I hope someone can provide some answers.

Four days ago, I took a liquid mltiminerals (was deficient)

Reaction was not typical allergic reaction.

It felt as if I had something stuck in the throat.
The tongue was not swelling, I did not have hives,
no wheezing, but still felt as if something stuck at the
back of the throat. I went to ER, and they checked.
No swelling. This lasted for 6 hours. Yet, when I drank
water, it did't flow smoothly at the back of the throat.

Doctors and allergists to date, don't know.
(I had similar a few years back)

The following day, I reacted to cheese, tingles in the lips,
and cucumber, as well as the same sensation in the throat.

Yesterday and today, everything I tried eating caused the
same sensation of something stuck at the back of the throat.
When this happens, I try drinking water - it does not flow
smoothly, as when I don't have this sensation at the back of the throat.

I need to eat, I am hungy and weak...

What could this be?

Is this how an anaphylactic reactions starts, but
does not develop further? I understood it was the airways
or the bronchiles that are affected.

I read neurological involvement as in TPRV and NMDA receptors
which can cause "sensations" triggering something akin to allergic
reactions and MCS from which I also suffer.

I also read that the vagus nerve may be implicated.

Thanks for your input.

We are not doctors here but hopefully someone will come along soon that can relate to what you're going thru. I hope you find the answers you need.

Yes, hum, doctors don't know.

I was wondering if this is how anaphylaxis
starts, or could be some slight reaction to
foods inflammation reaction.

I am unable to take meds because there
is a metabolizing issue.

You maybe experiencing GERD...
Ask your doctor to order a Modified Barium Swallow. They will be able to XRay your throat as you eat and see what's going on.

Thanks, Joy, its definitely not GERD.

I read about it, and some friends of mine
suffer with it. But good point.

There is a type of Gerd called silent Gerd. You have a feeling of something stuck in your throat all of the time. I had that.

Was it accompanied with tinglings in the lips and cheeks?
Did it last for six hours or so?
And when you drank water, did it flow smoothly??

Will look further in silent GERD

Water didn't flow smoothly because GERD damaged my epiglottis with acid.
I don't recall the tingling feeling- that sounds like allergy.
