Can Acid Reflux Cause Throat Swelling

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
    • Posterboy, thank you for your response!    Regarding magnesium, do you think relying on food sources like fruits, bananas in particular, is not enough? Just out of curiosity, when you started taking Magnesiums Citrate supplements, did you already consume enough fruits?
    • I fix meal packs in a food prep kit I got online called a jax pack I can fix enough for 1-3 days depending on which pack I fill. I find fixing full on meals in advance...think something that looks great bento style and smells amazing to make others jealous and make it look pretty so you can smile when you pull it out and brag about it.....I had to go the ego route with it sometimes to comfort myself. This allows me to go out and eat sometimes with others. I learned to cook and offer to cook for others...perhaps you can practice and amaze your friends by fixing up some gluten-free dish like crock pot roast, or chicken shred it and have a nacho party? Think of something easy, naturally gluten-free and can bring everyone together and amaze them with your cooking skills. 

      I have comprehensive list of gluten free foods, while we do normally suggest a whole foods only diet, there are options now days for instant meals, and all those standard kids quick foods like hot pockets, cheese sticks, nuggets, tots, corn dogs, etc now from other companies so you can also look the part and not feel that different.

      You are indeed very lucky to have medical services...I have not been able to see a actual doctor since last fall when I lost insurance....I have some friends who are doctors who help out and a chiropractor that will work with me but I can not get blood or labs done.....imagine having to trouble shoot everything and go hit and miss all the time.....
