down to carrying a epi pen. :( Back to listening to me instincts about what has caused me problems.

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
