I have noticed lately that each time I eat grapes I get a flushing/tingling sensation on the front of my neck. It starts under my ears and moves evenly toward the front of my throat. It last for a few seconds then dies down.
Today I ate about 10 grapes and experienced a milder version of this experience. I followed the grapes with a pear and the sensation increased and has now gone on for about 5 minutes or so. It is also itching under my chin.
Any Idea on what could cause this? I have had the "tingling" sensation behind my ears when I eat citrus. Could I be allergic to citric acid?
